That's the 2013 coaching style of basketball head coach Mike Rice at Rutgers University. (The same school were Tyler Clementi committed suicide in 2010).
Here's a compilation video (the lo-lights) of some of his practice sessions:
Good for the players for not fighting back. If he touched me, I'd kill him. Choke him out, they'd have to revive him. Not kidding.
Unreal! Fire him now.
See him at the end? He looks crazy.
I love it when daddy plays Rough!
Hmm...he has a twitter account that's probably going to be getting a bit busy.
Rutgers should be bombarded with emails deriding the school for supporting a coach who is lower than gutter feces. The school should shut its doors with shame, then the place should be burned to the ground to purify the gound they have soiled.
Then Rutgers should disperse their endowment to all the gay people they can find to prove they are truly sorry for being gutter snipe. The they should set up their own guillotine and executed all Rutger's Administration, Coaches and Instuctors along with tutors and all breathing bodies within the Athletic department with all jocks.
Rutgers should be fprced tp become a Jehovahs Witness school too.
When I thnk of some more acts of contrition I will post them.

Instead of going to twitter, go to the university. This poison should not be allowed. He poisons people of all orientations. He is a hate monger, and does not belong in an educational institution. It nurtures the concept that homosexuality is disgusting and to be mocked. And at the same school where three years prior, a guy killed himself due to his orientation being made public? What an outrage!
Contact the school and demand they remove poison from their roster. Tell your friends to do so, also. This is not okay.
They should have fired that asshole.
The coach and the athletic director, who knew about this back in December (!), should both be fired immediately.
Rutgers had a little hissy fit when members of their women's team were called "nappy headed hos" by Don Imus.
Now let's see how they react to this by one of their own employees. Of course academia is ruled by PC, and PC is about double standards. Some groups are sacred and to be protected and some are not. Let's see where their priorities really lie.
I wouldn't mind watching r1 choke r8.
Maybe it's not common behavior for college level coaches, but his kind of behavior is common at the high school level. My basketball coach wasn't much better, and the football coach was a sadist. The latter turned out to also be a wife beater and child abuser who committed suicide when his wife had enough of it and left him.
I'm lost for words. This is unbelievable in 2013.
That's because you ARE r1 after having dumped your cookies, r14.
You're what's known as a lying sack of shit r17.
Which is more appalling: that he treats other human beings like this? or that Rutgers thought a little slap on the wrist was sufficient?
Good point r13. This is far worse than being non-pc and offending somebody. This is abuse of power and authority. That man should never be in a position of authority over anyone again.
Did you see how the players just turned their heads and took it? It's sickening. They know he could ruin their careers. This reminds me of Bob Knight who got away with shit like this at Indiana for years. Rutgers has a chance to make a principled stand and stop this now.
I think you mean yum butch Mary! R8
Fuck off , drama queen faggot at r1. You are why they hate us.
It would be fun to see the Rutgers coach deal with r22.
Death to America.
He looks like a walking heart attack, and the sooner the better.
Now THAT I'd watch.
not one of those near-fatal ones either
"Tim Pernetti must fire Mike Rice or his own job at Rutgers is at stake"
He's an asshole, and in my experience most coaches are. The coaches at my high school were similar to that, and most of the time I watch a basketball or football game on tv (any level, college or professional) I see appalling behavior. Remember the asshole brothers this past Super Bowl?
are they going to say: "keep him, he wins games!" and "don't question the coach, they win games and we live through the team!"
Shame on him. Just shame on him.
Oh shut up, R22. You're a cunt, the sooner you end your life the better. You're the cause of cancer.
Insincere "sorry if I offended anyone" apology and phony rationalization in four... three... two...
The reason nothing was done last December is because Rutgers had been accepted into the Big 10 Conference but there were "details" that had to be worked out (money, of course). The scandal would not have helped the case for the Big 10. You are talking a lot of money, and questions people are asking about where is it going.
The men's basketball program is not suffering from Rice's coaching. The school would like to get rid of him, but cannot. Rumor has it Rice knows too much.
