Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon “not reporting at this time”

Joe Mixon

As a legal investigation continues to cloud the future of Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon, the university has issued a statement stating the five-stare Class of 2014 addition is not currently reporting to team activities. That is about as close as we have gotten to any word of a possible indefinite suspension for the talented running back expected to contribute right away for the Sooners.

Mixon was reportedly involved in a serious altercation over the weekend, with a 20-year old female reportedly being the other party involved and injured in the incident in question. Mixon’s attorney has stated his client’s innocence, but police continue to work the investigation to determine the next steps. The timeline for the police investigation is unknown just yet, but is expected to continue into next week and perhaps longer.

It is typical for schools to indefinitely suspend players tied to any ongoing legal investigations, so it was probably only a matter of time before Oklahoma released this type of statement, with summer camps set to open.

    The only “reporting” he should be doing it to jail.

    Hope OU does the right thing.

    I’m not an OU fan at all but…How about letting this play out before judging this kid? He hasn’t been charged with anything and police are slow to sort this mess out, meaning involvement is yet to be determined. At this point Mixon’s side claims he did nothing and the victim says it was him that threw a punch. If he did commit any crime here I’m all for ripping into him for hitting a girl, but I’m just not sure what to think here yet with the lack of facts coming out

    I’m with mattacc31. Why will take awhile longer?

    Either he hit you or he didn’t. Sounds like she might be having second thoughts about her story.

    Looking at Oklahoma forums, seems like the alleged victim is bit on crazy side with multiple arrests in her history. The child (Mixon) could be the victim in this case.

    Most of you were saying the same exact thing about Frank Shannon a couple months ago before all charges were dropped because he hadn’t done anything wrong. Try using a little patience people

    mattacc31 — Whether this results in a criminal prosecution or not, is the issue. Further, it shouldn’t be the issue because are we going to set the floor so low in college football that a person actually has to commit a criminal offense before they should be booted or suspended? No the issue here is that he beat the hell out of a woman almost half his size. Sent her to the hospital with four broken facial where she had to undergo a long surgical procedure. Unless she was attacking him with a deadly weapon that is not justifiable IMO. Period.

    … apologies for the poor grammar in the 7:24 am post. Wish CFT had a way to edit once you’ve submitted a post. :P

    The whole thing was caught on a surveillance video which the cops have no doubt seen about 1,000 times at this point, as well as the DA. Mixon cooperated in talking to the cops. His lawyer has asked that charges be brought against the girl (of course, this is his lawyer). The point being, if they really thought it was NOT self defense, he would have been charged Monday at the latest. She purportedly slapped him, spit in his face, and called him the “N-word” (she’s white by the way). I bet he’s cleared before the weekend.

    Greenwave81: I respectfully disagree. Self defense, in my opinion and assuming it was, is gender-neutral. If she was a man “half his size” who slapped, spit, and called him a racially derogatory name, one punch to the face (even if a good punch) would not raise many eyebrows.

    I don’t know whether it was self defense or not. I do know, however, that I’m not going to jump all over this kid until I know all of the facts.

    Thug Life. Heard this kids parents would accept nothing less than 5,000 per official visit.

    Apparently calling someone a n***er is license to break a woman’s face.

    Duly noted.

    Getting slapped and spit on, which you willfully ignored, is a reason to punch someone in the face depending on the circumstances. Circumstances none of us know in detail. If the one lawful punch happens to break the aggressor’s face, that was a risk the he or she chose to take.

    I spent years in the club business. Biker bars, redneck joints, strip clubs, college night clubs etc. I have had men hit me and responded with no violence or a palm slap. and I’ve had women hit me and responded the same and responded with harsher violence. where I’m going with this is your reaction to a person hitting you is a reflex, if you feel threatened you react stronger than an attack that’s not threatening. you have a fraction of a second to define that reaction. If he hit her once( very possible to break four bones with a single punch) than he deserves to be heard.
