SO- you are a well paid coach (overpaid) of a prominent Division I-A football team, and one of your former players claims she was raped. This is not a wise response:
Former Colorado kicker Katie Hnida said this week she was sexually assaulted by a teammate in 2000, after her final season at Colorado. Hnida, now a student at the University of New Mexico, said she does not plan to file charges at this time.
Hoffman said she was shocked by the allegation and urged Hnida, 22, to tell police. Barnett told reporters Tuesday he knew of no evidence to back up Hnida’s claim and said she had never told him about a sexual assault.
He also criticized Hnida’s ability as a player: “It was obvious Katie was not very good. She was awful … Katie was not only a girl, she was terrible. OK? There’s no other way to say it.”
Gary Barnett is lucky Osama is still roaming the planet, otherwise he would easily be the most despicable human being on the planet. I was half asleep last night when I heard his remarks, and I almost fell out of bed.

And Atrios and I continue our string of agreeing on one issue a month.
