LeGarrette Blount

Woof, what a shot. LeGarrette Blount may have a second career lined up in MMA, if this whole college football thing doesn't work out. His ability to throw a punch (and a fit) is almost unparralleled in the NCAA.

Not only did Blount drop Boise State's linebacker Byron Hout with a single, vicious right hand, but he proceeded to act up to the point that it took several staff members and security guards to get him out of the stadium.

According to ESPN:

The Pac-10 later Friday will review tape of Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount's dropping Boise State linebacker Byron Hout with a postgame punch to the jaw to determine whether Blount will be disciplined, spokesman Jim Muldoon said.

Immediately following Oregon's 19-8 loss at Boise State on Thursday night, an ESPN replay of the incident showed Hout taunting Blount as the teams converged onto the field. As a Broncos assistant coach moved to separate Hout from Blount, the Oregon senior threw a right cross that connected with Hout's right jaw. Hout went down and popped right back up.

He's probably in BIG trouble, considering the fact that he's already been suspended once by his own coach for behavioral problems in the summer.

Blount's first missteps came in the offseason when, according to The Oregonian, he was suspended by first-year Ducks coach Chip Kelly for poor attendance at team meetings and workouts.
