It seems to me that in this case there are facts that can be interpreted differently. The police new about the assault, but the college and police couldn't do anything because since the victim wouldn't press charges, there was no official crime. The two players were removed from the squad for violating rules but no other action could be officially taken until the victim was an official victim!
So I am not sure there really is a coverup, just a twist that delayed the legal process until she came forward.
At what point does Corporal Kirk start to take some responsibility? He has been coach for 9 (?) seasons and this is the second time there have been major troubles with the law for many of his players. Didn't the former CU coach ultimately loose his job due to lack of institutional control?
