    Tired of Pre Game Fights

    Anybody else tired of all these college teams getting in pre game shoving matches? It's as if they saw one team do it and now they all think it is cool/tough to do it.

    Just shut up and play

    Honestly, I kind of like it... and if we did that before the ISU/Iowa game, I would definitely get REALLY pumped up!

    I agree - I'm tired of it as well. Trouble is, all the players know that ESPN will repeatedly show tape of it for the next 24 hours at least...

    I agree. All they do is jump up and down, yell at each other and act like they want to fight but they really don't want to.

    Re: Tired of Pre Game Fights

    I find it entertaining. Plus then I want to watch the rest of the game to see if a really good fight will break out. Hey ISU is done for the year and I'm easily amused, what can I say!

    Ha! Hard to argue w/ that!

    I found it entertaining, the first time it ever happened. Since it is done during every rivalry game. And ESPN plays it like it is this big news story. It gets old

    If ESPN wouldn't show this every 10 seconds for the next 3 days it wouldn't happen.

    Re: Tired of Pre Game Fights

    I don't mind when the team is good. I had a problem with Texas A&M doing it last Thursday when it was obvious to everyone but them that they were going to get worked. Don't talk crap when you're 4-7 playing against a top 5 team. That's really all I ask. Also, Stephen McGee for A&M was being a complete joke running his mouth all night. Make a play, then you can talk.

    Re: Tired of Pre Game Fights

    This is just aggressive play.


    OK, I did that to amuse.
    I do like it. I think they should have some props though, like a folding chair or a ladder with a suitcase of money on the top. Maybe a triton and a net.

    Does anybody else, watching Baylor football and Nebraska yesterday, get the feeling that we had multiple windows of opportunity to establish football momentum the last five years--I mean right there for the taking--and we squandered it. It could be the Dark Ages.

    Notre Dame just did it w/ USC. I would like them more if they all weren't so phony. Find other ways to get pumped before a game

    The NCAA should kill it, and quickly, or else a hockey game will break out.

    Re: Tired of Pre Game Fights

    Pregame fights are even funnier when one team has no chance of winning.

    ESPN - USC Trojans put fight in Notre Dame Irish during pregame warmups
