Previously investigated by whom? The university? I can't figure out how you blame ESPN when Boeheim never even went to Bernie Fine and asked him about the allegations. That shows me that he had less than any interest in finding out the truth. At a minimum, Boeheim should have asked Fine about it.
How do you know what Boeheim asked Fine back in 2002 when the University investigated the incident? The fact is, unlike Penn State, Syracuse hired an outside investigator to look into allegations that the local police refused to investigate. That investigation might have been helped by ESPN airing the tape that the alleged victim provided them. ESPN failed in its moral obligation, and a potential predator may have harmed others as a result.
