Kick him off the team; obviously not. 1 game suspension - not enough; this is much different than a targeting penalty in the heat of a play. 2-3 games suspension sounds right, and very public. I like the idea of having him apologize to Penny, and making that public also.

It was embarrassing for me as an NIU fan. I hope the team deals with it in a thoughtful way.

Agreed, absolutely need a public apology and suspension. 3 games sounds about right.

Who is our 3rd string ILB if something happened to Pugh god forbid?

Good post and I hope that he is suspended for more than one game. I would not throw him off the team unless he is unable to clean up his act.

I do hope that NIU does not dither in making a decision and a public apology. They need to get on this and the sooner the better.

Thank God it didn't happen, but suppose bacteria from the field on the glove causes an infection, or the poke was severe enough to scratch or damage the eyeball.
Now suppose it happens to your son; would you still be saying "geez"?
Perhaps heat of the moment justifies dumb stuff to you, but the heat of the moment is when sportsmanship, character and class -- or the lack of -- are defined.

I was thinking the same thing. Davis demonstrated his "character" at the bottom of that pile.

Agree a game at most and run his *** up & down those stadium steps til he can't see. Apology is due SDST and player. NEXT.

RE: Antonio suspended!!
When our players are representing NIU they must represent with good sportsmanship and class. As a Huskie fan, I was really embarrassed & upset to see something like this happen.
Kids do stupid things and this was def one of them. Suspension of at least a couple games or 3, PUBLIC apology to SDSU player Penny and the SDSU team & to NIU and his NIU team mates for his actions is in order right away. One player doing a stupid act like this puts a bad light on the entire Huskie team.

The kid should not however have his entire future destroyed by this. He's what? a soph? Still a kid - who did a really regrettable thing.

Not cool and hopefully not a reflection on the staff or players.

Best team we have played yet- excluding that DBag- best of luck for your team the remainder of the season!
