I have no idea why Smart reacted the way he did. But if you watch the replay you can see the fan mouth "I'm sorry" before Smart went after him. Again, not defending him. But something went down that we couldn't see or hear.

Ford should be fired just for the fact he didn't send Smart to the locker room. He has no control of this team!

I am very disappointed. This is not the way I want the players representing my alma mater to act. I am afraid that this coaching staff can't properly discipline this team. I am disappointed, as I expected more of Coach Ford. I bleed orange, but I am not proud right now.

Should have sent him immediately to the locker room. Classless act by Smart and poor decision by Ford to let him stay on the bench.

It looked like Smart mouthed "racist" and the fan was gone by the end of the game. Makes me think the fan did something to get ejected too. Not that Smart should have pushed him, but this fan may have crossed a line. If he didn't, that's all the more pathetic on Smart.

The look on the guy's face showed guilt and you can read his lips as they say "I'm sorry about that."

So maybe the woman or the man said something offensive to Smart and he lost his cool. Not a good look on him or OSU at all.

I don't care if the fan said your mother wears combat boots, there is no excuse for what Smart did. He better hope the middle aged man he pushed doesn't file assault charges on him because the whole world saw it. His behavior when the game was over wasn't much better when he still wanted to fight.

Doesn't matter what the fan said. It doesn't justify smarts reaction. Was the fan wrong? Absolutely. But a player can never lose his cool and shove a fan, especially when the game is still on the line
