I find the logic impeccable:[He] had been told of an allegation that Sandusky, a former top assistant to the longtime football coach Joe Paterno, had sexually abused a young boy. It was decided that they would approach Sandusky directly, rather than going to outside authorities. Spanier deemed this a “humane and a reasonable way to proceed,” with one caveat: “The only downside for us is if the message isn’t ‘heard’ and acted upon, and we then become vulnerable for not having reported it.”
It is now known that Sandusky continued to sexually abuse young boys for years after.
They were seriously delusional to think that Sandusky would quit being a pedophile just because they asked him to. And Syracuse's handling of Bernie Fine shows that they could have all survived this scandal if they had acted more responsibly, despite the fact that Jim Boeheim had his head buried in the sand IMO.
