Oregon Starting TE Suspended, Others Disciplined For Roles in Snowball Fight Gone Wrong

From ESPN:

Oregon has suspended starting tight end Pharaoh Brown for the Valero Alamo Bowl for his role in a snowball fight.

Unidentified players reportedly organized the snowball fight and more than 100 students participated.

According to a video that went viral Monday, the group stopped several cars and pelted them with snowballs and dumped containers of snow on windshields. In one case, a driver who got out of his car -- identified by KATU-TV as former professor Sherwin Simmons -- was hit repeatedly and had a large container of snow thrown on him through the driver's side door.

The words don't really do the video justice. It sounds like juvenile hijinks until you see these idiots were impeding traffic on public roads. (Not to mention, filming it/letting themselves be filmed while they did it.)

Things have soured on the Oregon Ducks in 2013. They carried the #2 flag for most of the year before losing two games, their other TE, former five-star Colt Lyerla left the school (and was subsequently arrested on cocaine charges); former players called out their fans; they're going to the Alamo Bowl when some thought they would get a BCS bid and now this.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
