I think it had little to do with the speculative nature of the story and much to do with people apparently taking delight in a tragic event. There's plenty of room to appropriately discuss this news, in my opinion, but celebration is over the line.

I agree. Big news about a rival and about a growing concern within college and sports culture. Should be discussed here for sure. You asked why mgrowold predicted thread deletion and I explained why. There's nothing wrong with this thread's topic. We've yet to see if there will be anything wrong with this thread.

The story isnt about Michigan vs Michigan St.  Its a problem at all colleges. We have a problem in our society, where 1 in 4 girls in college face some type of sexual assualt.  That is a crazy number.  That is what we have to focus on and find a resolution.  Not whether Curtis Blackwell is a good or bad dude.

I'm not sure MSU could handle this situation any worse than they have.  As much as I dislike MSU, I feel badly for their whole athletic department.

Except Izzo.  He's an asshole.

Izzo is also out in the press defending Hollis and Dantonio, vouching for their character.  I did not want to start a thread over that (seems prone to turning into a shitshow almost immediately), but Izzo?

That Adreian Payne / Izzo staged friendship of that poor child was one of the most jaded things I've seen in my life.
