Matt Mosley just called this in...
Guard DeAnthony Batiste and rookie linebacker Oliver Hoyte just had a skirmish during special teams drills. They went after it pretty good. Decision goes to Hoyte, the subject of the wildly popular 2-Minute Drill segment
we have on this blog. Hoyte's helmet was ripped off in the brawl.
Mosley also reports that Parcells is particularly animated today. Details to come.

2-Minute Drill with LB Oliver Hoyte
LB Oliver Hoyte
6-3, 250, free-agent rookie out of N.C. State
Avid Monopoly player
When did you start playing Monopoly?
I started playing a lot when I was a senior in high school.
Why do you like it so much?
Because I’m a schemer. I love buying up all that property.
And you kept playing in college?
Oh yeah. I bet I played six or seven hours a week. We’d play at least three or four games each night.
Has Monopoly always been a popular pastime for N.C. State players?
I just know it was for us.
Did you play different versions of the game?
Yeah, we started playing NFL Monopoly in college. You could buy up stadiums. I remember owning Tampa Bay and Oakland’s stadiums the year they went to the Super Bowl.
Were you the best Monopoly player on the team?
I probably won about 85 to 90 percent of the time.
Do you guys make up some of your own rules?
Yes, we definitely tweaked a few rules. If you didn’t ask the banker for your $200 when you passed “Go,” you didn’t get it. We also had a free parking spot area where you could make extra money.
Wouldn’t that be an NCAA violation?
[Laughing] I hope not.
Have you found anyone in camp to play Monopoly with?
No, I’m gonna try to make the team first.
