Rena The Muse of Nebraska
Posted on August 5, 2021 by Royal Rosamond Press
“Understand, it took me no more than twenty minutes of searching to locate your name and to make contact with you. Surely Rena would have no trouble doing the same, if it was her desire.”
After posting on Nebraska Bohemians I knew I was being EXAMINED, and ruled…
“NOT ONE OF US!”
This is the REAL REASON Rena did not want me to move to Lincoln. She had a lover who was ‘Not one of us’ who she came to California with. Emperor Trump’s gold eagle card – enflames the cult of ‘NOT ONE OF US’ that has ruled the beloved Red States for many years, every since the Treacherous Confederacy – LOST!.
I have called Rena and Belle my Literary Muse, who are dictating all my writing. This is proof. The coming together of the Oregon Ducks and Nebraska Cornhusker with Dangerous Russian Men and Women – mixed with another accusation of gang rape – adds to the drama!
Nebraska’s Mike Riley: Brenda Tracy’s story of rape, effects ‘powerful’
Jun 22, 2016
- ESPN.com news services
Brenda Tracy “left an indelible imprint” Wednesday on the Nebraska football team, coach Mike Riley said, by telling the Cornhuskers how she was gang-raped by Oregon State football players in 1998.
“Brenda has suffered immeasurable pain and has shown the strength and willingness to share her story. Her story today was powerful,” Riley said in a statement.
For her part, Tracy said her hourlong talk with the team and a separate meeting with Riley were rewarding and left her feeling “like a ton of bricks have been lifted off my back.”
“Literally I feel like I might be five sizes smaller in my skin,” she told a small group of reporters, according to USA TODAY Sports.
Riley was the coach at Oregon State when Tracy allegedly was sexually assaulted by four men, including two OSU players, while on a visit to campus. The players were arrested, but she did not press charges.
Riley, who is entering his second season at Nebraska, suspended the two players for one game.
Tracy, 42, said earlier this week of Riley that “I did hate him for many years.”
“But since coming forward, my biggest wish for myself is that I don’t want to be angry anymore,” she said. “I want to have peace, and I want to be happy. I feel like today I am ready to forgive, and I want to find a place of forgiveness with him.”
Riley said in the statement that he met with Tracy “at length” before she spoke to the team.

7/7/2016 update: At some point you know the Ducks are going to have to do the same. It’s inevitable. Meanwhile CNN has the story on Baylor here. Of course it’s not just the athletes – see Lindo et al.:
6/24/2016 update: Riley’s footballers hear from Brenda Tracy, OSU rape survivor, while Helfrich’s team hears from Tom Hart about Egyptian prostitutes on Harleys
A guest blogger forwards the following:
Brenda Tracy met with Mike Riley and the Nebraska football team this week. She’s getting some nice national attention. I looked it up. Lincoln, Nebraska is a 1600 mile trip. Autzen Stadium is about 40 miles away.

Said Riley in a statement released Wednesday night: “As part of our ongoing educational efforts, I invited Brenda Tracy to Lincoln, to share her experiences with the young men in our program. Brenda has suffered immeasurable pain and has shown the strength and willingness to share her story. Her story today was powerful and I know that it left an indelible imprint on our student-athletes, staff and myself.”
Riley also expressed “sincere gratitude” for Tracy’s willingness to come to campus and meet with him.
“This has been an important day for me and for our football program and we must keep the focus on the victims, and on preventing inexcusable acts in the future,” Riley said.
Tracy is the survivor of a sexual assault by two Oregon State football players and two others, 16 years ago. She went public after newspapers broke the story of the alleged UO basketball player gang rape of Jane Doe. John Canzano published Ms Tracy’s horrible and courageous story in the Oregonian, here, Kurt Krueger, the chair of the UO Senate’s Intercollegiate Athletics Committee, invited her to speak at UO. Here is her story, which must be heard:
Meanwhile, here’s some information on how the Ducks have been handling sexual assault prevention training
6/6/2015 update: Prostitutes from Russian motorcycle-mob strip clubs lead Duck athletes astray?
Before you page down and watch the video of UO Basketball coach Dana Altman do the duck and weave with reporters about alleged gang rape by his basketball players, and check out Tom Hart’s powerpoint presentation telling football players to watch out for Russian prostitutes hired by Egyptian motorcycle gangs, please watch some of the Brenda Tracy video.
8/22/2014 update: Sure enough, this presentation on how football players can avoid getting assaulted, and advertised as “Sexual Assault Awareness” was one of the few things the Duck AD could point to as examples of “Sexual Education” they provide their athletes. Note that the athletic department’s Katie Harbert – who was also the instructor of record for the Ducks athlete-only sham FHS 199 course – began collecting these documents a full month before the rest of the campus learned of the basketball rape allegations:
8/21/2014: Updated below with redactions from Gottfredson’s Sexual Assault Review Panel of the doc showing the “Team Rule” to call Tom Hart’s *personal* phone if in trouble with police.
8/20/2014: At his May 9th press conference a question from a UO student (whom the Ducks had tried to keep out) revealed that Dana Altman was very confused about what sort of sexual assault prevention training his athletes had received:
Now we know a little more. The athletics department is worried that it’s their players – and their coaches, and NCAA eligibility – that might be the victims of sexual assaults from predatory prostitutes that have probably worked on websites controlled by Russian/Egyptian motorcycle gangs. Or at least that seems to be the warning in this bizarre powerpoint from Tom Hart, hired in 2011 as Director of Duck Security and Facebook Monitoring (contract here).
Hart is still on Rob Mullens’s payroll, as “Professional Development Coordinator”:
