I'm not disturbed nor offended by this at all. I saw this live and I'm actually glad he did it. That guy from the other team got what he deserved, talking a gang of feces like that to the opposition after a tough tough loss. Him and that stupid smile. Wish more people were talking about how this never would've happened if that bastard showed good sportsmanship himself.
School: Blount's actions 'reprehensible'
The Pac-10 later Friday will review tape of Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount's dropping Boise State linebacker Byron Hout with a postgame punch to the jaw to determine whether Blount will be disciplined, spokesman Jim Muldoon said.
Immediately following Oregon's 19-8 loss at Boise State on Thursday night, an ESPN replay of the incident showed Hout taunting Blount as the teams converged onto the field. As a Broncos assistant coach moved to separate Hout from Blount, the Oregon senior threw a right cross that connected with Hout's right jaw. Hout went down and popped right back up.
First-year Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott is flying in from Boise, where he witnessed the incident firsthand. While Muldoon said Oregon could take action, he believes the ultimate punishment to be a conference matter.
Oregon University president Richard Lariviere calling Blount's behavior "reprehensible" in a statement Friday.
"We do not and will not tolerate the actions that were taken by our player. Oregon's loyal fans expect and deserve better," Lariviere said. "The University of Oregon Athletics Department is reviewing the situation and will take appropriate action, reflecting the seriousness of the player's behavior."

But you know what, trash talking is really part of the game, its the bad part of the game, but it still happens all the time. It was inexcusable that Blount punched the guy. Unless the guy was saying stuff about his family or race played a part, then by all means punch him. But other then that, nothing should have made him react that way.
What a punch though, at least he made it count. haha
Also poor job by the operators of the scoreboard at Boise. Why show the clip over and over to get the fans riled up? That was stupid.

Although neither Hout or Boise State University have acknowledged what Hout said during his taunt, Boise State insiders say that he asked how one of Blount's dead relatives was.

Yes he should have been suspended too.
Its crazy how coaches, media and fans amp these guys up, expect them to go out and tear the other team apart, criticize them when they are not aggressive enough, then punish them when they "don't shut it down" fast enough.
This was a PR move by the coach,school, and NCAA.
If it wasn't caught on ESPISSN TV, Blount would be still playin............. IMO
