I remember when the Se'Von Pittman sexual assault thing first hit the press (speaking of which, what ever happened there?), and one of the first comments on 11W was "This will be front page on ESPN." People were legitimately more upset about the prospect of Ohio State getting bad press than they were about some girl potentially getting sexually assaulted.
It is totally possible, and appropriate, for Buckeye fans to have been concerned about the bad press in this situation. Doesn't mean they don't care about the girl. Maybe they care about the university. Maybe they care about the other 100 student athletes on the team.
And let's not pretend like nobody here ever made a "Hey NCAA, this whole Penn State thing makes free tattoos seem kinda trivial, eh?" joke.
I got news for ya... the free tattoo scandal WAS trivial... even without the context of alleged rape at FSU or documented child molestation at Penn State. Ask DeVier Posey if his 3 dollars of unearned pay was worth a 5 game suspension.
