RE: Georgetown coach Pat Henner resigns (but gets glowing recommendation from AD) - 7 xc meets are cancelled

I highly doubt Henner left on his own accord. This was a public scandal and no matter how lame it may have actually been, someone's head needed to roll if they wanted a chance of recruiting the next few years. That's how "resignations" work in sports, politics, business.

I was in school 10 years ago and this is how we acted. We didn't have a scavenger hunt and videos but it wouldn't be uncommon for me to open my door to find my teammate naked standing there cause he thought it was funny. People in the cafeteria would dare each other to do dumb stuff like once a week. You might go to shower in your dorm and come back to 50 "meatspin" windows had been opened while you were gone. Guys talk about girls they hooked up with, who has a hot mom and joke about dick size. My teammates and my friends not on the team all did stupid stuff like this. We were each other's closest friends and that's what we did. The kids on the team that you weren't close with you wouldn't do this stuff withEvery team I visited on recruiting trips or going to my visit my HS teammates colleges I saw this same doofus behavior. Actually, the track guys were usually more tame than the general population at college.

I wasn't at Georgetown and there may be things that were poor choices but hardly something to need to investigate publicly and cause a great coach to lose his job.

Okay but the things you describe are much different than what is being vaguely hinted at within this thread and in some of the article comments.

I also think Social Media plays a huge part in a lot of this. For instance, we used to throw water balloons at people in the showers. We would fill the balloons with cold milk using a funnel. It was funny as hell and we would wait until the guy was done with his shower and then hit him and he would have to shower again. Everyone was fine with it. Add a camera and Instagram, and all of a sudden it is a pretty big deal.

I am about as old as you, but I think about how Social Media would have changed a lot of the dumb-ass stuff we did and made it pretty mean/bad.

And meatspin was the absolute WORST!!!
