Congratulations to Boise State, you showed you were the much better team tonight, no questions asked... I am a Ducks fan and feel completely embarrassed for the end of game outburst by Blount. Regardless of his potential, I say the Ducks drop him and move forward.

Blount should be punished no doubt about it. But, the full video (there's a more extended version out there on Youtube) shows the Bronco pushing his shoulder and starting the talk. I think that is a little much as well.

Then it appears that the BSU fan in the crowd calls him the N word. Am I wrong?

With regard to Blount's last altercation with the fans, I also noticed the same thing...it looked like the tallish fan called him a short word...we can only hope it wasn't the N word, but it very well could have been. If that is the case, what a sad state of affairs. Blount going apeshit. Racist rednecks. We're gonna hear a lot more about this, I suspect. I bet it will be all over the place tomorrow. Its so sad - for Blount, the fans, and everybody who saw the punch on TV.

What is especially sad, is that this could end Blount's career, and I wouldn't wish that on any of these young people who work so hard to play this game. I heard that family issues had Blount out of camp for a long time. Rumor also has it that he had been punished for breaking team rules. I think his shot at the NFL might have gone up in smoke. What a lesson. Yow.

Thanks for pointing out the other video, wheaton4prez and TyAdCo. I just added it. Hout clearly shares the blame here. The second video shows the fans.

I don't care what Hout did, you don't throw a punch. Blount should be gone, period.

I am very ashamed of my team right now.

Jay Koester

Sorry, Blount, there aren't any excuses for a sucker punch and going after fans. Fans yell mess all day long; you have to deal with it. Blount endangered his whole team out there. Can't believe I just heard Brent Musberger say he deserves only a two-game suspension. He needs to be gone.

Thomas Jones

This guy was in the heat of battle with his adrenaline flowing a thousand miles an hour...this stuff happens, especially with competitors...will leave this up to the coaches.

ive been working SEC sidelines for 32yrs..tomorrow will start my 33rd yr and i can tell you what they say to each other before during and after EVERY play will curl your hair. NOTHING that is said..EVER warrants a punch..EVER..NOTHING!!!!!!!! blount got exactly what he should have gotten! am i wrong but didnt blount say that boise deserved an a$$ whoopin? ill bet the boise player referred to blounts statement when he tapped his shoulder.. for those panty wipes who say the touching deserved a punch then you dont understand what goes on on the field after the game...

Howard Stern

Definitely deserves the suspension, an act which crossed the line and could have caused a near state of riot.

However, Boise St. dude got pwned!

sportif

If someone yelled a racial slur to Blount, someone should point that out because that would somewhat explain Blount's intense reaction.
