#POSTERIZED: Travis Releford doesn't take no flack from no one

Travis Releford is a fifth year senior who has been through it all at Kansas. As one f the team's primary leaders it's Releford's job to teach the young bucks (Ben McLemore, Jamari Traylor and Naadir Tharpe) how to get it done on a consistent basis.

This is how you get it done:

I do have to point out that Releford got away with one here at the end. He should have been called for a technical foul. I've seen guys get T'd up for far far less, it was rather quite bizarre to see Releford get away with so much "mean mugging".

Here's the thing. I don't like the rule. I think you should be able to stare the poor fool down until you decide to stop. If you bang on 'em, you should be able to flex on 'em as well.

But was it as good as these:
Archie Goodwin - Kentucky vs. Portland, 12/8/12
Rodney Williams, Minnesota vs. Florida State, 11/27
Week In Review - Feast Week, 11/18 - 11/25
Tarik Black - Memphis vs. Minnesota, 11/23
Ben McLemore - Kansas vs. Washington State - 11/20
Andre Roberson - Colorado vs. Murray State, 11/18
Doug Anderson - Detroit vs. Drake, 11/17
Archie Goodwin - Kentucky vs. Lafayette, 11/16
John Brown - High Point vs. Appalachian State, 11/13
Stefan Jankovic - Missouri vs. Alcorn State, 11/14
Cole Dickerson - San Francisco vs. Cal State-East Bay, 11/13
Clancy Rugg - Vermont vs. UConn, 11/13
Jamari Traylor - Kansas vs. Michigan State, 11/13
Doug Anderson - Detroit vs. St. John's, 11/13
Kris Brewer - Kent State vs. Temple, 11/13
Rakeem Christmas - Syracuse vs. San Diego State, 11/11
Deandre Daniels - UConn vs. Michigan State, 11/9
Ben McLemore - Kansas vs. Emporia State, 10/31
Keion Bell - Missouri vs. Northwest Missouri, 10/31

I watched the game, and even though it looked like he was mean mugging the player they soon after showed the baseline cameraman's view. Travis was "staring intently" into the camera. With the referee being so close, I'm sure he noticed that it was NOT directed toward the player what so ever. I thought the exact same thing (not being T'd up) when I first saw it until I saw the other shot.
