Baylor acting head coach Jim Grobe has disputed the universitys account of how Jeremy Faulk was kicked off the football team in June, saying the defensive lineman had been suspended by the team but not dismissed?after he was accused of sexual assault. Scooter Gennett Brewers Jersey .Faulk, a junior college transfer who reportedly has won an appeal to be reinstated, has said he was ousted after he was questioned about a sexual assault that allegedly occurred on campus in April and about an incident that occurred when he was enrolled at Florida Atlantic.The circumstances of Faulks departure remained unclear Monday night, illustrating a level of dysfunction that continues to ruffle the Baylor football program and keep the school under the cloud of a sexual assault scandal that has dragged on for more than a year.Last week, KWTX-TV in Waco, Texas, reported that Faulk won an appeal to have his scholarship reinstated in July. But because a Title IX investigation has remained open for four months, Faulk hasnt been allowed to re-enroll at Baylor and rejoin the football team.Grobes comments were met with widespread support from eight of the Bears current assistant coaches, as well as several staff members and a handful of former players, who nearly simultaneously tweeted a link to the story containing his comments on Monday night, along with the hashtag #TRUTHDONTLIE.Baylor executive associate athletics director Nick Joos told ESPN on Monday night that the university addressed the issue of the Baylor coaches tweeting about the case.Weve handled that internally and were not going to comment any further on it, Joos said. Weve handled that here tonight.On Tuesday, Baylor athletic director Mack Rhoades appeared on ESPN Central Texas AM 1660 and confirmed the situation is being handled internally and no Baylor coaches will be suspended.During his weekly news conference with reporters on Monday, Grobe said he made the decision to suspend Faulk after he was accused of sexual assault. According to KWTX, he later called the station to clarify his remarks and said he didnt make the decision to dismiss Faulk from the university and strip him of his scholarship.I think thats the way most coaches deal with problems if youve got kids that have issues. They may come back to the football team, but they may not temporarily be able to represent the football team, and thats not just Jeremy -- its any kid on our football team, Grobe told reporters on Monday.Faulk, who transferred to Baylor after playing at Garden City (Kansas) Community College, told ESPN on June 10 that he was dismissed from the Baylor team after he was questioned about a sexual assault that allegedly occurred on campus in April, and also about an incident that occurred when he was enrolled at Florida Atlantic.Faulk, from Palatka, Florida, told Outside the Lines that police never questioned him about the April 21 incident and he wasnt arrested. Baylor police provided ESPN with a heavily redacted incident report.On Friday, Baylors Joos said in a statement that Faulk was dismissed from the school on June 3 based upon violations of the university and athletic department Code of Conduct. Joos also said in the statement that Grobe and the interim athletics director made the decision to dismiss Faulk and did not require other Executive Council members nor Title IX staff involvement.Grobe, who has guided the No. 11 Bears to a 5-0 record going into Saturdays home game against Kansas, didnt respond to phone calls from ESPN.com.Grobe, a former Wake Forest coach, was hired on May 30 to replace former Baylor coach Art Briles, who was fired three days earlier in the wake of the universitys sexual assault scandal.For the past several months, Baylor has been at the center of nationwide attention over its handling of sexual assault allegations and investigations, including several that involved athletes. After the Philadelphia law firm Pepper Hamilton issued a scathing summary of its findings from a monthslong investigation, Briles was fired, former university president and chancellor Kenneth Starr was demoted and later resigned, and athletics director Ian McCaw resigned.Last week, Baylor Title IX coordinator Patty Crawford resigned and alleged that the universitys leadership wouldnt allow her to fulfill her responsibilities and that the school continues to violate Title IX. Crawford, who was hired as Baylors first full-time Title IX coordinator in 2014, also filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Educations Office for Civil Rights about the way Baylor is handling Title IX complaints.Faulks dismissal from Baylor angered Jeff Sims, a former Florida Atlantic assistant and head coach at Garden City. He said Baylor officials wanted to rid themselves of Faulk even before it was proved if he committed sexual assault. Sims also alleged that Grobe told him during a phone call in June that the allegations would go away if Faulk left Waco.Grobe says to me, Listen, if he just leaves, he can go on, and we wont stop him from playing anywhere, and this investigation will stop, Sims told ESPN.To me, thats the whole reason they got in trouble -- either Jeremys innocent, and they should go through the process, and he should get his scholarship back and play. Or hes guilty, and this girl should get some justice, Sims said.Faulk told Outside the Lines in June that he was initially told he was expelled from the university. At the time, Baylor officials would only confirm to Outside the Lines that he was no longer enrolled in school. In June, Faulk provided to Outside the Lines an email from a Baylor academic support official stating that his withdrawal had been finalized, but Faulk said he never asked to withdraw from school.The same morning Faulk received the email telling him his withdrawal from the