Doug Sirmons was out of line. Even the South Carolina fans around me feel bad for John Calipari and Kentucky after Calipari was tossed two minutes into the game at the hands of Sirmons. Sirmons sprinted all the way across the court to give Calipari his first technical, then quickly gave him a second and sent him back to the locker room. Those two have never been on good terms, and Sirmons took their hatred for one another to the next level today.
Former Tennessee head coach Buzz Peterson called it “absolutely embarrassing to college officiating.”
What Doug Sirmons did today is absolutely embarrassing to college officiating. He has a short fuse and coaches for years have complained.
