Football Losses and Bullying

Well, it's good to know that there's a football team in this country that actually lost worse than Geibel's 81-0. A Texas team lost 91-0...and then a parent filed a bullying complaint against the winning coach. Geibel, take heed! You could probably file a complaint against Mark Madden, too!

I really don't see a good case for calling this bullying--and trust me, I'm quite anti-bullying. It was a horrible, horrible loss, sure, and it brings up similar issues addressed with that infamous Geibel game regarding both coaches and the teams, but I wouldn't call a win bullying.

Meanwhile, the rumor mill is churning out that Geibel's last home game of the season was canceled, effectively also canceling senior day, but I have no confirmation or explanation of this beyond some angry alumni tweets. Like, "ashamed to be a Geibel Gator" angry. Now, the canceled game certainly does suck if it's true and Geibel actually has a good reputation and I have mostly good memories from my time there, but when ranking shameful things about the school, a canceled football game would be at the very bottom of the list.
