07:05 AM ET 11.28 | His name is Matt Michael, and he used to be a reporter for The Syracuse Post-Standard newspaper, and he started working in the fall of 2002 on a story about a former Syracuse University ball boy accusing a Syracuse assistant coach, Bernie Fine, of molesting him as far back as 1984. But before Michael ever got to Syracuse, before he covered Syracuse basketball himself, before he finally moved over to news, he was a student sportswriter at Penn State. Michael is Penn State '85. He covered football for the college paper there, which means he covered Jerry Sandusky. And when he found out about Sandusky the way the world did over this past month, Michael thought right away about the story he and another reporter worked on for months once, out of the fall of '02 and into the spring of '03, a long 140-inch story that his paper finally elected not to publish.
