Took a look at the Kansas board and the discussion about the brawl and Self's attitude and or actions weren't too flattering. I thought the NCAA went pretty easy on everyone as well, especially the KU players involved with the suspensions given. If Kentucky had been involved with something like that, we would probably have been smacked with the big hammer.
To me, Message boards sometimes bring about more negative comments than the average fan feels about things. Some live on them and even post during games which is ridiculous to me. I enjoy watching the game too much to do anything like that and won't even post at halftime. I try to see both sides of things but there are always things to point negatively about. Living in Indiana when Knight was the coach for a long time, some of the IU fans would just laugh at the shenanigans he pulled off including press conferences. As long as he was winning, he could act and do just about anything until he hit the wall and then things changed. To me, Cal needs to redeem himself this season or the next, or the natives might become more restless than they are now. That last statement goes for a lot of coaches nowadays though.
