Urban Meyer. Larry Nassar. Chris Bustamante. C.L. Max Nikias. Art Briles. The list goes on. Some of these names might sound familiar, some maybe do not. Due to the popularity and appeal of college sports, sports-related scandals are usually the ones making the headlines. For example, in May 2016, Art Briles was dismissed as head football coach of Baylor University for mishandling sexual assault allegations against his student-athletes. On Jan. 24, Larry Nassar was convicted and sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison for molesting more than 150 women and girls, many of whom had spoken out about the abuse, yet were ignored by major organizations such as USA Gymnastics, Michigan State University and the US Olympic Committee. In the latest scandal, Ohio State University’s head football coach, Urban Meyer, was suspended for three games after it came out that he knew of 2009 and 2015 incidents involving former wide receiver coach Zach Smith’s alleged domestic abuse of his then wife, and other indiscretions, and did nothing.
