“As traumatic as it is to relive Dr. Strauss’ abuse this week, I am also traumatized by the dismissive way that OSU continues to treat me and other survivors to this day,” Steve Snyder-Hill, former OSU graduate and survivor, said in a statement to HuffPost.

“This report still doesn’t tell us how many students Dr. Strauss abused, exactly who in the Athletic Department and the broader administration knew about his abuse, or what OSU is doing to make sure this can never happen again,” he continued. “The school likes to say that this is ‘a different OSU’ but, until it makes clear and accepts responsibility for the full scope of what happened and how, there is no reason to believe that.”

Meanwhile, Ohio State president Michael Drake apologized on behalf of the university to the victims.

Adele Kimmel, an attorney who represents 60 of the nearly 200 public victims, told reporters during a Tuesday call that the report reflects just how badly the university failed its students.

“Scores of Ohio State employees knew about Strauss’ abuse and did nothing to stop it,” she said. “Parents have come to expect that if a sexual predator like Strauss moved in next door to their home, authorities would alert them to that situation. In stark contrast, Ohio State essentially rolled out the welcome mat for Strauss and gave him a platform to advertise for his next victims when the university knew he was sexually abusing young men.”

The report, conducted by the law firm Perkins Coie, found that Strauss sexually abused at least 177 students over the course of his two-decade career at Ohio State. The investigation also concluded that university employees were aware of complaints and rumors about Strauss’ conduct as early as 1979 but did not take action.

Jim Jordan (R- Ohio ) denied the most recent accusation that he ignored sexual abuse when he was an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University nearly three decades ago. Ohio State ' Rolled Out The Welcome Mat ' For Accused Sexual Predator Dr . Richard Strauss .

“This is one of the biggest sex abuse scandals in U.S. history, yet the report only scratches the surface,” attorney Ilann Maazel said in a statement to HuffPost.

“How many hundreds or thousands of OSU students did Dr. Strauss abuse? What are the names of all the OSU coaches, trainers and administrators who knew about the abuse and did nothing? What will OSU do to make these survivors whole?” Maazel continued. “It’s time for a full reckoning at this university.”

When asked if he believes if Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) knew of the abuse while he was an assistant wrestling coach at the school, McDaniel answered definitively.

“I was on the tennis team so we practiced in a different location [than the wrestling team],” said McDaniel, a former tennis player who attended OSU in the early 1980s. “I can’t really speak to his exact whereabouts or what he knew but he knew.”

Snyder-Hill added that he believes every administrator who was at the university at the time was “somewhat culpable” for Strauss’ abuse.

Last July, several former wrestlers accused Jordan of ignoring the sexual abuse accusations against Strauss when Jordan was the assistant wrestling coach from the mid-1980s to early 1990s.
