Just thinking……

22 Jan

 

Annual rant about college hoop coaches who won’t foul with a 3 point lead. Today’s Idiot is Arkansas Coach Mike Anderson whose team went up 3 with 9 seconds remaining against Kentucky Tuesday night. They don’t foul, Kentucky hits the 3 with 2 seconds remaining, overtime. Win or lose, Coach Anderson has already earned Idiot status. I’ve yet to see a team get 3 points from shooting 2 free throws. Amazingly, it happens again at near the end of overtime. I believe Anderson becomes the first Double Idiot. He’s saved only by the failure of the offensive-minded Kentucky frontcourt which fails to box out on a desperate heave as Arkansas jams home the rebound at the OT buzzer.
