On LeGarrette Blount, PSU and Bud Foster 

September, 4, 2009

I was going to lead this week's mailbag with the title hopes of the Penn State Nittany Lions, but instead it seems appropriate to begin with the LeGarrette Blount incident from last night:

From Dana in NYC: LeGarrette Blount's behavior [Thursday] night was disgusting. They need to kick him off the team -- but you know they probably won't. I'm sick of coaches who get wishy-washy with dealing with bad apples because they want to "help" the players because of what might happen to them without the coaches' guidance. It's such a crock.

I agree. The Blount meltdown overshadowed a great showing by the Boise State Broncos and really embarrassed the Oregon Ducks football program. He was completely out of control and it will be fascinating to see if first-time head coach Chip Kelly can salvage this season.
