I saw just a piece of that the other day on the news. That was one of the best post-games of all time!

This guy needs to be committed. He thinks the officials felt the same way he did after the game? Yeah, sure. BTW - I guarantee no official called his player for "over the back".

I think he's the star of that new show, "Dancing With The Morons".

It was so sad it was funny. I saw this several times on SportsCenter and they had a field day with this rant. They showed the thing in its entirety several times. I did nothing but get a kick out of this.

Peace

"Over the Back"

Mark---I actually had an official report the foul as "over the back" this past Saturday.

Not the same coach

Monty,

If you have been working long enough as an official, we all have had a partner that reported a foul by saying "over the back" or any other term that is incorrect (moving screen, reach as examples).

Peace

Thumbs up

I know this Man !
Kevin was at Michigan Tech Women when Michigan Tech was at it's best.
Assistant Head coach Dawn [Zarling] Plitzuweit was an All-American at the same time.
Assistant Coach Mike Williams was a fiery Boys and Girls head coach a couple miles from here.
(And certainly they have longer resume's that include Wisconsin-Green Bay and Grand Valley State.)

While Borseth coached at Tech, people were happy to pay for the quality of ball, and for the antics and the histrionics ...of all three.

They all are very passionate. And they are fine folks.

Coach Knight returns!

Ah yes, the media and fans of the Big Ten are happy to have the Bob Knight void filled.

I like to tell coaches, "Over the back is good, ON the back is bad."

I've had partners make this call; some even use the monster claw signal for it.
I've had partners call "reaching in."
I've had partners call "first to touch" after a player went out of bounds.
