Should Courtney Upshaw Have Been Suspended For More Than One Quarter For Kicking Vandy Lineman?


As an initial matter, I understand that Coach Nick Saban is our beloved Nicktator, Dark Lord of the University of Alabama Crimson Tide.  When he speaks, so it shall be written, so it shall be done.  This is a given.

However, I have read much discussion on this board as to whether or not lining up to kick that long field goal against Ole Miss was the right decision, and I've read many here opine that our mercenary overlord was wrong in that decision.

That being said, I ask this question that has certainly been asked many times already on this and other boards:  should Courtney Upshaw have been suspended for more than just one quarter for kicking that Vandy lineman (whose name seems to elude me at the moment)?

Courtney did a good job, played a really great game,” Saban said. “We have rules and things associated with our program. Courtney has been a great ambassador for the program at the University of Alabama. For tornado relief and raising money, he did a great job. He made a poor judgment. It’s just part of what we decided to do to not start him in this game.”
