Cavendish recalls 'puddle of blood' after horrific crash

  Cavendish recalls 'puddle of blood' after horrific crash British rider Mark Cavendish commended the "courage" of Tour de France jurors for disqualifying world champion Peter Sagan for a horrific crash that took both of them out of the race on Tuesday. Speaking Wednesday, before the Tour set off without him from the spa town of Vittel on Stage 5, Cavendish said his immediate concern after he hit the deck was a profusely bleeding finger on his right hand."There was just a puddle of blood on the floor. I thought, 'I'm going to bleed to death here.' But my teammates were around and they helped me to my feet," he said.

While Duke may be the college basketball program most known for slapping the floor on defense, Tom Izzo's Michigan State Spartans have developed the habit as well. It's a sign of a blue-collar team willing to dig deep, work hard, and get dirty.

And Tom Izzo, the Hall of Fame-caliber guy that he is, would never ask his players to do something he wouldn't do himself. So when a piece of popcorn fell to the floor instead of into his mouth, you can bet Izzo was willing to hustle for it and eat it anyway.

It is inspiring to see him locked in and dedicated in advance of the upcoming season. With Miles Bridges, Cassius Winston, Joshua Langford and Nick Ward back - and a stellar recruiting class coming in - Izzo has a real chance to win his first national title since 2000.

That he's humble and hungry is excellent news for those in East Lansing.
