(Newser) – A high school football coach in Roosevelt, Utah, suspended his entire varsity team—during Homecoming week. After coach Matt Labrum got word that his players were getting poor grades, disrespecting teachers, and that some of them might have been involved in cyber-bullying, he’d had enough. Friday night, Labrum told his players the team was disbanded until they could earn the right to play football.
