AMHERST, Mass. — Massachusetts suspended football coach Mark Whipple for one game Sunday after he said one of his players had been “raped” while complaining about the officiating Saturday in a loss to Ohio.

Athletic director Ryan Bamford announced the suspension of Whipple without pay for the Minutemen’s home game against South Florida on Saturday, and all team activities leading up to it. Defensive coordinator Ed Pinkham will serve as acting head coach.

The article goes on to state the following:

“On behalf of our department, I deeply apologize for the comments made by head coach Mark Whipple on Saturday after our game at Ohio,” Bamford said in a statement. “His reference to rape was highly inappropriate, insensitive and inexcusable under any circumstance. Coach Whipple’s comments don’t reflect the values of this institution, our athletics department or football program. Mark is disappointed in himself and understands his serious error in judgment.”

  1. Ridiculous. It is a figure of speech used often under all kinds of situations and is not meant to demean the act of rape….some say “screwed” instead of raped IE “I got raped or screwed by that car dealer.” This PC crap is just that crap.
