Then, while the rest of us ignored this childishness over the holidays, Duke played Virginia Tech and lost.
And suddenly, wise old Coach K realized that young Grayson surely had learned his lesson, and put him right back out on the floor.
Length of the indefinite suspension turned out to be definitely one game.
It would be good to point out that K is a West Point graduate, is the coach of the USA Olympic team, and is supposed to be a charitable man.
He's going out for back surgery anyway, so while he's home on the mend, I recommend that he reads this article from American Thinker. It details the events of November 1963, when Joe Namath, star quarterback for the U of Alabama, admitted to taking a few sips of beer at a diner. Word of this got back to his coach, the legendary Bear Bryant.
There was an ironclad rule on the Alabama football team: no alcohol during the season. Not "no alcohol, but a few sips of beer would be ok if you're the star of the team." None. Nada, zilch.
So the Bear called Namath into his office and said Joe Willie could keep on playing, but then, he (Bryant) would have to resign, because it would violate his principles to back down on a well-understood rule. Namath accepted his punishment, missed a final game against Miami, and the Sugar Bowl, and then came back the next fall, going on to great fame and acclaim, a better man for having learned his lesson.
