Pac-12 links: Cal running back hospitalized after fight

» A fight between Cal running back Fabiano Hale and an unnamed player sent the former to the hospital last Friday. University police know who the suspect is, but have not disclosed his name and did not say whether charges will be filed. Hale is now home recovering from a concussion, and does not remember being taken to the hospital.

A source told the San Francisco Chronicle’s Hunter Hewitt that coaches asked players to “deal with” Hale for oversleeping a practice, and that it took two hours for his parents to be notified that he was in the hospital. Cal disputed those allegations.
