Bravery.

This is really brave.

I have read with dismay over the past few weeks the comments following news articles about monster sex abuser and U of M Dr. Robert Anderson, defending the demi-god Coach Bo, who sent his athletes to this man for years. Sorry to be a buzzkill to your tailgating in Ann Arbor, but it’s pretty goddamn obvious Bo Schembechler not only knew about Dr. Anderson, he failed to protect his own son. So to you big defenders of the Blue and Gold and all things U of M football who refuse to see what is right under your noses: Wake up and TOUGHEN UP.

Can we finally get to the point where kids and college athletes are believed the first time when they come forward? Now every inquiry should involved the question who knew what, when. The same question should be asked in this OCCK case. Who knew what, when? Complicit enablers, who look the other way, are costing these universities and other “fine” institutions a lot of money. Of course that is always the only way to get the message through to these people. Let’s hope that with the increase in insurance premiums to these spineless institutions, some serious substantive changes to “business as usual” happen quickly. Who knew what, when. Here it is at least as early as 1969. Go (fuck yourself) Blue.

    Coach Bo’s son said he was only ten years old when Anderson molested him. For those of you in Metro Detroit, WWJ AM 950 radio is hosting the press conference today.

    We’re getting there finally, but sadly too many victim’s and families have suffered and paid the price along the way!

    I remember hearing about one of Bo’s sons dying under unusual circumstances some years ago.

    Pretty devastating to hear this about someone I considered one of my heroes. I remember thinking Bo could teach Paterno about integrity wherever they are now. I guess I was wrong. I also knew Matt from WMU. We lived on the same dorm floor freshman year.

    Your expressions of disgust are truly shared. And sometimes they are hilarious, like a well placed touche. Don’t forget, those who have passed had a great sense of humor.
