There is a TV in the media room where we interview Coach Willingham, and naturally today that TV showing those awful pictures from Virginia Tech.
I asked if his particular incident -- especially because it took place on a college campus -- is the kind of thing Willingham would discuss with his team.
"We've had a lot of things the last couple of years happen along this line in our country and probably the world, also. It really sets a terrible tone for the times that we live in.
Never miss a local story.
"I don't know the reason for it, but I try to ask our guys to think about some of these things as they're going about their daily routines and try not to put yourselves in harm's way, and be considerate and respectful of other people, because you never know the stresses that other people have.
"It's really sad, and my heart goes out to the families that are going to be affected by this. At some point, we need to stop this madness."
