Blackmon, 20, was arrested at 3:45 a.m. after being pulled over for traveling at 92 mph in a 60 mph zone of I-35 North. Former OSU player Taylor Sokolosky posted a $375 bond for Blackmon, who was released at 8:06 a.m.

Should Blackmon be allowed to play this weekend at Kansas State? Columnist Jenni Carlson says Blackmon deserves to be suspended.

We may never know how much alcohol Blackmon had in his system, but even if it was a very minor amount, he should be suspended by Cowboy coaches because drinking before he got behind the wheel is only one of the dumb things he did. Driving 32 mph over the speed limit is dumb. Being out at 3:45 a.m. is dumb. Being hundreds of miles from campus on a school night is dumb.
