    Eric Martin suspension

    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Re: Eric Martin suspension

    My first thought was that it was just a big hit, but on the replay from another angle it looks like he was just laying out a guy who was totally removed from the play for no reason.

    I don't think it would have gotten him suspended if the NFL wasn't pushing so hard right now. I think it should have merited a flag, but not a suspension. However I think it is borderline enough that I wouldn't argue against the suspension.

    Re: Eric Martin suspension

    I'd say, he was looking to take the guy's head off.

    yes, think of it as a parting gift to Nebraska. They should suspend Martinez before this big game with Mizzou for some clerical issue too.

    I'm with you, but with that other angle, it looks so malicious. Anihilating a player who won't be part of the play is unnecessary.

    Re: Eric Martin suspension

    That should be a multiple game suspension. He left his feet and targeted the head of the osu player. In the NFL that would be a 50,000 fine.

    Re: Eric Martin suspension

    After reviewing the game tape from Nebraska's win over Oklahoma State, Big 12 Conference Commissioner Dan Beebe decided to suspend Martin.
    Don't they mean DeLoss Dodds?

    Bad hit, suspension definitely warranted.

    For the ISU game too, would be preferable.

    And yeah, that suspension is obvious.

    Dirty hit by a dirty player. His hero is probably Bob Sanders.
