It is time to remove these feral ghetto thugs from both colleges! If they can't behave like civilized people, can't meet acceptable academic standards and have sub par ACT scores they should go! Its only a kids game, get a grip!!

Just read that the "Big Bopper" Yancey Gates only got a 6 game suspension. That's absolutely unbelievable.
If Cincinnati had any morals reflecting a true University, Gates should be, at the very minimum, removed from the program. The administration should then look into expelling him from the University.
And if Xavier was to stand up and reflect their professed Jesuit values, Tyrone Holloway should be disciplined much more harshly than a 1 game suspension.
This fight was reminiscent of the ugliest incident I've ever seen in college basketball when the Minnesota Gophers attacked the Ohio State Buckeyes in 1972 during a game at Minnesota. I often wondered if Luke Witte was ever able to have children after the intentional, malicious knee to the groin he took from a Minnesota player.
If the NCAA has any guts, they will administer proper punishment to both programs to put a stop to this kind of thuggery.
