Baylor Suspends Two Football Players After Sexual Assault Allegations

Baylor suspended two football players after they were accused of sexual assault.

Baylor head coach Matt Rhule told KCEN-TV the players were separated from the team after being accused of assault by female members of the school's equestrian team.

"I can't get into too many of the details on this specific incident," Rhule told KCEN-TV. "I really don't know too many of the details on this specific incident, but I do know things have been handled the right way."

ESPN obtained a police report from an incident in which two Baylor female students told authorities they were sexually assaulted at an apartment complex in Waco on Nov. 12.

The alleged incident occurred hours after Baylor lost to Texas Tech 38-24 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Baylor went on to finish Rhule's first season at the school with a record of 1–11.

In 2016, an internal investigation by Philadelphia law firm Pepper Hamilton that concluded that there were “institutional failures at every level” at Baylor in addressing sexual violence on campus.

Head football coach Art Briles was fired, athletic director Ian McCaw was suspended and resigned, and other department employees were fired as a result of the Hamilton report.

The school had faced up to a half-dozen lawsuits from women who say the university did nothing for years, while sexual assault was rampant on campus. Baylor is also being investigated by the U.S. Department of Education for their response to sexual assaults.

According to the report, the alleged victims in this case reported the incident to Baylor equestrian coach Casie Maxwell, which made its way to the school's Title IX office and then to the chief of Baylor Police Department.

"I feel like the university put those processes in place, and it's our job to carry them out," Rhule said. "And, from what I've seen, the university has carried them out and everything has been done in a way that it should be done."

This is the adorable moment when a joyous horse soars through air in breathtaking fashion during impressive free jumps. This young Dutch warmblood mare named Incredible C loves to play. Here she is caught on tape jumping Stal Wilten's indoor course by herself, surely practicing for her next round! Chances are you've seen plenty of videos of horses and riders conquering tall fences together, but in truth, horses don't need riders in order to jump fences. This video shows a talented horse free jumping over several fences while having a time of her life. The horse is well-balanced, moving naturally, and demonstrates beautiful form over the fences. Great joy girl! Free jumping refers to setting a horse up to jump fences on his own. Usually, horse owners set up jumping chutes which run down one side of the arena to direct the horse toward the fence, keeping him from running out around the side of the fence. Footage shows a young <a href="https://rumble.com/v3k81t-horse-loves-a-good-scratch.html" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:horse" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">horse</a>, playfully running around and jumping through obstacles just for fun! Judging by the way she runs and hops, this female is definitely well-trained! She soars in the air and scores with flying colors! Free jumping can be a useful tool for developing a horse's confidence and balance, since the horse must learn how to use himself over fences. However, it's very important that you properly set your horse up for free jumping. It may be tempting to <a href="https://rumble.com/v32xin-rider-tries-to-complete-course-but-her-headstrong-horse-has-a-different-ide.html" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:ask your horse to jump higher" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">ask your horse to jump higher</a> and higher fences, but asking too much of your horse too soon can risk physical injury and may damage his confidence. Remember that jumping is strenuous on a horse. Jumping sessions need to be kept short in order to give the horse plenty of time for recovery between sessions. Some breed registries require that a horse be free jumped to assess their talent. This free jumping assessment is used when horses are young and aren't yet broken to saddle, but free jumping also allows us to see the horse's natural talent without the influence of a rider. There are many reasons to free jump a horse, but if you're going to give this practice a try, make sure you have an experienced equestrian to show you how to properly free jump your horse.

Report: Baylor Redshirt Football Players Involved in Sexual Assault Investigation

Two Baylor redshirt football players, along with two other student suspects, are reportedly under investigation in connection with a sexual assault involving Baylor female athletes, per KWTX.

The complainant and victim are reportedly members of the school's equestrian team.

The alleged incident occurred at an apartment complex on the evening of Nov. 11 into the morning of Nov. 12. According to Baylor's online crime log, it was reported Nov. 14 as "Alcohol-Minors Consuming/Sexual Assault.” But police reports obtained by KWTX are dated Nov. 17 and the date discrepancy wasn't explained.

Pictures and video have been taken into evidence, with some of them possibly being posted to social media, reports KWTX. Four Baylor faculty or staff members have been interviewed but the station was unable to verify if they were athletic department personnel.

The investigation is ongoing.

Baylor underwent a huge sexual assault scandal starting in 2015 that led to the firing of football coach Art Briles and discipline for its president and athletic director.

Texas has reeled in one of the best ADs in college sports. A source told SI that TCU’s Chris Del Conte will be hired by UT.

The affable Del Conte will replace Longhorn athletic director Mike Perrin, who took over on an interim basis in 2015 after Steve Patterson was canned by university president Greg Fenves.

In a wide-ranging survey of ADs and national media by SI this year, Del Conte received the second-most points amongst his peers, trailing only OU’s Joe Castiglione. Among Del Conte’s biggest accomplishments at TCU were getting the Horned Frogs into the Big 12 Conference and over $300 million in construction projects that were all donor funded.

