The responsible person in this mess is clearly the long time coach Jack Parker but he is untouchable,-- the Paterno syndrome.
He will issue some sanctimonious statements about doing better in the future and this will fade away.

This whole report is stupid. It said they have casual sexual encounters and they drink. Yeah so what? How come if female students have casual sexual encounters its celebrated? I just read a post that brought this hypocrisy up

U of Illinois Chicago promoting this type of double standard.
They want to try to control us.
It be one thing if these guys we all raping women. But having sexual encounters is THEIR choice.
