Baylors assistant coaches released a statement via Twitter on Friday night, in which they disputed a Board of Regents members claims that former coach Art Briles was aware of an alleged gang rape involving former Bears players and didnt report it to proper authorities.During a meeting with the Dallas Morning News editorial board on Thursday, Baylor regent David Harper said he knew of at least one instance when Briles was told of an allegation of gang rape and didnt report it to proper authorities.He was made aware of one of the allegations of a gang rape, Harper told the Morning News. At least one of them. I cant tell you if he knew or didnt know about the others.On Friday night, Baylors assistant coaches, including Briles son Kendal and son-in-law Jeff Lebby, and several staff members disputed Harpers claims in a statement on Twitter. In the statement, the assistant coaches claimed the alleged victim reported [the incident] to her head sport coach and the coach reported to his superior (former athletic director Ian McCaw).Also on Friday, Bears wide receiver Chris Platt indicated on Twitter that the Bears were wearing black uniforms for Saturdays game against TCU to protest Briles firing, though on Saturday he denied that was the reason.?According to the assistant football coaches statement, McCaw instructed the head coach to report the incident to Baylors office of judicial affairs, which the coach did. The assistant coaches claimed Briles wasnt made aware of the incident involving football players and the alleged victim until nine months after the alleged incident occurred.According to the statement, the alleged victims coach informed Briles that he reported the incident to McCaw and judicial affairs. The statement said, Briles told [the victims coach] to report it to the police and prosecute the players if there was any wrongdoing.The Baylor assistant coaches claimed in the statement that the victims coach later said, I think Coach Briles handled the matter honorably and with the serious attention it deserved. The statement claims that the womans coach also stated that Briles followed up and was informed that the alleged victim did not want to report the incident to police.The assistant coaches also claimed that Briles never had contact with the woman.In an open letter to students, faculty and alumni earlier this week, Baylor interim president David E. Garland said there were a total of 17 reported allegations of sexual assault or domestic violence allegedly committed by 19 football players since 2011. In 2012, there were four allegations of gang rapes involving Baylor football players, according to Garland.Briles, who guided the Bears to a 65-37 record and at least a share of two Big 12 titles from 2008 to 2015, was fired May 26 after an investigation by Philadelphia law firm Pepper Hamilton found widespread problems with the way Baylor responded to allegations of sexual assault by students, including several football players. University president Kenneth Starr also was demoted and then fired, and McCaw was suspended and then resigned.Baylor regent Cary Gray told the Dallas Morning News on Thursday that Briles was fired because he delegated down discipline and he operated a system where he was the last to know when he needed to be the first to know.Former Baylor assistant athletic director Tom Hill told Outside the Lines in September that he was interrogated by Pepper Hamilton attorneys about an incident involving a former Baylor volleyball player. They asked me if I was aware of a rape. They asked me if I knew of a 6-foot-2-inch volleyball player, he said.Hill, who was fired in late May after the Pepper Hamilton findings were released by the university, said he told the attorneys that former volleyball coach Jim Barnes had stopped by his office and told him there had been a sexual encounter between a football player and a volleyball player. Hill said Barnes told him that it had already been reported to McCaw.[Barnes] indicated that he had had conversations with Briles prior to seeing me, Hill said. And he stopped by my office only to give me a pass-by FYI that he was discussing this issue with them. That was it. The issue was a potential sexual incident with a football player and a volleyball player.Hill said he never knew the name of the football player or the volleyball player, and he never knew specifically that it was a rape. Really, he didnt give me a lot of details, Hill said, adding that Barnes didnt tell him it was rape -- only that it was a sexual encounter.Hill said he called McCaw shortly after Barnes stopped by his office, but Hill said he did not learn any more details about the incident from that conversation.A reported gang rape by Baylor football players in 2011 shows up in an amended Title IX lawsuit filed by attorneys for Jasmin Hernandez. Hernandez was sexually assaulted by former football player Tevin Elliott and says in the lawsuit that Baylor officials knew of a culture of inappropriate sexual conduct by its football players long before her incident.In reference to the 2011 alleged gang rape, the complaint states that Baylor had actual knowledge of Jane Roe 4s gang rape but failed to respond promptly and equitably. As a result of Baylors inequitable response, Jane Roe 4 transferred out of Baylor to another university.It does not name the women or the football players allegedly involved in the incident, but sources have told Outside the Lines that the incident involving the volleyball player is possibly related.Hill said he was asked to come to a meeting on May 26 to answer some follow-up questions regarding the Pepper Hamilton report, and when he arrived, he was told that he was being terminated effective immediately based on the findings of the Pepper Hamilton investigation. He said Baylor officials would not tell him any more information.Its the second time Baylor assistant coaches and staff members have made an orchestrated effort to support Briles on Twitter. In early October, after acting coach Jim Grobe disputed the universitys account about the circumstances surrounding former Bears player Jeremy Faulks dismissal from the school, eight assistant coaches and several staff members nearly simultaneously tweeted a link to a story containing Grobes comments, along with the hashtag #TRUTHDONTLIE.Baylor executive associate athletics director Nick Joos told ESPN at the time that the university addressed the issue of the Baylor coaches tweeting about the case.Weve handled that internally and were not going to comment any further on it, Joos said. Weve handled that here tonight. Cheap Phillies Jerseys China .

OTTAWA -- Two teams that should be in foul moods will take their frustrations out on each other Saturday night at Canadian Tire Centre.The Ottawa Senators (10-6-1) suffered their worst defeat of the season when they fell 5-1 to the Nashville Predators on home ice Thursday. Four hours away on the same night, the Florida Panthers (8-8-1) were also taking their worst beating when they lost 6-1 to the Toronto Maple Leafs.We didnt compete hard enough and Toronto put it to us pretty good, said coach Gerard Gallant after the third stop in a four-game road trip for the Panthers. There was nothing good about our game tonight. A lot of guys didnt play good hockey at all. ... There was no compete, not battle level.The Panthers, who got their only goal from defenseman Aaron Ekblad, used backup goalie James Reimer against his former team. Expected to get the call in Ottawa will be Roberto Luongo, who has a 14-14-1 career record versus the Senators.Down the ice from him in the Senators net will be Craig Anderson, who returned to the team Friday after taking a one-day leave to be with his wife Nicholle as she battles cancer.Anderson is off to an 8-3-1 start with a goals-against average (2.12) and save percentage (.934) that ranks among the league leaders.Andys been an incredible inspiration to all of us the way hes been able to deal with what Nicholle is going through, said assistant captaiin Dion Phaneuf.dddddddddddd Theres no words to describe what hes done for our team.

Winger Mike Hoffman didnt play Thursday because of a lower body injury and is day-to-day, while winger Chris Neil missed Fridays practice with an unspecified issue and his status is also up in the air.Its tough, said coach Guy Boucher. You look at your lineup and you plug some holes, but in reality you cant ask some guys to be a top six forward when youre a fourth liner. Weve got to figure out a way to use the players on the roster so that we put guys at least in the chairs that they can manage so we have the best look possible.The two teams split the season series last year, 2-2-1.
