The NCAA women’s soccer bracket is under way and one Boston College player was not happy about having to play the second round at Penn State. Sophomore forward Stephanie McCaffrey made a series of tweets Thursday, expressing her displeasure of the venue by way of rape jokes.

Though not only the tweets but also her account were deleted, Onward State, the Penn State newspaper, nabbed the full text of the rant:
“I wonder if well get into the visitors locker room at Penn state…I hear the showers are weiners only, 10 and under,” read the first of McCaffrey’s tweets.

She went on:
“Raping at penn state to getting raped in state penn… #beatPennState #santouchsky #legggooeags”
“Sandusky used to cart the kids around in this #handydeliverytrucks…”
“@patricevettori #sandusky‘s house tonight! @kristiemewie @kcmosun…”

McCaffrey’s now-eradicated profile, @stephyymac, boasted the bio , “Just off the binky, time to get kinky,” according to Onward State. By around 9 p.m. Thursday night, McCaffrey had been suspended from Friday’s game. Boston College Athletic Director Bob Bates released the following statement: “The student-athlete used very poor judgment and exhibited insensitivity towards Penn State for which she apologizes. This type of behavior is not tolerated among our student-athletes.”

Another Boston College women’s soccer player retweeted the tweets and made comment:
“@stephyymac is literally making me die with all her tweets #makingmyweek #beatPennState #headonaswivel #sanduskyville,” safety Sean Sylvia wrote.

Needless to say, Onward State took issue with the tweets: “If you attend the game tomorrow, it might be in your best interest to boo number nine every time she touches the ball,” they wrote.

McCaffrey was referencing Jerry Sandusky, the disgraced former assistant football coach at Penn State. Sandusky was convicted of 45 of 48 counts of sexual abuse against 10 minors, after a 2011 grand jury report was issued.
