Pac-10 looks like it will decide on Blount

Posted on: September 4, 2009 10:51 am

BOISE -- The first major issue for Larry Scott looms as the new Pac-10 commissioner decides how to weigh in on Thursday’s ugly finish to the Oregon-Boise State game.

Oregon tailback LeGarrette Blount punched Boise’s Byron Hout and later tangled with fans as he left the field.  Pac-10 spokesman Jim Muldoon told early Friday morning, “I’m assuming it’s our jurisdiction,” in penalizing Blount, a senior.

Muldoon spoke at approximately 7:30 a.m. PT  and added that he and Scott would speak later in the day.

“We don’t act in haste,” Muldoon said.

Oregon coach Chip Kelly said Thursday he would take appropriate action, if warranted, after reviewing tape of Blount’s actions. NCAA coordinator of officials Dave Parry said that the association will not have a say in any suspension of Blount.

“Once the game is over, when the clock strikes zero, the officials are out of it,” Parry said.

Scott was in Boise seeing his first college football game in at least 10 years. Scott’s last game seen in person was a Harvard-Yale contest in the 1990s, he said. He took office in July after the retirement of former commissioner Tom Hansen.

Blount’s actions were unprecedented in many respects. Clemson and South Carolina removed their teams from bowl consideration after a brawl in 2004. Florida International and Miami fought in a wild brawl in October 2006. However, both of those incidents in the middle of play.

Blount punched Hout, who went to his knees, then taunted Boise State player on the field. Hout, a defensive end, wasn’t blameless. He is seen on replays laying a hand on Blount and jawing with the tailback who ran for a school-record 17 touchdowns last season. Blount later attempted to get at a fan who had taunted him from behind a barrier as Oregon left the field. Blount was restrained by a policeman, receivers coach Scott Frost and a security person.

“It’s sends a message maybe to other kids and schools to be on top of this,” Parry said.

Nice dodge......I asked about his behavior POST punch....that's why he's gone...cause he couldn't keep his ghetto attitude in check.  Now, he'll be flippin burgers till he gets busted on felony drug charges.  You have it so wrong on so many levels you couldn't begin to comprehend.  He kept his street rep but burned his ticket to a better education or maybe even pro ball.   You have obviously never sniffed success....probably never would understand that you let NOTHING get in the way of your goals.  Blount obviosuly didn't figure anything....because if he did...he would have kept walkin.....I learned something long ago...take this with you big d....YOU are the sum of the five people you hang out with the most.....take their lives, their professions, etc....and look at your're the average...scary isn't it?

The truth is always free big d.....ask me anytime.....

We know that the Pac-10 doesn't act in haste... just look at the joke that is the USC "Championship" with Reggie Bush who blatantly violated NCAA rules.  Neither the Pac-10 nor the NCAA has acted in haste in that situation, why should they start now?

That apology was a farce.  Sincere?  He sounded like a guy who someone had told him that he was in serious serious trouble. "I'll never do that again."  Then why did he get kicked out of practice for alledgedly fighting with teammates? 

He's done....gone for the year!!!!

Kudos to Belotti and company!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The punk has been punked!!!!!!!!!

I've seen a lot of punches thrown during a game, even a couple after, most miss by a mile.....  at least he landed it.  And Hout actually stood back up, that punch looked pretty solid.

Seriously though, Blount obviously was in the wrong.  Needs a suspension for 4 games to half the season.  But let the kid learn from his mistake.  If you kick him off the team you may very well punish him for the rest of his life.  I did a lot, and I mean a lot, of stupid stuff when I was in my early 20's and most of it a lot worse than punching a guy for smarting off.  Punch an idiot in a bar smarting off to you, $500 fine and we'll see you back here next week, don't do it again.  Punch a guy in the face for being a prick, off the team, out of school, no NFL for you.... that just seems way too much.  This stuff afterword is what may make it a half season suspension.  But once he was in that heat of the moment he wasn't going to calm down, I consider it all one event.   I felt he was sincere in his apology (which doesn't excuse the action).

Suspend him, run is #ss off, but let him play again in 6 weeks.

And tell Hout to not act like the tool that he appears to be.  But at least he can take a punch.

What a bunch of idiots we have on here...
Seriously, its not about who hit who, or why who hit who, or what we should or shouldn't do about who hit who...

Its about Who went into the STANDSWho blew up on the field, AFTER a game was OVER.  That's Who is in the WRONG, and THAT deserves harsh punishment.


Ron Artest went into the stands...

..It effectively ended his career. 

Blount going into the stands because of someone taunting him is completely uncalled for.  Afterall, he is THE guy who TAUNTED everyone before, during, and after the game to begin with!  His lack of composure when taunted (Quite Ironic) should cost him EVERYTHING.

You can't teach an old dog new tricks.  Period.  He had his chance with the team, on the field, and after the game.  Kick this bafoon out of Eugene, and ban him from the NCAA before I blow up!
