    Yeah, I am sure if she had previously spoken out about "gender equity", the AJC would have ignored it.

    What - missed layups, bad turnovers? Hell, then the men are playing fundamentals too!

    Oh damn not this again.

    Seriously, no disrespect to women, but guys are fagging themselves out and breaking records in women’s sports.

    It is what it is.

    My statement was a general reference to women’s basketball and the first thing you hear from some defender of the game when someone else says it’s like watching paint dry.

    I have no idea how Tech’s women’s team has played lately.

    rumor: is-not a sex issue... and GTAA isn't clean of miss steps.

    Interesting the way you phrased that. CMJ has a clause in her contract that gives her a contract extension for making the NCAA tournament this year. CJP wasn’t even placed on leave when his bagman was throwing a pool party in Arizona for our players. The wrong öööö would have to be pretty bad to place a coach on leave who is on the verge of gaining a contract extension when it has never been done before, right? Particularly when the charges haven’t even been investigated yet. Gender equity and all. I’m sure the AA will be extremely forthcoming when their investigation is complete. Unless, of course, the lawsuit settlement conveniently includes an NDA. On the other hand, if the charges are that great, won’t the NCAA investigate anyway? Oddly enough, the NCAA recently completed an investigation of this program only weeks ago...at the request of our compliance department...and was found 100% clean. This is going to be an interesting lawsuit.

    JJ, I get your attitude and I respect it. The ladies can’t compete with men at the highest levels. But we live in a Title IX world that places these exceptional student athletes on our campus as representatives of Georgia Tech. Their success and the way they comport themselves should be important to all of us. The example they set is huge in the recruitment of women into STEM programs. That is an incredible niche for Georgia Tech that we need to leverage.

    Perhaps Bill Donaldson should go all ham on this investigation.

    I’m confused. Was she fired for being in a homosexual relationship? That doesn’t sound like something GT’s leadership would fire her for.

    It seems unlikely to be something so simple.

    No and no. You can't be fired for being gay. No charge of any affair with a student. But clappers note that Pastner got a total pass on a recruiting violation investigation from GTAA while CMJ did not-may explain the suit.
    The bigger issue is why is the NCAA looking at GT recruiting? Is it just female BB?

    I suppose there are limitless reasons for a "gender equity" related claim, but this makes sense.

    No. I am sure her orientation is well-known and is surely protected status per GT policy. The rumor of an "inappropriate relationship" with a subordinate or player popped up on another board, but it appears that was never the issue at all.

    I'm shocked to learn that homosexuality exists in women's sports.

    Since we're just speculating anyway, let's make a list of all the things that could get a coach suspended. I'll start:
    • Being a Russian spy / treason
    • Inappropriate relationship with a player or subordinate
    • Gambling / points shaving
    • Misappropriation of government funds
    • Severe recruiting violation / coordinating bag people
    • Cruelty to animals
