Today, in STFU

You’d think that hiring a strength coach who oversaw a process that led to three players going to the hospital, got suspended for a month as a result and caused the school to restrict his control over his own S&C program would be enough to make a head coach sensitive enough to avoid discussing the subject, but that’s not how Willie Taggert rolls.

He maintains that media accounts at the time mischaracterized the nature of the workouts and believes neither he nor Oderinde acted improperly.

“We know we didn’t do anything to try to hurt our kids. We’d done [the same program] everywhere we’ve been and never had a problem,” Taggart said. “I think our guys just overworked themselves and didn’t hydrate. … They were trying to impress the new coaches.”

Player shaming.  It’s what you do when you’re a dumbass head coach ineptly trying to cover his own ass.  See if those kids are willing to run through a wall for you in the future, Coach.

Sometimes, it’s really not rocket science.

Nobody said you had to have common sense to excel in college sports.

I’m sure Boston College is the only school ever to enable a knucklehead’s drug habit.

This one might be even better.

I don’t know who Dorsey’s agent was, but, jeez, dude, maybe you should have gotten to know your client a little better beforehand.

“You knock them right in the face.”

Baylor women’s basketball coach Kim Mulkey demonstrates that tone-deafness in Waco is not a gender-based affliction.

All about Mixon

Unfortunately, as great as things started with the Rose Bowl, the evening had to end with the Sugar Bowl.  The game itself was a clunker, as Auburn typically got off to a good start and then gradually disappeared.

Along the way, we were treated to an embarrassing defense of Joe Mixon by Brent Musburger.

Brent is apparently unaware of the Rule of Holes, as he went on later in the broadcast to defend his comments.

Yecch.

Meanwhile, the fans didn’t want to be left out of the fun.

Nice shit show, guys.

The art of the interview

So, Clay Travis asks Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre about other coaching jobs.  MacIntyre declines to discuss the topic.  Travis does what Travis does, with predictable results:

Travis: “Did you or your agent receive any calls about any jobs after this off-season?”

MacIntyre: “I have no comment on any of that.”

Travis: “So that means ‘yes.’”

MacIntyre: “No,  I have no comment. I really didn’t want to get into any of this. So I’ll talk to you later. Appreciate it. Bye, bye.”

Guess who got his fee fees hurt?

Travis: “Wow! Did he just hang up on us?!? That is unprecedented! Was I wrong? Did I do anything wrong there? I thought he was a fairly nice guy… he got rattled. I’m not going to ask him about the Alamo Bowl. Nobody cares about the Alamo bowl.”

MacIntyre’s mistake was assuming he was interviewing with someone who didn’t have a track record like this.  Live and learn, brother.

UPDATE: 

Never forget… with Travis, the story is always about Travis.

Today, in tone deafness

When last we saw former Baylor AD Ian McCaw in these parts, he was being hung out to dry by his ex-employer in fairly spectacular fashion.

In early 2015, Baylor’s Title IX Office first learned of the sexual assault allegation in connection with three other reports of sexual assault involving multiple football players. At the time, the Athletic Director was asked if he had any prior knowledge of an alleged gang rape within the football program. He denied having any knowledge of the alleged incident. Later in 2015, for the first time, the Athletic Director acknowledged that the student-athlete’s head coach told him about this report in 2013. The Athletic Director explained that he did not take any action, including reporting the alleged sexual assault to Judicial Affairs, because he thought the victim did not want to report the incident.[Emphasis added.]

As I posted at the time, first McCaw lied and then he tried to justify his decision to bury the complaint.  Pretty bad, eh?

Evidently not bad enough.

Not exactly the best choice of words there, Jerry, old boy.  On the other hand, it appears Art Briles may have just found his safe space.
