Football fights are usually disappointing because those darn facemasks get in the way. So props to Clemson’s great thinker, Tommy Bowden for implying that the Pacers/Pistons rumble was in any way to blame (as opposed to the poor leadership skills of highly paid educators like, uh, Tommy Bowden).

I’m pretty sure there were punches thrown somewhere in America yesterday that cannot be blamed on Ron Artest. But I’d have to look it up.
