On Wednesday, Lamar lost against Stephen F. Austin, 62-52, at home. Lamar has dropped two of three, and Coach Pat went off, Coach Bobby style.
Pat said, "“We’ve got the worst group of seniors right now that I’ve ever been associated with. Their mentality is awful. Their attitude is awful. It’s been their MO for the last three years.”
“These guys gotta learn. They gotta grow up. They don’t need to be coddled. They don’t need to be babysat. That’s the problem with society. That’s why we have problems out there, because people don’t make kids accountable.”
“These kids are stealing money by being on scholarship with their approach to things.”
You tell 'em, Coach! Don't you hate it when someone is coddled and then given a job they didn't earn but have a famous name? But that's not a problem with society when, you know, you're a basketball coach and your last name is Knight. Then it's all good.
BTW - Lamar is having a nice season at 17-11 and has qualified for the eight-team Southland Conference tourney.
