Tim Floyd as Nick Nolte

Not too long ago, Tim Floyd was calmly breaking up fights at casinos. Now, he’s trying to incite them. In last night’s loss to East Carolina, Floyd and his staff picked up four technicals in five minutes (five total) and Floyd was escorted out by a police officer, leaving an undergraduate assistant to coach the team.

Awesome.

    Just another example of terrible officiating in the NCAA.

    That looks like an episode of cops where the drunk starts talkin smack and then starts apologizing 2 seconds later only to go back to their slurrish smack.

    I dont think a cop should have a right to come out and get him away from the refs. Its part of the game and shouldnt interfear with it.

    9: On the contrary I think the police officer did the exact right thing. He had been ejected from the game. It’s obvious that Tim Floyd had lost it as he was stalking down the ref. Imagine what people would be saying if Floyd would’ve taken a swing at the ref. Then people would be saying, “somebody should’ve stepped in there and separated them.” “I can’t believe they let him act like that without someone doing something.”

    I remember years ago the Ky Colonels were playing the Va Squires at the old armory when Dr. J was with the Squires. They had an “enforcer” who protected Dr. J. He got a technical for something, then another, then another and the refs threw him out. He wouldn’t leave and the police finally came and escorted him the the locker room. Until the police came he would not leave the court. Nothing has changed.

    IT’S OK TO HOLD, PUSH, HACK KNIGHT AND OTHER UK PLAYERS ALL NIGHT, GO AHEAD, REFS WILL ONLY CALL 1/6 OF THE FOULS

    I didn’t see Penny Hardaway or Shaq anywhere, Bob Cousy needs to get his guy under control.

    The guy in purple seems to be enjoying it a little “too much” at 00:46. He certainly impressed the world in his 10 seconds of fame.

    Refs think it is about them. They need to realize they are merely a tolerated nuisance.

    18/ Yeah, I agree. But Calipari is right in that it is a no win situation. If you read “Season on the Brink”, you will see some of the retaliation to Knight from the officials. Although, it was probably worth it to Knight. He said to the official before the game (when he saw him laughing at something) “Why are you laughing? you’re the G. D. joke.” SEC officiating has reverted back to the old days; not just for UK, but for all teams.

    I would like to see more of this. I think coaches acting like crybabies (Coach K, Pitino) and bullying the refs into making calls in their favor (Coach K, Calhoun, Knight) is ridiculous. Being a ref is a crappy job and as long as they are being fair to both sides or equally crappy to both sides pipe down and coach your players. I agree officiating needs to be top notch and it seems to have slipped lately but this whole working the officials into submission has gone on too long by coaches like Pitino, K etc. Is it better for the game of basketball for the refs to be afraid of the big name coaches or to not put up with a a bunch of whining and focus on calling a good game?

    Wow, how embarrassing. The kids are more mature than their leaders.

    Cal should have pulled one of those last night when the refs gave that little punk 7 straight points from the line!!!

    Cal and staff needs to do this so Enes gets to coach a game.

    The kid on the first row at the 45 or 46 mark is doing more ball handling than any of the actual players in the game. I wonder if Blue Star Ointment would help him out?

    25 – The kid next to him in the grey shirt was playing with Mr. Hanky also.

    Awesome. But how does 2 ejections take them down to a undergrad assistant running the team?

    Typical officiating. All the first guy had to do was turn and walk away and it likely would have been over. But instead he kept telling Floyd to back away and when Floyd went to his huddle the official followed him in and incited it. Referees today are so full of themselves and their egos, they can’t handle the calls much less incidents.

    The same ref tossed both coaches, the other refs really needed to step in and calm him down.

    i think refs should have to attend press conferences after the game from the media…players and coaches are held liable and have to answer, why not officials? I think technicals are so childish to be called by an official…unless your being physically threatned, grow some balls, everyone else is criticized when they do a poor job, why cant they be?

    I’ve said it for years..only good referee is a dead referee !!!!!! Last night was a disgrace. I couldn’t count the number of bad calls on both sides.Whoever is the head of the refs needs to be fired and those ass clowns from last night with him !!!!
