    Cliffs:

    A lot of sexual assault allegations have come out against an MSU doctor that they used for athletics...he was also a primary doctor for USA Gymnastics. Multiple parties are being sued because its coming out that parents and victims had told people for at least a decade about what this doctor had done and nobody did anything to him.....sounds a little familiar. MSU suspended their longtime women's gymnastics coach this week, because it now appears she for some reason supported the doctor.

    I'm sure our Spartans posters could provide more and better info. Story is looking real bad and would be a huge story if it was a bigger sport.

    EAST LANSING — Former MSU women's gymnastics coach Kathie Klages told the mother of a current gymnast in December that the child pornography the FBI said it found on Larry Nassar's computers and hard drives may have been planted, an attorney confirmed Wednesday.

    The allegation — the third made specifically against Klages — was first made in a court document filed Jan. 27 seeking to add the athlete to the federal lawsuit against Michigan State University, Nassar, USA Gymnastics and Twistars gymnastics club in Dimondale.

    Those documents, filed by attorney Jamie White, didn't identify Klages, but said it was "a member of MSU’s coaching staff."


    White, the attorney for the gymnast who says Nassar sexually assaulted her during medical appointments, confirmed on Tuesday that it was Klages who spoke to his client's mother.

    He also confirmed that it was Klages who told his client's mother that "Nassar’s digital penetrations of (the athlete's) vagina was a proven medical treatment."

    I just watched the episode of Workaholics where Chris Delia plays a predator and they try to get him to go after gymnasts instead.

    The gymnastics stuff is gunna be horrible by the time it's all said and done, football at least seems like they're being proactive about it. Severity of the football stuff will depend on the actual actions(and guilt) and what the assistants involvement actually was. If they're guilty and all expelled, as they should be if they're guilty, I'm not sure what else the public can expect beyond the players being suspended within a couple of days or so of the incident and expelled upon completion of the investigation. What the staff member did is where the real problem lies for the university. If he did anything other than report it immediately, he should be gone.

    No idea, if I had to guess, probably not. The allegations go back to the 90's, obviously before his tenure, but lawsuits allege that his office was notified as recently as 2014, if true, he's probably gone.

    Hollis has been very good for MSU and good for the B1G, but it's hard to see him surviving this shitstorm.

    Hell, we fired our AD for handling a concussion poorly and being a huge douche.

    Mason — A woman became the first to publicly testify in court against a former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics doctor who is under investigation for sexually abusing a growing chorus of young girls over two decades.

    The 25-year-old woman said she was six years old when Dr. Larry Nassar, 53, exposed himself to her and began a seven-year odyssey of escalating sexual abuse.

    “I was confused,” the woman said. “I didn’t know what to think of it. I had no reason to challenge it. So I just let it be what it was.”

    The woman testified Friday during a preliminary examination for Nassar in 55th District Court. Judge Donald L. Allen Jr. bound Nassar over for trial on three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a person younger than 13, which is punishable by up to life in prison. He has pleaded not guilty. No trial date was set.

    The woman said the incidents began in 1998 during frequent family visits to Nassar’s home in Holt.

    At the time, she said, Nassar’s assaults came after he found her during games of hide and seek or while watching television in the basement of his home. The assaults occurred while her older brother also played in the basement. They continued until she was 12, she said.


    After Nassar exposed himself to her, he then began masturbating with lotion in front of her, the woman testified. On another occasion, he threw a blanket over her on a couch in the basement and began massaging her feet up against his penis. Then, the woman testified, he began inserting his finger into her vagina underneath the blanket

    Attorney General Bill Schuette, who filed the felony sexual assault charges against Nassar in November, called them “the tip of the iceberg.” Nassar also was indicted in December on federal child pornography charges and destruction. An FBI agent said at least 37,000 images and videos were discovered.

    Since then, MSU has been investigating more than 60 complaints, and more than three dozen women have filed suit against Nassar, accusing him of abusing females ranging in age from 9 to more than 30 from 1994 to 2016. The women accused Nassar of assaulting them under the guise of treatment that involved using his fingers to penetrate their genitalia.

    MSU reassigned Nassar from clinical and patient duties as of Aug. 30, a day after a complaint from one of the gymnasts was made to authorities. He was fired Sept. 20.

    Nassar had been under intense scrutiny since September when two gymnasts, including a member of the 2000 U.S. women’s Olympic team, said they were sexually abused by him when they were teens. He has denied it.

    The incidents happened on MSU’s East Lansing campus, at a gymnastics facility in Dimondale near Lansing and at USA Gymnastics events, according to the lawsuits. He was a longtime team doctor for USA Gymnastics, which is the sport’s national governing body.

    USA Gymnastics said it fired Nassar and notified law enforcement in summer 2015 shortly after receiving a complaint about him.

    But the accusations weren’t limited to gymnasts, according to the lawsuits. Other alleged victims played softball, basketball, soccer, swimming, figure skating, field hockey and track and field.

    Michigan State University’s head gymnastics coach, Kathie Klages, retired Tuesday, the same day a woman came forward to accuse her of ignoring complaints of sexual abuse by Nassar. Two others have done the same. Klages has not been charged.

    First I really dove into the details of this story but this is essentially the Sandusky case all over again. This is enabling and harboring a predator. I mean 12 cases of abuse following the criminal complaint in 2014 where MSU didn’t even care to try and enforce University dictated guidelines for him to stop it from happening. I’m not sure how there aren’t more heads rolling for this.

    I think MSU has benefitted by having a juicer target in the US Gymnastics Assoc in front of them. But there's a lot of stink here and some of it has got to stick at some point.

    Unfortunately, at this point, the board has decided to publicly back Louanna K Simon and her undocumented sham investigation exonerating the University and its employees. As much as it burns me up, it looks more likely she quietly retires rather than being held accountable for this in any way.

    If I wasn't a PSU fan, I would say that MSU fans should denounce their fandom and their degree since their university failed this badly to protect numerous young girls. That's just a disgusting university of disgusting people and this proves that. At least we fired the people involved. They are giving them raises. Blow that campus up.

    Yes. She declined and will use that money to fund scholarships in a vain attempt to swing PR her way.

    If you feel remotely vindicated as a result of this, you are a truly sick individual. I'm going to avoid a pissing match comparing the two situations as I don't think that does anything but shift attention away from the victims in some vile argument about which pile of shit stinks less.



    For the record, my position on this issue has been clear for a while. I have been very vocal in my belief that Louanna needs to be fired for months, obviously there are individuals within the athletic department who need to be held accountable as well (though it is unclear who and how far reaching the cover up was due to the lack of transparency). I have halted all general fund contributions and am weighing what to do with season tickets and Spartan fund (athletic) contributions all of which I earmark for football.
