So tell me what you're referring to specifically? How is he representing the university poorly?
I mean seriously, so far you've mentioned his "antics" but haven't said anything other than walking too far outside the coaching box and coming unglued at an opposing coach at a bad time.
The former was an act he apologized for, and the latter is what I'd describe as a personality tic. It would be like criticizing Thad Matta for chewing gum.
In general, Crean has represented the university quite well. While I can understand why he rubs some people the wrong way, that's a far cry from poorly representing the university.
The incident Sunday shows a character flaw. Stay tuned. He also had a sore loser incident with Matta last year. The drama has only begun' his celebrity will only exacerbate the weakness. Pride comes before a fall.
