milton report details need to be done, and some of them are pretty big projects. But saying it and doing it are two different things.How long the conference waits depends on the patience of the board

STILLWATER, Okla. Kd Shoes Clearance . -- After a dominating victory last week over Southeastern Louisiana, No. 22 Oklahoma State knows it will face a much more difficult test on Saturday against Central Michigan.The Cowboys also faced the Chippewas last season, and rallied for a 24-13 victory on the road. Coach Mike Gundy acknowledged that experience will help get the point across to his players that this is an opponent they cannot afford to overlook.I dont think theres any question that we have respect for that league, theyre notorious for upsets, Gundy said. Us playing them last year and realizing that theyve got good players, the world that they live in is pretty competitive. It helps out with preparation during the week.Central Michigan (1-0), from the Mid-American Conference, boasts an NFL quarterback prospect in senior Cooper Rush and a stingy defense that returned eight starters from the unit that ranked 16th in the nation last year in total defense.Coach Mike Bonamego, whose squad opened with a 49-3 win over FCS school Presbyterian, believes his group has prepared the right way and will be ready.Your preparation, when you commit yourself to the process, isnt going to be any different if youre playing Presbyterian or Oklahoma State, Bonamego said. If you dont prepare well, you cant expect to play well, bottom line. Its going to be a big challenge for us. I dont see any dropoff from Oklahoma State from last year to this year. I actually think in a lot of ways, they are better.Some things to watch for on Saturday:NO OFFENSE: After scoring two non-offensive touchdowns last week (one by Madre Harper on a fumble recovery just 1:45 into the contest following a punt, and another on a fumble return by cornerback Ramon Richards), Oklahoma State leads the nation with 39 such scores since 2010. The Cowboys (1-0) forced four turnovers to run their total to 179 since 2010, ranking third over that timeframe, behind just Houston and Oregon.RUSH HOUR: Rush is highly regarded, by NFL scouts and Gundy. After a strong 2015 in which he completed 66.3 percent of his passes and ranked 14th in the nation with 3,848 yards, with 25 touchdowns and just 11 interceptions, Rush threw for 237 yards and one touchdown on 16-of-26 passing last week, along with two interceptions. Ive always been a big fan of the quarterback, Gundy said. Hes a potential NFL player. When you have a quarterback of that caliber, you certainly have the opportunity to score some points.SPREAD THE BALL AROUND: Oklahoma State is still sorting through its depth chart at running back, with four different backs carrying the ball at least four times in its season opener, and none more than six times. Sophomore Jeff Carr led the group with 42 yards and a touchdown on six carries, while freshman Justice Hill gained 33 on six rushes. And thats not counting the Cowboys most experienced ball carrier, senior Rennie Childs, who rushed three times for 21 yards. Offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich credited running backs coach Marcus Arroyo for managing the group. Its not easy sharing all that playing time, Yurcich said. And those guys all want to be the guy, so for them to have the attitudes that they have, and unselfishness, I think you have to give coach Arroyo a lot of credit for his leadership and management of that room.SPREAD IT, PART 2: Central Michigan also employed a running back-by-committee approach in its opener, although Devon Spalding was the clear leader of the group, gaining 135 yards and one touchdown on 15 carries. Freshman Jonathan Ward rushed seven times for 79 yards, including a 45-yard touchdown, and Jahray Hayes ran for 43 yards and three scores on nine rushes. All three of the backs ran very well, Bonamego said. I think our offensive line executed at a high level. They opened up some nice lanes for the runners.O-LINE EXPERIENCE: Oklahoma State returned all five of its starters from last seasons offensive line, a group that had combined for 106 career starts, the highest total in the Big 12. Still, one of the incumbents, Jesse Robinson, was beaten out for a starting role by All-American junior college transfer Larry Williams, who has taken over at right guard. Air Max 720 Outlet . Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night. Kobe Bryant Shoes Clearance . Fernandez, coached in Toronto by former two-time Olympic silver medallist Brian Orser, scored 267.11 points and is the first champion to successfully defend since Russias Evgeny Plushenko in 2005 and 2006. . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. DALLAS -- Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said Baylor officials are scheduled to meet with the leagues board of directors Tuesday to present their plans to address the sexual assault scandal that rocked the university this summer.Bowlsby, speaking Monday at the opening of Big 12 media days, said Baylor officials have declined to release the full Pepper Hamilton report to the conference. He said Big 12 officials have had access to only a summary of the report and findings of fact that Baylor officials released to media and the public in late May.Our board has asked for a full accounting from Baylor University relative to the sexual assaults and their universitys response to that situation, Bowlsby said. I think its fair to say that theyre deeply concerned about the associational elements of this. ... From a purely athletic standpoint, we also have to be satisfied that there havent been Big 12 rules broken and there havent been NCAA rules violated. That