Brenda Tracy stood in front of Nebraska coach Mike Rileys football team Wednesday afternoon and told them the story of that night nearly 18 years ago when she was gang-raped by four men " two of whom played for Rileys Oregon State team in 1998.

And then Tracy told his current players there was a time she absolutely despised Riley.

I told them, At one point I hated this man more than my rapists, Tracy told a small group of reporters Wednesday evening.

You could literally see the whole room turn and look at Coach Riley. It was intense. I saw them all look. I could feel it. Not too long after that, I started talking about the idea that he didnt have to bring me here. Even under those circumstances, he didnt have to bring me here. This is what accountability looks like. This is what transparency looks like. This is how we get things done, and (they) should be appreciative that they have a coach like this as their mentor, their example of how to deal with something like this.

We talked about how its OK to say sorry. Its OK to be accountable. Its OK to stand up and say, I didnt do something right, or I did something wrong, and move on from there. Sometimes when you wrong another person, all they really want is an apology.
