I'd suspend him for a couple games. One for hitting the Boise guy, and one for fighting with his own teammates.

He'll be kicked off the team, no doubt. He's done.

Doubt it, he probably will have to sit out a few games, but I dont think he will be kicked off the team. This stuff actually happens allot in the tunnel and off the field. We just usually dont see it right in the middle of the field in front of everyone. When I played ball in high school fights were common between players on the same team and between players on opposing teams, its just apart of the game.

That was so Idiotic!

Players always talk trash in all sports! During and at the end of games.

He might not play all seasons. And he deserves it!!

HS FB isn't played in front of 1,000's of people and millions on TV.

The new HC will lose all control of his team if he doesn't boot him, guys been suspended before, I guarantee you he gets booted.

Still dont think so. LaGarrete Blount was ranked 9th last year in FBS for total yards, he is a very good RB. Oregon's head coach cares more about making it to a bowl game than anything else.

I hope he is suspended. If he is on an athletic scholarship he should be booted. You shouldn't get a free ride and then get to be a punk ass crybaby.

That's the problem I have with college sports. It should still be about student athletes, and not just talent. The NFL has cracked down hard on this kind of stuff, with coaches benching their own star players for stuff like this. The school doesn't owe this kid anything.

I would suspend him for a game. Look at guys who get into fights, get caught with weed or DUI and get 4 game suspension. I don't think this is as serious as a DUI.
