Billy, tell me how reporting the incident in the showers in 2001 would have negatively affected the football program to the extent that 4 previously honorable, professional men would have been afraid to face it.
I agree they should have reported any impropriety to Child Welfare, and let them do their thing.
But I don't agree that the impact on the FB program at that point would have been serious enough to turn them all 'evil'.
It was the first incident they came across, as the previous one in '98 was not initiated by PSU, but by the DA and local police.
They would have faced scrutiny, but would eventually have been respected for turning him in.
