Idaho LB Robinson reprimanded for punch

Robinson was ejected from Saturday's game for unnecessary roughness after the Spartans scored a touchdown in the first half.

Benson said Robinson's actions violate the WAC's sportsmanship code and will not be tolerated. Benson said any future problems could result in a one-game suspension.

Players throwing punches during or after games has become an issue in the wake of Oregon's LeGarrette Blount landing a blow to the chin of Boise State player Byron Hout last month. Blount was ultimately suspended for the season for throwing the punch at the end of the game.
