I kept believing that our situation wasn't really that similar to PSU. That this was hopefully going to be a situation where at worst, this was a guy living in "the closet" who was having an affair with a former assistant. Thats no longer a world I can realistically live in. I have loved Syracuse since I went there. However the idea that someone could have been molested so that the basketball team I love wasn't embarrassed is horrifying to think about. I obviously can't speak for any other SU alumni but myself, but as much as I like SU, I would never want this covered up just so I can enjoy a bball season. There isn't any proof this occurred, but as quick as this story is evolving, who knows if its true or not. Regardless of whether the university did or did not cover anything up, if a crime did occur the victims are the people who were abused.
On one hand I really don't know what to say. I'm angry at anyone involved in keeping the tapes quiet. This is my Matt Millen moment. I probably shouldn't even post anything for 24-48 hours so cooler heads can prevail, but I also want to vent. In light of the recent stories I can't blame Syracuse for taking the action they did today. Its also time to stop setting a chair aside until we know the results of the investigation.
