Jim Calhoun sat down with Jim Nantz, in an interview that aired at halftime of the UNC-GT game today, and addressed his feelings following his run-in with a reporter questioning his salary. While the interview basically went the way you would think (Calhoun didn't apologize), it was the reaction of Seth Davis following the piece that caught my attention. Davis stated that he thought that Calhoun should have apologized for the way he handled it, which brought out a tremendous rebuttal from Greg Gumbel. Here's the clip....
"I don't mind the way he handled it, because if your mission is to go out there and be a jerk, and someone recognizes you as such, I don't see a problem with saying you're a jerk."- Greg Gumbel
Well said. Obviously he should have handled it better, but there's no reason for an apology.
