We've likely seen the last of Dez Bryant in college football

Give the NCAA credit for one thing. The decision to suspend Dez Bryant for one calendar year likely means we'll never see him play for Oklahoma State again.
With Bryant a likely top-10 pick in April's NFL draft, it would make sense for him to declare. That's why I think we'll see him picking up the hat of whatever team picks him in April rather than ever wearing the orange and white of Oklahoma State.
So much for a kinder, gentler NCAA. Its decision in this one basically threw the book at Bryant.
Obviously, Bryant knew he made a bad mistake when he admitted to the NCAA that he had about his association with Deion Sanders.
Lying is never a smart thing to do, especially when you are talking with the NCAA. I bet that Bryant's tale will be a cautionary one for athletes everywhere in the future.
And it baffles me that LeGarrette Blount could come back and practice with Oregon while Bryant's college career is over.
