COLUMBIA — An episode of ESPN "Outside the Lines" that aired Sunday covers how several universities allegedly mishandled sexual assault allegations against athletes. One example, and the focus of a preview video released Thursday, revisits the case of former Missouri football player Derrick Washington.

This is only the latest iteration of a continuing discussion at MU about the culture surrounding sexual assault and whether the university does enough to support students who report it. Previous coverage helps unravel why this conversation garners so much attention.
