Huffpost:

A former captain of the Ohio State University wrestling team told members of the Ohio House Civil Justice Committee on Tuesday that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) was not only aware of allegations of sexual abuse that took place at the university in the 1980s and 1990s, but that the congressman begged others to cover up his involvement. 

Jordan, who worked as an assistant coach for the wrestling team from 1987 to 1995, has consistently denied allegations that he knew of any abuse taking place. 

But the former wrestling team captain, Adam DiSabato, told state lawmakers that was untrue. He is one of the former OSU wrestlers who has filed a lawsuit against the institution for ignoring allegations of sexual abuse at the hands of university doctor Richard Strauss, who allegedly abused nearly 1,500 athletes. (Strauss died by suicide in 2005.)

Nearly 350 men are currently suing OSU, and many others are unable to do so because of the statute of limitations. Adam DiSabato was testifying at a hearing for a bill that would waive the statute of limitations for the OSU victims and allow them to sue the university. 

Adam DiSabato’s brother, Michael, was allegedly a victim of Strauss’s abuse and has accused Jordan of being aware of what took place.

“I considered Jim Jordan a friend,” Michael DiSabato told NBC in 2018. “But at the end of the day, he is absolutely lying if he says he doesn’t know what was going on.”

Two Ohio State football players have been arrested on charges of rape and kidnapping.  It's the sports culture there.

It's the sports culture everywhere, including IU where a lot of fans were willing to tolerate the abuses of athletes and coaches because they delivered wins.

You hire people without character to play for your team and this is what you get. I was thinking of Bob Knight, after seeing him at that "homecoming" to IU last weekend and realizing he's not got long to live, that whatever he was, he never cheated, and his kids seldom got into trouble.

For any job, you have to hire people with integrity.
