I don't think the coaches should say anything publicly. This stuff happens. I'm sure they will talk to Walters and MB2 and make sure it doesn't linger and then make sure the guys know it can't turn into a veteran's versus freshmen battle. Maybe state that most families have fights, especially brothers and leave it at that.
As a coach you want to see this type of fight during the season when guys are getting after it and being physical. But, if it happens in the off season so be it.
i'll be in the extreme minority here. at a practice in pads, i could understand. "awesome. agressive and fighting, mad and ready to go." going at each other when we sell unity and family in recruiting? not good. and say what you want, but there is a seldom kiss and make up. they'll remeber it every time they see each other. after a loss when the finger pointing and yelling starts? probably not pretty. potentially divisive as well.
this team is hungry and ready. a fight between a three-year letterman and a true freshman is far from evidence. probably not a big deal.
Bobby- Ketch just asked you to carry his pads.
I disagree. Last year I had two Big kids fight at practice. Before I could break it up one needed 7 stitches under his eye, and the other one had 2 cuts around his eye that requires band aids, but not stitches. The NEXT DAY we have a game and the one with stitches takes a dirty elbow to the side of the head. The 1st person to step in and want a piece of the guy that threw the elbow was the guy he got in a fight with the day before. And this wasn't in a thugish, "I want to fight" way, it was a "Nobody f#@&$ with my teammates" way.
Like I said earlier, brothers fight. Older brothers pull crap on younger brothers until the younger one stands up to him and let's him know he isn't taking his shit any longer. Once that happens respect is formed.
Agree with HoopsCoach
Maybe if our linemen are trying to help DT's off the scale they can help a QB off the turf.
I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
Agree with Texaus. It's barely mid-July. These guys have been working out and doing 7 on 7; it's not like it's the last week of 2 a days and everybody's sick of hitting the same guy for 3 weeks. Little early for this stuff
