Rick Stansbury Takes Shot at Twany Beckham…He Returns Favor

Mississippi State Coach Rick Stansbury took a couple of shots at his former player Twany Beckham today. As reported by the Courier Journal, Stansbury said:

“I saw his stats the other day in SEC play. Did he make one or attempt one shot?”

This was then followed by:

“He’s seeing some pretty good basketball. He’s getting a front-row ticket every night. Yes, sir.”

Twany Beckham didn’t take too kindly to that comment and tweeted (in a response that has now been removed):

“that dude wanna coach where I’m playin at…not worried at all”

I have normally liked Rick Stansbury, but have always thought him to be a bit of a whiner. Regardless of those tendencies, taking shots at former players, even subtle ones, seems completely unnecessary.

    The only thing worse than Stansbury is his loud-mouthed, annoying wife, Meo.

    I can’t think of anybody I want to beat worse than Stansbury. I hate his whiney @$$ ways. I don’t blame Twany for wanting to get out of there. I can’t believe anyone would want to play with someone like that. He’d better worry about getting his team back on track. Twany isn’t his problem anymore.

    Tool bag indeed. I’d rather practice or Cal than play for Stansbury anyway!!!

    not real classy little Ricky.
    I just lost what little respect i had for him. I wish Cal would start Twany, get to play the whole game and score 30 and we win by 30 and Twany tells Ricky “call me”.
    This won’t go over well with the other brothers in the family.
    Cats on a mission now.

    How could anyone like Stansbury? He’s a tool, a seeping vagina, and perpetually butthurt. He’s also a shitty coach.

    Still remember Rick Stansbury dropping the F Bomb clearly on tv during the game last season with Knight where knight was fouled at half court while shooting a three pointer before half time.

    Playing UK obviously brings out the worse in Miss. St.

    Bout as much chance of Stansbury winning any type of championship as there is Tawny getting playing time. Does Stansbury bother to look at his own team’s stats?

    He’s just jealous! It’s just proof anyone would rather sit bench, with UK than to play for that joke. Twany is part of our team…they all contribute in one way or the other. GO CATS!

    Wow! You expect the players to piss & moan & maybe diss someone occasionally but you expect more from a coach. What is it about the name Rick that makes them so butthurt @ UK???? Do tell…don’t worry I’ll wait!

    Stansbury has always been a whiner. He be-itches and moans at everything that doesn’t go his way in a game.

    Now you can add stupid to being a whiner. Why would you ever want to give a team like Kentucky bulliten board material?

    Whiney hiney should worry more about how he’s gonna cuddle with his boy renardo after he is a bust in the NBA, if he even makes it, and when Miss St fires his sorry rear end.

    Oh, I think the boys will really enjoy showing Mr. Stansbury how much they like Twany and don’t appreciate people bad-mouthing one of our guys.

    And coaches bad-mouthing teenagers? Really, really low-class.

    Cal would never, ever do this to a kid. Never.

    If we win tomorrow I can’t wait to see Cals comments post game or on Wednesday. You just know he will take some little indirect shot at Rick. Thanks Rick for helping this team focus tomorrow.

    Twanny dreamed of playing for UK. Anyone who knows Rick will tell u that his dream is to coach at UK. Twanny reached his dream and Rick will never sniff his. Not only is he a jealous whiner. He is without question one of the worst coaches in America.

    Matt, I don’t thnk I would consider the shots Stansbury took as subtle. Those comments are as out of line as it gets. Totally classless. Stansbury has never been big on class, but this is a new low even for him. Many of his past comments have gone undetected simply because he’s irrelevant in the landscape of college hoops.

    What an absolute Douche!!! Petty shots at a kid that moved on from a bad situation, maybe if Ricky could keep his ball players from fist fighting on national tv he wouldn’t have a problem keeping them happy. Hell he might actually win a few games.

    Matt, I know you have the inside scoop, are we looking at Boogies brother Jaleel aka “Baby Boogie”? He is 6’10” and being recrited by Seton Hall and Murray State. I would like for you all to do a post about him and maybe some video of his games. I say we bring him in and give him a chance.
    We want Baby Boogie, We want Baby Boogie, We want Baby Boogie. Everybody join in.

    Stansbury is a great example for his team. Play in the street and smoke while pumping your gas. I have a feeling the CATS are going to show the Bulldogs what happens when someone mistreats a teamate.

    I like Twany’s attitude and understand why he wanted to get out of Starkville. Stansbury sure didn’t do his team any favors by making such comments right before they get beat by UK. Now the beating will be even worse.

    Stansbury has had a front row seat to see UK smack down everyone of his under-achieving teams. As a matter of fact, its probably not the players under-achieving, its a coach that doesnt know how to coach talented kids. Ask Dee Bost.

    It is very unfortunate that Stans-dingle-berry would take shot at Twany, but this only gives one more reason to beat Bulldogs at the Hump. Kentucky team is already motivated Stans-dingle-berry no need to give us more ammunition to take down reeling Mississippi State. Twany left MSU to take an end of the seat as Kentucky’s bench, what does that say about your program and guys wanting to come play for you. Go Cats Beat Dogs.

    Let’s see what the post-game hand shake line looks like tomorrow. A coach making those kinds of comments toward a player is an utter lack of class. What does that kind of garbage accomplish? The only product of that is a direct reflection on Stansbury. #stupid.

    Stansbury has always been a whiner. He has to be the least respected coach in the SEC.
