    Re: Syracuse assistant coach being investigated on molestation...

    Say it isn't so. After reading the first 3 words of this thread before going into The Tavern, I was really hoping it was going to be something other than this. A firing, bad recruiting, etc. Anything but this. Sadly, my worst thoughts came true.

    I really, really hope that Sandusky-gate isn't going to open up a huge can of worms.

    I'm afraid it already has.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    You've got to be kidding me.

    I just can't fathom what could possibly go wrong in a grown man's brain that would make him want to violate a child. Unreal.

    Depending on who you ask, it isn't that something "went wrong" it is that they were "born with that thing already wrong".

    Well, I've heard that said when people wonder why gay people are gay.

    I'm perfectly fine with a man liking a man, that's none of my business. But to prey on a child? There has to be a serious disconnect from reality and basic human decency.

    I think you're going to see more stories like this. Penn State is going to be a cautionary tell and any even remote question is going to be thoroughly investigated. And seeing others coming out is going encourage others to come forward.

    Child molestation is a unique class of vile evil. That said, given the initial stages of this story, it is very possible that the accused is innocent in contrast to the Sandusky situation where there is enough evidence to warrant a trial and surmise his defense will be fighting an uphill battle.

    True. And on the other side of the coin I hope we do not have false accusations coming out of the woodwork by people compelled by $$$ and the get my name in the news thing. We all know how that can work... make false accusation, get $10k per interview (Inside Edition, etc), get attention and become "known". And also ruin good people. Becomes my word against yours and the false accuser never gets in trouble.

    ps - I am not defending pedophiles.

    No question. We see a lot more reporting of this stuff than we used to and that's a good thing.

    As to whether Boeheim is in trouble, I wouldn't be sleeping well these days if I were him

    I guess Boeheim came out last night and said the whole thing is a lie.

    I saw the two guys on ESPN this morning. They seemed genuine. I honestly can't think of one reason why they would lie about this. They looked miserable and embarrassed talking about it.

    And why did Boeheim come out and say it's a lie? He doesn't know that. Why is he saying anything at this point?

    I don't understand Boeheim commenting either. I've got a bad feeling this one is true also, hope not. If these two are true I'll have a hard time believing there are only two.
