OSU's Marcus Smart deserves the three game suspension he got for pushing a Texas Tech fan, but the bigger problem, in my opinion, is fans acting like jerks at athletic events, insulting the athletes.

Here's what you had to say...

Quinnton first:

"I rarely agree with you on these, but you hit the nail on the head with this one."

Thanks, I think.

Catherine writes:

"As usual, Kelly, you bring common sense to this fiasco. Jeff Orr is a middle aged bully who probably couldn't run the length of the court!"

Marie writes:

"..adults seem to become public Jr Hi brats at sporting events. I can't imagine what their family's life is like."

From Neal:

"It's very difficult not to get emotional during a tough game and some wannabe is in your face."

But Kristi asks:

"Has Smart had ANY discipline at all while at OSU?

Ridiculously spoiled and undisciplined."

Keith writes:

"..you said it well and you would have said the same if it had been an OU player as well... way to stay fair.. thanks Kelly."

Sonya says:

"Not only the athlete but their parents as well listening to adults calling their kid names."

Matt says of over zealous fans:

"It sure shows a lack of class when you start harassing the players."

And finally, I like this from Charlie:

"There is a fine line between cheering for your team and being a bully.

As an adult I am gonna stand with Marcus and other collegiate kids as if they are my own!"
