Not a defense of anybody. Just a fact about drunk people in general.

Exactly. That was the only part of the tape that IMO was different than the story we were told. I thought he wound up, stepped into it, and delivered a real hay maker of a punch. That didn't happen. As you said, that punch wasn't much of anything, actually.
I've read about 50 articles on this, and watched the video a few dozen times. This is the first time I have seen ANYONE say it wasn't a vicious punch. He broke 4 bones in her face. To blame it on the table is one of the most laughable things ive ever read.

If Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson slams my face into a brick wall, is he innocent because the wall broke my face, not his arm? Give me a freaking break guys....

It's not surprising when you realize the guy is a total scumbag.

As for this hurting OU.....LMAO. It'll be gone and forgotten about, for the most part, within the next month or so. Christmas, a new president, college basketball kicking into full gear, the Super Bowl.....this won't be news worry very soon.
Man, that's great news. A bunch of stuff is happening that will distract us from this.

That isn't even an accurate analogy.

But if you hit someone in the arm and they trip and break their face on the table is it fair to say that you punched them and broke their face?
The punch looks viscious b/c of the grainy video and how quick it happened. But it wasn't that hard of a punch and it wasn't the punch that broke the face. And you can't even tell from the video if he even punched her or slapped her.

Bob is not going to keep a scum bag on the team. plain and simple. He has kicked high rate players off the team for less serious offenses.

He couldn't even use the team facilities. So yeah it is a punishment. He couldn't use the strength coaches, the weight rooms,etc. He didn't play the game he loves for a year. That is a big punishment.

IF there is video of her his hands on my neck, and her slapping and pushing while i walk away, I wouldn't be going to jail. But go ahead and ignore what the judge and lawyers have said. If anything, they both should have been charged.

There is a reason she didn't want the video released bud.

You can't fight for equality and then not expect it.

Hell, in today's world (joking, kind of) couldn't mixon just claim he is a woman

Do I agree with Joe's actions? No, not at all. I think he was in the wrong. But i also think she was in the wrong. And you can't, as a human being, expect to do what she did and not expect something to happen. What lesson are we teaching our daughters if we say it's OK if you slap and push someone, whether male or female, and expect that they shouldn't retaliate?

This is all without bringing up her past crimes as well. She was no saint before this. Especially considering her social media posts before the incident.

Hey sky, anything to say about the story pointing out that Mixon was called the n word before he dropped the gay slur?

Kind of killed your reasoning dead in the water.

So after Bob Stoops uses Joe Mixon for a few years, wins a few Big 12 championships, etc he comes out and says he would have kicked him off the team if this happened today.... and we think that's a good thing?

Not b/c he thinks it is right, but b/c of how society has changed. that is how i took it. He said repeatedly that second chances are not allowed anymore for kids in this society

It really sucks that we don't allow those in charge to make decisions on whether a guy is truly sorry and wants to change, or if he really is a bad apple and should be booted. I referenced Bob's accuracy with this in terms of past kids. Those he has given a second chance, most all have made the most of it.

You know what else if funny? Go look up the articles from jake trotter, tramel, Carlson, and ou daily from right after they got to watch the video. They ALL praised ou for how severe the penalty was. Tramel even called it just shy of capital punishment. Carlson said that after the tape is made available to the public NOBODY will question ous punishment.

Now go read their articles. Pretty damn hypocritical and it's completely cowardly and horse crao

My issue with it involves risk... He had no idea if Joe Mixon was going to have another incident, or worse. So, if he lets Joe Mixon or whoever stay at OU after doing bad things AT OU, and he does it again, now you've got real problems. Not just PR problems, but what if someone else got hurt.

When you are OU, you don't need to take risk. You just get somebody else who is good and let Mixon make amends somewhere else. If he turns out great for them, super, if he doesn't, that's their problem. He got his chance at OU, he blew it, and we are moving on.

Our entire society is based on risk... If I wreck my car, my insurance company sees me as a risk and my premiums increase, because of my own actions. If I steal from a grocery store and then apply for a job, the employer has to weigh the risk of hiring me because I proved I was capable of stealing. Sex offenders have very difficult times finding employment and places to live because people don't want to assume the risk.

Hell, the United States Coast Guard wouldn't take my friend right out of high school in the early 2000's because he had a charge against him for stealing a box of condoms while he was in high school... There are consequences for our actions, some of those consequences are severe, but many times they are associated with RISK.

Look at Sam Ukwuachu... got kicked off the Boise State football team, Baylor took him and assumed the risk, and people got hurt. The Baylor coaching staff would have rather told the story about how they took a chance on someone and they turned their life around, but instead they brought in a guy with known behavioral problems who was good at football and people got hurt. They took a risk, and got burned on it.

That is one of the reasons we pay Bob a lot of money.....to make judgement calls on stuff like this. From all accounts, even before the incident, Mixon is a pretty darn good kid. Bob met with him after the incident, and measured him up. Bob thought he could help Mixon going forward. I have zero problems with OU giving Mixon that second chance if Bob thinks he'll make good on it.

Bob has proven that when the opposite occurs.....when a kid messes up and Bob doesn't see what he needs to see, he'll boot the kid. Part of what makes OU special under Bob, imo, is that he has built a good family feeling program. I like that. Just like I liked it when Kelvin did the same for OU hoops. That has value to me.

Exactly what he was saying and it is disgusting that so many people who write and talk about sports got that so wrong. But that is the state of news and opinion journalism these days and it is even worse in sports. In news and opinion journalism, you have to look at more than one source to hopefully find the truth and in sports, have to look harder.

If I were an appellate judge, I would reverse any jury verdict in favor of women. He has a legal right to defend himself. She attacked him. It is crystal clear she attacked him. With that said, I don't think he should have hit her but the law does not require a body builder to suffer the attack of a 50lbs weakling as Mac Reynolds explained my Torts class at OU.

Anyone can play this game. I guess you are a racist because you choose to believe her story?

In reality you likely have more empathy for homosexuals and therefore accept that version of events.

A felony? How is the world is he guilty of a felony? She attacked him and he used a single punch to defend himself. Anyone that would call that a felony has lost their mind in my opinion.

Is the standard of defense going to be judged after the incident is over and one has successfully defended themselves?

I am not suggesting I think he should have hit her but in my mind that was legally justified self defense. One punch to stop an attack. He didn't jump on the ground and beat the crap out of her. He didn't kick her when she was down.

If she was a guy, is there any doubt in your mind that was a reasonable use of force?

Absolutely! I wish him well too.

I think he's making a mistake by not staying at OU one more year. I also understand why he's leaving early. If I had been in his shoes I would have said goodbye to the news media in this state two years ago.

I've said more than once that what Joe did was wrong. But that doesn't excuse the relentless pursuit of a handful of self righteous reporters who were determined to prosecute his case over and over until he left for good.

Well, mission accomplished you ......! [fill in the blank if you want] They may be heroes to some, but they're not to me.

There is no way to know if it's a mistake, b/c we don't have all of the info. He talked to his agents, who talked to the front office guys, and evidently they think he'll get drafted early enough that leaving this year makes sense.

Sometimes guys get told that and it doesn't work out. I hope that doesn't happen to Joe. If he goes anywhere from say, middle of the 3rd or earlier, it was probably the right move. I'm hoping he goes in the upper half of the 2nd round. To my Bengals. lol
