Mike Jarvis Freaks Out

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed or follow us on Facebook. Thanks for visiting!

Now that he’s moved on from taking down St Johns’ basketball program, Mike Jarvis makes his living coaching the Florida Atlantic Owls basketball team. Currently, the FAU Owls are 4-16 (0-8 in the Sun Belt); obviously not as successful as some hoped when the Jarvis hiring was announced. However, his brief tenure might have come to a head last night when Jarvis decided he’d let his frustrations out on the officials.

The result of Jarvis’ outbursts? Four–count em, FOUR– technical fouls, being ejected from the game and escorted out of the gym via police escort. Oh, and his team lost the game after giving up the lead, courtesy of the resulting technical foul free throws.

But before that the game spun when Jarvis was called for four straight technicals. It turned out to be a 10-point swing, because ULM made 7 of the 8 free throws then got a rebound and scored a 3–point shot, so FAU;s 31-30 lead was suddenly a 40-31 deficit with 2 minutes left in the half, and while the Owls clawed and fought, they couldn’t come back.

The piece’s author, Ted Hutton, expects Jarvis to suspended for a game or two; however, considering his record at FAU, is firing a suitable punishment or will the university wipe their hands of the whole mess?

NBA Fan Ejected for Gambling Reference?

Ethan over at SECFootballBlogger and NESWsports sent me a heads-up about this and I’m not sure what to make of it. Apparently, the fan in the video got ejected because he was making comments related to gambling and the ref, Joe Forte, overheard and was not pleased.

The fan set up a YouTube page explaining his side of things, complete with the vid-cap of him getting escorted out. However, you cannot hear what’s being said between the fan and Forte. Take a look for yourself:

The YouTuber responsible for the upload offered a long explanation on the video page, offering an explanation of what we are watching:


referee(with no hesitation): THATS NOT FUNNY!THATS NOT FUNNY!YOUR OUTTA HERE!!

Next, he repeatedly blows his whistle and signals for a red suited security guard to eject me from the game!(you can see the worst GM of all time Elgin Baylor in the backround). then the nba lead security questions me in the tunnel for 10 minutes and writes a report for league officials to investigate. he then takes my tickets and orders 10 red suited security guards to throw me out of the arena immediately(which is not shown on camera).

He goes on to say he’s seeking legal satisfaction and is planning on suing the NBA, although, perhaps this is just said poster being flippant:

[FOLLOW UP]- i am currently seeking legal actions against the clippers, the NBA, and commissioner David Stern.

i’m seeking a $2.11 Billion lawsuit for fraud, gambling conspiracy, extortion, discrimination, pain and suffering,punitive damages, and a $10.50 New Castle.

Um, that’s Newcastle… Considering the timing of this, I’d say someone’s getting their April Fool’s Day on a little early.
