Play until you hear the whistle.
Play hard until you hear the whistle.
See what you hit.
Sprint to the ball.
Players are taught these lessons from the time they get their first grass stain.
How can the WAC penalize a player for playing the game the right way.
Would Rogers get penalized for the crack back blindside block if 17 was knocked down. I don't think so........
The WAC is WACKED!!

BAD CALL!
Keep Playing Hard...The Old Dawgs are Proud of the EFFORT!

This was sent to me by someone who lives in Boise. see below...

It is a big story up here. The community is divided into two categories.

1) People who think he should be suspended consisting of:

People who hate BSU.
People who don’t like football.
People that wish football was more like ballet.
People who never played football.
People who played but were kickers, soft receivers or quarterbacks.

2) People who don’t think he should have been suspended consisting of:

True football fans.
People who hate all of the people in category 1 above.

I am so sick of people trying to change the sport I love. If you think it is too violent, then don’t watch it, don’t play it, and certainly don’t preach about how the rules should be changed or how they should be interpreted so that anytime anyone gets hit too hard, they should be penalized or suspended.

I wish the "staff reporters" on this story would have interviewed Coach Peterson or maybe even Venable or Rodgers. Venable WAS PLAYING FOOTBALL! Look at the video. This article is very one sided.
