Did you read the update, too?Thoughts?
I disagree with it to one extent. I have no problem with him suspending the whole team if the whole team was taking part in the misdeeds, but I doubt all 80 were. Lots of people commenting kept dropping the "no I in team" line, but I think its being mis-used. To me, that means no one is above the team. Team comes first. That does not mean that if Bo is being disrespectful to teachers or bullying someone, that I should be punished the same as if I did. These folks commenting feel like everyone on the team should be accountable for everyone else's behavior. If I'm the kicker on the team, what in the hell am I gonna do to keep the offensive line IN LINE?
It sounds like this wasn't just a few instances, but a culture of entitlement surrounding the members of the team. High school sports aren't supposed to focus on helping a couple kids become professional athletes. They are about teaching teenagers the skills and values that will stay with them through life and help them become productive members of society.
Sounds like the coach taught all of his players a lesson that will stick with them long after they forget the team's record.
