    I agree that BYU let itself and it's conference down...I always wonder which BYU team is going to show up. It seems that, at their best, they can beat anybody, but at their worst, can be beaten by almost anybody!

    Being an old Duck, I think Oregon did the right thing. It is Boise State that looks craven.

    Someone said, " Do you think we should suspend everyone that talks trash ? "

    YES, from 6th grade on, every coach of every sports team should not tolerate it whatsoever. Send them home for the day, the week, the month, forever, whatever, as the severity of the behavior dictates. They may talk that way at home, in the hallways, on the street, etc., but NOT on the playing field. Period. A no-tolerance policy adhered to by all coaches everywhere just might, a tiny bit, help increase civility, surely on the athletic fields to a great degree, but hopefully elsewhere as well.

    I've been a Boise State fan ever since they upset the Sooners three years ago, but their decision not to suspend Hout leaves a sour taste in my mouth. I thought Coach Peterson had more class than that, but I guess he truly believes in the Vince Lombardi motto: "Winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing".
    I agree. Hout should have been suspended absolutely, and I think the penalty for Blount was ridiculously extreme. Give the kid a chance, he made a mistake. Suspend for 2 games, and let him try to have a life in football.

    Lombardi later always said what he actually meant was "Winning isn't everything, but making the effort to win is."

    NO, we live in a society that does NOT condone such violence. Too bad sportsmanship didn't come as dear. I would sit both of them for 5 games.
    Amen! What makes Hout's actions so bad is that his actions were premeditated, as opposed to Blount who just reacted. And Boise State coach, Chris Peterson must have sensed that what Hout said was pretty inflammatory, because he grabbed Hout as soon as he said it and before Blount punched him.

    Would you be in favor of suspending every athlete that talks trash? There would be a lot of them. If Blount trashtalked back or just walked away, nobody would ever know of Hout.
    Of course, I don't know what Hout said. That might make a difference.
