The Syracuse scandal and Bernie Fine

Former Syracuse assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine was fired amid an investigation into allegations of child molestation. So far, head coach Jim Boeheim has survived the scandal, despite initially speaking out against Fine's accusers. He's since apologized. Meanwhile, Syracuse has become the second major college to be rocked by a child sex abuse scandal this fall.
