First, there was Penn State and Jerry Sandusky. Now there is Syracuse and Bernie Fine. Last night, Syracuse University announced it had fired Fine, assistant basketball coach of more than 30 years. The decision came after a third man came forward, alleging he had been molested by Fine. And like the Penn State scandal, these accusations are years old.
