Following an allegation by a former player that she was raped while she was on the team, Gary Barnett, the head football coach at Colorado, had this to say: ''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.'' He is being "punished" by being placed on paid administrative leave. Now I'm not going to claim that CU ought to be run like ACU (i.e., as a Christian university), but shouldn't a coach who responds to a player's allegation of rape by talking about her inadequate athletic performance be FIRED?
