College Golf Team Suspended For Partially Nude Photo (Picture)
Sports teams from little Bethany College in Lindsborg, Kansas, are called the Terrible Swedes. It’s a fitting name, given the “scandal” that has “rocked” the men’s golf team in recent days.
The small liberal arts college has suspended it’s entire men’s golf team for three tournaments after this photo started making the rounds:
Is this photo dumb? Sure. But is it offensive? Not really, no. I mean, you don’t see any wangs, here—just golf club covers of various sizes and levels of fuzziness. To be quite honest with you, the most unpleasant aspect of the whole photo, to me, is the way the fourth guy from the left really seems to be giving it to his club cover. But at the end of the day, it’s just a bunch of guys having fun together, naked. You know, typical college stuff.
Unfortunately, stuffy old golf coach Jon Daniels disagrees. He says he “talked to the boys about upholding the [non-existent] reputation of the Lutheran college and the golf team.” From this I am going to go ahead and assume the school’s disapproval of the photo has something to do with it’s religious affiliation. Shocking.
Anyway, team captain Jack Hiscock says the boys plan to appeal the suspension.
Yeah, you heard me right. The captain of the golf team that got suspended is named Jack Hiscock.