Just a rumor.
[quote] "You fucking fairy...you're a fucking faggot"
Dad? Is that you?
Someone should kill R13.
This thread really got interesting quickly! Because I hate to be left out: it'd be great if R22 shot R32 in the knee with a sniper rifle atop a tower on the Rutgers campus.
Who still says fairy?? It sounds very 1970's.
Magic Johnson should comment on this.
This is just good masculine gaybro behavior. It'll toughen the guys up. Especially if they really are acting like a fucking fairy.
He's a positive role model for the future of gay rights. Get with the program, dudes.
R38 = my new BFF
Do homophobes really think this shit works? And, in this day of closeted politicians being out after spouting anti-gay hate, does this guy really think that no one suspects he's a closeted mo?
He should be fired for assaulting his players.
But calling them faggots and fairies? Big fucking deal. Why do you Marys get so sensitive about this stuff?
R14/R18 - I wouldn't mind watching R1 choke R8 either. As a side note, who knew Jessica Fletcher, R17, had gotten into computer forensics at this ripe old age?
He was fired by Rutgers today.
According to CNBC, Rutgers knew about this last fall. They fined and suspended him for a few games, but they were willing to forgive and forget until this went viral.
It really makes you wonder how many other skeletons are hiding in big time college sports. You would think that after Ohio State, they would be on edge, but apparently not.
He's now been canned.
Of course, having 3 losing seasons in a row didn't help his cause.
If he had one the NCAA, you better believe he'd still be working and given a lifetime contract.
No wonder then, that they had three losing seasons in a row. Team morale must have been at an all time low with that idiot at the helm.
He deserves assault charges an jail time.
Tim Pernetti, who made the decision to "rehabilitate" Rice, needs to go too!
Throwing balls at point blank range at their heads and crotches? uh-uh. Bye bye, Angry.
Just a good ol boy letting off some steam.
R13, this has nothing to do with political correctness in academia. This has to do with the power of sports programs in colleges and universities. If the coach and team are bringing in money, the administration will forgive a great many things. At Rutgers, they gave Schiano sweetheart deals with housing and other perks, because he promised to turn around the football program.
The irony is that Rice was not even an effective coach!
Believe me, if I acted that way in a classroom, I would be summarily dismissed.
The boys basketball coach at my high school was like this, a verbally and psychically abusive bully. One day some of the players came into class talking about how he had pushed and some said actually shaken a junior high kid that was a bit "slow" for not doing a drill correctly or something, even the players who were used to his shit seemed to have been freaked out by his level of rage. A few years afterward he was coaching the girls volley ball team and apparently got so worked up during a match that he had a mild heart attack and I'm ashamed to say I was a little bit happy about it, especially after he had to retire. He also was "inappropriate" with a female student but nothing came of that.
Oh, my father sent me to Rutgers
To teach me to be a man.
Then the coach called me a faggot
And the BOG gave him the can.
The college already knew about the way he treated the students and had seen tapes several months ago. The only reason they fired him is because the tape went public.
This seems like closeted behavior. Is he?
When I was a kid I use to chew on my moms used cuntpads.
I agree,r56. He must have rubbed out a few many times thinking about abusing those hot,sweaty young men...
I'm still hung-up on the fact that he'd have players run drills in the nude. Where were the cameras then, huh?
IIRC, Rutgers is a public university (i.e., run by the State of New Jersey). So there's really no excuse for such behavior being funded by taxpayers.
May he remain unemployed for the rest of his life, and may he never live down the embarrassment.
My macho high school football coach was a homophobic ex-marine who loved sucking cock and yes, I (and a lot of other guys) know that for a fact.
I really wondered what would have happened if he had even a medium level of success. He wasn't a very successful coach in terms of wins and losses, so the firing is even easier.
Just wonder if the cover up would be even greater and if there would have been resistance to the firing once the video came out if he had been a winning coach.
Played teams sports my whole youth. Coaches could be dicks and they definitely yelled a lot. I remember a few isolated instances of gay baiting - telling a player they were a sissy, but nothing like this.
