Over the past two years or so some of you may have followed and/or un-followed me @Pokelahoma on Twitter. For me it's been a sewing circle like blend of responsible alcohol talk, civil language, lies and occasional points about my Alma Mater, Oklahoma State. Twitter has been great but from time to time I'd like to rant in some depth and CRFF is a great place to do it.
So, I'm tired of Penn State. I'm tired of reading about them and this will be it for me. Frankly, it's tragic and you can't make jokes about it so I'm out of my element here. As the story progressed, the more I heard about the rural school with alumni in power positions that depended on football to raise its academic profile the more uncomfortable I got.
Does that sound like a school you might know/love/have gotten arrested at? My uneasiness hit the breaking point yesterday evening. It was time for drastic action to remedy my stressful situation. I had a glass of whiskey, turned on some soft music and stared lovingly at my girlfriend. She knew........so she went and got my laptop from the cabinet. It was TIME TO EMAIL THE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT AND ASK A QUESTION! If an employee at Oklahoma State witnesses a crime, Can the university interfere like at Penn State?
Probably not, no. Turns out the university has a third party agency run their reporting system and it's completely anonymous. The janitor scared he'd lose his job if he reported the shower rape? Nobody in power would even know he reported what he saw if it happened in Stillwater. The system exists for any type of allegation and OkState employees get to remain completely anonymous. So that...that's neat for sure.
