    Well it's a bit hard to tell what provoked the incident, he will be suspended for quite a bit I assume.

    Why the women, looked like he pushed the older guy. OK St has had a disappointing season so far and Smart hasn't handled it well.

    The rest of the season seems a bit harsh, but no doubt there is a suspension coming. Without knowing what the fan said, it just seems like this kid is unraveling as this season has not gone as he expected, both for himself and the team. By all accounts a good kid and the decision to come back to school was admirable. But he seems to be wound incredibly tight these last 2 weeks and you've got to wonder what the hell is going on in his head.

    Equivalent to hitting a woman, you just can not do it, regardless of what was said. In all my years of watching collegiate athletics I have never seen this. A precedent has to be set and I do expect a multi-game suspension. Deservedly so.

    Ask anyone in the Big 12 and they will tell you Tech fans are the worst fans anywhere. I will bet that this guy said something beyond the pale or something happened prior. Doesn't excuse his behavior , just saying if this was happening anywhere it was gonna be Lubbock .

    He deserves to be gone for the rest of the reason. Regardless of what was said he should know better.

    Smart is a thug. He's shown it to us a few times this year the media just ignored him trying to start fights all the time. Get him off the court.

    Smart? Not so smart. But still, every Big 12 school outside of TTU should ban that fan from walking in their arena. Just one look at what he did in that game against A&M is enough.

    Dude, please stop using the word "thug" loosely like that. People who do that are ignorant IMHO. Do you really know what a thug is? I can assure you it is not Smart because he wouldn't have time to be in college let alone play D1 basketball. With that said, Smart should not have pushed that fan but complained to the refs. There are multiple rumors going around that the fan called him the "n" word or told him "to go back to Africa." Why don't we get the whole story first before jumping to conclusions about whether somebody is a "thug" or not.

    Would like to hear both sides of the story first. If he did, in fact, say anything rascist, I wouldn't blame him at all. Screw that... Ironically, I just watched 42. I hope that's not the case though. But really, what else would make him go off like that? "You suck"? LOL This is going to get interesting.

    Regardless of what was said, this can't happen. Innocent people can get hurt that had nothing to do with it had it escalated. I get the anger that would be associated with that word if it was said but he's got to control it. In the end, it's just a word.

    thug
    THəg/
    noun
    1. 1.
      a violent person, esp. a criminal.
      synonyms:ruffian, hooligan, vandal, hoodlum, gangster, villain, criminal; More

      I'd say his actions could define him as a thug. He did, by law, assault this man. He may not normally be a thug, but he sure acted like one in this instance.

    I think a 2-game suspension would be sufficient. He shoved the guy; he didn't punch him or do anything likely to cause injury.

    This kind of (fill in the blank) pisses me off. He's 19 years old..he's under a microscope, I understand that. The guy called him the N-word and told him to go back to Africa.. A grown ass man. Call him a thug if you wan I guess
