With a lot of moving parts, uncertainty, panicking and judgment already getting tossed on this Syracuse story, I wanted to bring on someone in the media who knows this program as well as anyone.
Mike Waters of the Post-Standard is that person. He was well aware of who Bobby Davis was back in 2003, when Davis was interviewed multiple times by the newspaper, when he claimed then as he does now: Bernie Fine sexually molested him time after time in the '80s and into the '90s.
Normally I give timestamps on what gets talked about when, but today's podcast is just over 18 minutes, a fluid conversation, and we run the gamut as best as we can with this. We can't jump to any conclusions right now, and there's a film over this story that still needs a lot of scrubbing. Waters discusses how the paper reported the story originally and why it wasn't run. We examine why Jim Boeheim has already come out so strongly in defense of his friend of nearly 50 years.
We switfly get to the big questiosn regarding this issue right now, as of Friday, Nov. 18, at 11 a.m.
