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

Michigan State Faculty Members Vote No Confidence in Board of Trustees

The MSU Faculty Senate has voted 61 to 4 to issue a statement of no confidence in the Board of Trustees and call for the Trustees to resign.

The vote was called largely in response to the board's decision to name John Engler, a former MI governor, the school's interim president.

The university has come under fire for the way it has handled the sexual abuse claims against Nassar, who has been sentenced to 40-175 years in prison for abusing more than 250 athletes on top of a 60-year sentence for possession of child pornography.

Engler called the report "a sensationalized package of reporting", according to Murphy.

"I only saw a little bit of it, but the part I saw, I agreed with what he said", Izzo said. "We'll see where it goes from there when I get home and get a chance to read it all and get a chance to talk to him".

Tyronn Lue has ideal response to Steve Kerr letting his players coach
Well, how about 52 games? For example, he's identified leadership qualities in Green, whom he used to coach for most of the game. There is a multi-way battle going on for the top few spots in the NBA Draft Lottery and the Suns are simply one entity involved.

Engler's letter says he asked men's basketball coach Tom Izzo and football coach Mark Dantonio, both mentioned in the report, to refrain from comment while the report was being reviewed. He said that request has been "a burden that must be lifted".

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.

Near the end of the letter, Engler addressed an ESPN report that questioned how the basketball and football programs have responded to cases of sexual assault and violence toward women. Izzo said roughly the same, telling reporters: "As I said before, we'll cooperate with any investigation and always have".

"I do know that two of them have declared they're not running for reelection - that's a start, but we really need to have eight board members leave en masse out of love for the university and put eight academic leaders in place to move us going forward", LaDuca said.

"Although it's mostly a symbolic vote, I think it very accurately represents our community at this point", said MSU senior Alondra Alvizo.
