Remember alllllll the way back in March when the University of Cincinnati was still playing basketball? If your memory goes back that long, it would be jogged by the fact that Cincinnati played Ohio State in the Sweet 16. It was happy fun times for everyone involved until the final 9 minutes of the game. Then things sucked a whole lot because Ohio State outscored Cincinnati something like 75-6 and won going away. A lot of people weren't very happy at this result. I was very disappointed that the season was over. Mick Cronin took his frustration out in a different way. He cursed a lot at the officials. In fact, what he said to the officials was so bad that he was reprimanded by the NCAA. Cronin appealed because that's what people do to get rid of BS reprimands like this. Only for Mick, it did not work.
Yesterday, news broke that Mick Cronin was reprimanded by the NCAA. Over 4 months after Cincinnati had played a basketball game. The NCAA had this to say, per Koch.
“Unfortunately, Coach Cronin’s postgame actions were not consistent with the expectations that the committee has for participants in the championship,” said Jeff Hathaway, chair of the Division I Men’s Basketball Committee and director of athletics at Hofstra University. “The committee has been and will continue to be supportive of high standards of sportsmanship and fair play for all tournament participants. Anything short of this does not serve participants or fans, the championship or the sport in a positive manner.”
I pulled a lot of strings to ask Coach Cronin for comment. He said the following:
"That's some mother fucking horse shit. You hear me? Fucking horse shit. The pussy sons of bitches at the NCAA can take a fucking leap. I remember what I said during the Ohio State game and after. If the NCAA and the those officials didn't have their heads so fucking far up each other's asses, they would remember as well. Here is a joke, the NCAA. Here is another joke. How many officials does it take to screw in a light bulb? The answer is 3 because that's how many it takes to screw us on the court. If the dumb fucks made the proper calls during the game, none of this would have happened. You can't piss on my shoe and tell me it's raining. I think I heard Judge Judy say that once. Bullshit is bullshit. The NCAA and those officials are full of bullshit. Fucking cocksuckers. Hey, how did you get this number anyway? Who exactly are you? Say something mother fucker. Actually, hang up and delete this number or I'll shove that phone so far up your ass that my whole entire tiny body will get stuck inside of you. That sounded really weird. Dont' put that in the story."
Sorry, Coach Cronin, but I did. I don't actually know what comes with a reprimand, but if it's anything serious I would probably delete this post and pretend it never existed. Also, if you think Mick Cronin actually said anything after the jump, well you are a special person. If you are a woman over the age of 18, leave your number in the comments in that case.
