Tom Izzo agrees with John Engler that ESPN report is 'sensationalized'

Mississippi State President Mark E. Keenum speaks during the fall 2018 general faculty meeting at MSU

The Michigan State University Faculty Senate passed a vote of no confidence in the schools' Board of Trustees today (Tues.) Michigan Public Radio's Cheyna Roth reports. The Board appointed former Michigan Governor John Engler as Interim President.

He calls the report "sensationalized" for using Nassar's photo alongside basketball coach Tom Izzo and football coach Mark Dantonio. he says the University is looking into the allegations made in the report and says the coaches have been asked not to comment.

"That has been a burden that must be lifted", Engler said in his letter.

Engler also said in his statement that he hopes that "MSU can soon respond in full and affirm the integrity and probity that has been the hallmark of these two respected coaches".

The report was published on January 26, just hours after athletic director Mark Hollis announced he was stepping down. Simon resigned last month amid heavy criticism that she and the university did not properly handle the Nassar case while the disgraced doctor abused patients on campus, nor during the aftermath of his crimes since he was sacked in September 2016.

Meghan Markle Had Her First Kate Middleton Twinning Moment
The couple was there to visit the Band of the Royal Marines when they met Cruachan, the mascot of the Royal Regiment of Scotland. She said: "We are expecting to see Meghan and Harry , we are so excited".

Michigan State is facing many lawsuits from victims, and the response was legally crafted. "Since that comes, that's pretty common, so I said it before, there will be a time that I'll talk but I thought what he said looked really good to me as a start".

"Every incident reported in that article was documented by either police or the Michigan State Title IX office".

Dantonio, for his part, has denied that the ESPN report contained any new information, stating that he has always worked with the proper authorities when dealing with cases of sexual assault. "The values that we teach to everyone in this program will be enforced".

Asked respond to Engler's comments, ESPN said - in an email sent to 97.1 The Ticket - "We stand by our reporting". Izzo, on the other hand, has not issued any denials and has chosen not to answer any direct questions related to the report.
