This news comes after a former student-athlete, Adam Disabato, who was a wrestling captain during his time at Ohio State in the late 80s and early 90s, accused Congressman Jim Jordan of covering up widespread sexual abuse within the program.

SI Legal Analyst Michael McCann joined Robin Asselta to break down the implications of this news on Jordan and possibly Ohio State University.
