Liberty Hired Baylor's Disgraced AD, But Their Biggest Mistake Was Referencing Baylor's Success
Best (still not good) Answer: "You look at what Ian McCaw has been able to do throughout his career, it fits perfectly with where we see our sports programs going. It's an exciting time for us."
Bad Answer: "You look at what the university that created a culture that enabled and excused repeated sexual assault in order to win collegiate sporting events was able to do, and the person responsible for condoning those morally corrupt priorities fits perfectly with where we see ourselves headed. This is an exciting time for us."
Jesus Christ, how are people in authoritative positions this stupid? I understand Liberty's decision to hire an ethically vacant asshole that transformed a private school in the middle of "the bed of my truck is my gun rack", Texas into a national multi-sport contender by ignoring a comical amount of crimes committed by his players. College sports is about money and winning makes more of it. Regardless of the crooked nature of his career, Ian McCaw has proven he can turn around a largely irrelevant program and that is exactly what Liberty happens to be at the moment.
Personally? I wouldn't hire the cocksucker, but I'm also not on the outside looking in at a bottomless pool filled with billions of dollars that I'm only a couple of successful seasons away from being granted access to. If Liberty felt they needed to bring someone on board that will have all the time in the world to cover up 5-star felonies because he hasn't even taken a second to schedule a dental visit since 1992 then that's their prerogative. However, what they definitively shouldn't have done is referenced the institution whose reputation he just got done soiling for the foreseeable future. The amount of people that know about the horrific transgressions of Baylor puts to shame the number of people that know the name of the villainous looking motherfucker that allowed them to take place. Willingly associating the two was basically the equivalent of buying a t-shirt that supports the disgraced coach of a football team that turned their campus into some 3rd world wasteland where women have more vaginas than rights.
