    10 players suspended. 5 for alllegedly s e xually attacking a drunk co-ed. 5 for cheering them on. And now players are protesting and calling for Coyle to resign because he suspended the non participants without what they claim was "due process" .

    No idea who's right or wrong, but Coyle deserves the stress for bailing here.

    I think it's working out nicely for SU with Wildhack.
    Coyle is dead to me

    Couldn't happen to a nice guy. Grass isn't always greener Mr. Coyle.

    However I will give him credit for taking a hard stance if all ten players were there as participants or witnesses. Did they jump the gun? Maybe, but maybe they had enough initial information to suspend. It's not as if they were all kicked out of school yet. But you are right, he deserves the stress.

    He was the guy that was forced out when Syracuse decided to upgrade their A.D. position. Minn may follow that same policy.

    I get it, he left our school unexpectedly. Something nobody was happy about.

    BUT

    By all accounts, he was a great guy. Took the time to individually address personal emails. Just a really decent guy.

    Although it does seem like a little bit of karma, I'd never wish this upon a guy like Coyle. Who by the way, sold his @$$ off to get us Dino Babers.

    And in the end, we got Wildhack. Someone I think will prove to be a long-term home run.

    We landed on our feet, and he gave us Dino. I give him a pass.

    Good for him. I have 2 daughters - enough of this bullsht.

    Clearly you want to avoid a Duke lax situation, but I see nothing wrong in suspending a kid until the facts are out. Not one.

    This isn't innocent until proven guilty. These are kids not playing for a team until they figure it out.
