Rants– Mike Rice Head coach Rutgers basketball for his abuse toward his players.Why it took so long for Rutgers to finally pull the plug on the out of control coach is beyond logic but if anyone thinks this is a isolated incident think again. And Rice isn’t the only coach in college doing this there are plenty of horror stories at the college level, high school and pop warner football too, of coaches who abuse yell and scream at players all at the intent of psuhing them to their limits and making them the best. But at what cost?
Rants- Auburn players who failed drug test in 2010- according to a report in USA Today At least a dozen members of Auburn’s 2010 championship team tested positive for synthetic marijuana, known popularly as “spice,” and the university decided to keep the results secret, according to an ESPN report.It’s not the crime of the century I know, but this goes back to the heart of everything with College sports, the Universities know more of what goes on their campuses than they share with the public because they wanted to keep this quiet. Maybe this is why coaches feel the need to scream and yell and act they way they do. I’m not saying that it is right but someone explain the madness better.
