LeGarrette Blount Slams Bronco, Career to the Blue Turf..

I’m sure you all saw this clip from the Thursday where Oregon Senior running back LeGarrette Blount blasted Boise State’s Byron Hout after he slapped Blount’s shoulder pad and taunted him following the game. ┬áIf you happened to miss it, check out the clip below, there are plenty of replays.

That was a shot of Mayweather proportions, quick and painful! Blount was suspended for the whole year on Friday, ending his Oregon career. He set a school record with 17 TD’s last season, but this one move may cost him his entire pro career. It’s really a shame because although I do not believe in blasting someone in the jaw after a game, both teams should not be walking off the field together. After a heated game of football, emotions are definitely off the charts. The fact that Hout was able to provoke Blount is unacceptable and it’ something the NCAA needs to look into. They are all caught up with having team handshakes before the games, but the real problems happen during and after the games. I am not excusing Blount’s behavior, but he was put into a situation where something was bound to happen. The NCAA needs to look into this issue deeper and decide if both teams should leave the field separately. If not, you may see more and more talented players’ careers crushed because of one incident.
