Coaches Behaving Badly

Back in December, Andy Kennedy was arrested for allegedly assaulting a cab driver. There were conflicting stories about what happened that night, but it seems like the Cincinnati police believe Kennedy was drunk and belligerent at local college hangout called The Lodge Bar. He tried to get more people in a cab than would fit, and ended up assaulting the cab driver after some sort of verbal altercation.

I didn't think this story would have any legs after it came out that his wife was suing the cabbie for, among other things, ruining their sex life. But now, the Cincinnati police has released the video from Kennedy's arrest:

My two favorite parts: when Kennedy says that his arrest will be an "international incident". Really? People outside of the US are going to care when a mediocre coach from a mediocre team in a mediocre conference gets arrested for being a drunk redneck? Right.

The other great line? At the 3:45 mark, one of the cops says something along the lines of "You think we haven't made a national arrest? We deal with the Bengals all the time!"

You can't make this stuff up.

While pops is in the news for his reported interest in the Georgia job, Pat Knight is in the news for a legendary tantrum. The video explains it exactly, but apparently what happened is a Tech player was called for a foul when he was thrown to the floor. Knight lost it, and twice chased the refs all over the court:

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, I guess. UPDATE: Pat Knight will not be suspended by the Big XII. How is that possible? Did you see what he did? Should I send this post to the Big XII?
