Just watched this clip of New Mexico coach Steve Alford calling Jonathan Tavernari, a BYU player, “an asshole” after a game.

According to the comments on YouTube, Tavernari is an ass. According to the comments on YouTube, Alford is a hero. According to the comments on YouTube, the player was wrong and the coach was right.


Tavernar could be a member of Nazi Youth ’10, and it still wouldn’t justify Alford—a head coach, an adult, a leader—cursing at him. Anyone who thinks he might have been justified is lost … because a coach would never, ever, ever be justified in behaving such a way. Never.

1 thought on “Pathetic”

  1. Dude, relax. Both parties apologized almost immediately after, the conference has reprimanded Alford, and Alford himself acknowledged that his conduct was inexcusable. That said, everything points to the fact that Tavernari is a clown, so it’s hard to shed too many tears for him.
