    .....in my high school were a maladjusted group of people.

    I still remember them: coaches, some teachers, local boosters -- just a bunch of weird people who got some kick out of kissing up to the Friday Night Lights heroes.

    I'm sure coverups like this happen in high schools across the country.

      When I was in HS (not in OH) my mother pushed me to associate with the football team crowd. To her they were THE group to get in with.

      I always got a creepy vibe off of them - not just the football guys but the parents and teachers as well.

      I guess it is fortunate for me that I chose to hang with the band nerds instead.  Who knows how things could have gone if Steubenville is the norm.
