Tennessee files motion to have Peyton Manning scandal scrubbed from lawsuit


The Tennessee Volunteers are certainly in a state of disarray right now. On Tuesday, 16 coaches from their athletic department staged a pep rally to address the state of the school’s culture.

On that same day, it seems like the school is trying to clear its name from a scandal that happened nearly 20 years ago. The school has filed a motion to have the lawsuit involving former quarterback Peyton Manning to be dropped.

The lawsuit was brought forward by six former students who alleged that the school “created a… culture that enables sexual assaults by student-athletes, especially football players.” The students alleged that Manning had “gluteus maximus, the rectum, the testicles, and the area in between the testicles” on the face of a female athletic trainer who was examining him for a leg injury.

University lawyers have filed a motion that, if granted, would scrub the lawsuit essentially from existence. The lawyers claimed that the allegations are “immaterial, impertinent, and scandalous” and nothing more than a “a misguided (and unfortunately successful) attempt to generate publicity.”

It’s unlikely that this case will be dropped, but it’s looking more and more like the school wants to clear its name before things get much more worse than they already are.
