Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 is a federal law that states: "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."
So if the assault occurred because the victim was female, then it could be considered being "denied" or "discriminated" against due to her being a female. I guess Brooks could say that he treats everyone regardless of gender like a punching bag and then it is not a Title IX case.
Also wanted to share a message from our new OSU beat writer, Frank Bonner...
The high-level intensity of the Oklahoma State beat is coming up fast, and I can already tell that Tulsa World readers are going to keep this beat exciting.
In just two weeks, I’ve received several emails, tweets and a couple of direct Twitter messages from Oklahoma State fans, alums and even other media members about how enjoyable this experience is going to be.
Thanks to all of those who have reached out and helped start making this place feel like home.
I’m asking all OSU fans to reach back into your memory bank and rank your top three favorite OSU football moments that you remember.
If I can get a large enough sample size, I’ll put together a story that ranks the OSU fans favorite football moments based on your submissions. This will be a fun way for me to listen to your thoughts and get to know you all a little better.
Not sure who else to pick, probably Sterns, but I thought it was funny Murray is the preseason DPOY. He's the best player on one of the worst defenses. Everyone will say he makes a lot of tackles, which he does, but again he wouldn't have to make so many if the guys around him were better.
