Is what the team did right? No. If you think that 18-22 year old guys at any school don't act like this, you are crazy. It is also something that a coach would never know about.
Here we go again - the boys will be boys card, even when the boys are old enough to go overseas and fight for their country or to vote in elections. At what age do you think it is reasonable to expect men to not condone sexually degrading acts as 'fun and games'? After all, these are supposedly some of the nation's best and brightest, right? Supposedly they have worked so hard to get to that point and they work so hard to make the most of the college careers - on the track and in the classroom. Can they be expected to show some of this intelligence and discipline that got them so far when it comes to moderating their personal behavior, or is that asking too much of them? Maybe if they are not capable of acting like adults, they shouldn't be on scholarship at a 'so-called' elite program. Maybe the new coach will be someone who actually has control over this athlete's, and they will become a regular top 10 finisher in XC as they should be with all of the talent they get on the men's side. More training and less playing around with each other's manhoods would be a good start.
I wasn't saying "boys will be boys" I said this is not unique to Georgetown and a lot goes on without the coaches knowing. The kids live at school with each other and see their coaches a couple hours a day. My point is that a coach getting skewered for this is pointless.
