Steubenville Football & Rape Culture

When at least two football players from Steubenville, OH were found to have raped a teenage girl last August, the team's coaches vehemently denied their players had done anything wrong, blaming the victim. Is it possible that these boys didn't question what they were doing because of the attitudes of their role models in school and society as a whole? Furthermore, can pre-emptively teaching them not to be creepy also teach them not to commit rape?
