Dez Bryant

Baylor Oklahoma St

The NCAA has suspended Oklahoma St. star wide receiver Dez Bryant for the rest of the season after it was discovered that he lied to the NCAA concerning his visit to Deion Sanders’ house.  Fearing that he broke the NCAA rules, Bryant lied to the NCAA officials that he didn’t work out with Sanders or have a meal at Sanders’ home.

First off, bad move by Dez Bryant.  Lying is never good, never acceptable.  But my questions is, why was he being questioned about this in the first place?  The NCAA now monitors and questions positive male role models in their athletes lives?  Student-athletes cannot eat home-cooked meals?

I have a question, did the NCAA check on Tim Tebow and Colt McCoy’s Christian Mission?  Did they find out if someone paid for one of their meals?  Who payed for a plane ride to Phillipines that costs $1100?  I am not accusing or implying that there is foul play involved in Tebow or McCoy’s trip, but seems like a trip to the Far East would raise more red flags then a jog around a track and chicken alfredo around the dining room table.

I think the appropriate punishment should be 1 game.  You can’t lie.  The whole season?  The Head Coach, the leader of the New Mexico Football Team physically attacked one of his assistants, a felony in New Mexico.  His consequence?  He is suspended for 1 game.

The unbalance continues

    1 game.

    Agreed.

    Politics, and the light in Oklahoma being a banner school.

    Bummer for for Dez tho.

    Is Bryant as dumb as he looks ? Or is that just a prerequisite to attend Oklahoma State ? What a tool this kid is ! As for Deion Saunders what sort of advice was he going to give Bryant to begin with ? Much less be his agent.

    I guess we will find out. If Bryant ends up signing with Eugene Parker, the former agent of Sanders, then the NCAA would feel that they were on to something. The fact is that while Tebow and McCoys trip was more expensive, nobody in the Far East is lobbying to represent them as an agent or in any other matter. The kid is an idiot for lying in the first place, had he told the truth he wouldn’t have gotten into this mess.

    How dare you even question Tim Tebow, he seems to be the heir to the golden boy throne, currently held by Tom Brady. Have you not gotten the memo that nobody is allowed to say anything negative about these two.

    Well, it is about time that the hype in no hype is back. Magoo-feeling large with the Denver win-gotta love football, you get to gloat for a whole week!

    HA Mr. Brady…. you can even ask your son, I didn’t talk any trash at all. Great game, I am so thrilled that Denver is playing well I don’t want to jinx it by talking trash. Big game on Monday night, always tough playing at Qualcomm.

    Plus I figured with the Bo Sox getting swept in the same day I would give everyone a break. Seeing a lot of Celtics green around the city….

    It appears that Magoo has turned over a new leaf. On a day when the BoSox were swept and the Patriots lost to the Broncos 4 years ago, he would have hired a plane to drag a banner in the sky with a few expletives toward New England based fans….

  7. DWhite says:

    A full season suspension is definitely overkill. One game and done unless they have evidence to prove he did something else wrong besides lying.

    And Magoo, the only throne Tebow is going to have after this year comes with reading material and Febreze. Can you say Eric Crouch?