university was final, he received another from the athletic department compliance office saying there is not a Title IX report at Baylor involving him. Faulk responded a few hours later by sending an email requesting a hearing and a chance to defend himself anyway. Only then did the Title IX office send him -- two hours later -- an email stating hed been named as a respondent in a case and had been accused of violating the schools sexual discrimination, violence and harassment policy. The email provided no further details of an incident.No ones given me a reason why Ive been released, Faulk told Outside the Lines. If I just leave, it will look like Im guilty, and I didnt do anything.Outside The Lines reporter Paula Lavigne contributed to this report. Paul Molitor Jersey . At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014. Will Middlebrooks Brewers Jersey . -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No. http://www.baseballbrewersofficial.com/robin-yount-jersey-c-14/ . The parade and rally were held to celebrate the Saskatchewan Roughriders 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday in the CFLs championship game. Towards the end of Indias practice session at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on Monday, Rohit Sharma ignored a teasing legbreak outside his off stump. Cheteshwar Pujara, the deliverer of that legbreak, grinned. Someone behind him - possibly R Ashwin - yelled out: Bowled, Yasir!In the first half of 2015, Pujara versus Rohit was a batsman-against-batsman contest, a selection headache for Indias Test-match team management. Now, things were a little different. Pujara was bowling to Rohit. No matter what Rohit did, Pujara was yelping excitedly, whether it was a defensive push into the off side - caught at silly point! - or a leg-side slog - caught at midwicket!Pujara had already finished a long batting stint, as had M Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane. In pairs, they had rotated through three different nets - seamers, spinners and throwdowns.Rohit had not batted with that group. He was now batting against Pujara, Ashwin - who continued bowling despite a long spell against the first set of batsmen - and a pair of net bowlers. At the other two nets were Wriddhiman Saha and Stuart Binny.Binny, by then, had bowled a lengthy spell, and had looked particularly sharp against Dhawan, swerving the ball past the left-handers outside edge on a couple of occasions. Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami had bowled alongside Binny at the seamers net, and had both looked to hit fullish lengths, with Ishant sending down the odd bouncer for variety.Concurrently, Ashwin, Jadeja and Amit Mishra had been in operation at the spinners net. When the first set of batsmen had completed their sessions, Mishra had bowled to an empty net with head coach Anil Kumble keeping close watch. With the toe of his shoe, Kumble had drawn a line extending down the pitch from leg stump, and seemed to instruct his legspinner to try and pitch the ball within the stumps, perhaps in order to keep the lbw and the outside edge in play.Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shardul Thakur only came out when the core batting group had finished its session, and bowled solely to Rohit, Saha, the allrounders, and the lower order.Watching the first half - or three-quarters, in terms of time - of the net session, it seemed as though India had narrowed their squad down to 13 for the first Test in Antigua. Rohit, Umesh, Bhuvneshwar and Thakurr did not seem to be among the 13. Milwaukee Brewers Hoodie. It also looked like India were planning to play five bowlers - or four specialists and an allrounder - leaving them two major calls to make on the eve of the match: whether to pick Dhawan or Rahul to partner Vijay at the top of the order; and whether to pick a seam-bowling allrounder in Binny, a spin-bowling allrounder in Jadeja, or to pick both and leave out Mishra.With three days to go for the Test match, not too much could be gleaned from looking at the pitch, straw-coloured and glowing in the afternoon sun, except that there was hardly any grass on it. The pitches in St. Kitts, where India played their two warm-up matches, were on the slow side, and Ashwin had reckoned his team would need to be patient in order to take 20 wickets given similar conditions in the Test series. Im sure Ill have to be as boring as possible in terms of trying to plug away all day long, he had said.On Monday, Rahane reinforced that point, from both batting and bowling perspectives.Patience will be the key as a batting unit but once you get set it is important to [make] each and every session [count] because we will have to give time for our bowlers, he said. It is not easy to take 20 wickets on this kind of pitches, especially on the slower tracks. As a batting unit, we will have to take responsibility and I think one or two batsmen will have to get set and score big here.And that, he said, might mean a guarded approach from the batsmen.You cut out certain shots because, technically, I dont think we will have to change anything really. But we will have to cut out some shots initially, in the first or second session, and after that when you get used to the conditions you will play your shots. But initially, it is important to take time for yourself. If you are used to getting 100 in 150 balls, maybe here you will have to get 100 in 200 balls. So as a batsman it is important to play at least 200-plus balls here.It will be even more vital for Indias specialist batsmen to spend time at the crease if there are only five of them. The trade-off, of course, is an extra bowler, another body to share the workload of taking 20 wickets in sluggish conditions. Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
