Mark Schwarz



So, as I've been watching this coverage and constantly updating my twitter and following 6 different thread's comment sections I keep seeing and posting things about ESPN's Mark Schwarz. I don't know Mark Schwarz. But even if he is an asshole of some sort, he's probably pretty good at sports journalism to have made it to the mother ship. I hope to God these accusations turn out to be false, but Mark Schwarz sure thinks they are true. He's been on this story for 8 years. And presumably he's found Davis to be credible, for whatever reasons. And now, after 8 years, he got the step-brother, possibly one of the 4 children named by Davis initially who was interviewed by the University in 2003 and refused to confirm the accusations, to corroborate. With corroboration, however dubious we choose to believe it to be, and in the climate of the Sandusky horror, especially given the vague similarities - Long time, iconoclastic head coach, long time assistant, abuse at the home, offices and facilities, travel to exotic game locations - Schwarz finally got his boss's ok to run with this story - and he's going all out. If he's wrong, and once again, I cannot tell you how much I hope he is, it will be a blow to his reputation for sure. Might cost him his job. Even if he's wrong it might cost Bernie his, this is one of those few guilty by accusation crimes after all, guilty or innocent I wouldn't be surprised to see Bernie step down from the program soon.

 

I guess my point is, as inappropriate as the almost gleeful tone of his reporting may be, Schwarz wouldn't be laying himself out there if he thought this was false. And his producers wouldn't have given the go ahead if they didn't believe there was at least a modicum of credibility. I hope if Bernie is exonerated that ESPN does address things somehow, but I doubt they will.
