Washington Post Correction

January 12, 2006 -- A story in the Wednesday, Jan. 11, edition of The Washington Post ran an op-ed piece — "Teaching the 'Good Kids'/With Consequences for Bad Behavior" — in which the author, John Feinstein, writes that "When a University of Virginia player was involved in an incident at Boston College this season that was just as ugly as Vick-Dumervil, it wasn't the school that suspended him for one game but the Atlantic Coast Conference." 

In fact, it was U.Va., that made the decision to suspend the player, a decision which ACC Commissioner John Swofford strongly supported. 

Swofford's statement, made on Oct. 10, 2005, said, in part: "The Atlantic Coast Conference fully supports the decision of the University of Virginia for issuing this one-game suspension. ... The league joins Virginia in taking a strong stand against this kind of inappropriate behavior and sending a clear and definitive message that the Conference and its member institutions will make every effort to exemplify the very best qualities of sportsmanship."
