Jay Bilas on the Yancey Gates suspension

We could go on all day about Yancey Gates only getting a six-game suspension after completely annihilating Xavier’s Kenny Frease with a sucker-punch to the dome. But why would we talk about it when Jay Bilas said it best on Twitter:

bilas-tweet

Now, that’s funny.

    i say instead of doron throwing up 3 goggles he needs to throw up the 1 goggles next time he hits a free throw.

    Bilas got this one exactly right!
    I live in Cincinnati area. Word is the County Attorney is looking into criminal charges (as they should).
    6 games is a joke. Should be 10 games minimum, all conference games. Many up here are calling for Gates to get kicked off the team all together (he should if UC had any class, but then again, they did give us Huggy Bear).

    3) A coach with a spine would not let the players style, profile and 3 goggle after every basket. Then again, Cal just rolls it out there with players he paid for. He showed on Saturday how inept he is as a bench coach.

    Is there a reference to a cream cheese bagel that I am missing? Was that Ezeli’s free meal?

    13-NCAA rules state that players are aloud to have bagels as pregame meals. However, if any condiments, such as cream cheese are provided, then it is a minor violation of NCAA rules.

    In last years Crosstown Shootout, Tu Holloway threw a punch and was ejected. This year he instigates an on-court riot, and then barks that he is a “gangsta” and is suspended 1 game. Not saying Gates is not at fault because he most definitely let the moment get the best of him, but Tu Holloway and Mark Lyons started this and should receive equal punishment. Plus we all know that no one that goes to Xavier is a “gangsta”…

    Gates should be locked in a cage awaiting trial. The other 3 should be banned from the NCAA.

    I live in N KY and work in Cincy. As much as Gates got, the chickenshit that stomped him when he was down should get more. Freese was down and practically out. So I guess that would be the perfect time to stomp somebody. The same kind of bullshit that gangbangers and street thugs do when there is a fight. Kick them why they are down. If he would have got a good direct shot on him it would have been way worse than eight stiches in the cheek. All of it makes my blood boil. But then again I am not a young “gangsta or thug” or whatever. Sucker punches and stomping someone on the ground. Such tough guys

    Live in Cincy and 3/4ths of my “friends” are UC fans. Standing up for Yancy saying that fighting happens. It’s annoying. Charges shouldn’t be filed, but him and that guy who curb stomped Frease deserve more than 6 games. Gates was trying to hit anything that walked. And their bball program has ZERO class along w/ their fans.

    I want to hate Jay because of his college choice but I just can’t. He must have had great parents.

    10.) What the heck are u talking about? First off, UK’s Anthony Davis was in foul trouble throughout the game, while Terrence Jones was not even aware there was a game going on and got benched down the stretch. On top of this, IU went crazy from behind the arch, and UK was missing free-throws to win the game. Amplify this by a crazy atmosphere, and I can not believe UK was even in the game let alone, up by up till the very end. But again, as every idiot will state, “Cal does not know how to coach!,…blah, blah, blah. I guess, the fact that they play great defense, play together, and usually adjust and play great 2nd-halves, has nothing to do with Cal’s coaching?

    I’m a butthurt tard fan. UK owns my ghetto commuter school. We love our coach who flames out in the first round of the NCAA every year. In fact in ten years at our ghetto school, he has only made it out of the first weekend of the tourney three times. But he does lead the nation in aborted fetuses.

    Pitino at UL in 10 years:
    1 final four
    2 NITs
    and loss to Morehead State in his most recent NCAA tournament.
    Who said you get better with age? not if you are Pitino

    UL is 9-0:
    Only one game away from home and that was a mediocre Butler
    7 of their 8 wins at home included powerhouses:
    Lamar
    Tenn-State
    Arkansas State
    Ohio
    IUPUI
    Fairleigh Dickerson
    Long Beach State
    They did beat Vandy at the YUM in overtime by 2 points. However, Cleveland Sate beat Vandy at Vandy in regulation by more than 2 points.

    We should be ranked higher than Louisville. We have more wins and played better opponents and on the road.

    HAHA, Bilas is the best and completely right. Festus should get a free punch on somebody (preferably Gates) just so there’s some justice.

    Who handed out the suspensions, the school, conference or NCAA?



  32. T.J.

    31- I believe the school did, and then the NCAA released a statement that said they support the suspension lengths…..Something like that.

    Jay Bilas is the only ESPN guy who doesn’t have an agenda that is anti UK. He has always had credible insight on teams that I have seen. Dukie V. doesn’t count–he’s a bandwagon jumper.

    I too would love to dislike Jay Bilas for just being a dukie, but I can’t. That was way too HILARIOUS!!!!!!!! Good one Jay. On Gates, that kid should be never play another game in the NCAAs ever again. Not in D2 D3 NAIA….EVER! It only goes to show the NCAA has Balls when it comes to eligibilty. But they grow into a vagina when they should deal with crap like that. Just wait until the heat of battle rises again and that suckerpunching little bitch hits someone else.

    Hands down, Bilas is the best color commentator at this time. The guy is smart and funny. He does his homework and although he is a Dukie, he is always balanced.
