The Most Disappointing Player on Every NFL Roster, BleacherReport, If you like your wide receivers with top-end physical talent, you may love what you see in Cleveland Browns wideout Corey Coleman, who has it in spades.

Sexual Assault Scandal

Baylor settles with former student who accused football players of gang rape, WacoTrib, Baylor University on Friday settled a Title IX lawsuit filed by a former volleyball player who alleged four to eight football players drugged and gang raped her in 2012.

Suit that alleged former BU volleyball player was gang-raped settled, KWTX, A lawsuit in which a former Baylor volleyball player alleged she was gang-raped by at least four and possibly as many as eight football players in 2012 has been settled.

More than 60 subpoenas have been delivered within a Baylor Title IX lawsuit, WacoTrib, Lawyers representing 10 alleged sexual assault victims suing Baylor University have subpoenaed more than 60 people affiliated with the school at some point, adding fuel to a Title IX lawsuit.

“If someone wants to say that this is extreme, they’re forgetting what the university did and has admitted doing,” Waco attorney Jim Dunnam,said. “They’re just trying to cover up, the individuals responsible, because there’s been no personal responsibility whatsoever. The only people supposedly held accountable were paid up to $15 million (such as Briles). That’s extreme. That’s just my response to that. It ought to offend anyone, whether they have a connection with Baylor at all, that we have an institution with decades of suppressing rape at their university.”

War of words between Baylor, Jane Doe attorneys intensifies, KWTX, Attorneys in a sexual assault lawsuit against Baylor are seeking access to new documents, claiming the university hired a PR firm to shape “a new message obscuring university-wide Title IX failures and the lack of meaningful real reform,” but Baylor calls the claim “factually baseless and borderline ludicrous.”
