The Daily Northwestern: Former NU football player details hazing after coach suspension

 

 

1. I don't think Pat Fitzgerald ultimately survives this with his job, nor should he.

 

2. Kudos to the Northwestern student paper for shining a light on something their school's "leaders" attempted to make look relatively benign.

NEW: Northwestern President Michael Schill writes about Pat Fitzgerald's suspension, "I focused too much on what the report concluded he didn't know and not enough on what he should've known," in an email. Added he would assess with NU leadership to decide the next steps.


He’s toast.

The Daily Northwestern: Former NU players describe racist environment in football program

https://dailynorthwe...otball-program/

 

In addition to hazing which included sexual assault, you can add racism to the growing list of allegations against Pat Fitzgerald and Northwestern's football program.

Anyone wanna guess what some of the discussion topics at the upcoming Big Ten Football Media Days event will be? Anyone?

NU's announcement of Pat Fitzgerald's firing.

 

So now the obvious question is: What changed between Friday, when he was given a two week unpaid suspension, and today? Is it nothing more than the public learning some of the details via the student paper? I think someone ought to have to answer for that.

Based on the university president’s statement, it doesn’t seem like he was presented with any new information. He just changed his mind, presumably after seeing the public outrage. So yeah, not great.

This whole thing is very reminiscent of 2018 Maryland.

Fitzgerald released a statement to ESPN, essentially asking the same question as everyone else (though no doubt from a very different point of view) as to why he was given a two-week summer suspension on Friday, then fired three days later based on the exact same information. And, of course, he's lawyered up.

Jim Harbaugh facing a four-game suspension for recruiting violations. Made impermissible contact during dead periods, and had a defensive analyst coaching on the field.

As usual, he’s scheduled a slate full of cupcakes in the non-conference. He’d miss games against East Carolina, Bowling Green, UNLV, and Rutgers.

Crazy story that’s been breaking today regarding Iowa State starting QB Hunter Dekkers. He apparently placed a lot of bets via Draft Kings on numerous ISU sports, including at least one Cyclones football game. Where it really gets gross is his own parents apparently attempted to help him conceal his identity. Aside from his college career probably being over, have to think he could be facing criminal charges.

People that bet the ISU over are probably pretty bitter right now.  No chance books refund those bets.

From what I understand he didn’t play in any of the games he bet on. But he for sure had insider info he could use to his advantage. Where he’s probably really in hot water is he apparently tried to interfere with the probe looking into his bets, so would think he might face obstruction charges. And the part about his parents trying to help hide his identity is pathetic. People, the online sports books know exactly who you are. Gambling is too heavily regulated for them not to invest a lot of resources into that sort of thing.

I meant for this upcoming season.  Not sure what ISU's win total was heading into this year, probably pretty low, but it's gotta be either off the board or significantly less now that their starting QB is likely donezo.

Ah, gotcha. Yeah, the books don’t care. No different than if he got injured.

Hmmm, on DK their win total is 5?  The under is juiced to -130

 

Am I missing something?  I know the Big 12 isn't great outside of the top two -- but TCU and Baylor should be ok also

 

5 seems like a lot.

Out of conference they play Northern Iowa, Iowa, Ohio, and BYU

 

8 conference games are:  OSU, at Oklahoma, TCU, at Cincy, at Baylor, Kansas, Texas, at K State

 

I am taking under 5 there.
