A party at a private residence that included members of both the Washington State and Idaho football teams nearly ended in tragedy late Saturday night/early Sunday morning.

Cougars wide receiver Mansel Simmons was knocked unconscious during a brawl between the present members of the two teams. After being found by police in the parking lot, he was transported to two different hospitals, where he was diagnosed with a fractured skull, according the NBC Sports.

Simmons’ situation remained dire for quite some time. The player remained in a coma until Monday afternoon, and he remains hospitalized for the time being.

At first, about 20 total members from both teams were inside a house, partying. All of them were asked to leave, however, when the sides started arguing. Their tempers were not assuaged once outside the residence, and the words escalated into a full-blown fight in a parking lot across the street from the party.

While no arrests have been made as of yet, it is only a matter of time. An official from the police department where the party was held told Scout.com that “[w]e’re pretty sure we know who the University of Idaho player is who hit Mr. Simmons.”

Administrators at both Washington State and Idaho have declined comment in keeping with school policy until the investigation has run its course.

Simmons redshirted his first year on campus, in 2011. He did not catch a pass in his first full season of eligibility for coach Mike Leach’s Cougars squad.
