Minnesota football team will play in Holiday Bowl”

"They were in a situation where they were supporting teammates, and I think the local and national media translated that into support of sexual violence and their intent was to support their teammates", he said.

Mr Kaler said he was pleased the students had shown their support for the victims of sexual violence by ending their boycott.

Minnesota players began skipping football activities Thursday and threatened to boycott the bowl game. "She recalls yelling for them to stop sending people in the room because she couldn't handle it", one of the reports said. One was that we they might not be able to play in the bowl game. "And then I told them there's a great chance I could lose my job over this".

Kaler and Coyle issued statements Friday, and reiterated to the players in a meeting late Friday night, that they had no intention of changing their decision after an internal investigation determined the suspended players violated school conduct codes in an encounter involving a woman and several players at an off-campus dorm September 2.

The Gophers had been protesting the suspension of 10 players connected to a sexual assault allegation, demanding that the players be reinstated immediately.

The school, however, ruled the players violated a school policy adopted previous year that defines sexual assault as anything without a "clear and unambiguous" expression of consent. Numerous players who initially backed the boycott Thursday had not read the university's 82-page report detailing the woman's specific allegations. But after hours of sometimes contentious meetings on Friday, a group of players gathered Saturday morning to denounce sexual assault and say there is no place for it on campus. The team had objected to the 10 players being publicly identified and what it saw as a lack of due process for them. Authorities declined to press criminal charges, and the woman later agreed not to seek any civil action.

Linebacker Nick Rallis told the station the players believe the boycott succeeded, even though nobody was reinstated, because they believe it will ensure that athletes at Minnesota and other colleges who are accused of misconduct in the future get fair hearings.

The university said in a statement that 10 players were suspended indefinitely on Tuesday. "It's all about now representing the team and the university, all our alums in a first-class manner".
