Oregon's Pharaoh Brown suspended for Alamo Bowl because of snow ball fight

Oregon tight end Pharaoh Brown has been suspended for the Alamo Bowl because of the role he played in an on campus snow ball fight. Numerous students and players put on a snow ball battle on campus including throwing snowballs at cars trying to drive by.

From the Oregonian:

Oregon starting tight end Pharaoh Brown has been suspended for the Alamo Bowl for his role in a viral video that showed University of Oregon students — including several football players — pelting cars and drivers with snowballs Friday, two university sources said.

The suspension was made by coach Mark Helfrich on Sunday after the coach spoke with drivers involved and apologized on behalf of his team, one source said. He also set up a meeting for players and a driver caught on video to meet in person.

Other unidentified players present in the video have not been suspended for the bowl game but have been disciplined internally by the UO football team, the second source said. The source left open the possibility that others could face discipline.

The snow ball fight didn’t seem to be that out of hand all things considered. There was some dumping of snow on wind shields to block the view of driver and throwing a bucket of snow at the driver when the door opened.

Still, the students should have let the car pass before resuming the snow ball battle.
