The Minnesota Golden Gophers have taken a bold step and decided to boycott all football activities in the wake of suspensions handed to teammates. There has been no official reason given for the suspensions, but the father of one of the suspended players says it stems from a Title IX investigation by the university into an alleged sexual assault. This investigation is separate from a police investigation of the same incident. The players in question were not charged in the incident, but the university decided to suspend 10 players. The players not suspended are threatening to sit out its upcoming bowl game if the matter is not resolved to their liking.
This is an issue with no clear resolution on the horizon. For the sake of the university, the faculty needs to meet with its student-athletes.
