The Truth Will Come Out: Bernie Fine Didn’t Molest Anyone

Bernie Fine has been at Syracuse University since 1963.

Bernie Fine started his coaching career with Syracuse University in 1963 as the team’s student manager. Fine would go onto graduate in 1967 with B.S. in personnel and industrial relations. Though that wouldn’t be the last of Syracuse as in 1976 when Jim Boeheim became the head coach he hired Fine as of his assistants. Fast forward 35 years later assistant head coach Bernie Fine is being accused of molesting two former ball boys and is on a leave of absence that was handed out by the University.

The two alleged victims are Bobby Davis, who’s now 39, and Mike Lang, now 45. Davis told Outside the Lines that Fine had been molesting him since 1984, on road trips, at Fine’s house, and hotel rooms. As for Lang he told Outside the Lines that Fine had been molesting him since he was in sixth grade.

This is the second incident revolving molestation charge from an NCAA coach within a week’s span, as news broke last week about Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. Sandusky was accused of molesting several young boys. Which is why this really brings to the conclusion as if this allegation is really true or not? Because Davis told police officials in 2003 about the molestation incidents, however they ignored it as there wasn’t enough evidence. Though eight years later, Davis isn’t giving up as he now has a witness; his step brother, Mike Lang.

Despite adding another witness, the story just doesn’t fit, because why would Lang in 2003 come to the police officials and not bring Lang with him as well? Also too, why did they pick now to come out? Because it’s a perfect time; our society is still in shock from the whole Penn State incident and is still trying to recover from it. So now Davis comes out during this time and looks like another victim that was scared like the others and gets away with it too.

Lastly, in the interview with Outside the Lines both Davis and Lang took very long to respond to the simple questions about when it happened and where it happened. They paused several times in efforts to think and used several “ums” showing that they were nervous and pretty much lying. Let’s be honest if you suffered through such a “horrible experience” as they claim that they did, don’t you think that you would remember every single detail, every single second, the time that it happened, and how old you were?

Head coach Jim Boehim isn’t buying it either as he issued a statement stating, “I know this kid, but I never saw him in any rooms or anything,” Boeheim told ESPN. “It is a bunch of a thousand lies that he has told. You don’t think it is a little funny that his cousin (relative) is coming forward? He supplied four names to the University that would corroborate his story. None of them did…there is only one side to this story. He is lying.”
