Accountability: Oregon Ducks LeGarrette Blount Suspended for Season after Punching Boise State Player


College of Hard Kocks, or Knock outs …

KUDOS to the Oregon Football Ducks for doing the right thing in suspending for the year LeGarrette Blount after his thug behavior after the end of Thursday’s night game with Boise State. Ducks RB LeGarrette Blount sucker punched Boise State’s Byron Hout and then carried on his antics with fans as he was escorted from the field by players, coaches and police.

 LeGarrette Blount was lucky that he was not arrested for assault. However, he is suspended for the season, but allowed to practice with the team and go to classes. Which means his college scholarship is in tact, but his college career is over.

It would appear that this was not Blounts first time behaving improperly.

This man was suspended and kicked out of the first spring practice by his coach for behavior issues. Looks like from his actions Thursday night as Oregon Ducks lost the the Boise State Broncos 19–8 on the smurf turf, Blount had learned nothing. Oregon coaches had said that  LeGarrette Blount had transformed himself into a more mature player. NOT!

Blounts apology, “That will never happen again, I will never lose my head like that again”. Well that’s for sure seeing that senior RB Blount has been suspended for the season.  

“It was just something that I shouldn’t have done. I lost my head.”

Hopefully Boise State will properly reprimand Haut as well. However,Oregon … spare us the nonsense that some how taunting is the equivalent of sucker punching someone. Like trash talking, taunting and fans using profanity does not occur every where. What does not happen everywhere is a NCAA college football player having his sucker punch get captured on jumbotron and ESPN.

What a lesson. College athletes must learn that their actions have consequences and it’s about time a program did the right thing. LeGarrette Blount went from a potential second round NFL draft pick to undraftable.

      The Boise State player showed zero class himself and needs to sit for at least a game.

      So, RB Blount will get his second second-chance? And, perhaps a third?

      I’ve run printing plants for over twenty years, and, if one of my employees punched somebody and acted like a mad baboon, he would be right out the door. Forever and ever, Amen.

      The taxpayers of Oregon are going to continue to pay for this individual’s college education. Give me a break. Show him the door.

      Another loser throwing away an education too prove what, what a shame.

      #1 Agreed.

      I do believe that the Boise State player should sit a game. Although, if the NCAA was to suspend every player that taunted and trash talked they would have no one left to play the games.

      Sadly, that is how bad it has got in college football.

      #2, well Blount will not get any second or third chance playing. The suspention basically ends his college career as he is a senior.

      I do not believe there is a pro team that would draft him being this much of a head case. Although maybe the Eagles will, they did take Vick.

      He is allowed to get an education and make some thing of his life.

      I believe; however, call it a hunch … Blount will be transferring to a non-BCS division and play, if there is some one willing to take him. There will be no other way he could play or show any team that he could rebound from this ugly incident.

      There is probably some one willing to take him, maybe.

      This guy is totally out of control. What ever happened to sportsmanship?
      We have made a huge mistake in our value system for athletics beginning at the high school level and continuing on to college. This lack of values in many of the sports programs in colleges is directly the result of the “star” status heeped on high school students. When athletics is more important than getting a good education, then we have lost our way.

      This moron should be shipped back to whatever street gang he came from
