USC LB Gets Half-Game Suspension & Must Write Apology For Stomping on Bama Player’s Nuts
On Saturday, USC linebacker Jabari Ruffin did the dumbest thing you could possibly do while 40 different HD cameras are directed towards the field watching your every move, as he purposely stomped on the nuts of Alabama player Minkah Fitzpatrick, who was lying beneath him. Not only that, but he also looked back at him to make sure he got him.

On Monday, Ruffin learned his fate and it is absolutely horrific…
Just kidding. It’s a slap on the wrist.
“Coach Clay Helton announced during a teleconference Sunday that Ruffin will sit out the first half of USC’s next game, against Utah State on Saturday.
Helton will also require Ruffin to write a letter apologizing for the stomp “as a learning lesson,” Helton said.
“Jabari is a good kid that made a poor, emotional decision,” Helton said. “I am sorry as a head coach. … He is also. And I know that it will not happen again.”
“He understands that his conduct is unbecoming of a Trojan, and there will be zero tolerance moving forward,” Helton said.”
