Accusations of molestation have been made against Syracuse assistant coach, Bernie Fine (http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/college/molest-allegations-levied-syracuse-assistant-basketball-coach-bernie-fine-article-1.979490).

Here is the meat of the case.

The alleged victim, Bobby Davis, now 39, told “Outside the Lines” that Fine molested him beginning in 1983 shortly before Davis entered the seventh grade. Davis, the team’s ball boy for six years beginning in 1984, said the abuse occurred at Fine’s home, at the Syracuse basketball facilities and on road trips, including at the 1987 Final Four.

This story could wind up blowing over without any more mention than this, or it could blow up. All I know is that there are many of these situations all over,and college athletics obviously are no exception.

“In 2005, Syracuse University was contacted by an adult male who told us that he had reported to the Syracuse City Police that he had been subjected to inappropriate contact by an associate men’s basketball coach. The alleged activity took place in the 1980s and 1990s. We were informed by the complainant that the Syracuse City Police had declined to pursue the matter because the statute of limitations had expired.

It says that they investigated and nobody backed up the accusers story. If this turns out to be a true story, this Bernie Fine is a sick **** just like Sandusky.
