Woods could face disciplinary action

Sean Woods is facing possible disciplinary action for his sideline outburst on Eagles point guard Devon Atkinson.  Morehead State athletic department spokesman Matt Segal said today that the situation is being reviewed internally and no one will be available for comment today.

This is a week the Unforgettable would like to forget.

    From Devon’s twitter. “I need for everyone to chill with all that talk about my coach he was tell me some good stuff and he love me he was tell me good stuff.”

    this is a whole lot about nothing. this is not even news. coaches lean into players and players respond. i saw nothing wrong with the coach’s actions and if you saw the live play you would understand too! or were you too busy jerking off matt?

    Most of you people pounding your chests on here would s#!t your pants if someone did that to you for real.
    It’s inappropriate in any age, at any time, by any one, any where. Sean needs to calm down. True leaders
    don’t shove anyone, and they don’t need to yell like that. Does Cal yell? Yes he does. But never like that.
    It’s a freakin’ BASKETBALL GAME. No one was getting hurt. No one was getting killed. It was
    inappropriate, and you chumps sitting behind your keyboards acting like you’re tough because you
    support it and everyone else is week, need to come up out of the basement for a while and maybe
    help your Mom out with some housework and with the meal she’s cooking right now, and thank
    your parents for everything they give you so you don’t have to work a real job. Amen.

    I defended him last night before I seen it again. I didn’t see the shove at the beginning. That is completely unacceptable from a head coach. Zero excuse or defense of that. He deserves disciplinary action.

    Wasnt it Cal who was caught yelling MFer to TJ last year on national tv? So bad that his own wife reprimanded him. Sean gave him a little shove but his outburst pales in comparison to some of Cal’s outbursts.

    Im a huge Kentucky fan but some of these comments are silly. not not all on this post but some concerning the game last night. I know some of the players at MSU. I hear yall caling Atkinsons a thug and for him to go back to the hood. why because he is black? and yall talk about his hair like thats his style its no one elses hair so why is everyone so worried. There are players who play at kentucky who are from the hood you cant help where you are from not everyone is fed with a silver spoon or have everything handed to them. So i would like for wanna yall to tell archie or poythress to go back to the hood



  12. LansingCat

    Anybody remember when Cal called T. Jones a “selfish MF’er?” And that wasn’t a shove. He was sending his butt to the bench. For mouthing off. I’ve was chewed out close to that at age14, and it was GOOD for me. I guess some of you people assume that 18 year olds in the Marines don’t get an earful, either…

    Seeing it again, I don’t think it’s as bad as it’s being made out to be. The “shove” was to tell him to hurry up to the bench. The yelling was would stop and the kid would say something else. Stop, kid would say something else, stop, kid would say something else. I assume the kid was back talking. Like how most are assuming Woods was saying bad things.

    Stephen A. Smith absolutely skewered Sean Woods on First Take earlier. He was on point, and made it very clear that the MSU suits shouldn’t let this slide….obviously to make the point that we don’t need another Booby Knight wannabe in collegiate athletics. Or, as Devon would say, “He was tell us some good stuff”.

    No excuse for shoving the player. Woods should be placed on a zero tolerance policy moving forward and forced to make a public apology. Like I said earlier, Woods is a thug who recruits and coaches thugs. Take down his individual jersey from Rupp’s rafters along with the other Unforgettables individual jerseys. Leave one Unforgettables banner with their names on it to honor their contributions.

    This site sure is not what it used to be. Seems you have stopped being what made you popular and become just like those you used to make fun of. I guess you have to to get to run with the big dogs. Woods did nothing that many, many coaches have done and will do. Your site is not one I visit like I did. YOu probably will say “oh well” and that is fine. The more you become on the “In” the less you have to say.

    Your site has become arrogant and smug. Woods team came very close to winning. I will take his passion and intensity over your smugness and hypocrisy. He is what he is, you are what you are depending on the crowd you are with. You bashed Calipari and now you subtly act as if you were misguided. You got lucky with this site at the right time. The thing about luck, it eventually runs out.

    12 – I know Atkinson from when I worked the score table at his community college games before he came to MSU. I can promise you, and everyone, he is anything but a thug. He is a polite young man, religious, friendly to everyone, and with a deep respect for his parents. You only had to meet them to know how Atkinson became the fine man that he is.

    Atkinson looks like a thug. So what.
    Ever see Brandon Knight before the haircut?

    Alex Poythress from the hood? No idea, but
    I know he had excellent grades, played ball, and
    worked part time at Wendy’s his senior year.

    Sean Woods was “coaching”. I have been a coach
    to teenagers and they are a handful. Imagine
    trying to reign in grown men.

    Everyone gets too excited.
    And for the record, the site was better when Beisner was here.
    Just saying.

    For those referencing Cal’s “confrontation” with T.J., calling him a “selfish MF”…well, he WAS selfish, at that time. It wasn’t until he came back his Soph. year, had the horrible game that cost us the loss at IU (or helped us win #8, depending on how you look at it), finally learned how be a true team player, that he was able to improve and move on to the NBA. Cal knows how to get through to players, early in their college careers….sometimes using “extreme measures” ; but it’s all for the betterment of the players. But he would NEVER treat a player…especially a SENIOR…the way Sean did, on national TV. He didn’t recruit these kids…he inherited them. For him to berate a Senior, who is probably still adjusting to having a new coach, and who played his butt off all night…fouling out because he was coached to play that way, by Woods…is inexcusable.

It does not say “Sean Woods is evil and kicked a puppy after!” It doesn’t even state an OPINION of what Woods did, it is just reporting something about one of the Unforgettables. You guys are ridiculous! I assume that Richie was framed too huh?

    If that were my son, I’d be on campus this morning sitting in the school presidents office beside the AD waiting to hear their plan to fix that coaches behavior disorder. When you’ve resorted to violence to make a point like that you’ve lost. The ass-istant coach jumping in to yell some more speaks volumes to the environment on the coaching staff.

    At least two witnesses called in to Matt’s postgame show last night, saying that the “kid” kept mouthing off to his coach, including the “F” word, every time Sean said something to him. At what point do you think it’s OK for that to happen? I think the whole thing is being overblown.

    People are blowing this thing way out of proportion. Should he have pushed the kid? No, but people need to chill out, it’s not like he punched the kid in face he shoved him. stuff like this probably goes on in football and other sports even in basketball all the time this was just caught on tv. My baseball coached chest bumped me and chewed my a$$ out multiple times in high school, but you know what you learn from your mistake suck it up and move on. I actually loved the way Morehead St played, they played a tough and physical game, I wish kentucky would play that hard. We look terrible on offense we need to exploit the mismatch that poythress creates every game early on in the game we also need to get wiltjer involved in the offense more he should put up 15 shots a game at least. And why aren’t we using Noel like we used Davis last year it should lob city all over again, but instead we have our bigs on the perimeter turning the ball over it just doesn’t make since to me. As well as Archie gets to the rim there’s no reason Noel shouldn’t be on the baseline waiting for a lob. Also, lets learn how to put a butt into somebody wiltjer even if you don’t get the rebound if you put a Butt into someone you create a rebound for someone else and noel too there is to reason we should gibe up second chances on offense. I know it’s early and of coarse we are young but this years team has been really frustrating to watch

    I can understand being frustrated with a player and venting that, but shoving him deserves disciplinary action. And if he really was trying to call him down, the he should have patted him on the shoulder, head somethin to let him know it’s ok, like we’ve seen Cal do. I felt sorry for the kid, looked like he was on the verge of tears.
