Unsportsmanlike Conduct on the Rise

So after I wined about one of my favorite team’s players being a jerk for unsportsmanlike conduct, it seems that another favorite Notre Dame couldn’t resist either. Oh well, at least he was flagged for it. What’s happening to college sports?

This guy’s got an interesting idea:

Beamer said he was pleased with the way his unique discipline system for personal fouls and unsportsmanlike conduct penalties worked this season.He fined offending players $100 from their bowl stipend this season for every personal foul or unsportsmanlike conduct penalty committed.

The players responsible for the penalties also had to run 1,500 yards (100 yards for every yard of the penalty) at 6 a.m. on the Wednesday after the game.Tech committed 19 personal fouls in 12 games, including two offsetting and one that was declined. In the last six games, the Hokies committed just seven of those penalties.

After Beamer said he planned to bring back his discipline system next season, center Danny McGrath piped up with his opinion on the system. It should be noted McGrath is a senior and didn’t commit any personal fouls or unsportsmanlike conduct penalties this season.

“I think we need to talk to our union representative,” McGrath said.

“You’re talking to him,” Beamer responded.
