Yahoo: College golf team suspended for unofficial, racy team photo [bonus - writer pranked?]


Recommended Posts

Okay, wait, the team captain's name is WHAT?


The Bethany College men's golf team took a page out of Golf Digest's spread of the 2004 UCLA team and posed in the buff for an unofficial team photo (above), with just golf clubs covering their man parts, and it didn't sit well with the team's coach, who also happens to be the religious school's athletic director.

Jon Daniels suspended every player on the Fighting Swedes for three tournaments because of the photo he called, "a case of young people who just don't think beyond the moment and don't realize who they're hurting."

"Until someone sat them down and explained that they did something wrong, they didn't have any idea," Daniels said. "But I think they understand now."

Daniels first caught sight of the photo in his inbox, and immediately went to the team that has won 11 of the last 15 Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference titles and told them they'd all be sidelined for the next three events because of their decision to shoot this picture.

And how did the photo get leaked in the first place? Facebook, of all places, by one of the players in the picture.

Team captain Jack His**** told KAKE news that the team is appealing the suspension, and mentioned that the photos were just meant to be fun.

a little bit more detail, plus a censored copy of the photo, at the link

seems like an overreaction to me, though I understand things are different at a religious school. But come on. They didn't realize who they were hurting? Please, enlighten us on who these guys hurt with that photo...
