What makes you think this was "obviously" off the record? Those comments -- and the ones on the funding page that was taken down -- really don't paint the family in a good public light here. Throwing the University under the bus by suggesting that they should be running to Mo's defense and ignoring that the alleged victim is ALSO a student, suggesting something improper in the media not publicizing the alleged victim's name (when that is pretty much NEVER done in these kinds of cases, for good reason), demanding money to speak with them instead of just saying no comment, etc. -- that all makes the family look bad and doesn't help public perception of Mo at all. All of the comments on the article about the funding page were extremely negative toward Mo, toward Creighton, and toward the basketball program.
Mo doesn't have a First Amendment right to attend a college basketball game at a venue hosting a Creighton event when he's been barred from campus and suspended from all school and athletic activities. I'm glad the players expressed support for Mo's family afterward last night, but it's completely unreasonable to expect anything else of the school or the athletic department, and it would be foolish of his lawyers to parade him out at a game like that.
