Boise State vs. Oregon Ducks Score Tee
College Football kicked off last night with almost a dozen games. The featured game was the No. 16 Oregon Ducks vs. the No. 14 Boise State Broncos. I expected this game to be a high scoring shootout. What we got was a hard-nosed, low scoring affair. The Broncos were leading 13-0 at the half and finished the Ducks off with a 19-8 victory.

The big story coming out of the game is Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount punching Boise State Byron Hout in the face. It was a cheap shot… Hout wasn’t even looking and it came after the game was over. Hout didn’t even have his helmet on. “I just apologize to anyone watching that,” Blount said. “I just apologize to all of our fans and all of Boise’s fans. That’s something I shouldn’t have done. I lost my head.”
I can understand why Oregon players were frustrated. Their offense was horrible the entire game. The Ducks didn’t get a first down until the 3rd quarter and they only had 152 yards of total offense. I can’t imagine that’s how the Ducks wanted to start their 2009 season.
What did you think of the punch? Should the player be suspended? If so, for how long?
