Has college sports hit rock bottom? From the AP-
So said a student board that governs club sports at the University of Oregon when it ended a highly ranked team’s season after five players shed their pants and underwear April 11 during sectional play at Oregon State University in Corvallis.
The squad had already been on probation since November for serving alcohol to minors and making way too much noise at a party to end last season, resulting in fines and citations. Now the team, known as EGO (Eugene Gentlemen’s Organization) is crying foul.
“We put on the longest shirts we had,” pleaded player Kevin Minderhout. “We have some jerseys that are pretty long.”
Minderhout said the team feels “the decision to end the team season was pretty heavy.”
Ultimate Frisbee, which is akin to flag football and is popular as a club sport at numerous universities and high schools, has rules but no referees. Players are responsible for their own foul calls and are to resolve their own disputes.
So far as flaps go in college sports, I think the above article covers it all.
