10 Gopher Football Players Suspended

Post by Goldy Gopher » Fri Dec 16, 2016 8:01 pm

Remember when there used to be frequent banter in the café?

10 Gophers suspended indefinitely for an alleged sexual assault that occurred in September. Some facing expulsion. The entire team is choosing to boycott all football activities until the players are reinstated or administration is more transparent.

Anyone have any thoughts?
The U invented swagger.

Huh. The Cafe.

The U is a flaming pile of steaming dog crap right now. Sports culture at the school, I mean. Is there worse is the country? Name 3. Name 1! Zero accountability. Zero. So sad to see. Who is tough enough to put a stop to it? Might be time to get a female AD in there. Someone who doesn't subscribe to the 'boys will be boys' mantra while the quality of young sports men at this school circles the drain.

Yawn..........another year, another story of a bunch of spoiled prima donna college athletes (more the rule than exception these days) in hot water somewhere.

I'm shocked <sarcasm>

And these stories are just the *public* ones.....

This is a hockey school in a hockey state. It is pretty much a given that when the football team or the basketball team are winning...they are probably going to get busted for something.

After watching today's game against a Maryland team who just got run out off the field by Temple last week......I may be old and sexist but making football players act like high school volleyball players after every stinking play rubs me the wrong way.......make a play, act like you have been there before, etc. Don't quit, don't be afraid to tackle.

Fleck can not be fired soon enough.

Rah Rah Sis Kum Bah on the sidelines all you want. To win a Big Ten football game against anyone but Rutgers or Illinois means playing actual football, not by out cheering or rowing some boat.

Flecks team quit today, that is on him and him alone. Blaming youth and injuries never excuses quitting....especially when you preach culture...luckily for Fleck Nebraska is worse shape.
