Colorado star Travis Hunter isn’t holding a grudge against Colorado State’s Henry Blackburn.
Immediately after the play, fans called on Blackburn to be suspended.
I feel like Jay Norvell or the Mountain West Conference really needs to suspend Henry Blackburn for this.
What precedent are you setting if the only thing stopping a player from a brutal cheap shot that sends a player to the hospital is a 15-yard penalty? pic.twitter.com/1gNLI6LSdt https://t.co/B6AwWRj47w

During a Twitch stream, Hunter reacted to the play in question and doesn’t think Hunter should not be getting any hate.
According to Hunter, he feels like “Stuff like that gonna happen” in football.
“It’s football at the end of the day,” “Stuff like that gonna happen. He did what he was supposed to do. It’s football.”

Colorado State head coach Jay Norvell agrees with Hunter and said he would not punish Blackburn over the play.
“I reviewed the play, it’s a play that happens sometimes,” Norvell said.”It was a bang-bang type of a play. That’s certainly not something that we teach”
Norvell also revealed that Hunter has been getting death threats over the play.
On Henry Blackburn: "Our university is supporting him, the police department is supporting him, because of the seriousness of the threats that have come out of this. It’s just sad. It’s sad that that’s the state of the world we live in.”
