As much as I don't like Kelvin Sampson, he doesn't deserve that sort of disrespect, no one does.
Did anyone see what Chester Frazier did to Gordon before the game the other night? How did Bruce Webber even allow him to play the game? A decent coach sits him for a stunt like that. The Univ. of Illinois issued somewhat of an apology on Friday but didn't even mention Frazier's incident.
Illinois Statement on Fan Behavior
From Illinois Director of Athletics Ron Guenther and Basketball Coach Bruce Weber
Feb. 8, 2008
Champaign, Ill. - "There was a great college basketball game played Thursday night between the University of Illinois and Indiana University, but the game has been somewhat diminished by inappropriate behavior by a number of fans in attendance. We value the enthusiastic support of the sellout crowds at the Assembly Hall, but above all we take very seriously the reputation of our basketball program and the University of Illinois. The profanity and behavior by a small segment of fans Thursday night is disappointing and intolerable, and for that we apologize to fans of both teams."
I don't even really care about what the fans did, North Carolina fans treated JJ Redick much worse than Illinois fans treated Gordon the other night, but I never saw UNC apologize for it.
