    More charges filed against Strampel.

    I hope Geddert ends up in jail soon too, the amount of physical and emotional abuse he personally inflicted on his girls is unreal.

    A few months ago, the chief law dude at MSU retired in the midst of the Nassar investigations. Now his acting replacement has resigned--it has been alleged that she knew about bad stuff there years ago and didn't do enough to stop it.

    Others have pointed out that USA Gymnastis and the USOC are next.

    Perhaps MSU could try to auction off the athletic department assets as a way to reimburse the University and perhaps not burden the university students and taxpayers of Michigan.

    This seems a very good reason to end the athletic program at MSU and it should have been a good reason to end it at Penn State.

    How do you divvy up $500M among ( how many?) women?

    I read that there are about 330 women who are currently on record as having been molested. That is $425m worth of the settlement. They also set aside $75m for later reporting cases.

    I just noticed someone above said the number is 332.

    Please remember that the women will not get the $425M, with $75M held in abeyance. The lawyers will first take 1/3rd (or more) off the top and the women will probably get (in total) about $300-350M

    Of course, no lawyers, no settlement.

    Assuming an equal distribution of $425m, that's $1.28m per instance (332). With an assumed 2/3 going to athletes, that is an average of $840k each.

    I'm not sure how that compares to other circumstances of sexual assault in the USA but I'd assume there are many treated much worse who will never get a dollar because of the poverty of their rapist or his employer.

    You're assuming that there was only one instance per woman. That may not be the case. And if it isn't the case, your assumption of equal distribution may not be the way it happens.
