In a press conference that would make former Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Mora Sr. look calm (Playoffs? Are you kidding me? Playoffs?), Michigan women's head coach Kevin Borseth went on a tirade after his team lost to Wisconsin 69-67 in Ann Arbor Thursday night. This meltdown was on tape after the game in a post game press conference. The tirade aired on ESPN's PTI and had some language that would get your mouth washed out with soap by nuns.
The point that he was trying to get across is that his team played badly at home in front of a crowd of 1362 at Crisler Arena. Fine. But why he ranted and raved in front of the media is beyond me. Then again, this is Ugly Helmet U, the same school that gave us Bo Schembechler, who fired Ernie Harwell. Coach, we get the point. You didn't play well in the end, you lost and you want to take it out on somebody. There's an old saying a nun once told me, "praise in public, scold in private." You should have listened to your better angels. Some things are best kept out of the public eye and it wouldn't suprise me at all if athletic director William Martin puts you on the carpet.
