The kid from Oregon should be more concerned that his team looked like crap and he carried the ball eight times for -5 yards...
"In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"
Strange place to direct sympathies if you ask me.

I'm not saying what Blount did wasn't wrong. I'm just saying that Joe Blow wasn't right either.
Best advice my dad ever gave me was don't start it if you're not willing to finish it.
Blount's season should be over.
And if I was on the BSU coaching staff, I'd tell Hout that when he's done picking his teeth up off the blue turf, he'd better find himself a very good pair of running shoes and a very reliable alarm clock.
Blount should be gone. My alma mater Miami University had this happen after a game a few years back, but one of our coaches drilled an idiot fan talking trash to him on the field. I was never more embarassed for Miami than I was then. He was justifiably fired. Why are people always unable to just walk away when taunted?

I had a Woody Hayes flashback myself. Although that wasn't 50 years ago.
When all is said and done more is said than done.
Last year BSU had a pretty bad cheap shot on Oregon's QB. Tensions were high all week long, BSU knowing that a BCS berth was on the line, and Oregon knowing that a championship season was on the line. There was talk going back and forth about the game ever since college football came to the fore front. Most major sporting sites pimped the game as one of the games of the year.
Fast forward to the end of the game. Blount after a disappointing game is tapped on the shoulder and taunted as he walks off the field. I am sure that emotions and tensions are high at that point. It is just too difficult to turn that intensity off right after a game ends. IMO Blount punching that BSU guy shouldn't have happened, but I have little problem with it. The BSU player deserved it, especially after he taunted the player after a close loss.
What happened afterward is where I blame Blount. Him going after the fans and whoever else was in the area was wrong, and he should be punished for that. IMO whatever suspension Blount gets, Hout should get almost the same amount of time. While he didn't throw the punch, he instigated the entire fracas.
Boise State going undefeated from this point on doesn't NECESSARILY mean they should be awarded a BCS bowl bid.
They don't have a game remaining versus anyone in the top 45.
