Definitely not role models

Evidently the Miami and LSU footballs teams weren't listening earlier this week when one of the great NFL coaches of our time, Tony Dungy of the Indianapolis Colts, buried his eighteen-year-old son after an apparent suicide. At the funeral, Dungy appealed to football players specifically, and world-class athletes generally, to respect their influence as role models. Yet the Miami and LSU teams disgraced his plea in a melee following tonight's Peach Bowl, which left two Miami players unconscious and shamed two storied college football programs.
