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

Thanks, you too! Normally I'd give congrats on your board but the AztecMesa board I tried to sign up for I never got approval to post, though I signed up a couple weeks ago.

RE: Antonio suspended!!
In the Butkus days this would have been considered a love tap. I think an even more serious problem is how players are launching at other players heads. Jim McMahon can't drive by himself because he may forget where or who he is. A big mistake by the player but I think some perspective is needed also

RE: Antonio suspended!!
Wow reading the thread on their board we're running a criminal organization with thugs. They weren't going to be happy with anything more than suspension for the season or pressing criminal charges.

The play was dirty. He got punished. sorry the next game on our schedule is Kent State. Sorry they suck.
Got news for you Buffalo isn't much better.

I think I'll be rooting for sdsu success but there are a few posters on their board who are total asshats. Looking at you Aztec Panther.

He is lucky that assault charges were not brought. That has happened a number of times in hockey and this incident meets all the requirements for assault. There is no implied consent to have your eyes attacked when helplessly lying on the ground after a play. Assault is not the case in most everything in football because of implied consent by playing the game. He would have stayed the night in San Diego and probably be fined and given some community service. I am glad that was not the case, I think NIU is handling this correctly.

Assault? Really? What's next? The Aztec player that got thrown for targeting. Should that become criminal too. I know it isn't the same thing but it's against the rules, clearly illegal, and dangerous. It was dirty and he's getting suspended so move on. I want to cheer for your team to run the table now but comments like that will make me think twice. Sdsu better win more dominantly from now on because USF is playing some good football and has the upper hand on the access bowl.

It sounds like you didn't read my entire post. I agree that it shouldn't have come to that but he did put himself in legal jeopardy as I stated - it is not part of the game as making blocks that are illegal (football rules) is. I also stated that NIU handled it correctly.

I do hope you share the same feeling about Holder

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.

Agree with what you've written including that one game seems too light. If a player failed to execute the responsibilities of his position, there's a chance he'd be benched and not see the field the next game. A lack of sportsmanship like this needed to be more than missing one game.
