That Rush story enrages me. As Rocco says, the Pac-12 is HORRENDOUS when it comes to officiating, especially in basketball.
Listen, coaches are nutjobs, even ones at the high school that I have to deal with on a game-by-game basis. But I'd love to know why Rush would even think of targeting a coach who hadn't had even one technical all season long. And joking or not (which I don't think he was, given what CBS reported), you can never ever say something like that. But Rush did work the NBA with Donaghy so maybe there's a tie there.
