And for good reason, as nothing gives a team or athletic program a black eye like an episode of poor player, coach, or fan behavior. On the flip side, though, nothing shines quite like a coach, player, or fan base going above and beyond in honoring their opponent. Here are some recent stories from across the country spotlighting varying degrees of sportsmanship, including a debate over etiquette for honoring an injured player.
