Another major university confronted with sexual abuse scandal – Author Buzz Bissinger on what this means for college atheltics

Syracuse University men's assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine has been placed on administrative leave over sexual abuse allegations made by a man in 2005. Police said they had reopened an investigation into allegations of inappropriate touching, which allegedly occurred years before the allegation was made. These accusations come as another major university, Penn State, is facing its own sexual abuse scandal.

Today on American Morning, Newsweek columnist Buzz Bissinger talks about what these two cases reveal about the current state of college athletics. As Bissinger tells Carol Costello, "College sports are a monster – and they have to be contained."
