RE: Antonio suspended!!
Kid made a bad mistake but he is a kid and shouldn't be condemned forever. A lot of bad things happen at the bottom of those piles and I've seen much nastier. Not condoning it but he will hopefully learn from the embarrassment. If not, then he needs to go.

Antonio suspended!!
I like what Carey said, but IMHO the suspension should be a little longer - together with the apology.

Dumb stuff sometimes happens in the heat of the moment.

Exactly. This is an opportunity for him to grow up. Not destroy his life.

"Destroy his life" lol

Should have been more than 1 game if it was something not condoned by coaches.

“After seeing the video of the incident that occurred during a kickoff of last night’s game at San Diego State, I have suspended linebacker Antonio Jones-Davis for the upcoming game versus Kent State (Oct. 7).

“Antonio’s action is not indicative of his character, nor that of our players or coaching staff, and does not reflect the values upon which our program has been built.

“Last night’s game was extremely hard-fought, it was emotional and it was a chippy game which at times crossed the line on both sides as evidenced by the number of post-play penalties. However, Antonio’s action in that emotional moment was completely unacceptable, and he understands that he must face the consequences.

“In speaking to Antonio today, he has taken full responsibility for his actions and voiced to me his disappointment in himself that he embarrassed the university and the football program.

“On behalf of our football program, I want to apologize to San Diego State, Coach Long and SDSU player Rashaad Penny. Antonio and I will be reaching out personally to them in the near future.

“I’m confident Antonio, and our entire team, will learn from this incident and be better going forward.”

Antonio also committed this act on NATIONAL TV and the media has jumped all over it. He will forever be known as a dirty player. His reputation is really tarnished. Losing one's reputation is a huge punishment & loss. It is all so stupid - dumb move by a kid.

RE: Antonio suspended!!
I sent Sean Frasier an email earlier today asking that NIU act swiftly to apologize to SDSU and Mr. Penny and discipline Jones Davis. In my email I suggested a two to three game suspension.

One game seems too light and throwing him off the team would have been too heavy handed.

I don't know the young man and the coaches and Sean Frasier do. Perhaps he is a good person that made an incredibly stupid mistake. I do hope that he learns and grows from the experience. I also hope that there are some additional consequences that we might not know about or need to know about.

Right now I am embarrassed and ashamed of the program. We can get through this but it will take time to regain our credibility and respect.

Hopefully he will make amends moving forward. LaGarrett Blount overcame his incident at Boise State and Antonio is only a sophomore so he has the time to redeem himself and his character. I did over react calling for his dismissal but I still feel it should have been a multi game suspension but I hope he realizes the backlash he has brought onto our program.
