3 games would have been a more reasonable suspension for both James and Beard. Even though it was a spat, James still tackled/wrestled a woman to the ground, pushed her against a car and refused to take his hands off her when she requested it. That's not okay for any man to be doing unless she's physically threatening his life. Beard got raging drunk, shoved a woman around and then got his face beat in by her friends. I don't see how missing the non-con is a big stretch for the both of them.

I don't think she would have ended up in jail as you say Met. It says clearly in the documents that she grabbed his necklace after he refused to take his hands off her as she was requesting. And then he pushed her against the car before she took his keys. It also says that she didn't contact the police at all, and was in fact reluctant to talk to them when they first contacted her. She wasn't even aware the police were involved until James informed her of the fact. I couldn't find a definitive statement in the documents that identifies who contacted the police, so I'm guessing it was either the out of town guest or a neighbor.

As for Masoli, he's done as the starter no matter which route he takes. I imagine he'll probably redshirt and come back in '11. But either way, it's probably the Thomas era now.

I dunno that she would have been arrested either. Most likely she would have had he kept his cool and not escalated the situation. She damaged his personal property and would not leave his residence when he asked her to. I don't know if that outweighs his trying to escort her of his property or not. Regardless he is not free from wrong doing. He should have walked passed her, asked her to leave, and entered his home. If she didn't leave he should have called the police. He's 19, I like to think I would have reacted better than he did but I'm not so sure at that age.

I agree that a handful of games would have been more appropriate but it's not a huge deal in those two situations.

And yeah Masoli is done at Oregon, regardless if he comes back in 2011 or not.

Any bets on where Mike is coaching in 2011? I'll be shocked if he stays at ESPN for more than a year.

I dunno, he's been offered other college head coaching jobs in the past and I believe he's interviewed for NFL jobs as well (I'm brainfarting there), but he's always stayed with Oregon. Is he trying to separate himself from this current mess at Oregon? Most certainly. But I'm not so sure it's for a desire to coach, I really think he want's to be an analyst. I also think the AD position was something that was much bigger than he expected. He want's to talk and be involved in college football but I'm not so sure he really wants to coach anymore. We'll see though.

Share your Jeremiah Masoli jokes:

Why doesn't he play baseball?
Because he gets caught stealing. :-D

If Masoli and James are on a trip in the back seat of the car, who is driving?
A cop. :-D

OK, there HAVE TO be better ones than that. :-B
