At this point, he has nothing to lose and everything to gain in enforcing his policies in an effort to gain the respect of the players. If he wouldn't have suspended Jalen, we could've lost by only 20; however, he enforced his policy and suspended Jalen and lost by 25.
If he chooses to suspend 1-2 players the rest of the season, we won't win another game. If he chooses to let 1-2 players slide for conducting themselves in a way that severely detriments the program, we still don't win another game.
IMO, it will pay dividends in the future, and the future is all that matters at this point.
As far as the two kicked off the team, as ChargerDog pointed out, that wasn't solely his decision.
