    Two men "wrestling" at 4:10 a.m.?
    Umm, OK.

    2 coaches fall through hotel window at convention
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two assistant coaches apparently wrestling with each other fell through a hotel window Tuesday morning and fell four stories to a concrete sidewalk, leaving one in serious condition.
    The American Football Coaches Association is holding its annual convention at the Opryland Hotel, and hotel security had been called around 4:10 a.m. with a noise complaint when officers found a broken window and Scott Coy and Darren DeMeio outside on the ground below.
    "They wrestled each other too close to the window going through it and down to the ground floor," Nashville police spokeswoman Kris Mumford said. "That's four floors."
    Coy, 29, is 6-foot-2 and 300 pounds from Newcastle, Pa. He was in critical condition and having surgery Tuesday afternoon at Vanderbilt University. DeMeio, 24, is 6-4, 225 pounds and from Clinton, Ohio. Police said he was in fair condition but remained in the hospital as of Tuesday afternoon.
    Coy is co-offensive coordinator at Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pa., and DeMeio is the running backs coach, according to the college's Web site. A telephone message left with the sports information office was not immediately returned Tuesday afternoon.
    Hotel spokeswoman Kim Keelor said the window the men fell through was double-paned with a strong wooden sash in the middle.
    "It's very sad. I definitely want to express our sympathy to their families. It's just a very strange and unfortunate occurrence," she said.

    Oh, geez, too funny. Just a couple of ex-jocks who haven't yet entered the real world.

    Not sure if this will help them or hurt them when it comes to trying to maintain control of the team on the road.

    Multiple choice time! The wrestling match happened over?

    A) The last beer in the cooler

    B) Control of the remote

    C) Someone's sleeping habits (aka, snoring, passing gas etc.)

    D) Only one bed in the room and they didn't want to wake up to a Planes, Trains and Automobiles incident.

    I'm stunned one of them isn't Ed Orgeron.
