Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer sent a letter of apology to a campus lesbian and gay advocacy group for a team rule that punished "loafing" players by making them wear lavender jerseys during practice.
Meyer acted following a complaint from the Scarlet and Gay group, which took offense at the use of a "non-masculine" color often associated with the LGBT community to isolate an offending player in conditioning drills.
When the rule was introduced at a Feb. 15 news conference, junior linebacker Etienne Sabino said players were driven by the desire to avoid wearing a lavender jersey.
"You don't want to wear those shirts at all," Sabino said. "Just loafing in general, you don't want to get those. The lavender (jersey) is definitely motivation not to get any loafs."
Responding to the Scarlet and Gay complaint, Meyer said players pulling up short for the second time during drills would be made to wear another color other than the "purple" jerseys.
