Yale's Brandon Sherrod to Sit Out 2014-15 Season

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

The Yale Bulldogs will lose one of their key contributors in 2014-15 season for a very strange reason.

Yale had quite the season going 19-14 and playing all the way into April where they lost to the Murray State Racers in the CIT final. Yale was set to bring their core back, but we found out today that the Bulldogs third leading scorer Brandon Sherrod will be sitting out the year.

Ivy Hoops Online's Bruno March interviewed Yale head coach James Jones who revealed that Sherrod will spend the year with the college's famous a cappella group the Whiffenpoofs.

Wikipedia describes the group, that sounds like something out of a Harry Potter book, as such:

Yale Whiffenpoofs, an undergraduate musical group at Yale University, is the oldest collegiate a cappella group in the United States. Established in 1909 and best known for "The Whiffenpoof Song",[1] the group comprises senior men who compete in the spring of their junior year for 14 spots.[2] The Whiffs' best-known alumnus may be Cole Porter, who sang in the 1913 lineup; the group often performs Porter songs in tribute.

The 6'6 Sherrod averaged 21 minutes, 6.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.1 assists for the Bulldogs this past year.
