And I don't get all of the commentary about throwing him out of the game. I've never seen a player thrown out of a game for something like that.
CBS is the only ones throwing a fit over it. I turned it on SportsCenter after the game and it was shown but barely mentioned.
What I am more interested in is what happened with Eric Bledsoe and Reginald Delk eight seconds into the game. Bledsoe is the opposite of Cousins and is a lot more mild mannered. Don't really know what was said that Cal had to pull him out that quick.
As for Cousins, and I can say this given we had Slick Rick before you guys, that was Pitino's gameplan going in was to try to get Cousins to lose his temper and get him to go off and get tossed. It almost worked, but Cousins tore Louisville up something fierce. Had Cousins been tossed, I would venture to say Kentucky likely would have lost.
