Minnesota-UND Handshake fight

Ben Blood is a classless human.....happy to hear he was disciplined by the team (although a pretty lousy punishment):

who knows what was said or done to provoke him. He was calm up until that player.

this reminds of legarette blount and when the guy from Boise came up to him looking like a tool and blount punched him.

The scrum at the end of the game, somebody chopped his legs out from under him from behind. It was pretty cowardly. I didn't see if that was the same guy who did that to him, but it could have just as easily been someone telling him to learn to skate, or something along those lines.

Not condoning it, but it wasn't all that bad and I can see why he was hot. It was a very dangerous thing he had done to him.

If he started it with the guy that took out the back of his legs, I have no problem with what he did. That was a cowardly and pathetic move by the opposing player.

I have no problem with it period. I, however, do not think it was with the same player. The guy who tackles him is also the guy that started the whole messing with Mr. Blood.
