There are many things you can do to be considered a good teammate. First of all, you can support your teammates both on and off the field. Help them with any problems they may be having, or, if you're a senior and they're an underclassmen, show them the ropes of what it takes to succeed in college. What you shouldn't do is attack your teammate in the locker room and send him to the hospital.

Which is apparently what a pair of former Louisville football players did last season. Isaac Geffrad and Jacob Geffrad, twin brothers, were charged with assault in November, and the details of the case are just now coming out.
Police reports call it a violent attack that caused serious physical injury. According to the arrest slip, former football players and twin brothers Isaac and Jacob Geffrad were charged in November, but the documents describing what happened have just been released.
The brothers are accused of attacking Patrick Grant while he was sitting in the football locker room at Cardinal stadium after practice.
Grant was taken to the hospital with fractured bones in his face.
Grant had to have two surgeries following the attack, one to repair the bone structure around his eye socket, and a second to save his sight in his left eye. Neither Jacob or Isaac are still listed on the Louisville roster, and a team spokesman says that both players were kicked off the team shortly after the incident occurred.

It Happens in most southern states colleges! LSU, FSU,FL,Auburn And Alabama to name a few. They also have several cases of rape every year but nothing is ever done about it because football is more important.

Its sorta funny. Here are two guys that I never even heard of, which were on the UofL team, and this dumb Yankeee from the north looks like he is trying to defend them.
LMAO at the Kentuckian who is 2 dumb to know he is actually from the North as well.  Having spent a year in Louisville building the KFC YUM arena i can attest that most people from that area are also too dumb to realize this as well.

Louisville has been scum; Louisville is scum; and Louisville will always be scum imo. Assaults, thefts, overrecruiting, cover-ups, marginal academics, and a sleazy set of coaches - the list goes on and on and on. The BE needs to give them the boot.

@Philsfan1... why would he need to "keep his stupid comments to himself" and why in the world would he "sound like a complete moron"?  Unless this is your girlfriend, I have no idea as to why you would be so upset.  He has a valid point: this took place months ago and regardless of the details it should've been released to the public before this time.  Regardless of your attachment to this topic that is a fact that can not be disputed.

I am glad to see that these two scumbags were kicked off the team.  Now let's see if these two thugs get sent to the correct team, which would be housed in a State Prison.