Mille Bright may have styled her game on watching John Terry play for Chelsea, but it is advice from a grandfather that inspires her every time she steps on to the pitch. Bright is not a woman to be messed with, strong and aggressive, she admits she wants to physically dominate strikers, something she has always been encouraged to do by her grandad. The Chelsea centre back, who grew up in Derbyshire, is the only player to have started all four of England’s European Championship games and has been superb in her first international tournament. The 23-year-old has been one of the main reasons behind England’s excellent defensive record - with just one goal conceded - and revealed that she saw Terry as the perfect centre back to learn from. “I’d say I’m a front foot defender,” said Bright, a Chesterfield supporter, who gave up on a promising equestrian career to concentrate on football when she was a teenager. “I want to get in there and win my battles and I never hesitate to go in for a challenge. Bright says she modeled her game on former Chelsea defender John Terry Credit: PA “In terms of watching how centre backs play, I’ve always looked up to John Terry. I’ve always watched the Chelsea men’s team and Terry has been a massive defender for me and a rock. “He is really good at doing his one v one defending and reading the game. I have probably watched a lot of his clips. In the women’s game, I have been playing alongside Steph (Houghton) and just watching her. It is also good to watch my own performance back and just making sure that I keep on top of that. “The thing with Terry is that it is his position which decides whether he can step in to make a tackle. The positioning is the base and the rest falls into place. I try not to over think things. If you give yourself too much to think about, that is when the mistakes come in. “Keep it basic and that is what I have been doing well at this tournament– winning my headers, and making sure I win my 1-1 battles.” Although Bright may have picked up some tricks of the centre-back trade by watching Terry, her attitude, her desire and her combative streak are down to her grandfather Arthur. Meet the Lionesses “You have to make the strikers fear you,” she added. “Make it difficult for them to get on the ball and go into different areas. That makes my job easier. You have to get one above your opponent, being on the front foot allows you to do that. It allows you to dominate them. “What makes me so strong in the tackle? My grandad has always said if you’re going in for a ball you go 100% and you never go in half-hearted. If it’s a 50-50, he always used to say, ‘Millie, you’re coming out with it.’ Every game I’ve had that mindset, I just make sure I go in and win it. “If there is ever a tackle when I’ve gone in half-hearted, he’ll always say ‘Millie you’ll get injured’ and ‘you’ve lost your battle&#39;. He’s really competitive, just as much as me. “He wants me to succeed, but more than that he wants the team to succeed too, and he’s definitely the one who is responsible for that. His name is Arthur Bramall. “He used to work in the mines, he’s retired now, but he’s been a big part of my career. When a lot of people doubted me, he’s always been the one to pick me up and he’s the guy to I go to for the football talk. My grandad gives me an honest opinion on the games and my performance. I really respect him for that. He’s really helped me develop as a person and a player, and he’s always been honest with me, whether I’ve had a good or bad game, where I need to improve.” England are yet to concede a goal in the European Championships Credit: AFP England’s defeat of France in the quarter-final means they are the highest ranked team left in the tournament, although they will have to beat the host nation in Thursday’s semi-final in Enschede, home of FC Twente. Bright, though, has no fear of facing a hostile home crowd and England are confident of progressing to Sunday’s final, given they knocked hosts Canada out of the World Cup two years ago. It would be their first European final since they were thrashed 6-2 by Germany back in 2009, but Bright knows they will have to be at their best to beat Holland. “We’re confident we can beat anyone,” she added. “We kept France out and if you can do it against the top team in the competition, you can do it against the hosts.” £250,000 up for grabs: pick your Telegraph Fantasy Football team today &gt;&gt;

It's David Hasselhoff's 65th birthday and we're celebrating with his best sports photos

On this day in 1952, a legend was born. That legend would became famous for driving an electronic car, running on the beach in slow motion and becoming a musical icon in Germany. That's right, today is David Hasselhoff's 65th birthday and we're celebrating with his best sports photos.

Hasselhoff the Equestrian poses in Los Angeles during a 1978 photo shoot. Why he's not wearing a shirt is a question we can not answer.

Dyan cannon needed a big draw for the 1984 Big Brother-Big Sister Bowling Benefit?, and Hasselhoff delivered.

The Hoff shows off The Legs during a 1986 tennis match.

Hasselhoff was a fixture on the '80s charity game circuit, appearing at the 1988 Teamm House event. No word on whether Coke paid for the product placement.

When Bill Clinton needs the advice of a foreign relations expert, he turns to The Hoff, as he did in this 1995 jog.

Over the past few years, Hasselhoff has been doing the 'celebrity fan' thing, including appearances at a NFL game in Wembley Stadium and a Clippers-Thunders game in L.A.

Hasselhoff will always be an entertainer, as evident in this Baywatch-inspired performance at the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens tournament in April 2016.
