It’s harsh, but Helfrich gets discipline exactly right in “Snowgate” aftermath

helfrichkvalDown South, players don’t get suspended for rape charges or savage beatings, and Urban Meyer wouldn’t discipline a player for ten minutes if he could find a way to keep it out of the media.

Oregon wants to be different, win the right way and send the right message. After a season where maybe the team got too loose and a little self-involved, showed some chinks in both preparation and discipline, Mark Helfrich sent a message with his handling of the snowball fight/stopping traffic/intimidating-a-former-professor incident that involved some Oregon football players ( photo).
