Oregon Ducker Punches Boise State Player

If you watch the video Hout says something to Blount then hits him on the shoulder pad and Blount slugs him. I don't know what was said but Blount had been talking trash before the game even started, saying that Oregon was going to kick BSU's arse. This is understandable because UO had it handed to them last season by BSU at home. If you watched the entire game you would have seen that tempers were hot on both sides. They were getting in to it from the initial kickoff. There is always trash talk on the field in every football game. It is not a "let's play nice and not make anyone mad" type of sport. The behaviors of both players was inexcusable. Blount could have just walked off the field after the punch but he didn't, Hout could have kept his mouth shut but he didn't. Blount though pushes and punched his own teammates, reacted badly toward some stupid BSU fans and started swinging at those trying to restrain him. He had been suspended indefinitely from the team in February for “failure to fulfill team obligations” and was reinstated before spring practice. He knew he was on thin ice with the coach and his actions after the game just made it worse. He has lost his senior season but he gets to retain his scholarship and will continue to practice with the team. Unfortunately instead of learning from his prior behavior he has now joined the ranks of college athletes who have ruined their professional careers because of their bad behavior.

The guy is just a thug. I hope they treat him like a thug and suspend him for the season. You can take the kid out of the ghetto but cant take the ghetto out of the kid. Weak sauce.

Is it just me, or did anyone else see the Boise State player hit and taunt the Oregon player. He should have gotten KO. If the Oregon player was suspended, so should have the player from Boise State.
