Vote or else!

Is it just me or is this little bit of info reported by Sports Illustrated on Campus just a bit disturbing? (Scoll down to the part about Miami(Ohio) football) Can a football coach really force all of his players to register and vote? Even if so, who would want to play for a coach who mandates that you take part in a form of statolatry that you may not approve of?

I'm presently undecided as to which is worse: this incident or attempts made by college coaches in the past to force players to stand during the national anthem and salute the flag. While some good can at least come out of voting depending on how you view the government and the electoral system, it does involve having to register with the state. Forcing players to salute the flag doesn't involve such action.
