Very classy status considering the circumstances.
EDIT: Just to keep this thread on topic, my above commentary around "the circumstances" refers to the fact that Swenson obviously wants to be in the class and does not have that opportunity. Regardless of why, that has to be tough for a kid, and I respect that he didn't take potshots. That's often not the case. I am not drawing any conclusions around whether it was ethical on the coaching staff's part, as I don't know those details, so direct your angry commentary around that elsewhere.
