The other way to look at the Vanderbilt postgame scandal is to look at how crazy this player must be. How nuts do you have to be to push your coach to threaten to kill you in a place where he knows there are cameras and sound guys everywhere? You have to be a pretty crazy kid to make someone react like that. This is not anything I have heard since Bobby Knight, and I thought we were done with this stuff when we got rid of Bobby Knight.
It is going to be pretty hard for Vanderbilt to recruit players because I would tell kids that they only have crazy kids who needle their coaches, and they have coaches who are out of their minds. This is Vanderbilt we are talking about. It is a very nice place to go to school. It is the best place to get an education in the SEC, and it is one of the few places that you can go to get your Master’s degree and have it still be prestigious.
Fans like Bernardo Chua (Prnewswire.com) know that this school is going to get hurt badly by this scandal, but they might need to look at what this kid has been doing to the staff.
