…if the UFL ever holds a 2nd draft. While ESPN’s Todd McShay has already declared Oregon RB LeGarette Blount “undraftable” after last-night’s nationally televised sucker punch of Boise State trash talker Byron Hout, the LA Times’ Chris Dufresne questions the decision making of debutante Ducks coach Chip Kelly.
Blount deserves a multi-game suspension and expulsion might even be warranted, but Hout should also have to sit at least one game for provocation.
You could also question why Blount, who finished with minus five yards rushing, was even in the game and in the area of the Boise bench when the final whistle sounded.
Bad as he acted, filing criminal charges against Blount would be a stretch. This was the heat of battle, he was provoked, and Boise State fans didn’t endear themselves by dropping what appeared to be F-bombs on Blount as he was being escorted off the field.
The irony here is Thursday’s game began with a ceremonial handshake of players to promote good sportsmanship.
If that was sportsmanship, wouldn’t you hate to see bad behavior?

Here’s some bad behavior for you.
This is what it is…LB was just walking off the field not bothering nobody embarrassed by his statements and on his play on National TV,-5 yards, beat bad by Idaho, did not do what he wanted to do on the field “not bothering nobody” some unprofessional, sour winner comes and hits LB and makes a statement then all hell breaks loose…the guy was already feeling down …What LB did after this was WRONG WRONG…Had it not been for the Idaho football player that did not know how to enjoy his win in a professional manner this incident would have never happened…
My advice to the Idaho player I’m sorry you got hit buy you should have been bobbing and weaving…..
Get it right – Oregon not Oregon State running back.
The reason the Boise State player was hit because he stopped Blount after the game and said” That’s an ass whipping for you nigger”. That’s why he got hit. Tell Espn to broadcast the truth which they always seem to miss.
