Tom Izzo is a piece of shit

Post by MWmetalhead » Sat Jan 20, 2018 7:41 pm

Tom hopes "the right guy was convicted." He made this outrageously stupid comment after claiming to have listened to victims' courtroom testimony.

He has "unwavering" support for Lou Anna Simon.

How can anyone support such a despicable piece of human garbage??? Listen to her response around the :55 mark. This vile lady has ZERO empathy for the victims and seems only concerned with protecting her institution's financial ass.

I watched that Izzo video and was shocked. Tom is no stranger to the press conference world and he had to know those questions were coming. How those statements came out of his mouth is a total mystery. Normally this time if year I have checked out of 97.1 but tomorrow I may listen to hear what Valenti says.

FWIW, Caputo harshly rebuked the university and Izzo during his midday shift yesterday.

He called the actions of the board and of Simon "PROFOUNDLY disappointing."

And, yes, he was damn near shouting when he said "profoundly."

Mr. Caputo had trouble forming a cogent sentence at times yesterday because I think he is incredibly disgusted and shocked by what's taken place here. I give him credit for devoting much of his show to the Nassar matter and for speaking out against his alma mater.

Shocking that someone with the University of Michigan seal is calling Tom Izzo a piece of shit.

But considering how many pieces of shit you've come across in radio and at the University of Michigan as a grad you'd know all about pieces of shit.

Its a damned shame you weren't more tuned in to warn people about the monster calling himself Larry Nassar.

It is the MSU administration that sat on its ass while report after report of this guy sexually abusing his patients came to light. Your attempt to deflect is laughable.

I've been harshly critical of my alma mater and its leadership on prior occasions when warranted. I've lampooned Detroit area media for giving U-M a free pass on such occasions as well.

So, do you care to express an opinion on whether or not Simon should still have a job?

Late today, Izzo *finally* issued a clarification regarding the "I hope they caught the right guy" portion of his remarks. (What the hell took him so long?) Nonetheless, he apparently still adores and fully supports Simon, which makes him a clueless moron at best and a total piece of shit at worst.

I will accept Izzo's backtrack as an admission he screwed up Friday. But I still scratch my head how a guy with his level of media experience could have gone there. It was almost "Trumpesk."

Very good editorial at MLive today. Izzo and other Simon defenders should read it.

Appallingly, until today, MSU was still sending medical bills to Nassar's patients. Unbelievable. This sad fact is making national news and is dealing MSU yet another black eye.

Craig, to answer an earlier question you posed, Mr. Valenti is embarrassed and sickened by this whole situation, is "completely disgusted" by MSU's Board of Trustees, and wants Lou Anna K Simon gone.

He spent most of his show today on the Nassar case, and in particular, the tone-deaf conduct of the Board of Trustees and Simon.

He also expressed disbelief and frustration over Izzo's bizarre comments from last Friday night.

About 20 minutes ago, Valenti remarked that "MSU couldn't have handled the last week any more poorly if they tried." He also described the Nassar crimes (and the university's horrific response) as the "worst sexual misconduct case in the history of sports."

Yes, I heard his interview with Staudt. I've commented on that on the political forum.

Ferguson is vile; I hope he rots in hell.

He's such a sleazebag that he outsourced damage control following his reprehensible remarks to a staffer!

Even Lynn Henning and Rochelle Riley of all people have penned articulate, very moving opinion columns on the Nassar tragedy, and in particular, the offensive and baffling conduct of Simon, the Board and others.

How on earth can Tom Izzo support such a vile, detestable human being?
Those who spoke in court also blamed MSU for not doing enough to stop the abuse. One of them, Amanda Thomashow, went to MSU officials in 2014 and said Nassar had molested her during an appointment. That prompted a Title IX investigation, but Nassar was cleared. The investigator who handled that case has since been promoted, Target 8 found.

Last week, when Target 8 questioned Simon about MSU’s commitment to creating a better environment for reporting abuse in light of that promotion, Simon responded that it was not the time nor place to ask questions about the university.

The bright side? Late breaking news reports (from WILX, Detroit Free Press, NY Daily News and the State News) indicate Queen Lou Anna K. will *finally* abdicate her throne either Thursday or Friday of this week.

Izzo and Dantonio knew about the situations with their players and tried to cover it up. It is obvious. How they still have jobs is baffling.

Name a person involved with this situation who is NOT a piece of shit? MSU=Failed. USA Gymnastics=Failed. NCAA=Failed. Olympic committee=Failed. Media=Failed. FBI=Failed. The problem is that we can see all the heads roll that we like, but who does it hurt, and who does it help? It hurts the students. It hurts the athletes. Does it help the victims? Not sure. Will it help the dude who lost control in court and tried to attack Nassar? Nope. He is clearly suffering from a severe case of guilt. Three daughters. Did none of them ever say anything? My hope is that they did. It's difficult to swallow that this guy had three daughters being abused and knew NOTHING about it.

Additionally, we've known about this for what, a year now? Why are the heads just rolling now? Why are we calling people out as pieces of shit now? Because, like the FBI, MSU, NCAA, USA Gymnastics, Olympic committee, the parents, and the media, we all sat on our stupid asses and waited around until it was popular to jump on the "Piece of shit" bandwagon. Shame on them, and shame on us.

As for Izzo specifically, maybe we should hold of on the lynching until we have some solid proof of what he DID, and not just what He SAID. Again.. Bandwagon. Everyone jump on the guilt train! Destination? Nowhere.

I disagree with a good portion of your remarks, DAC, and will address them point by point later today.

One of the main problems is that too many people like Lou Anna Simon exist in today's society. She made obscene amounts of money (I believe, nearly a million dollars a year for 14 years and that's just as President!) and yet couldn't do her job even remotely properly. She's an incredibly ugly person inside and out. She shouldn't have been afforded the luxury of resigning on her own accord, she should have been forcibly removed from the job. More to the point, she should be forced to use her vast wealth to contribute to the many victims.
