Re: ACC Calls Out the A10

These follow up comments are worse in my opinion. Obviously, he doesn't admit that he was wrong, he's playing the victim card, and "forgetting" the controversial part of what he said. Now, it's righteous indignation. What a self absorbed dicknose. He bitches about being called "all these things" yet all his criticism was couched with the idea it's okay to stand up for your league but no reason to take uninformed pot shots. He was called an idiot, not for standing up for the ACC, but for being an idiot. He doesn't get that. My opinion of him has gone way down.

Re: ACC Calls Out the A10

Btw, don't get the SMU comparison FQ. Yeah, you can make a more logical case for their exclusion but not sure them or their league is much different than ours (regardless of the fact they play football). And I'm certain based on K's comments he has no idea how selections are made or what being on the bubble is about.

Also, anybody else feel like his "low-level" remark is some confusion/misquote about Shaka's much more dignified response?

Re: ACC Calls Out the A10

It is amazing how someone who by all accounts is a smart guy can be so stupid. Did any reporter explain to him that the issue was his denigrating a conference that should be lauded?

Oh... and earlier Chris Mannix filling in for Dan Patrick, said something like the A10's no ACC or SEC this year, when talking about Dayton's success. Stick to the NBA Chris.

If I'm not mistaken, Mannix is a Bona guy. That would be embarrassing. Another self-loathing A-10 fan.

Mannix is not a Bona guy. He is a Boston College guy, which explains everything quite succinctly.

Re: ACC Calls Out the A10

those of us that never bought into the espn ballwashing of duke knew that coach k was a self absorbed dicknose years earlier.

if you think calipari is dirty, you should look up the stuff coach k has gotten away with, starting with corey maggette and ending with him petitioning to have the games he didn't coach because of "back issues" removed from his record, despite the fact that he recruited the players, set up the system, made up the schedule, made up the game plans and supervised practice throughout the course of the whole season.

He would have been fine if he had only defended the ACC and extolled its strengths. He went wrong when he started throwing stones at other leagues. He has no one to blame but himself for the criticism and ridicule he received.
He exposed himself as arrogant and ill-informed. But, he's upset that other coaches in his league wouldn't stick up for him? Or maybe he's upset that the other coaches in his league put together crappy tournament performances, making him look even worse.

Re: ACC Calls Out the A10

Coach K has 4 national titles and is one of the greatest coaches in college history. I doubt he really cares that a bunch of A-10 homers think he's an idiot.

Correct. I misunderstood someone saying he was a "grad" when discussing Schmidt-BC. I thought he meant Mannix was a Bona grad.

Re: ACC Calls Out the A10

The funny part of the entire episode and all you need to know about Coach K is the fact that he gott all pissy after his statements and the fact that no one from the ACC supported him. An awful lot of insecurity on full display.

Re: ACC Calls Out the A10

I am still annoyed with Coach K, but truthfully this is good for the A10. They are getting discussed with the ACC now with Coach K's comments and with our little agreement with the ACC at the Barclays center. The comments haven't all been good for the A10, but hey it is getting us publicity
