Wow, the lawsuits are piling up. This has to be a major distraction. Poor nolies.
I think we need to pay this ourselves...we dont want Taggart going anywhere.... I honestly think FSU or TPD will try to use this kind of crap to get them out of Willies contract since those dumb asses are broke.
It's never acceptable to say "poor nolies" even with sarcasm.
Somebody is going to be poorer
No shit. Time to pass the hat around
Wow. Is this unprecedented?
I think Taggart has already told the FSU administration that his one-million-dollar donation to the school was a mistake and he needs it back.
May I opine in a somewhat different angle?
There but for the grace...
Second hospitalized Oregon football player files lawsuit against UO, Willie Taggart, strength coach, NCAA for $5 million
The articles seem to suggest that the Oderinde was not certified as a strength coach. I am surprised this doesn't happen more often given the intensity of football workouts including those at UF. It seems the focus of the case is denying fluids during the workouts, which if true is almost criminal given what we have known for decades.
I'm concerned this could cut short Willlllllie's tenure at ref$u
Yep, me too. I thought this in the last Willie lawsuit thread. This just bolsters that theory.
With some luck they will just hire WT v2.0 after they give Willie the boot. Regardless, they are circling the drain and it may already be years to climb out of this hole. Even if they find decent coaching. Heres to hoping.
I think the problem for FSU is that all of this was known prior to his hiring. There was an investigation, the strength coach was suspended for a month, was known to be uncertified, Taggart issued a public apology, Taggart was removed as the strength coach supervisor and that coach thereafter reported to and was responsible to someone else not under Taggart. The only thing different is the allegations which were in the public domain have now found there way into a lawsuit.
Good point. I wonder if @CaptUSMCNole can share any insights on that. Where is that guy these days?....
Would him misrepresenting the severity have an effect? There's no way he led them to believe he would be sued twice in his first year, which would be even more of a cause - lying during the hiring process.
I think he went dark after the latest sexual assault allegations against his boy JW came to light, and it dawned on him what he was defending so vigorously back in 2013.
Oh, I thought it might have had something to do with 41-14
No way this guy survives another season. I suspect FSU will be looking for a new head coach by the end of this year.
This was all national news when it happened. There is no way f$u can claim they didn't know about it and use it as a reason to get out of Slick's contract.
