Michigan State, athletic department slammed in explosive ESPN report

The more than 6,000-word report based on the investigation, under the headline, "Michigan State secrets extend far beyond Larry Nassar case", was published Friday afternoon and, if accurate, could send more tremors through an embattled and embarrassed university. "Our top priority in this healing process is for our courageous survivors".
He also acknowledged the MSU Board of Trustees' request for the Attorney General's office to review the events surrounding the Nassar case.
Forsyth, who retired from Kent County in 2016 after 30 years as prosecutor, said his team will look at rules and regulations at the school that were meant to protect athletes and determine if they are sufficient or if they were being enforced properly.
The investigation began previous year, Schuette's office said, but the scope and makeup of the probe wasn't announced until Saturday, during a week in which Nassar was sentenced to state prison and two top officials stepped down. "This investigation is and will continue to be, independent, thorough, transparent and prompt", said Schuette. Schuette says the main focus will be on who at MSU might have fielded complaints from victims and what they did with that information.
"We will cooperate with any investigation going forward", he said.
He said he will not be working with the Board of Trustees. I am not running away from anything, I am running toward something.
At a press conference Saturday, Schuette vowed to shine a "bright light" into every department at the university.
"We will meet with every victim".
The report states students told investigators that Michigan State athletes "have a reputation for engaging in sexual harassment and sexual assault and not being punished for it, because athletes are held in such high regard at the university". That being said, today I am announcing my retirement.
Forsyth acknowledged hearing statements delivered by victims in court and said he would not allow preconceived notions of guilt or innocence drive the investigation.
Yet former Michigan State sexual assault counselor Lauren Allswede, who left the university in 2015 over frustrations about how administrators handled sexual assault cases, told Outside the Lines that MSU administrators' entire approach to such cases has been misguided for years. "When we're done we can't promise that everyone will like what we find, but we can promise we will do it right", he said. "They are at the core of our athletic department mission statement", Hollis said.
Michigan State is scheduled to play a basketball game at 8 p.m. on Friday night against Wisconsin, after which Izzo is scheduled to address the media.
