Idiot College Student Expelled After Taunting Hoops Player

Videos by OutKick

A member of the Washington & Jefferson (Pa.) college football team has been expelled for particularly distasteful unsportsmanlike conduct at a women’s basketball game.

During Saturday’s lady hoops game between Westminster (Pa.) and hosting W&J, a football player representing the home team who was seated in the student section took taunting to a new low.

In an attempt to harass a talented Westminster player, the student held a sign up that simply read, “10-14-13,” the date the Westminster player’s father passed away.

Being that W&J’s home arena seats only about 2,000 fans and rarely hosts more than half that, the sign was hard to miss.

After members of the Washington & Jefferson administration noticed the cruel sign, they immediately removed the student from the game. By Sunday, they had expelled him from school.

Shortly after the game was completed, W&J’s football coach Mike Sirianni issued a statement condemning the tasteless act and apologizing on behalf of the football team:

“I offer my sincere apologies to (the Westminster player and her family), Westminster Women’s Basketball, and the entire Westminster community. The individual that was responsible for this unforgivable act, unimaginable act has been removed from the W&J football team…I am embarrassed and appalled, but mostly my heart aches for (the Westminster player) and her family. These actions are inhumane.”

In response, Westminster College stated, “[W]e do not condone disrespectful or hurtful actions targeted at players. We appreciate W&J’s swift response and decisive action in this case.”

  1. I had to do a doubletake of the pic because I initially thought the White kid behind him was holding the sign. It almost feels like the kid thought his black privilege was going to allow him to get away with this. Since Obama, then during the BLM riots of 2020 and with today’s DA’s, they’ve emboldened blacks. This kid probably thought he would, at worst, get a slap on the wrist.

  2. Sadly, this sort of ‘taunting’ isn’t new. I seem to recall that Arizona State students chanted “Where’s your Dad Steve” and “PLO” at Steve Kerr in the late 80s. (Kerr’s dad was a professor in Beirut who was kidnapped and murdered 1984 when Steve was a freshman).
