With his fourth accuser recanting, his third accuser debunked, his second accuser conspicuously low-key and the federal investigation seemingly quiet, it's time to ponder whether Bernie Fine, the media-lynched longtime Syracuse basketball assistant, is a victim of homophobia, greed and cowardice. From the outset, the child-molestation allegations leveled against Jim Boeheim...
