CRN you have to do what you have to do! I think all Bruins commend your actions. Remove bad seeds. They can go to other schools that don't mind those things or various types of infractions that they could be subject to sanctions...

one stupid mistake doesn't make a "bad seed"

I agree though that Coach did the right thing.

From what I understand, they are only suspended for the fall quarter, and will have the opportunity to enroll in the winter quarter. He didn't release them from their scholarship. Essentially, they are being given a redshirt year, but they aren't losing eligibility. The only real downside for them is that they don't get the benefit of practicing with the team.

they have to show they mean business by staying out of trouble, and do their job in the classroom.

Last year he suspended Stan Hasiak almost for the whole year. Hasiak is a 6'8" 350 lb.tackle that we could have really used on the OLine but Hasiak had anger issues fighting in practice with his teammates, and RN did not put up with it, he sent him home, and told him when he's ready to be a Bruin with a different attitude he would welcome him back...so far so good.

I was at a practice one time last year when a brawl broke out with Hasiak taking on three DLinemen, RN stopped the practice and the team was punished by doing sprints the last 30 minutes of sprints and other crap....while Hasiak rolled back and forth for an hour across the field, the guys was throwing up.
