RIP Stuart Scott: The ESPN Legend Cooler Than The Other Side Of The Pillow


StuartScott1

In September of 1993 a young, University of North Carolina graduate, by the name of Stuart Scott appeared for the first time on ESPN. That day would be the start of an amazing 21 year career with ESPN, and would show the world the passion Stuart had for sports, people, and life.

A lot of us grew up watching Stuart Scott and his fun catch phrases such as, “Booyah” “holla at a playa when you see him in the street!”, “as cool as the other side of the pillow”. Sports are supposed to be fun and Scott definitely brought that to his reporting style. Just check him out down below analyzing a young Vince Carter’s amazing dunks!

In 2007 Stuart Scott was diagnosed with cancer. A cancer that would come back 3 times in 7 years. A cancer that Scott fought every day but continued to live his life to the fullest, still broadcasting for Sportscenter, Monday Night Football games and doing MMA workouts while still receiving treatments. Stuart didn’t let cancer hold him back and that’s why ESPN recently admired their colleague by presenting Scott at the 2014 ESPY’s with the Jimmy V Award. Scott gave an unbelievable and inspiring speech telling everyone, “When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live.”

This morning ESPN paid tribute to their warrior with an amazing segment, showcasing the broadcaster, father, hard worker, and man Stuart Scott has fought so hard to be. He always stayed true to himself and today we thank him for that. Heaven has gained a fighter, thank you Stuart Scott.

Cincinnati Coach Mick Cronin Loses His Cool!!


College coaches have been letting the referees have it this year and Cincinnati coach Mike Cronin is no exception. The Cincinnati coach explodes and gets in the face of the referee which later on players had to intervene to try and save their coach from getting ejected. It’s funny to see the players have more maturity than their elderly coach but at the same time you can’t blame the guy for expressing himself because basketball is filled with emotions.

Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim EXPLODES Over Controversial Charge Call


Today was the much talked about rematch between Syracuse and Duke. The game was a great one but it ended with a controversial charge call which could’ve sent CJ Fair to the line to put Syracuse up by 1 with 11 seconds left. Instead the call made Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim go crazy and get two technical fouls which led to an ejection and a Duke victory.
