Red Wedding each and everyone of those stooges for their complete and utter failure.  At this point, I think MSU as an institution has acted more disgracefully than Penn State, which is a charge I don't make lightly.  They've failed the survivors and50,000 other students who've shown more integrity this week than the BoTrustees and Simon have since 2014.

It's one thing to protect the brand of Michigan State, which - to be fair - is literally their job.  It's simultaneously evil and idiotic to think that protecting said brand equates to sitting on allegations of a molester on the payroll and stonewalling the victims' pleas for action. 

Fire them all into a landfill and pick almost literally anyone else to run the place.

michigan state's response to all of this has been insane. usually i'd say the cover up is worse than the crime, but this crime is so bad it's hard to argue that one. but they certainly aren't doing themselves any favors with this. just awful, awful approach to this terrible situation.

Looks like they are doubling down on everything with little chance of doing the right thing. I remember when these threads started and some members were referring to MSU as the Fighting Larry Nassar’s, in all honesty I thought it was childish at best and fairly inappropriate given the scope of the abuse. With that said, the responses of support from BoT, the CYA statements from Simon, plus weird Izzo commentary...they really don’t care about doing the right thing. They just want it to go away while keeping their good name at any cost. Maybe the Fighting Larry Nassar’s is more appropriate than I originally thought. I hope those girls take down each and every one of the enablers at MSU and beyond.

Between the Nassar scandal and being a down-ballot Republican in the 2018 midterms, Breslin would rather step aside for this cycle than face defeat. Don't be surprised if you see him running again 2 or 4 years from now.

Mitch Lyons needs to get voted out immediately. Interested to see if the Republicans  nominate him even if he wants to run. He was recently charged with misdemeanor assault and was an embarrasment during the football sexual assault investigation.

Wait so what is his relation to the Breslin Center? Is it named after him or a family member of his? I'm not well versed in the upper echelons of MSU's board/donors/etc.

It is the one of the biggest intercollegiate athletics scandal in history. In our state. There were probably similar numbers when the Sandusky/PSU story broke. All of the threads are about the MSU Nassar scandal. None of them are about STAEE or D'Antonio.

This has less to do with rivalry and more to do with the enormity of this scandal right in our backyard.

I just want to know how Lyons can still BE on the board considering he outed Robertson as the Whistleblower AND had a warrant out for his arrest. Like how the shit do you not remove someone from an elected position for that? It's also hilarious that Perles, who now in his old age is a few fries short of a combo meal, remains on the BoT too.

This is how you end up with scandals like this and incompetent responses to them. When your Board of Trustees include goons like Lyons, Perles, & Ferguson who care more about the football program than the educational mission of the university, it was only a matter of time.

The selection process for trustees for state universities in the state of Michigan needs to be overhauled. The two political parties have control over what candidates make it to the ballot, and the students, alumni, and faculty of the university have little say in the process leaving it to the mercy of statewide ballot where most voters don't care and know little to nothing about the candidates. The same goes for the Michigan Supreme Court selection process. Some things should not be on a statewide ballot.
