You will be shocked to learn that among the institutions that failed during the MSU scandal was the NCAA:
Though the NCAA has announced its intention to open an investigation into Michigan State’s athletic department, it remains unclear what exactly the purview of the investigation would be.
And, more importantly, why it’s taken so long to get involved.
NCAA president Mark Emmert was specifically alerted in November 2010 — six months after he was hired as the organization’s president — to 37 reports involving Michigan State athletes sexually assaulting women.
Conveniently, Lou Anna Simon was on the Board of Governors at the time.
To be Scrupulously Fair, this wasn’t a real scandal, like a unpaid player getting ten bucks for his autograph or something.
