BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) Indiana receiver Isaac Griffith kept his composure as long as possible Saturday.
It was never going to last.
He listened stoically as safety Ty Smith explained how he ignored the dire warnings from his aquatics management class and his own mother, a former lifeguard, to run back into the water and help pull his best friend out of a life-threatening rip current. He heard receiver Nick Stoner explain how he ran the fastest 500-meter sprint of his life to seek medical help. He heard his parents describe his incredibly speedy recovery as nothing short of miraculous.
