Rick Majerus is losing his mind

St. Louis coach Rick Majerus, who already has raised eyebrows this season by stating a pro-abortion pro-choice stance that conflicts with the Catholic leadership of his university, was quietly reprimanded this week after coming unhinged Saturday during an 81-64 loss at Charlotte.

According to people at the game, Majerus lost control of his emotions after a shot-clock issue went against his Billikens. Majerus approached the scorer's table, found the offending official and unleashed verbal obscenities. One source said Majerus made an obscene gesture as well.

Officials at Charlotte and the A-10 confirm that Majerus was rebuked by the league and has apologized to Charlotte.

Of course the real question is this: What would Ashley Judd think of Majerus now?

Rick Majerus is losing his mind

"I don't drink alcohol or smoke and believe it is a bad thing to do. However, I don't believe they should be against the law or that my views should bee forced on you or anyone else. Does that make me pro-alcohol and pro-cigarettes? I wouldn't want my daughter to have an abortion. From a moral standpoint, I think abortion is wrong. However, I don't think my beliefs should be forced on someone else. That makes me pro-choice, not pro-abortion."

Yeah, well I don't murder or rape, but I DO BELIEVE that those things are against the law because they DIRECTLY hurt other people.  Abortion, HELLO, KILLS children (unless of course you subscribe to that intellectually bereft camp the thinks a fetus is not a child and that the women carrying the fetus is more likely to give birth to a.....cocker spaniel???).  Smoking and drinking do not, in any way, shape, or form, directly kill innocent people as a result of the action of smoking and drinking.  How pathetically coarse of you to compare an act like abortion to having a beer.

Did you even see the game?  It was so bad the Charlotte announcer repeatedly commented on the lopsided officiating.  Majerus is also one of the few coaches who clearly puts the, person first, student second, and the athlete third.  I don't know many people in NORMAL jobs who treat their co-workers that well.

HOW can someone who is "pro-choice" NOT be "pro-abortion"?  That is COMPLETELY nonsensical.  Euphemisms aside, your comment is typical of the liberal left-wing utopians who are completely out of touch with reality.  I guess someone who supported Hitler was not anti-semtic, he was just pro-Nazi, right?  Here is a thought - open your eyes.  Our reality is not utopia.  Killing unborn children is called abortion.  If you are in favor and support a person's hedonistic use of abortion, you are, factually and definitionally, pro-abortion.  No semantics, just reality and facts.  Deal with YOUR CHOICE.

naw, he is not losing his mind. the way asketball is played now, its a shame. check out the fouls that are called. home team advantage all the time. good teams or bad, makes no difference. palming the ball, ever hear of that?? well check the rules, its in there. walking??ha ha what a joke, its in there too.

rick will have a brand new stadium to play in and also will have some of his own recruits also. so i do think he will cool down some and also get better as the time goes by. best thing for him to do is coach and keep his mouth shut, thats for sure.

vrange,

I had intended to drop this but It's just too entertaining to take your words and turn them back on you.

I understood exactly what you wrote, and my reply accurately reflected what you wrote. If it didn't reflect your opinion, you're gong to have to learn to more clearly express yourself.

Here's an example of your idea of clear expression from one of the DUMBEST analogies I've ever read on this board.

"pro-incarcertaion"

Do you want to tell me what dictionary I can find this word in vrange? Could it be French or something?

After some rude awakening type games early in the season, the Billikens are winning.  They beat a pretty good St Joe's team on the road last night and are 16-12 for the season.  That's the way Majerus coaches.  He sets his team up to win this time of year by getting their worst to come out of them early.  He is winning now.

KARLHUNGUS,

  I totally agree with your assessment.  This site, along with ESPN's and other so-call sports sites are getting too  much into the social commentary instead of sports and it's ridiculous

Spadeaspade,

I understood exactly what you wrote, and my reply accurately reflected what you wrote. If it didn't reflect your opinion, you're gong to have to learn to more clearly express yourself. Since you can't seem to do that, and since you continue to flame, you're getting another 1 from me.

What a turkey!

What a political hack!

It's a death tax, not estate tax.

People are anti-abortion, not anti-choice, not anti-civil liberties.

Pro-abortion is in favor of abortions

Pro-choice is in favor of choice for those who have to make the decision.

Too tough for you?  Write something about how the surge is working.

Wow, Hilary tied funding to this.  Good one.  DO you really want to go with what Bush has tied funding to. Education funding for teaching the bible in churchs.  Funding for African nations only if they taught Catholic religous beliefs. And do you think  the " What would Jesus DO" phrase would work with respect to the IRAQ war ,which even the Pope attempted to jusitfy.  Also and again why does the Catholic religion enjoy cherry picking from the bible so much.  The parts that they agree with are more easy to follow? 

Continuing the Supreme Court has ruled on the Constituitionality of the right to abortion, They ruled that the right to abortion is grounded  in the due process clause of the 14th amandment.The Lincoln-Douglas debates were just that, debates. They were not rulings on anything.  The Dred Scott decision was the case that ruled on the Constitutionality of Slavery. It overturned Congresssional law for just the second time in US histroy, at the time.  It was later overturned.
