College Coach Rejects All Players From Colorado
Here's a story that is surely going to get you fired up and not in a good way... A baseball coach at a Texas college, Wesleyan University, sent an email to a possible recruit that was located in the state of Colorado telling point blank that he would not be chosen because of where he lived.
The coach, named Mike Jeffcoat, sent the email stating the reason for the rejection was because of drug use. The email was sent to someone named Gavin reading:
"Thanks for the interest in our program. Unfortunately, we are not recruiting players from the state of Colorado. In the past, players have had trouble passing our drug test. We have made a decision to not take a chance on Student-athletes from your state. You can thank your liberal politicians. Best of Luck wherever you decide to play."
First of all, it was not the politicians that legalized marijuana, it was the residents of the state of Colorado. Second, how nice of you to make a general broad statement that everyone in our state decides to use cannabis.
Since the email was posted yesterday, it has gone viral. Wesleyan University has now fired Jeffcoat after sending the email according to CBS News.
