How Do You Solve A Problem Like LeGarrette Blount?

It was a decent game on the Smurf Turf in Boise State, although it was quite a sloppy victory for the Broncos.

But the real action took place after the game, as Oregon Ducks star running back LeGarrette Blount punched Boise State defender Byron Hout.

Now, Hout did push Blount in the shoulder and shouted something in his face.

But I'm sorry. Unless he trashed your momma or another close female relative, you don't punch a player in the face.

Hell, even if he did trash talk a female relative, you just simply cannot do that.

Things also began to escalate further as Blount had to be restrained by Boise Stadium event staff and local police as he started to charge at some of the fans sitting near the players tunnel.

I think that new head coach Chip Kelly has to have a long, long conversation with Blount. Considering that Blount was kicked out of practice earlier this year, I think Blount might be sitting out some more.

Because the behavior that Blount exhibited Thursday night was immature and unconscionable.
