Franklin, PSU facing federal lawsuit for hazing

Former Penn State football player Isaiah Humphries filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against the university, coach James Franklin and former teammate Damion Barber.
The suit alleges Humphries was subject to hazing brought on by Barber, linebacker Micah Parsons, defensive lineman Yetur Gross-Matos and linebacker Jesse Luketa, and that the coaching staff was aware of the hazing and did not protect Humphries.
The allegations include instances of the players named collectively orchestrating, directing and facilitating a campaign to harass and haze underclassmen on the Penn State football team. The hazing alleged in the suit includes the participants stating they intended to make the underclassmen "their bitch because this is a prison."
The participants allegedly referenced former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky -- who is serving a 30- to 60-year prison term for sexually abusing children -- by exclaiming, "I am going to Sandusky you."
The actions included wrestling underclassmen to the ground while maintaining restraint, simulating a "humping" action; wrestling underclassmen to the ground while another participant placed his genitals on the face of underclassmen; and even instances of the participants placing their genitals on the buttocks of the alleged victims, stroking their genitalia.
