Limas Sweed

Thankfully [tag]Limas Sweed[/tag] will not be receiving a suspension from [tag]Mack Brown[/tag] or the Big 12 from the punch he threw in the first half of this past weekend’s Baylor game. The incident came when Limas got tangled up with Baylor cornerback Anthony Arline, the two argued, and Limas fired back with a punch. Sweed did receive a personal foul 15 yard penalty, but that is all he will face.

“There was a lot of mouthing and a lot of pushing, and I didn’t like the way he responded at all,” Brown said of Sweed’s actions, which resulted in a personal foul. “I thought the call was fair, and I told him that’s not who we are and we’re not going to put up with it.”

It seems Mack has learned a lesson after suspending Tarell Brown before the Ohio State game. Don’t sit down your best player before a big game against a Top 25 ranked opponent. Besides, there is plenty of time to lecture him during the offseason.

    Obviously I’m a gigantic homer, but I thought it was more of an open handed shove to the face. Looked like something that probably happens on every play in the interior line.

    For that I think you run the hell out of him during practice, don’t think it’s worth of a suspension.

    Sweed should not have done that. That is not what our program is about.
