Smart suspended three games

Oklahoma State's Marcus Smart shoved a Texas Tech fan after the two exchanged words late in Saturday night's game, and on Sunday the star guard was suspended three games for his actions. It's unclear what the fan said to Smart; the player claimed it was a racial slur, while the fan, Jeff Orr, denies that (Smart later apologized and took "full responsibility" for his actions). All of this came on the same night an Oregon coach says he was spit on by an Arizona State fan Saturday. Was Smart's punishment fair? Do fans take things too far?
