Just awful.

Ohio State said Friday that an investigation had confirmed — in voluminous details gleaned from hundreds of interviews — that a team doctor had sexually abused at least 177 men, including many varsity athletes, while working for the university in the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s.

The university also revealed that dozens of Ohio State officials, including more than 50 athletic department staff members, were aware of the doctor’s actions during his nearly two-decade tenure yet did not act to stop them.

It's just mind numbing that something of this magnitude could have gone on for so long and then take another 20 plus years to come to light when you consider not only the number of victims, but also the number of AD staff who reportedly were aware.

WTF is wrong with that conference? JFC. And all the willing Paternos too. WTF.

You're a department staff person. You know that the doctor is abusing your students. And you let it continue? WTF??? Like it is this hard to find a doctor from somewhere else who maybe doesn't abuse his patients?

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me 176 times, maybe he won't do it again??? WTF?
