Robert Griffin III rants on physical play in Baylor women's loss
Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, a Baylor grad, ranted Sunday on the physical quality of play in the Lady Bears' women's basketball stunning loss to Louisville on Sunday.
Robert Griffin III is a Baylor alum. And he doesn't play around when it comes to supporting his school's athletic teams.
RG3 backs football, basketball and is a huge women's basketball fan as well.
So much so that, following the stunning Baylor women's loss on Sunday to Louisville, the Redskins quarterback went on a Twitter rant about the physical style of play that the Cardinals used to upset the Lady Bears.
Whew.....ok I took my time to calm down and not go off on twitter about the Baylor Girls Basketball game....BUT I CAN'T DO IT!!!!!— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013
People poke and make fun of B. Griner all the time but C'MON MAN....Them girls were LITERALLY throwing elbows, slaps, weave....— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013
Not to mention the lil lady who was mean-mugging B. Griner's BELLY BUTTON after she made the nice layup.....BACK UP CHILDS PLAY!!!— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013
Griffin wasn't alone in the ranting -- Baylor coach Kim Mulkey blasted officials following the game, basically begging someone to fine her. Of course, Griffin wasn't done, either.
No hate on this end people Louisville won & will live to play another game #Props but that doesn't mean I have to like how it went down— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013
Oh..& anyone offending B. Griner, Coach Mulkey's Family or anyone else involved with the team needs to back-back back-back give Em 50 ft— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013
Yes people Louisville hit the 3 ball all night. But for every 3 they made, they threw 6 elbows, 5 straight lefts, 4 right hooks...— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013
.....3 roundhouse kicks, 2 jumping knees, & 1 superman punch at B. Griner's abdominals. Aiming for her face but couldn't reach— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013
Oh...and yes I'm mad about women's basketball cuz I PUT ON for my SCHOOL!!!! And there is a difference in being physical and fighting— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013
Despite all the man jokes BG is not SHAQ! She is a 6'8 WOMAN! & the REFS! OH MY...NCAA may find a way to fine me if I bring them up— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013
But how do you REALLY feel, RG3? It was a busy Twitter on Sunday for RG3 -- as we noted on Sunday evening, the QB also tweeted about visiting the President.
And he got some backlash when it came to his heated Baylor tweets. But as he pointed out, if you don't like him stepping up for his school, well, don't follow him on Twitter.
Yes, it's the offseason and, yes, it's a slow news day. You don't need to point that out in the comments.
