Naw, a two game suspension is much better for a guy who single handedly collapsed a guy's face forcing him to have to live with an inserted metal plate for the rest of his life.

I agree.  I haven't heard any announcement, but the word is he'll get 2-3 games.  That is a shame.  One season plus the successful completion of an anger management program should be the minimum requirement before returning to football.

Here's what the article says.

The Article said:

McDaniel, suspended since the incident, will be allowed to return to the team, but coach Phillip Fulmer announced that McDaniel will have to sit out the first two games of the season, complete community service, attend anger management counseling and abide by a curfew for the
fall semester.

There is no defense for the action that T.McDaniel took on the basketball court. A two game suspension seems like the wrong message to send to the team, university, and all the fans of UT football. That being said, there are a few things that needed to be pointed out. McDaniel is on the hook for all of the young mans medical bills. Also, for the charge to be lowered from a felony to a misdemenor, the young man had to sign off on it. He did. Tony, by many accounts from people over at UT is a good kid who did something very wrong. He has no prior record and nobody at UT had ever reported a problem concerning Tony before. I do not think Tony is a thug, but a stiffer punishment seems appropiate.

This is not a ut bashing post but the wrong message is being sent from Fullmer. He talks about cleaning up his program and how embarassed he, the players, and fans are concerning all the off season trouble. When given a chance to actually DO something about it, he resorts to using the Bobby Bowden method of punishment. Make no mistake, what McDaniel did was horriffic and premeditated. I have it from an excellent source that he told the victim that one more foul and he would be punched. I am not advocating the end of this young man's career, merely an end to his 2005 season. I would feel the same if it were a Bama player. Those that know me can tell you that I have a real distain for thuggish players or players that commit thuggish acts. Sometimes it is time to take out the trash. RTR

I have heard conflicting reports. Supposedly, McDaniel was getting hacked pretty hard by quite a few people. I've heard that he told the whole group that he would get whoever fouled him next and I have heard that he told the victim specificly that he would get him if another hack occured. It has also been mentioned that the victim was running his mouth and egging it on. None of this makes it right for McDaniel to do what he did. And please do not compare what Fulmer did to Bowden, Bobby would have never suspended him for the Florida game.

My money is on that Tony will make a sizable donation to the victim once he begins his pro career. Just a hunch

This article answers a few questions.

You're right. Bowden wouldn't have suspended him for the Florida game but he wouldn't have pulled any retroactive suspension crap like Tennessee did.  Also, my money is that Tony will be forking over tons of cash now and later through alwsuit and not in the form of any donation.
