    Does Sandusky top that list, or does Nassar top that list?

    Dave Bliss tried covering up a fucking murder. That has to win.

    Dunno, man. Nassar had at least, what, 365 victims? He devastated so many girls and their families.

    Bliss and the murder. Got to be

    I know other cases had greater negative impact, but the coach actively covered up a murder.

    I don't find those to be scandalous at all.

    Only scandalous if you believe in the NCAA's virtue of amateurism crap.

    Not quite up there with the worst, but the Albert Means case, which started in the late 90s and went through the early 2000s was quite the scandal.

    You had coaches demanding payments for themselves in order for Means to visit and eventually play for schools. I don't recall Means ever saying he was paid as well. He got screwed over by the very people who should have been looking out for him.
