The Holiday Bowl boycott? Never mind.

Two days after the Gopher football team announced it was boycotting the Holiday Bowl, turning a local dispute into a jaw-dropping national sex scandal, the players have apparently changed their minds. Maybe they read the U's investigation into the events.  Here's what Margaret Soltan at University Diaries has written:

Whatever else you want to say about the incredibly detailed university report on the events of that night, it for sure makes for nauseating reading. It even features a high school student, a person the team’s trying to recruit. One of his possibly future teammates is quoted saying “it was good the recruit was having sex because that might make him more likely to come to the university.”

Shades of the University of Louisville, our first official house-of-prostitution university.
