Some of the players involved in the recent on-field brawl between Miami and Florida-International said they saw teammates being kicked and beaten and jumped in only to protect a teammate.
So, I wondered how coach Tyrone Willingham would want his players to react in such a situation.
"You would hope that your players would try to get their player out there without igniting the situation. … You don't want to be involved – period, in most cases – because any involvement heightens the thing. But those that are there are trying to get your teammate out of it without any other altercations."
