Lauren Allswede, MSU's former Sexual Assault Counselor, is not happy that Dantonio said ESPN's reporting was false and she fired off new shots back at Dantonio and told him that he must accept his individual responsibility.
Some of her quotes:
"They don't appear to see the women as anything more than a number, or anything other than a threat to their reputation"
"They haven't been to a medical forensic exam, watched people jump when a picture is taken or wince when a swab is taken ... They don't see the shame these survivors feel -- the visceral collapse, the shaking leg, the knotted tissues, and averted eyes"
"Dantonio and Izzo should tell us how they are weak. They should tell us how they are scared, that they've worried no one will ever love them again. That they have difficulty concentrating or carrying on lighthearted conversation. ... And if you think that's unfair, why do you think it is fair for survivors?"
She point blank says that athletes accused of sexual assault got preferential treatment:
"Whatever protocol or policy was in place, whatever frontline staff might normally be involved in response or investigation, it all got kind of swept away, and it was handled more by administration [and] athletic department officials," Allswede, who worked at MSU for seven years, told Outside the Lines. "It was all happening behind closed doors. ... None of it was transparent or included people who would normally be involved in certain decisions."
I don't think Dantonio did himself any favors with his press conference, especially if Allswede is proven correct. Dantonio has already lied about the whole he has never had to deal with sexual assaults from his players before (unless he is completely incompetent and has no control).
