Decades-Old Incident Blurs Peyton Manning's Legacy

Quarterback Peyton Manning helped the Denver Broncos win the Super Bowl earlier this month. It was his second championship but the good feelings after what might have been his last game have faded after a 20-year-old college training room incident resurfaced.

Manning has said he dropped his pants in the University of Tennessee training room to “moon” another male athlete, but a female trainer got in the way. That’s not the way she tells the story and there’s a new lawsuit that claims the school created a “hostile sexual environment” for women.

Here & Now’s sports analyst Mike Pesca joins host Robin Young to sort out the story.
