It looks like Nassar was a symptom of the overall culture at MSU.

And I do believe that some people are going to regret comments made recently like this one for instance

Quote:
As national media outlets draw parallels between the scandals surrounding molestation by Jerry Sandusky at Penn State and Larry Nassar at Michigan State and other gymnastics programs, one Michigan State trustee is speaking out on why he says the NCAA won’t investigate Nassar: “This is not Penn State.”

Michigan State trustee Joel Ferguson, who serves as the vice chairman of the Board of Trustees, spoke as a guest Monday on radio program “Staudt on Sports.” When he was asked if he feared the NCAA would get involved somehow, Ferguson laughed out loud as if the notion was absurd. “For what?”

“They [at Penn State]were dealing with their football program,” Ferguson said. “…[The NCAA is] smart enough to know they’re not competent to walk in here on this.”

Yep. It's not. It actually has the possibility to be much worse according to the link in the OP.

They will both be out. They will be forced out because of increasing political pressure. I'll put 20 GG on the line for this prediction!

P.S. I'm a Penn State alum...I know how these things go...

P.P.S. And to be clear, the Penn State admins deserved everything they got and more, and the university deserved to pay those fines and settlements, and more.
