Help me hate Chris Mack


Help me hate Chris Mack.

Because now that Chris Mack is the head coach at Louisville, I need to hate Chris Mack.

So what do we know about him? I’ll admit: I know very little. I know he coached at Xavier and did pretty well there. I know he also played at Xavier. I know he doesn’t like Mick Cronin and neither do I. I know he’s bald.

Other than that, my Mack knowledge is limited. His Wikipedia page tells me he played tuba in the University of Evansville band before transferring to Xavier, but that’s pretty funny. I can’t hate him for playing tuba in college. I know one of his assistants is Bill Murray’s son, which means Bill Murray will now be a Louisville fan — I can definitely hate him for that.

What else, though? Who can give me a really good reason to hate Mack, other than the fact he’s at Louisville? Rick Pitino was easy to hate and poke fun of. Almost too easy, really. But Mack, this is going to take some work.

The pimp jokes write themselves, so that’s fun:

But I still need more than Louisville hiring another pimp on its coaching staff.

Any ideas? Or should I just wait and let nature work its course?

    Was coach 2, then his little son…..coach 2.5 Now here comes Coach 3 the one actually following coach 2. Only thing he will leave Da’ville with is a golden parachute.

    He looks like one of the aliens in Men In Black.

  6. PTA

    He’s the evil brother of Terry Meiners !

    I’d like to see cal go bald get a cat and refer to Mack as his mini me.

    It is hard to hate a coach who is signing on to a program that should get the death penalty. Brad Stevens is the only coach that could beat UK with 8 scholarship players. UK has 8 McDonalds All-Americans, for crying out load. If you are looking for a reason to hate Chris Mack, it has to be for being dumb enough to take a job where the school gets 2 schloarships per year over a 4 year period.

    Some of these articles are exposing a lot of immaturity (hint hint).

    1. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      That’s almost every post here.

      “In the most ridiculous manner possible”.

    2. Look Out Fireworks

      I love how so many of you people accept “in the most ridiculous manner possible” as an excuse for ignorance and incompetent journalism/writing skills.

  10. No Love for Red

    Once he puts on U of L Sweaters, T-Shirts, Hats, there is no returning from the Dark Side!! Don’t tell me what a good guy he is!! Rick Pitino was once a good guy, but Louisville stole his Soul!!!

  11. ClutchCargo

    You can’t force this kind of thing. It will come naturally in due time.

  12. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

    Just calm down with a nice Cheesy Gordita Crunch my man.

    Hate for an in-state rival doesn’t have to be justified. It just is. Frankly, I wish KSR would instead go in search of why it obsesses about all things Louisville. It’s very little brother-ish and while the bulk of our fans hate the Cards, I don’t think they’re obsessed with them.

    1. Look Out Fireworks

      I think it’s kind of “big-brother-ish” to be annoyed by the incessant pestering of the little brother.

      Everyone is allowed an obsession, and laughing at how stupid Louisville can be makes Matt giddy.

  14. RICKSVD

    He’s the enemy. I don’t care about pitino and Jurich, theyvare gone. I hate tyra, Mack, Walz, Mcdonald, they are cheating, human trafficking loving garbage. #welikeunderageprostitutes

  15. kuhlkat

    Just watch a couple of his interviews. He is a total bore. Combine that with red and I hate him already

  16. huntcalvert

    That’s easy. He’s the uofl coach

    When he steps in and gets Langford from IU/Vandy and the “recruiting war” begins

    1. Jiminy Crickets

      His first recruit priority will be Langford, his second will be Kyky. He will come in with “recruit Kentucky first”, a direct slap in Cal and UKs face.
      You heard it here first

  18. TB112162

    Jiminy Crickets he is not going to get Langford you heard it here first SMH
