A new rule for High School football in Connecticut means that coaches whose teams win by more than 50 points will face a one game suspension for an unsportsmanlike act.
Now I can agree with not running up the score, but, this rule would apply even if the third string players are in.
I believe that is a big problem with public schools in this country. Every one is so worried about a child's emotional state, that we aren't teaching them what things are like in the real world. Once they hit the work force, they are going to have a very rude awakening when the opposing team (competition) runs up the score by doing all they can to steal customers.
