Lolo Jones finishes fourth in the 100-meter hurdles at the London 2012 Olympics and all hell breaks loose.

The erstwhile media darling is now the goat, getting thrown under the bus on NBC by teammates Dawn Harper and Kellie Well for "undeserved" media attention.

Then, Jones is seen crying on NBC's The Today Show the next morning.

It's a long fall after the attention that came from appearing in ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue and HBO's Real Sports, of course talking about her virginity.

So should we feel sorry for Lolo Jones, or does she deserve the criticism she's receiving?

Bleacher Report contributors Marc Kohn and Ryan O'Leary are here to debate.
