I couldn’t possibly pass up the chance to inform you about a story that has to do with my alma mater and is this ridiculous, could I? UConn Football players Dave Teggart and Jerome Williams were arrested Monday night for breach of peace after being involved in a fight. Teggart, a kicker, and Williams, a linebacker, will most likely be suspended as would be the case with any player who got arrested for getting into a fight.
Unless, of course, the only two parties involved in the fight were the players themselves. That’s right, Teggart and Williams were arrested for fighting each other. Head coach Randy Edsall said the two players won’t miss playing time because they were the only two involved. As if the situation isn’t embarrassing enough, Edsall also had this to say:
It will be handled quite well. Nobody got hurt. No black eyes, nothing like that. It was like a cat fight.
A cat fight? Ouch. If you’re going to get taken to the clink for fighting with a teammate you might as well leave a bruise. Apparently these two just scratched and clawed. Their coach phrasing it that way to the press is probably punishment enough.
