AG Bill Schuette announces investigation into Michigan State

Michigan State University is currently under investigation

I'm here tonight to say that any accusations of my handling of any complaints of sexual assault individually are completely false. I've always been a Spartan, and always will be.

Dantonio was asked about rumors that he was planning to resign.

On Thursday, Aly Raisman declared that "this is bigger than Larry Nassar", as the star athlete insisted that others must be held accountable for the evil doctor's pattern of sexual abuse.

Additionally, students attending the evening basketball game are encouraged to wear teal T-shirts for a "Teal Out" of the Izzone.

Nassar was sentenced Wednesday to decades in state prison for molestations after an extraordinary seven-day court hearing where more than 150 women and girls gave victim statements or had them read in court.

Yes. Michigan State is under the microscope. Yes.

Spokeswoman Anna Heaton said Friday the governor is studying whether the potential move could interfere with other investigations. MI attorney general Bill Schuette also plans to open a probe into the university.

And then, one after another, board members spoke.

Earlier in the week, the march was planned as a call for Simon's resignation.

Nassar, 54, served as the USA gymnastics team physician for several Olympic Games through 2012 and worked at Michigan State since the 1990s. The USOC had threatened to decertify the organization, which besides picking US national teams is the umbrella organization for hundreds of clubs across the country.

Tragedies are politicized? Perhaps Simon was talking about some internal strife on the Board of Trustee's, which has certainly been the case, but to most in the general public they are left wondering what the heck she is talking about.

"What will be determined is if these administrators were simply more interested in protecting their brand or protecting the student-athletes and what, in fact, was done", Gurney said. USAG said it "embraces the requirements".

The House Energy and Commerce Committee has begun an investigation of sexual abuse in organized sports.

Hannum, who was treated by disgraced former sports doctor Larry Nassar, reached out to Nike about the apparel company's partnership with Michigan State. The letters follow the sentencing of Nassar for molesting women and girls under the guise of medical treatment. One man that comes up in this conversation is John Geddert, one of the top gymnastics coaches that worked alongside Nassar and one of his closest friends.

Hollis, who was been the school's athletic director since 2008, will officially step down on Wednesday.

Following Nassar's sentencing, Michigan State University released a statement, saying, "We are committed to continue supporting those in our community affected by these bad crimes".

USA Gymnastics and Michigan State did not respond to requests for comment on whether they would resume settlement talks.

The evisceration of Michigan State University in the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal continues. The Board of Trustees decided Friday that Bill Beekman, the board's secretary and a university vice president, will temporarily take Simon's place while a search is conducted for an interim president. Rocks are about to get turned over in East Lansing. His office said details will be announced next week.

Michigan State's Board of Trustees will gather Friday for a "work session", according to school spokesman Jason Cody.
