Video:Texas A&M Coach Gary Blaire Hits the Dougie at the NCAA Final Four

 

The dancing in basketball is funnier to me than the touchdown victory dances in football. After beating the Irish of Notre Dame and bringing a silence to all the talk of their star player Skylar Diggins, the coach was encouraged into doing the dougie.

Now this may be the worst rendition EVER but hey, who said there was an age limit to modern dance moves, if that’s what we want to call it. Texas A&M took the win over Notre Dame in a 76-70 victory in a game that was everything the men’s wanted theirs to be on Monday night. The men’s game was awful and dreadful to watch, making it the lowest scoring game in NCAA history since 1949. The women’s was the complete opposite and the 6 point victory may even mask to those who didn’t tune in just how close and suspenseful this game was at moments. The Star of the night for Texas A&M was Center Danielle Adams who finished the game with an outstanding 30 pts and 9 boards, elevating Texas to the NCAA Championship title.

I think this argument is brought up more so because of the coach. While on Twitter last night someone mentioned the 2 “cheaterist” coaches go head to head in reference to the Uconn-Kentucky game. Coach Calhoun received suspension from 3 games next season for recruiting violation. Read more about it here and what other penalties the NCAA hit the Uconn athletic department with including scholarship deductions and not limited to future recruiting restrictions. Don’t look at UConn coach Jim Calhoun, who was ruled by the NCAA to have overseen a program that was not in compliance with the rulebook, and equate Calhoun to UConn. He’s the UConn coach, yes. That’s his program. Those are his players.  So who do I have winning? The cinderalla team Butler? Or the less exciting story of the Huskies beating the #8 seed?
