How a 'clerical error' uncovered a coaching scandal at Texas Tech
by Daniel Libit

"Almost exactly one year ago, I emailed a public records request to Texas Tech University seeking 'all documentary materials related to 2018-2019 student athlete exit interviews.'

On Wednesday, that request materialized in a joint investigation story published in USA TODAY, which discovered myriad allegations of psychological torment wrought by head coach Marlene Stollings; inappropriate touching and sexual harassment by her hand-picked basketball trainer; and a potentially dangerous system of coerced overexertion, involving heart-rate monitors, which one former player described as, 'basically like a torture mechanism.'

What distinguishes this particular story from the ever-growing list of athlete-abuse claims made against college coaches, is how they have been so thoroughly documented by Texas Tech and yet, thus far, to little evident effect. For at least the last two seasons, Stollings has carried forth as head coach, pocketing over $700,000 in annual salary, despite the school maintaining a lengthening paper trail of alarming and widely-shared expressions of misery from numerous players on her team.

And yet, if not for what Texas Tech's in-house lawyers would later describe as a "clerical error," it very well might not have come to light.

... I eventually made a records request for documents from the previous year's exit interviews and encountered an absolute bonanza. ... As it came to pass, Texas Tech attempted to file its denial brief about my request on July 11, 2019 the 15th business day after I had emailed it but accidentally uploaded the wrong document into the public records electronic filing system. The school evidently was not aware of this error for two more months when, on Sept. 9, it received notice from the AG's Office that it had failed to comply with the procedural requirements for an appeal and was therefore required to turn over the documents to me, posthaste.

... What if Texas Tech hadn't played the public records delay game in the first place? What if they had handed over the documents last summer, and the reporting commenced six months earlier? How much alleged suffering could have been mitigated?

In describing their experiences, some of the athletes expressed guilt for not blowing the whistle earlier and louder.

:"I've seen people on Twitter commit and it makes me sick to my stomach," one player said. "It's like when you boil a frog, and you're like, 'This isn't so bad. Then it gets worse and worse.' And then you're dead."

Did PAC 12 cancel everything for the fall, and does this mean I should cancel my Las Vegas hotel because Oregon won't be playing??

Same question for me, except I haven't made a hotel reservation. Might though.

Here are excerpts from the 11 August 2020 article in the Oregonian
"The Pac-12s decision to postpone competition in all sports until 2021 likely wipes out marquee games for the Ducks men, who were due to host Michigan and Houston, face BYU at the Moda Center, Baylor in Las Vegas, and Iowa State and either Florida or Illinois in Niceville, Fla., and the Ducks women's neutral site games with Baylor and possibly South Carolina.

A trip to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to face Baylor was part of the Pac-12 Coast to Coast Challenge, which was also going to feature the Oregon women against Baylor. ...

All of those games are in flux, at best, or canceled at worst."

Don't remember any details, but I seem to remember reading somewhere that because the Pac 12 cancelled football they will inevitably cancel all sports for the season. This may have been speculation but it makes sense and is a rational conclusion.

Stability of staff is something you see at great programs, except for those that see an advancement from assistant to HC.

TRANSFER OUT
Oklahoma State > Texas Tech

"Bryn Gerlich announced on Social Media tonight she will be transferring from Oklahoma State to Texas Tech to play for her mom, new Lady Raiders Head Coach Krista Gerlich.

Bryn wrote "God and his timing is a real thing!! If these pictures don't say it I will...I'm going to be a Lady Raider. I get to play for the woman who inspired me to pursue my dream in basketball in the gym SHE built while HER jersey is hanging in the rafters. My mom and I are literally getting to live out our dreams together. I mean if that isn't the coolest sentence ever."

Good for her.

Krista Gerlich is known as a players coach. When attending the Dallas Wings games I always got there early and on several occasions the UTA Women's team was finishing practice. Coach Gerlich was always working with her players in a positive manner, the players often got a hug from their Coach, I was impressed. Lexi Gordon knows Gerlich and probably talked to Carr about her. I spoke with the mother of a UTA player at a Wings game and she told me Gerlich's players both respected and liked her, those two things don't always go together.

I hope she is successful at Texas Tech, it would be good for the Big 12.

Good news for the Horns. I'm OK with all that (they still have the $$), so long as Coach Mulkey continues the trend of Baylor beating them every time.
