Kevin Stallings Turned Around And Yelled At Louisville Fans "At Least We Didn't Pay Our Kids $100,000"

YahooAsked to explain his comment after the game, Stallings told reporters in Louisville, “Somebody said something bad about my players.”

“Probably said the wrong thing, but I’m not going to let people talk crap about my players,” Stallings added. “We’re down, the game’s over with, you don’t need to insult kids that are out there trying to fight hard and do their best. Like I said, I probably should have chosen some different words, but I’m not going to let people take shots at our players.”

Stallings would not elaborate on what the fan said to incite him. He also did not answer when asked if the fan had been heckling him or his team throughout the game.

“That’s enough,” Stallings said. “That’s enough.”


Love or hate Kevin Stallings, I don’t know how you don’t appreciate that for what it was: some good old fashioned shut-you-the-fuck-up trash talk.  I mean yes, it’s obviously true the #1, undefeated comeback is “Scoreboard!” however that wasn’t available to Coach Stallings last night.

So he went with option #2.  Not quite as good, but devastating nonetheless.   We may be getting our doors blown off and run out of the gym, but at least our legendary coach wasn’t just fired and program is in legal turmoil as the FBI investigates how we allegedly illegally funneled shoe money to our players.

Then again, maybe if we did, we wouldn’t be losing by 26 points right now, but tomato, tomahto.

Talk that shit champ.
