Jackson State coach suspended for tirade

You know, if I were a head coach of a college football team, and I just lost a game, a sideline reporter would probably be the last thing I want in my face.  I'm pretty competitive, and the truth is, when I lose, I get angry.  So I wouldn't want Erin Andrews sticking a microphone in my face and asking questions because, odds are, I would say something I shouldn't say on television and get in trouble.

So I can relate to Jackson State coach Rick Comegy.   Following a loss to Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Saturday night, Comegy had such an interaction with a sideline reporter, and he went off on the officials.  Because of it, he now finds himself suspended for one game by the SWAC.  What did Comegy say?

It's time to play Mad Libs with Rick Comegy!

"I thought they (expletive) cheated that game," Comegy said. "They took that (expletive) game away from these (expletive) kids. That's what the (expletive) I've got to say."

Just in case you can't figure out what the correct expletives were, you can listen to Comegy's mini-tirade right here .

Comegy's team was penalized 17 times for 143 yards in the game, which no doubt played a role in the team's loss, and knocked them out of first place in the SWAC East division.
