    Looks like MSU has a better lawyer than PSU. Each plaintiff will get less that 1M. It will be 1.28 million minus lawyer's fee (around 30%) = about 899,000.

    As usual, men get paid better than the ladies. Shocked and dismayed.

    Obviously Tom Kline was not representing the Nassar victims.

    Article touches on the financials about halfway through.

    @Shendojoe started the thread but this headline needs the right subject line. Feel free to merge.

    More guilty and still cheaper than PSU's bot. Imagine that.

    Nope, Penn State paid about $250 million and that includes McQ’s lawsuit.

    The per capita payout amount seems like a bargain.

    $250MM+ for 30 plus massive additional costs.

    I bet MSU's insurance also covers quite a good portion of it too.

    My sinking moment was right after Freeh released his fact filled report and insurance immediately came out and said it had no basis.

    Correct me if I am wrong because work is blocking some links, but this isn't an actual settlement with any victims, just a block of money set aside to cover claims?

    MSU did not protect other entities like PSU did TSM. USA gymnastics.TriStar,Karoyolies(sp) still in play.

    Many of these victims reported their abuse directly to MSU. None of JS's victims reported their abuse to PSU. Who should be more liable?

    P.S. Will Delaney take MSU's bowl money. Will Emmert threaten MSU with the death penalty?

    I congratulate the PSU BOT for apparently not participating in the settlement agreement announced earlier today.

    I honestly thought with the way they treat money they’d throw in maybe fifty million dollars (+/-) just for the hell of it.

    MSU had a Groupon obviously.

    Maybe all PSU had to do was enter the promotional code into the box on Shubin's website.

    Really is this stuff any better than showing up for games wearing orange Sandusky prison garb? There isn’t any humor in this sort of abuse. And of all fanbases, PSU fans should know better.

    Their fans/administration actually deserve it. But because I never liked the image and I do consider it tasteless, I removed it from the post.

    However, Rod Ericksen and Karen Peetz are planning to appear at MSU to apologize.

    Ha!
    Bowl money in a gymnastics-related scandal...

    Death penalty for gymnastics...

    Makes about as much sense as other moves by these bozos.

    You need to consider the source of that post. He doesn’t think sexual abuse is real unless it happened elsewhere.

    Jim Delany: "The Big Ten does not have a moral obligation to enter into this case. It does not involve an iconic football coach and there is not much press to garner going overboard on a women's gymnastics trainer."