He's a sociopath. There are many "tough" coaches, and there are yellers and screamers. And, there are those that cross lines of offensiveness to some degree.
But, this really seems like he has deep issues. Even my most obnoxious coaches I felt like there was a point to their rage. There's no point here. He's on a power trip, he's out of control.
Ugh, and Rutgers is going to join the Big 10, simply because it's located in a large media market. It's such a bad addition in light of the fact that the administrators do a horrible job or running the university.
They should be forced to name the next stadium or gym they build after Tyler Clementi.
The subject line of this thread made me HOT!
I love hearing that when my face is being pushed down into a pillow and i'm being thoroughly punished.
I can't believe he made over $650,000 last year. And the professors make about 1/10 that if lucky. Is it any wonder 'murca has become a third world country?
He's too plain looking for me to forgive him. Burn him!
"My macho high school football coach was a homophobic ex-marine who loved sucking cock"
Isn't that the best place to hide: in plain sight? Why, who would think a homophobic married Christian veteran jock liked guys?
[quote]"You fucking fairy...you're a fucking faggot"
Rice should be arrested for assault ASAP! They have it on tape. He kicked a player. Threw balls at their head. That's assault.
Actually, it's battery.
That's one guy who didn't get the memo.He thinks he's still in the 1950's.Why shatter his illusions?He will never fit in or survive the 21st century.He shouldn't even be told their are women in the army,and if a woman ever shows up on his team he'll probably laugh himself into a heart-attack or get fired for feeling her up and go commiit suicide in his basement,if he has one.Wouldn't it be funny if the guy had said "Yeah,I'm a fucking faggot!How did you know?Have you been following me?"
I hope he calls a black player a nigger next.Maybe we'll all realize they are just words,or he won't be a problem anymore!
r32, knows too much about what--NCAA violations, or something worse?
BTW, firing this guy is pointless. They need to fire the person/people who allowed it.
From a Machiavellian perspective, doesn't the administration check their coaching staffs out in the post-Knight, even post-Sandusky era?
If I was in senior administration there, and my school was working for years towards promotion, I'd be damn sure there were no camera phoned skeletons in my closet.
My mother saw the video and said, "Put a nun in there, and it was worse than that." She was describing her Catholic grade school days.
[quote]BTW, firing this guy is pointless. They need to fire the person/people who allowed it.
A number of faculty members are demanding that the university's president resign . . .
R81 If he was also president during the Tyler Clementi suicide, he should also be fired.
I remember back in the '90s, people talking about how great a school Rutgers was if you're gay.
R82 - better than the 1990s, did you know that when Rutgers' gay/lesbian student organization was founded (in December 1969), it was the second ever such group in the nation?
[quote] A number of faculty members are demanding that the university's president resign . . .
Oh please - I would have made the same initial decision he did.
No one wants to hair-trigger terminate someone who is charged with bringing in the university's main source of revenue. Yes, that is basketball and football coaches' primary role.
In terms of the slurs, they are no longer literal.
To get your players to perform, you have to apply the pressure. This is not Girl Scout camp.
I worry that this is overly PC and risks starting a backlash.
And you're fucking fired.
Of course the coach should be fired. No question. No one should coach like that, ever.
He is out of control and he knew it and he is now paying the price (his career is over and his family hiding at home due to shame.)
Yes people get away with treating others as he did- that does not mean he should however. Has not to do with PC. Firing balls at player's heads or shoving them from behind is both abusive and cowardly.
He got what was coming to him.
His smile definitely sets off my gaydar, when juxtaposed with his hyper-man homophobic business nonsense, which is taken directly from the script, "I'm not gay, my boyfriend is."
R81 R83 That intersects with my college years. I got into Rutgers, but it was too close to home. I would have lived in a dorm, but my parents would have been calling all the time and wanting me to come home on weekends, if only to see my dog, who died my freshman year of a broken heart. Ohhhhhhh...I should have gone to Rutgers.
