I can’t stop watching this postgame rant by Southern Illinois’ coach

Tonight, Kentucky will take on Southern Illinois, coached by Barry Hinson. I’ll admit that I knew nothing about Barry Hinson when I woke up this morning, but after watching a video of him ranting about his team after a loss to Murray State in 2013, I am now his biggest fan.

Hinson unleashed on his squad after the 73-65 loss to the Racers in what may be the greatest postgame press conference of all time. Here are my five favorite quotes:

On his team being outrebounded: “I’ve been telling my wife for years, size doesn’t matter.”

On his guards:  “Our guards are awful. Our three starting guards had one assist and seven turnovers. They must think it’s a tax credit. It’s unbelievable how our starting guards played.”

On his big guys: “How can you go 2-11?! My wife, MY WIFE, can score more than two buckets on 11 shots because I know my wife will at least shot fake one time.”

On his players’ bad defense: “There was a sniper in the gym. Didn’t you see that? We had guys falling down. We had a guy snipered at half-court. Two guys snipered at half-court. It was unbelievable. I would’ve thought Navy Seal Team 6 was out there.”

On the number of turnovers his team committed: “I swear, I thought one time that one of our players said Merry Christmas. I thought it was a gift. I thought they signed the package.”

He also compares his players to puppies who need potty training. It’s amazing.

Another reason I want Kentucky to crush the Salukis is so we can get a repeat performance of this in the Rupp Arena media room tonight.

    So deadpan about telling his wife size doesn’t matter. Also, I think he might be related to Chester. One minute he sounds genial, the next like he’s about to stroke out.

    Seriously though, it was awkward when he made the joke about size not mattering and nobody laughed

    If this was 2013 he must be a good coach he’s still there.

      SIU is broke, they cant afford to fire him. This was gold for us out west. SIU and Murray State share the same local affiliates, so they played this several times.

    The guy is funny, but I’d hate to be one of his players.

    Tough to outdo Dick Fick (R.I.P.) for entertainment, but this guy is right there.

    We need this guy on coach Cal’s staff now. That’s money right there either way you look at it.
