There was another college football brawl this weekend


Check out this excerpt from the article about the finish of the Dartmouth/Holy Cross game from Dartmouth's cleverly-named newspaper, The Dartmouth:

Unfortunately for the Big Green, Holy Cross was able to attempt a chip shot, 18-yard field goal. As DeSantis lined up for the kick, the swirling autumn winds and occasional shouts from the sidelines were the only noise to be heard in Memorial Field as both teams set up for what could very well have been the last play of the game.
The Big Green fans began to awaken and cheer, trying to distract DeSantis to no avail. The kick sailed through the uprights, allowing the Crusaders to come away with a dramatic and disappointing(for Dartmouth) 24-21 overtime victory.
The Big Green players were gathered on the sideline after the game when Holy Cross began dancing on the Dartmouth "D" in the center of the field. This was perceived as an insult by many Big Green players. Punches, and even crutches flew as a brawl broke out in the middle of the field. After nearly 10 minutes, the conflict was broken up by police and intervening members of each team's staff.

This has to go down as one of the funniest fights of all time.

From some Sports Guy reader:

"I got an advanced copy of the punishment for 11 Dartmouth players involved in the melee with Holy Cross: (1) Banned from the fall regatta; (2) Valet parking privileges suspended for one month; (3) Spa services limited to Swedish massage for two weeks. It's time we send the Ivy League thugs a message."
