Brett Favre Would be Proud of the Bethany College Golf Team
See that picture above? That photo costs the entire men's golf team at Bethany College three tournaments. Why? Because it's a Lutheran school, and apparently, apparently, the coach/athletic director wasn't a big fan of getting a picture of his team sporting the birthday suit in his inbox.
The story is, the Bethany team, called the Fighting Swedes (?), decided to take the above photo as an unofficial team photograph, following the actions of the 2004 UCLA team for Golf Digest. The problem is, doing so and posting on your Facebook page isn't exactly the same as doing so for the biggest golf publication in the land, and when coach Jon Daniels found out about it, the team was suspended for three events.
The worst part about the story? Well, the fact that it's become quite an uproar when it's obvious that a few college kids were just trying to have some fun. This is a group that is very talented, winning 11 of the last 15 Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference titles.
The best part? Well, the captain of the golf team's name. It's ... umm ... how do I put it. Here, I'll just paste his first and last name and you have yourself an appropriate laugh.
Seriously. First name Jack. Last name Hiscock. Every 16-year-old reading this site (Note: a lot!) just laughed in between sips of Red Bull! John Daly's middle name could be Hooters and it still wouldn't beat out this guy.
The team is supposedly appealing the suspension, but for now, the Fighting Swedes and Mr. Hiscock will forever be remembered as the the team that showed a little too much of their game on the first tee.
