There being no good way to dance around this, I’m just going to put up the tweets:

Excerpt from the 247 article:

Multiple former or current Vanderbilt students wrote on Twitter on Saturday that they had been raped or sexually assaulted by members of the Commodore football program. Vanderbilt expelled former outside linebacker Charles Wright in February 2019 following appeal for raping former team equipment manager Regan Siems in February 2018, per copies of university Title IX documents provided by Siems to Vandy247. Two more current or former students alleged via Twitter that former player Khari Blasingame and current Commodore Randall Haynie raped or sexually assaulted them.

In the wake of this news, there have been multiple additional allegations on Twitter against both a former player (Khari Blasingame) and a current player (Randall Haynie), which in the case of the former player have been denied by his representatives.

Based on 24/7’s reporting, it appears that while Wright was expelled, he was allowed to remain on campus and participate in football pending his appeal. The full Title IX report is not public, and we’re still waiting to hear anything official from the University, but there are undoubtedly some very serious conversations and decisions on the way in days to come.
