Re. Baxter: Hello Kiffin's "Severe Punishment" & Free Trip To Hawaii

I am reading ESPN the morning paper and there is this quote from Lane Kiffin where he talks about the one game suspension for Dillon Baxter:

"I think this is an extremely strong message and a very severe punishment for a player that may potentially be the most-skilled player on our whole roster," Kiffin said.

One game is a "very severe punishment"?  Whats the punishment for a felony? Two games? However, I started thinking about it, and for Baxter to miss out on a trip to Hawaii would be more than an insignificant penalty. However it turns out , Kiffin has not yet determined whether, notwithstanding the "very severe punishment", Baxter might still end up going to HawaiI:  

"I don't know that. I'm still trying to figure that out," Kiffin said. "There are reasons for him to go, I think, so that he sees what he misses and has that feeling and it hurts more."


It "hurts more" for him to get a free trip to Hawaii and watch the game on the sidelines? What kind of logic is that?

How about having him stay home and watch the game on ESPN? If someone wants to punish me by sending me to Hawaii for free and making me watch a college football game, then please go ahead and punish me. Hell, go ahead and punish my entire family.

Baxter has not even played one game, and he has already 1) made improper accusations that caused the athletic department to have to send out letters of apology and 2) been suspended for his first game. He is truly a worthy successor to Reggie  Bush at the tailback position.
