    This to me is exactly like LaGarrett Blount's punch this past football season. One game is a ******* joke. She should be out indefinitely; at least until the dance. If it ends up one game it wouldn't surprise me because Baylor athletics are a joke to begin with.

    The difference between this and Blount is what he did after the punch. I agree one game is BS but at least she didn't have to be escorted by cops.

    No place for it in sports. The Big 12 and NCAA need to put their foot down and suspend this thug.
     
  4. (random note) i just saw that bud light commercial where the guys talk like t-pain, thats a great commercial.

    I wonder what will happen if someone punches her and this person only gets 1 game suspension. It's a joke

    I expect wbb fans all over the big 12 to bust out "BRITTANY SMASH!" chants at Griner next year. Hilton faithful, get on this.

    I'd suspend her for the rest of the season. Since she's one of the bigger names in the college game, I doubt they let her miss the NCAA's.

    That was a pretty vicious punch.

    One game is the punishment mandated by the NCAA, but the rules say the conference and/or school can add more to it, so the Big XII is looking into adding more. My guess is you aren't going to see her on the court until December at the earliest.

    Doug Gotlieb was just saying that it should only be one game and if she does it again then it's a season suspension.
    That rule is bad, because if I really wanted to punch someone, 1 game suspension only would be worth it to me (unless it's a very important game). I hope that girl (who has a broken nose btw) sucker punches Griner next season, and breaks her nose.

    She should be out the rest of the season. One game or two, is an absolute joke.

    The guy from Oregon State running back got a season suspension for what he did and football has a 12 game season. She should get suspended the rest of the season.

    I don't want to pull an Imus but those Baylor women are I'll put it politely: strong and intense looking.

    Could the gal from Tech press charges for assault or willful injury if she does have a broken nose? Anyone remember Kermit Washington KO'ing Rudy Tomjanovich?

    Must be 2 threads going. Yeah, I agree. But then again when has the ncaa ever been consistent. Well other than consistently screwing ISU.

    If this was men's BB I bet you that player gets at least 5 games if not more. WOW! Hopefully the NCAA cracks down and adds to the suspension
