‘You’re Damn Near as Bad as Jerry Sandusky!’: Stephen A. Smith Rips Baylor Coach for Defending School

Earlier, we posted about Baylor women’s basketball coach Kim Mulkey — who apologized for comments she made Saturday about the lengths to which she suggested fans should go to defend the school against critics.

“If somebody is around you and they ever say ‘I will never send my daughter to Baylor,’ you knock them right in the face,” Mulkey said.

The remarks came just weeks after the filing of a lawsuit alleging that 31 Baylor football players committed of 52 acts of rape from 2011-2014.

Monday on First Take, Stephen A. Smith went off on Mulkey, incredulous that she was taking a position that Smith deemed to be not sufficiently supportive of sexual assault victims.

“I don’t give a damn what you feel,” Smith said. “It doesn’t mean anything to me. Because you should be ashamed for taking the position. The position that I stood right here and addressed was about women being sexually assaulted, raped, and abused on a campus that employs you. You’re a woman and you have a problem with me saying this? Really?!”

Smith added, in reference to Baylor as a whole, “As far as I’m concerned, you’re damn near as bad as Jerry Sandusky!”
