Any thoughts on this story? Seems pretty groundbreaking and definitely affect the Tufts season.

Twenty-seven Tufts men's lacrosse players will be suspended for two games of the upcoming season after an incident at a home women's volleyball game last semester, the Tufts Daily student newspaper has reported.

Tufts players were found guilty of "unacceptable behavior," school officials told the Daily. An investigation was launched after a Tufts student alleged the athletes harassed Smith volleyball players with sexist and racist insults.

Coach Daly did an admirable thing and put winning games secondary to the importance of student-athletes representing their team and institution in a positive light. Don't get me wrong, I am all for heckling. I believe it is the duty of the home crowd to make the visiting team "uncomfortable." But the line needs to be clearly drawn at racism and sexism.
