Hout might still be feeling the effects of some sweet chin music delivered by Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount, who didn’t take too kindly to some post-game taunting by the Boise sophomore.
After a 19-8 win for his school on Thursday, Hout got Blount’s attention and appeared to make a snarky comment or two to the hotheaded senior. Next thing he knew, he was being picked up off the turf after a perfectly executed right cross. Blount even hit his own teammate!
Then, there’s the issue of him trying to get at a bunch of “not so tough after all” college kids heckling him from the bleachers on his way to the dressing room.
I hope Blount enjoyed his little moment there though, because it cost him his final season of college ball!
Fanhouse reports Oregon is suspending him for the remainder of the 2009 season, though he remains on scholarship and still gets to practice.
Sure it was a dirty play - but who doesn’t enjoy watching a mouthy little hot shot get shut up?
According to ESPN, Blount called up Boise State coach Chris Petersen to say sorry and was also able to apologize directly to Hout. Unless he transfer's to division two or three though, his college career is over.
With all his newfound free time, maybe Blount can take up boxing!
