RE: Antonio suspended!!
NIU has a long tradition of strong grades and a good, clean Athletic program so I have confidence that my opinion on how to handle this is not needed, not welcome, and probably incorrect.

All of sports is about turning boys and girls into men and women. Because of this, I believe that the decision that is made will be in the best interest of the University, the program, and for the player.

RE: Antonio suspended!!
An eye gouge is one of those no-no moves. Like a groin shot or hair pulling. It offends the sports etiquette senses. That's where a lot of outrage comes from. 1 game really isn't enough. 3 probably is right. But it's comical to brand an entire program for an individuals action, Unless it has been a pattern.

It is ridiculous to brand a program for 1 dumb move, but even a home town paper (albeit the Sun Times) states: "It made NIU coach Rod Carey’s program look second-rate and leaves an indelible stain on what might be a very good season."

And I would bet 90 percent of those saying the kid should be locked up and NiU should disband its football program are the same people that wanted to jump off tall building when NIU went to orange bowl

Sun-Times, and this particular columnist, haven't written a single word about NIU football this season. And this is what they come up with. As usual.

Par for the course for the Chicago media. Surprised it wasn't on the front page of the Tribune this morning.

Suntimes is trash. They hardly ever have any news about NIU, but chaos sells.... right?

Yep, I'm sure Steve Greenberg, Big 10 columnist - and proponent of Northwestern and apologist for Lovie's "team" - was chomping at the bit to write that one.

Yea I was about to say the same exact thing. They don't know we exist unless there is something less than favorable to say. Must be run by an ISU grad or something.

As an Aztec alum I found that your responses to this event are about what I expected of NIU fans, given that three of my siblings are NIU alumni. No one condones the action by your player as your posts indicate. Your responses have been classy, some on Aztec Mesa were intemperate. Mr. Jones-Davis will no doubt learn from this and, fortunately Penny was not seriously hurt.

Good luck with the rest of your schedule.

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.
I agree. I thought the 1 game suspension was lite.

I think a two game suspension would be fair.

There is a lot of judgement going on all over by people who don't know exactly what happened. The eye gouging obviously happened. But, anyone who has been in a pile like that knows that the kid very likely didn't see exactly what he was doing. No doubt it was wrong, It just might not be quite as egregious as it looked on TV.

Seeing as Carey said he confessed and owned up, I doubt he claimed it was accidental.

Great to hear. Kudos to Carey and Jones-Davis for handling things the right way afterward.

Extra kudos to Penny. That's a gracious and mature attitude.
