In the aftermath of the Punch Heard ‘Round the College Football World, there was more than one person of the mindset that the Boise State player who touched off LeGarrette Blount‘s postgame meltdown — Byron Hout — should be suspended for taunting.
While head coach Chris Petersen is not pleased with his player’s actions, he will not suspend the player.
Instead, the Idaho Statesman is reporting, Haut will be disciplined internally.
“We’re not good with it,” Petersen said. “It always takes two to tangle. Those are things we preach about every day around here. We just need to keep our mouths closed … and let our play speak for itself.
“I’m sure (Blount) would give his right arm to take that whole thing back, how it looks. Byron’s mistake wasn’t as extreme as LeGarrette’s, but he was still wrong.”
There is no word yet on what type of penalty Blount will face from Oregon for his punch to Hout’s jaw.
