Sorry Richie Incognito, Scott Shafer Likes To Leave It On The Field

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

You know what the Richie Incognito - Miami Dolphins saga is missing? Some Scott Shafer.

Andrew Sharp did a great job explaining how the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin thing has bled over and become the kind of story that your mom has an opinion on. It's the kind of sports story that you can discuss with just about anyone in your life because surely they've heard SOMETHING about it and have a HOT TAKE of their own.

So it's only natural that we get Scott Shafer's opinion on the matter as well, or at least, his feelings on how you make your football players tough.

"For me it's never really singling out a kid in such a way that you're having teammates go after him. I don't believe in that at all.

"You go do a contact drill, you don't have to call them out. It's right there. It's what I love about this sport. You get a chance to go head-to-head and bam, you get knocked on your butt and you have a decision to make. Am I going to get up? Or how am I going to get up? And you earn respect not just knocking a guy down but how you respond to the next opportunity.

"It's a process that the kids that we get love. Some of them more than others, but it's also great to see a young man find out about himself by learning how to be physical with another human being. That's the beauty of the sport to me."

No one's asked Boeheim what he thinks (yet) but given what he said about the Mike Rice, I would imagine he is against bullying.
