John U. Bacon believes Michigan State University leadership has handled the Nassar settlement process poorly.

John U. Bacon joined Stateside to discuss his thoughts on the $500 million settlement between Michigan State University and 332 survivors of abuse by former sports doctor Larry Nassar.

Bacon very closely covered Penn State University as it worked its way past the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

He came to the studio to compare the two universities, and the different ways they dealt with their unfortunate predicaments.

Listen above to hear how Penn State handled the scandal surrounding Joe Paterno; why the NCAA should not get involved in these types of situations; and why Bacon believes Michigan State leadership has responded so poorly to this crisis in the courts.
