I think that Ohio State is much better equipped than most large fanbases to be on the right side of life.
With all due respect, I'm sure the lovely people of Happy Valley and Steubenville felt the same way. It's easy to be complacent about the hidden sociopathy that lies dormant in a large fanbase, only to tear forth with a fury when an event occurs that requires fans to choose between their moral/ethical values and their favorite football team.
Time will tell on our end, of course. When you mix hormone-crazed young men with an atmosphere of privilege and entitlement, its not a matter of if, but when. It can happen anywhere, and in time it will happen anywhere.
