Engler: ESPN's MSU report 'a sensationalized package'


Interim President John Engler chose to fire Dr. Strampel in his first major personnel action since temporarily taking the helm at MSU.

In a statement released prior to the appointment, Faculty Senate said the board ignored student and faculty recommendations to choose a candidate with "significant experience devising and implementing programs to mitigate sexual harassment and sexual abuse", ideally a woman with extensive experience in academic leadership.

"I am not sure if the at-large members of the Steering Committee realize how insensitive and tone-deaf this motion makes us appear", Vickery said. "I made a commitment to work with them going forward".

"I viewed with great concern a recent ESPN report that gathered considerable national attention in no small part because it showed a promotional graphic of our head football and men's basketball coaches (Mark Dantonio and Tom Izzo) with Larry Nassar", Engler said.

Engler called the report "a sensationalized package of reporting", according to Murphy. He also noted that Dantonio and Izzo have been asked to "refrain from comment" while the school is in the reviewing process. He said that request has been "a burden that must be lifted".

"I only saw a little bit of it, but the part I saw, I agreed with what he said", Izzo said.

A flawless blend of Lent fasting and Valentine's Day
For the second year, the Episcopal Churches in the Mid-Hudson Valley will be bringing Ash Wednesday to the people. Ashes will also be distributed during a Mass at 9 a.m., a prayer service at 4:30 p.m., and a Mass at 6 p.m.

The vote was in reaction to the Board's handling of the fallout from the Larry Nassar scandal and the resignation of President Lou Anna Simon.

"I think rather than act quickly and in the heat of the moment, I hope we listen for some time and reflect on what can be done to fix the problem", he said.

Dantonio denied allegations of mishandling any sexual assault cases in a previously unscheduled news conference held hours after the Outside the Lines report was published.
