Practice fights normal in spring ball 

April, 1, 2012
ATHENS, Ga. -- Chris Burnette adheres to a simple philosophy when teammates begin to scuffle in practice: Step aside and catch your breath.

“Honestly I love it when they get in a fight,” the Georgia offensive lineman said. “Since high school, when people start fighting, I just back up and get a rest. ‘Y’all go ahead and do that and get tired. I’m just going to get this quick little rest in.’ It just comes with the territory.”

Fights are a regular occurrence during out-of-season practices like the ones the Bulldogs are conducting this spring. A visiting high school prospect recently brought attention to the subject when he tweeted about linebacker Alec Ogletree and tailback Isaiah Crowell fighting between plays during a recent spring practice.