is the essence of our process, and its very early in the process right now.On June 22, the Big 12 issued a public statement demanding specifics of Baylors sexual assault investigations, including the full Pepper Hamilton report, and made a point of noting that this was the second time the conference had to ask. The first request was a letter to then-president Kenneth Starr on May 24, two days before the university publicly released the law firms report summary and announced the fates of Starr, athletic director Ian McCaw and football coach Art Briles.This time, Baylor responded. There was an in-person meeting June 23 between Bowlsby and Baylor officials, including interim president David Garland and board of regents chairman Ronald Murff. They gave Bowlsby no documents, no details of the investigation, none of the names involved in the alleged assaults and none of the material the conference originally requested, but they did give him an explanation.I thought all of them were very forthright, Bowlsby told ESPN last week. They are in the middle of ... a number of potential civil actions, and on the advice of counsel, they are not sharing everything they have. At least not right now.Garland told ESPN last week that Baylor officials met with NCAA enforcement staff earlier this summer to address what was included in the Pepper Hamilton report. He said the university hasnt been contacted by the NCAA since the initial meeting.Garland, Murff and Baylor regent David Harper are scheduled to address the Big 12 board of directors Tuesday, according to Bowlsby.Bowlsby said the Big 12 board of directors executive committee -- Oklahoma president David Boren, Texas president Gregory Fenves and Kansas chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little -- decided to go public with the news that they were demanding information from Baylor and that the school wasnt complying.I think that there are certainly those among our board that have felt that the image of the Big 12 and the other members of the Big 12 have been sullied as a result of this incident, Bowlsby said. Its gotten a lot of publicity, obviously, so thats the reason the board took the steps they took.Bowlsby said the Big 12s goal is to erase sexual assault at its institutions.We are very committed as a group of 10 schools to eradicating sexual assault on our campuses, he said. It almost goes without saying that when you combine alcohol and drugs and raging hormones and thhe experiences of 18-22 years old, its probably unrealistic to think that these kinds of things are never going to happen. Cheap Nike Shoes From China. But we certainly want to make sure that from the center we do everything we can to ensure that they are minimized, if not eradicated.Bowlsbys comment, however, has been ridiculed on social media as being too accepting of any sexual assaults taking place on college campuses.Later on Monday, Bowlsby was asked to clarify his comments about sexual assaults on college campuses.Ive only worked on campus for 35 years, Bowlsby said. Thats not blaming anybody. Thats just the reality of it on a college campus. Its not right, but thats what goes on. Thats what every Thursday, Friday, Saturday night is. Im not sure what else to say. I wasnt being flippant about it. I dont think it mitigates it.It should never happen and we should do everything we can to eradicate it. But if you put 25,000 18- to 22-year-olds on a campus together and mix in any of those other things, there are going to be people that make bad decisions. Im not talking about victims or survivors or perpetrators. Thats just what happens. Im really not trying to be crass about it. I just know thats the environment thats on campus.Three federal Title IX lawsuits involving sexual assaults are pending against Baylor, and they represent claims by eight women, including two who said they were assaulted by Bears football players.I came away with enhanced confidence that David Garland was very intent upon doing the right things and leading the university out of a dark chapter and that the board [of regents] was similarly committed, Bowlsby told ESPN. Having said that, this is a very long process and it has many steps to it, not the least of which are all the things that the Pepper Hamilton report details need to be done, and some of them are pretty big projects. But saying it and doing it are two different things.How long the conference waits depends on the patience of the board of directors, which is composed of the presidents of the member schools, including Baylor. Bowlsby said they realize this is a long process, but I dont think theyre going to wait forever, regardless of where Baylor is with its various lawsuits.Bowlsby said Baylor is aware that there could be repercussions for not turning over the information, although he wouldnt say what those might be. The conference, which distributes about $25 million to each of its member institutions, doesnt have specific bylaws that address this, he said, adding that the board has a wide array of options if and when the time comes.Its also unclear what would happen if the conference received the information and then determined that Baylor had violated bylaws regarding compliance with Title IX and unfair competition, because the league doesnt have the power to impose the same sort of punishment as the NCAA. Bowlsby didnt rule it out, though.If its determined they werent in compliance [with Title IX], theres a provision in our bylaws that says they have to be in compliance but it doesnt apply a specific remedy for that, Bowlsby said. So the board would have to get back together once that finding is finalized and determined what, if any, penalty or sanction there might be at the conference level. ' ' '
