UGA Sets Behavior Standards for Basketball Team, Angers Liberals

Apparently some people are upset with the University of Georgia (UGA) basketball team coaches for setting standards of behavior for their players. The intrusive, extensive guidelines for life have been called a breach of first and fourth amendment rights. You may think that UGA must have some crazy rules to be getting those kind of accusations. Not so much.

Well, they are crazy rules in one sense. Because everyone should know them. But I don’t really see why anyone is upset at UGA for having or enforcing them. A report written up for CBS Atlanta explains the terrible things UGA is requiring of its basketball players:

. . . “No means no” and “treat women with respect, and “passion marks should not ever be noticed by coaches.” . . . And while some of the more mundane policies at some schools advise students against things such as excessive cell phone use and signing a Twitter agreement with the coach, the University of Georgia policies on personal behavior delve into some bizarre ethical and sexual details:

“You don’t own your girlfriend.”

“Stay out of gray areas, Orgies and gang bangs are inappropriate.”

“Birth control is your responsibility too.”

“Don’t spend all your energy in the bed all night.”

“Hicky’s/passion marks should not ever be noticed by coaches.”

“One. Not two or three girlfriends…”

Why is this bizarre? Seriously. These things should be obvious. UGA is doing its best to promote an environment where basketball players avoid undue drama and scandal, and are able to fulfill their commitments to the team. These are voluntary guidelines. If the players don’t want to agree to them, they can leave the team. This has nothing to do with Constitutional rights. Just say it like this, and you’ll recognize how stupid it is: “The Constitution protects my right to orgies and gangbanging.” No. I don’t think so. “The Constitution protects my right to disrespect women and coerce them into having sex with me.” No again.

I really can’t understand the issue here. Perhaps someone can enlighten me. The only outrage here is that UGA has to state explicitly what should be really obvious to even the least decent member of society. Fifty years ago, can you imagine a coach having to tell his players: “Now, one girlfriend is okay. But two or three is pushing it. And also, you all need to cut back on the orgies and gangbanging while you’re on my team . . .” No.

But that hasn’t kept lawyers and other idiots from criticizing UGA and its policies:

As for the University of Georgia’s guidelines regarding consensual sexual activities, as well as dorm-room inspections, [Howard] Wasserman [a law professor at Florida International University who specializes in sports] called them “patently ridiculous.” The dorm room guideline, for example, asks student-athletes to waive their Fourth Amendment rights concerning unreasonable searches.

“It’s very broad,” Wasserman said. “They can get away with it because the athletes are going to let them get away with it.”

Oh, the horror! If only someone would stand up for their rights!

      • Probably because most of America hasn’t lost it’s moral compass like the politicians! Remember “slick willie?”

        • God’s not dead. He is still watching and WILL judge. I pity “slick willie”. He still believes that he was able to do whatever he wanted to do with no penalty. God has not spoken HIS judgment.

          • I am certainly not God, but I kind of believe that Slick Willie will get a pardon Surely he deserves something after being married to that ugly fat bitch, who tends to swing a different way. Ask Weiner boy why he followed the Slickster’s trail?

  1. Why don’t you quote the regulations that people are actually complaining about??

    “Twitter is only allowed with a signed agreement with Coach Fox and can be disallowed at any time”

    (under dorms) “We’re paying so we’re inspecting. I can enter the dorm at any time”

    • Sounds good to me. If the college is paying for the dorm room, they have all the right in the world to inspect.
      Same as an adult child staying at home with his parents. If the parents have any sense, they will still require the child to OBEY, as in “Honor they father and mother…..”
      It is the fundamental of RESPECT.
      And if these players are pigs, they NEED some curbing.
      Freedom comes with responsibilities.

  2. And people wonder why God is bringing the nation to judgment? When you have to tell people to be moral and ethical, you are in real trouble.
    “They not only do what is wrong. They approve of those who do wrong.” (Paraphrased from Romans.) That is exactly what is happening.
    Take note of those who are criticizing these actions. They ARE wicked people.

  3. Professional Sports Teams need to adopt these policies. No wait a minute, maybe if more College Teams used these standards we wouldn’t have a bunch of misbehaved thugs at the professional level.

  4. Sounds good like the way it used to be. I remember when student and professional athletes had to wear a coat and tie to the locker room!!! These are common sense things. That is one of the problems with this generation. Their parents were told that is its bad to punish a child for doing something wrong. They were told that is it wrong to not let a child do what they want. Now, we have this problem. Wonder what ever happened to spare the rod, spoil the child. I know there are some who were raised that way, but a good part of todays youth were not. Well folks, the “Me Generation” grew up and now they have produced the “I can do what I want Generation”.
