BC player faces charge, but the game goes on

RE “FEMALE student angry BC player reinstated” (Sports, Sept. 20): How convenient that Boston College defensive tackle Jaryd Rudolph’s “football suspension” did not cause him to miss any games nor, evidently, the activities required for him to be ready to play, as he faces a criminal charge of violating a female student’s privacy.

While not as egregious as the Penn State case, this is yet another example of how the tail of major college sports wags the dog of educational mission at many schools.
