Chris Owusu lowers his body and head as a receiver.

Bumped - P

Larry Scott needs to apologize for the 1/2 game suspension handed down to TJ McDonald. In the game between Stanford and Oregon, the exact same Stanford Receiver was involved with the exact same penalty in the exact same circumstances that occurred in the USC v. Stanford game.

In the Oregon v. Stanford game being broadcast on ABC-ESPN, Chris Owusu had to be taken by ambulance from the game after Owusu was involved in helmet-to-helmet contact after receiving a throw. The Oregon DB was called for personal foul and Oregon was assigned a penalty from the site of the foul

Owusu on replay from BOTH the USC v. Stanford AND the Oregon v. Stanford games is seen to lower his shoulders and LEADS WITH HIS HELMET INTO the collision. The DB's in both instances were going for the chest of the receiver, but it is OWUSU who lowers HIS HELMET and SHOULDERS and TORSO into the tackle.

In the case of TJ McDonald, TJ was clearly diving for the middle chest and it is OWUSU who lowers his body as he was receiving the ball. Yet, did any coaches speak with Owusu about the fact that he lowers his chest and helmet INTO a tackle? It is Owusu who lowers his body as a receiver.

Now, will Larry Scott also penalize the Oregon backfield for a 1/2 game with a penalty like TJ McDonald? If Scott does not, Scott will owe TJ McDonald an apologize and should clarify the discriminatory actions between how TJ was treated versus how Owusu was apparently NOT coached to lead with his helmet and shoulders

It is really sad that Owusu is now going to a hospital and that no party in either Stanford's team coaching or PAC-12 did anything about Owusu's play style.
I respectfully submit to this board that Mr. Owusu would not have been so injured today if he had also adjusted his play style such that he did not lead with his head and shoulders into tackles. I hope that Owusu is okay, but I will not accept the bias interpretation of hits by Larry Scott at this point.

Owusu was involved in several of these plays and it is clear that when multiple teams have multiple DB's who do the same thing, that the issue is NOT the DB (i.e. the issue was not TJ's playing style) but instead how Mr. Owusu was receiving the passes and then lowering his body for the hit on the defensive player
