    Too Harsh???

    The NCAA has ruled that Dez Bryant will sit out the remainder of the season. Do you think the punishment is too harsh or not? Why?

    The ISU fan that wants to win on the 7th says yay NCAA, but I do think its a bit ridiculous.

    Re: Too Harsh???

    Hell, he's suspended for part of next season, also. IF he decides to hang around OSU, that is.....

    Anyway, probably is a little too rough of punishment. But we've been hosed pretty bad in the past, so join the club, OSU. I bet if he would have owned up to it to begin with he probably would have been fine.

    Re: Too Harsh???

    My opinion is that it is too harsh, but this teaches players, coaches or schools not to lie from here on out.

    Not any worse than Lucca having to sit out a year.

    Re: Too Harsh???

    That's really sad, he doesn't deserve a year. Kinda glad he won't be reinstated on the 5th in time to travel to Ames, but still, pretty crappy by the NCAA. I guess he just chose the wrong Oklahoma school to play for...

    Dez Bryant officially gone for rest of season

    Oklahoma State's Dez Bryant banned for rest of season - NCAA Football - SI.com

    I really thought that he would be back in time to play us. I guess that there is more to the story than what was originally reported.

    As you said there has got to be more to the story because from the outside looking in I feel the young man is getting screwed.

    Re: Dez Bryant officially gone for rest of season

    The NCAA sucks so much. Nothing for USC basically buying things for Reggie Bush, but Dez Bryant is booted for the season for talking to Deion Sanders.

    I feel sorry for OSU.

    There has to be more to this? The NCAA should take a beating for this if not. Then they need to give us another year for Gilstrap
