Baylor magnanimously gives itself a bowl ban (Update: No they haven't)


(P5_OR_BUST) #1

In a year where they are highly unlikely to make it to a bowl, they have generously banned themselves from playing in a bowl, to show the Big 12 and NCAA just how serious they are about punishing themselves for all the rapes condoned by their administration.

Not acceptable…Death penalty for 5 years plus pay every victim for the trauma they suffered would be a start to forgiveness…

The NCAA doesn’t have to wait until it’s proven in a court of law before they hand out punishment. But they would look pretty stupid punishing a school for something that later a jury rules never happened. So the NCAA is just being cautious at this point, I think.

I think the NCAA isn’t going to do anything considering all their sanctions on Penn State were later overturned.

This isn’t true; the NCAA has recommended that Baylor self-impose a bowl ban. However, Baylor being Baylor has refuted that they’re even considering it. Can’t give Baylor that much credit.

“It is irresponsible to report that Baylor is considering a football bowl ban for the 2018 season when in fact the NCAA investigation into the prior football staff and previous athletics administration remains active and ongoing,” the school said in a statement. “Additionally, it is premature to speculate as to what the University’s sanctions will be at this point in time.”

Fools. They should rip the bandaid off and do this, this year. They probably won’t be bowl eligible anyway. Abilene Christian might be their only win…and that’s with UTSA and Duke being their other non-conf games. Best case for them is 4-8 IMHO but I don’t even see that really.

They could just wait until after the season is over and they aren’t eligible anyways to say they had a bowl ban this year.

You have your own people turning on you BUT you’re not going to put a bowl ban because thats premature? lol I feel bad for Matt Rhule he should’ve stayed at Temple.

Exactly

I think they will decide after 9 or 10 games if they will self impose a ban or not

I too have messed up and I would like to annonce that I am self impossing a 2 year dating Scarlet Johansen ban.

Let the punishment fit the crime.

Then they will declare it a 2 year ban, counting last year as year 1 :sunglasses:
