New Lawsuit Against Baylor Alleges 52 Rapes Took Place in Four Years Under Art Briles

A former Baylor student who claims she was raped by two Baylor football players filed a federal lawsuit on Friday against the University alleging 31 Baylor football players committed 52 acts of rape — including five gang rapes — between 2011 and 2014, according to a report from the Dallas Morning News.

Disturbingly, the report states that the University paid off one woman who said she was raped by giving her free tuition in exchange for her silence.

The lawsuit, 26 pages in length filed against the Universty, goes into detail about a specific report of gang rape and even more detail about how football and rape became synonymous under Art Briles — the former Baylor coach who was fired earlier in 2016.

The football program, which soared to new heights under Briles, was also said to have used sex to recruit football players. One of the policies being to “show ’em a good time.” Assistant coach Kendall Briles (son of Art) was said to have used the phrase: “Do you like white women? Because we have a lot of them at Baylor and they love football players” in the recruitment effort of a Dallas area high school athlete.
