Who would want to play for a coach who can literally hurt/injure you.

I've had my practice jersey grabbed before, but if a coach like him grabbed at it, pulled me to his face, and tried to sling me around like that...and throwing basketballs at my head...he would have been KO'ed, and I'd lose my scholarship.  Don't care.

 

Props to all of those players that deal with it.  I wouldn't be so...understanding?  I don't even know the word I'm trying to use.

Feel bad for those guys just trying to make it. Doing whatever it takes to get to the top level and accepting all that neglect and abuse just to keep their scholarships.

What's sad about this is the fact the athletic director of Rutgers is trying so hard to defend this guy. Mike Rice should be fired and he should never be a college or high school basketball coach again.

Mike Rice's son?? No way... after watching/listening to some blazers broadcasts before I would have never guessed... :laughing: In all seriousness though that's ridiculous.

To me he looks passionate and driven. Big deal he pulled some jerseys and threw some balls at his players...lol. What kinda [expletive]ing prima donna pansies are hoops players now a days.

 

In NCAA baseball Greg Jefferies committed 2 errors in a game and his college coach made him check in to practice Sunday morning to field ground balls barehanded.....off the black top parking lot outside the field. he went on to win 2 gold gloves with the NY Mets.

 

In NCAA Football Ken Houston's defensive coach would make him run drills while he shot paint balls at him. Ken got so fast he began to dodge the paint balls. While making tackles. He went on to be a 12 time NFL pro bowl safety with 50 INTS and 10 for TD run backs.

 

terry Steinbach was a catcher in HS. His HS coach made him squat while he chucked baseballs at him at 70-80MPH. He wore no glove, no shin guards and no vest. Only the mask. Wherever he threw them he had to block the ball using his mask. In his 14 year MLB career Terry only had 83 pass balls. Thats 6 per every 120 games. Majority of which were wild pitches.

 

No players is so good theyre beyond a bit of torment to get better. Id appreciate a coach like that. it would motivate me. Give me a coach that will boss up. This guy has fire. That lights fire under spoiled athletes asses. Hes the opposite of MDT. Lakers should hire this guy.

^ Lol, don't agree with your post, but love it nonetheless and respect it. Something different and you make great points, but at the end of the day, crossing the line is crossing the line and there's no way around it.

 

You've gotta' wonder though, around the country, just how many more cases there are like this if not worse, but we the public simply have no way of knowing cause there's no proof or video seemingly out there such as this.


yo.

GA done lost his mind. I would want my son to have similar rights to knock that [expletive] out for poor coaching. I can discipline my own son...not some [expletive]ing retard of a coach.

Funny they fired the guy for being "insubordinate" and showing up to a basketball camp the coach didn't want him at( was probably misbehaving again and didn't want to be caught)

So Rutgers fires him or doesn't "renew" the contract but when video evidence is given to them...its a suspension...

No one pulled the race card yet... Heheh


Anyway here's the update

Those are all extreme cases, still, but tell me something: what does throwing a basketball at a player's head, when his back is turned, do for him? Players don't post up with their backs to the ball-handler, and this isn't dodgeball.

Or kicking a guy? Basketball players don't practice self-defense from strikes.

Even though your examples were a bit too extreme, and were special cases that probably wouldn't be significant to most players, the intention was to make them better. Rice acted out of frustration, and nothing he did was going to make any athlete better.

In fact, they have lost five players because of it. Five transfers. That's a big deal, and ultimately, that's why he was fired.

Well throwing the ball at his back = [expletive]ing pay attention. I have no problem so long as theres no blood.

kicking a guy, yea thats wrong and doesnt do much, I agree.

But I have no prob with yelling, cursing, throwing things, pulling jerseys to show proper positioning.

 

Honestly I didnt see him kick or hit anyone. Not saying he didnt. Ill take your word cuzz your probably more up to date on this than me. 

Anything physical and combative is wrong. But if hes chucking a ball at a players back for not paying attention while hes coaching, that should be encouraged imo. 

Those players are there, maybe on a scholarship (which is a for of payment).....do what your supposed to do.

The players were brought in to play basketball...not get bullied and abused.

 

Same thing can be said for the coach....he is being paid to coach not abuse the players.
