Dykes: 'I'd be very concerned if things didn't get chippy'

As we've highlighted before, Sonny Dykes likes a bit of "chippiness" during spring practices, even going as far as saying that practice scuffles can be productive.

After practice yesterday Dykes reaffirmed that belief, noting that it brings out the competitiveness in his players.

"It's always going to get a little chippy in the spring. I would be very concerned if it didn't. If the guys were out here not competing against each other and didn't care, I would have some major, major concerns." he explained.

"Anytime that guys are fighting hard and competing against each other there are going to be some guys that get their feelings hurt, or whatever. But like I said, I don't mind seeing that."
