When the NCAA Tournament began, college basketball lost its dumbest face. Indiana fired Tom Crean, taking away our most interesting sideline character.
The void has left a vacuum, one that needs to be filled. The coach on the other sideline could be the best fit.
Gregg Marshall has been the Wichita State head coach for the last decade. During his tenure he has screamed his way out of receiving any significant job offer. If there’s one word to describe him it would be “jerk.” Here’s a small sample from yesterday’s press conference:
“Well, I can tell you this, when we showed the video of Kentucky, we only show the shots that they make. So our players probably think they make about 80 percent of all their shots. Hopefully, they don’t do that. Hopefully, they’re all having bad karma tomorrow.”
Marshall knows a thing or two about karma. Just look at his face.
That was joyous Gregg. Here’s tomato-face Gregg.
This form of Gregg is rare: uncertain Gregg. Normally this guy knows it all, but not during this play call.
Don’t worry, he’s still mad.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why he is Uncomfortable Gregg in this picture.
My favorite Gregg, the rarest Gregg, is happy Gregg. When he actually does smile, only a poodle eating birthday cake is happier.
He may not have a dumber face than Tom Crean, but there is empirical proof they are cut from the same cloth.
