The Chicago Tribune article backs us what people are saying...if you still chose not be believe because you weren't physically there that's of course your right but is completely laughable.

Quote from the article:

"In addition to mistakes by campus security, Marquette administrators have acknowledged that the athletic department reacted inappropriately to the initial accusation.

The school has publicly criticized an Oct. 31 meeting between coaches and athletes, shortly after the first woman made her allegations. Prosecutors said they had no evidence that coaches intentionally interfered with the investigation but said the gathering offered an opportunity for the athletes to compare stories before detectives had a chance to question them independently.

One athlete sent a text message to the woman during the meeting, asking if she had made a report to security, authorities have said. Another called her with similar questions, according to the police report.

Mike Broeker, acting athletic director, told the Tribune that coaches met with players after campus security notified the athletic department of the woman's report. Calling it a "severe error in judgment," he said the department is changing how it responds when athletes are in trouble."

Thanks for the quote from the Tribune article. I'm particularly interested in 2 of the cites:

"Prosecutors said they had no evidence that coaches intentionally interfered with the investigation.........." and

"Mike Broeker...... .coaches met with players........called it 'a severe error in judgment.........".

So let me summarize. Veteran Milwaukee County Felony prosecutors said the coaches' actions DID NOT impede their investigation. And Broeker thinks ( long after the fact, with the benefit of hindsight), that Buzz used bad judgment.

Now, how you get from that to "Buzz is a POS" and " Buzz is a scumbag douche", I don't know. If I'm ever charged with a crime, try to get yourself struck from my jury-----please.

Oy.

I never claimed he interfered with a police investigation, which would be a criminal matter. I claimed he improperly interfered with Marquette's Title IX investigation, which would usually be an automatic dismissal from the University - for cause.

You and others seem quite confident about all the things Buzz DID regarding this incident. I'm merely pointing out, for those not as intelligent and discerning as you, some things he DIDN'T do.

As far as interfering with Marquette's Title IX investigation, and any automatic dismissal from the University, MU's lawyers must have advised them that that course, too, was unsustainable, because not only was he not immediately dismissed for cause------nor for any other reason--------but he was retained as the head coach, molding young men.

Marquette was capable of F-ing up ( and they did, royally) the Title IX investigation all by itself, without ant help from Brent Williams.

My man.  It's literally spelled out in the Chicago Tribune article for you.

You can claim all Brent Williams did was get his guys together and told them to lawyer up before talking to anyone.  But you're just closing your eyes when more information is publicly available for anyone to see.  You keep using this line of "I wasn't there and neither were you."  Well, people from within Marquette's own athletic department told a major news publication it happened.  We didn't need to be there.  They texted and called the victim at this meeting.  Seems this was above and beyond, "Hey guys.  I'm a father figure to you.  I need to tell you to lawyer up before you speak up, as I truly care about you."

But thanks for stopping by, Brent.

I don’t know what’s funnier. Your continued ignorance or your “molding young men” line.

I’ll call your BS. I never met BW, so can’t comment on him good or bad…but your story here is BS.

Lol okay. I don’t know why I would make that story up. Also, Buzz would dip during TV interviews… is it really that far fetched?

Can we make this thread stop already?   Can we be like Buzz and pay somebody to flush it?

No one is forcing you to look at it. And the answer to both of your questions is no. Instead of stopping "this thread", stop looking at it.

No idea about the Va Tech or TAMU sides, but my guess is they cared more about the end result winning than how they get there.
Previous actions by TAMU's football coach make Buzz look like a saint. Jimbo left FSU much in the way Buzz left Marquette. FSU admin using their best Willy Wonka voice "No, don't, stop".

I doubt she's an expert on Ebonics, either.
