Writing about the punch after the Boise State-Oregon game, Gene Wojciechowski at ESPN notes, (emphasis added)
Sportsmanship isn’t dead in Football Bowl Subdivision programs, but it’s on a respirator. I covered the Minnesota-Syracuse game Saturday, then watched large chunks of the Charleston Southern-Florida, BYU-Oklahoma and Alabama-Virginia Tech games. On Monday night I watched the Miami-Florida State game. You know how many times I noticed a player helping an opposing player off the ground?
Is good sportsmanship dead in college football? Is it dead at BYU? And if so, what can or should we do about it?
