    Honestly this is about the best case scenario for MSU given everything that’s happened the last week. Not bad.

    Can I get a summary of what's going on at MSU that's football related? Just the alleged violations last week or are they involved in the rape stuff as well?

    I’ll try to make this brief;

    There was the Larry Nassar stuff that was completely unrelated to football (or basketball).

    Around the same time that all the Nassar stuff came out, MSU football had 3 freshman players sexually assault a student. MSU’s recruiting coordinator, Curtis Blackwell was one of the first to find out what happened and did not immediately report it. Dantonio eventually learned what happened and reported it through proper channels (third party investigation confirmed all of that). In an attempt to save as much face as possible, MSU put Blackwell on paid leave, in which a few months later his contract expired and they never renewed it.

    Since that, Blackwell has not been able to get a job, so he is suing the University and Dantonio for wrongful termination. As part of the suit, they have deposed Dantonio, Mark Hollis (former AD) and several others. Blackwell’s attorney continues to leak information and make more and more claims directly to the media (specifically the Detroit News), in a deliberate attempt to force MSU to settle. This has been going on for 9ish months now and the latest claim is recruiting violations from Dantonio (which consisted of minor level 2 violations that all the major schools consistently self report).

    As a side note, a lot of MSU performance / recruiting has gone downhill because Blackwell is a prominent figure in Detroit high school football, so MSU has basically been shut out of Detroit for several years now.

    hoebekec can give a summary.

    Basically, the team sucks and needed new direction/energy.

    The former recruiting director from Detroit was either fired or didn’t have his contract renewed because he was involved in covering up a sexual assault involving a couple of players 3 years ago, so now he’s flinging shit at the university trying to force them to settle for millions of dollars when his salary was only like 120k. Our “best” recruiting class in 2016 crashed and burned, including 3-4 rapists, and we have yet to recover.

    The biggest one yes related to gymnastics, he was also the US gymnast coach. But Donnie Corley, Josh King and another player as well as Auston Robertson all had issues.

    Robertson is the one with the biggest black eye because he had issues in high school and we still let him in.

    There were also a couple different football-related rape allegations that led to convictions/pleas, and a couple of basketball-related rape allegations that were shoved under the carpet.

    This is a fine outcome for Michigan State. Tucker should do a better job recruiting and will probably run an offense that prioritizes scoring over overthrowing covered receivers.
