LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Razorback Coach Bobby Petrino reacts to the recent actions of an Arkansas player. Saturday, freshman Marquel Wade had to be escorted off the field. He was mad game officials threw him out of the game.

"That's the thing that I didn't like," said Petrino.

But the Razorback team is not the only school facing unsportsmanlike conduct problems. A recent Youtube video shows the UAPB team getting into a confrontation against Southern University. It resulted in suspensions for twenty-five Golden Lions.

Dr. Howard Turney is the director of the social work school at UALR. He says coaches must do a better job teaching kids how to be better players.

"High schools and colleges have several coaches and I think it is up to them to provide leadership and direction that promotes good sportsmanship," said Turney.

Last week, a fight involving the Monticello and Hamburg Junior High Schools also broke after its game. District leaders are now reviewing the video to determine disciplinary action.
