Joe Mixon – A sorry night in Norman; Tape becomes public


Amelia Molitor’s jaw was broken when a University of Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon after he punched her, causing her to fall and shatter her jaw on a table.


The “Joe Mixon” tape was made public today and we see the young man cold cock the women in question, with a right cross that knocked the female to the ground.  As she fell is also suffered a head wound as she hit the table that she had been sitting at.  The incident happened in the fall of 2014 at a local deli in Norman, Oklahoma.  Mixon was suspended for a year from the Oklahoma University football program and returned after his punishment was completed for him to play in the 2015 and 2016 seasons.  Currently the star running back is in preparation for the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans as the Sooners take on the Auburn Tigers on the night of January 2, 2017.

Comments by some want a further suspension for Mixon, as well as others question the decision of Oklahoma University President David Boren and Head Football Coach Bob Stoops in allowing the player to stay in school and participate on the team after his one year suspension.  This will not happen as the case is closed and Joe Mixon will play in the Sugar Bowl.  Sports fans that do not understand how this player can get away with slugging a woman and still be allowed to play college football at Oklahoma or any other major college can continue to disagree with the finality of the decision.  It is what it is.

It is never good for a man to smack a woman.  But if you think an eighteen year old male is always going to do what a “man” is supposed to do (walk away) you believe that Joe Mixon was a MAN the night he hit the woman. My take is that Joe Mixon was not a man, and in fact, an eigthteen year old not ready to make all the “manly” decisions of life.  Just as the woman, drunk as a skunk, put her hands on him in a physical way, including a spit into his face, quite possibly was not a “woman” at the time.  Maybe she was a immature young lady that did not understand the consequences of being high on alcohol and calling a black person the “n” word.  There is guilt for both of these two to share, but in fact, we are dealing with a couple of young people that were not given the proper training by parents that raised them.  Too bad a woman gets her face broke and too bad a young man has to take a hit in his athletic career.  Life can be a bitch.

    for my intellectual readers: concerning Joe Mixon of the Oklahoma Sooners: the human condition is always the same but the circumstances of the actions of the individual are in fact always personal as the results of said actions make their mark on humanity. Fact of the matter an immature Joe Mixon lost his composure and cold cocked a woman that didn’t understand that personal actions bring consequences.

      I believe Mixon has stated that his victim did not “call him the “N” word”. To use your pathetic argument, it was probably some young person not in control of their emotions due to their age reacting to what they had just witnessed, that is if the “N” word was uttered at all, as this is always the first defense thrown out by people of color after doing something wrong. Also, Mixon received NO punishment. He did not lose his scholarship. He was able to play out every game of his full 4 years of eligibility should he choose. Explain to me again what punishment he had to endure. I also find it intellectually dishonest to imply that if someone doesn’t agree with you, they aren’t quite as smart or enlightened as you. Mr. Boren and Mr. Stoops made their decision for one reason and one reason only. And it wasn’t to give this poor misguided child a second chance. It was to keep a star athlete at OU. Hey, they won a lot of games and made it to and won the Sugar Bowl. Looks like they made the right decision at least from the OU homers’ viewpoint. It will be interesting to see if this doesn’t have the overall effect of damaging the universities reputation as the only trend I see is that local blogs are full of Mixon defenders (probably emotional young OU people not in control of their emotions and not fully mature), while national blogs don’t have many Mixon or OU defenders (probably not “intellectual readers”).

      What price did he pay? He lost nothing. He did not lose his scholarship, years of eligibility, nor did he have to sit out any games. What did he lose?

        Cliff, if you are going to ask a question then answer it, what do you want me to say? Then you ask another question that you just answered. What do you want me to say? Do I agree he lost nothing? Well, if I am wrong and he does not get drafted and say he does but at a low round, would you say he lost something? And what about his reputation? Is that worth anything? Your mind is already made up so if you want to reply I would listen. Did you see the movie Ox-bow incident?

    heres one it looks like we agree about…..maybe its time to establish protection for women in the same way we have protection for elderly and children…..dont poke the tiger, it might bite……

    • December 20, 2016 at 4:54 pm

      what kind of protection do we really have? Especially for the unborn children that don’t see the light of day because the female in question has the right to extract and terminate the unborn child? No, the country is actually screwed up…..or FUBAR if you want my opinion Alvin.
