And the hits just keep on coming.
Sources within the Syracuse Athletic Department have told CampusBasement that in addition to sexually abusing children, sleeping with coaches’ wives, and blatantly ignoring internal drug testing policy, employees of and players on the SU basketball team may have also kidnapped and murdered Charles Lindbergh’s infant son in 1932.
“You know, these guys need to make some extra cash to survive,” the source said on condition of anonymity, “So they put together a plan to travel back in time and break into Lindbergh’s house and hold his kid for ransom.”
Bruno Hauptmann, a German immigrant, was convicted of the grisly crime in 1933. However, much controversy has since surrounded the trial and verdict, and this new revelation will only add fuel to the fire.
But it doesn’t end there. Reports have surfaced that the 30-1 men’s basketball team were also involved in Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi Scheme, the Quiz Show scandals of the 1950s, and the Watergate Hotel burglary in 1972.
New eyewitness accounts also place several players on the infamous Grassy Knoll at Dealey Plaza in Dallas on November 22nd, 1963.
“At this time, we have no comment,” said Syracuse public relations representative Kevin Quinn, who was showing several days’ beard growth and haggard, bloodshot eyes.
As of press time, an additional source reports that Scoop Jardine may have assisted the Rosenbergs in passing nuclear secrets to the Soviet Union during the Cold War–however this account was dismissed as outrageous because it is common knowledge that Scoop Jardine never passes anything ever.
