Watch: A Long Line Of Recent Rants, And Boeheim’s Is Just The Latest
By Nick Byerly-
(CBS Charlotte) Many coaches have taken to the podium with a heartfelt tirade, while others feel the need to display their emotions during the game.
This is just a short reminder of the rants and raves of the past six months or so, a group that now includes Hall of Fame Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim.
Southern Illinois basketball coach Barry Hinson has one of the best, remarking on his players, dog and wife in a December press conference after a loss.
Hinson also gave great detail about snipers taking players out and how his wife would use a shot-fake.
In October, Iowa State football Paul Rhoads went nuts after he thought his team was robbed at the goal line.
Few out shined Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and his remarks after an NFC title game win in January that gave new life to the words “try me.”
And just this past Saturday, we have an ejection from a coach that in most cases is as stoic as a statue.
Boeheim took to the floor late in the game against Duke when he felt a charge call wasn’t correct. With the latest in the rule changes this year in the NCAA, most of the time the call goes in favor the offensive player, but that was not the case in this one.
The bang-bang play with Syracuse star C.J. Fair and Duke star Rodney Hood ensued, so now we add Boeheim to the list of this season’s spectacles.
