Colorado State Assistant Coach Greg Lupfer has been suspended two weeks without pay for the incident Saturday during the New Mexico Bowl where he called Washington State QB Connor Halliday a “f*cking f*ggot.” Here is Lupfer’s statement released through the university:
“I accept these consequences — two weeks without pay and the training programs — and I am thankful for this second chance to continue coaching at Colorado State and be a part of the Ram Family,” Lupfer said in a statement. “I am deeply sorry for my behavior, which does not represent who I am or my values. I embrace the opportunity to participate in anger management and diversity sensitivity training. I was angry and careless with my words, and my words hurt many people. I sincerely apologize to the GLBTQ community for causing pain by using a slur without considering its meaning. I take ownership of my words and fully understand why people are very upset.”
The university also said that Lupfer would be placed on a zero-tolerance policy. Something tells me that they go on pretending this never happened after the two weeks are up. A strong statement would have been to have a “zero-tolerance” policy for gay slurs the first time a representative of the university did this.

Next time someone complains to you that "there are too many bowl games," you tell them the story of the 2013 Gildan New Mexico Bowl. Tell them how Colorado State trailed 45-30 with 2:52 left, after being outplayed all night. Tell them how the Rams forced (estimate) 20 fumbles in the final two minutes. Tell them how the Rams got two quick TDs, went for two with the most...

ON THE UNOFFICIAL list of most painful Cougar losses, it’s hard to imagine any circumstance in which a setback to Colorado State would crack even a top ten. The Rams aren’t a rival. They’re not ranked or in a major conference. They just don’t matter that much. But oh how looks can be deceiving. Because in the pantheon of crimson pain, mighty CSU catapulted itself to unspeakable...
