Let the Eric Musselman Apology Tour Start Now

Let the Eric Musselman Apology Tour Start Now

FAYETTEVILLE (Ark. Arkansas coach Eric Musselman was known for his temper during his time in the Mountain West with Nevada.

It doesn’t seem like that reputation is going to change anytime soon after an incident that took place right after Wednesday night’s dramatic finish in third place at the Maui Invitational against San Diego State.

Arkansas supporters already know that their beloved coach can be fiery at times. Multiple times, he had to be reprimanded or cut off by his coaches when his emotions got out of control.

But Wednesday night was one of his most outrageous moments, and only a few Razorback fans were able to witness it live.

Multiple reports indicate that Musselman used multiple choice words against San Diego State fans seated behind the team bench at the gym where the game was held. Musselman was irritated by the small venue, which meant that everyone could hear the game and afterwards.

” “There was only an Aztec fan that came down and said a few things,” Musselman stated afterward. “There were some words. “

That was an understatement.

Multiple reports show that Musselman had a heated argument with fans, requiring his staff to pull him away. In the process, multiple witnesses told the San Diego Union Tribune that the Arkansas coach screamed “Go F#@% yourself!” He then placed an L on his forehead, the international symbol for elementary schools, to show them he thinks they are losers.

To make matters worse, he apparently had a conversation with Matt Bradley, the San Diego State guard. The Aztec player was reportedly furious at the exchange.

This appears to be the place where the now-famous video begins.

That’s when the whole world went wild. San Diego State fans flooded the court, including one parent of a player, who wanted to physically take down Musselman for his unprofessional postgame performance.

One man was able to get very close to Musselman, and was retained by the Arkansas coaching team.

Clicking on the tweet above will reveal two videos. The first video shows Keyshad Johnson getting upset that he is not being pursued by the Arkansas coaching staff. The second shows security removing Musselman from an arena to ensure his safety.

An Arkansas fan was also reportedly trying to get into the San Diego State locker rooms. Although it isn’t confirmed, security has escorted away a man wearing what appears to be one the Arkansas Hawaiian button-up shirts that he wore earlier in the tournament.

It wasn’t exactly a shining moment at the University of Arkansas.

Arkansas supporters will show their loyalty by trying find a way for San Diego State to be held responsible. One Aztec fan said that there was only one coach who was forced out of the arena.

Musselman should be a professional. There’s nothing professional about making a “L” with your fingers and placing it on your forehead to let someone know you think they’re a loser.

It’s a bit excessive to advise people to have marital relations with each other at the top of their lungs.

If someone attempted to physically harm a Razorback players, then Musselman should be the first to defend them and he’d be better off testing the repair job on his shoulder.

But even though it seems that this all started with Aztec fanatics expressing their dismay after the game, those are just words. Musselman will never again hear words from people.

There is no reason to listen to or acknowledge what they are saying.

The best way to get under their skins is to quietly turn your back on them and celebrate the win that was just won with your players.

Musselman’s actions were not only detrimental to the university’s reputation, but also made him a target. Every fraternity and student section in America will see this as a badge to honor Musselman.

To make matters worse, the San Diego State team that lost on the court looked like they were winners almost immediately afterwards.

“” I don’t really know,” Brian Dutcher, San Diego State coach, said. “I was done (the handshake line). I just tell my kids, I tell them every single month, I tell them every other month: ‘You represent yourself, your family, and this university/athletic program third. They represent themselves with a lot of class.” They represent themselves with a lot .”

This story should have been about Kamani Johnson’s heroics and the grit that he brought to the team while wishing them to win. This was his greatest performance in terms of pure impact.

But it’s not. It’s about a grown male holding up a finger “L”, on his forehead.

Fans may not enjoy this, but Musselman is responsible for it.
