    Wow..one game suspension. :shake:

    PHILADELPHIA -- John Chaney's use of a "goon" is going to have a lasting effect on Saint Joseph's.


    Hawks senior forward John Bryant could miss the rest of the season after an MRI on Thursday showed he had a broken right arm. Bryant was injured on a hard foul two days earlier by a Temple player who Chaney put in the game for the sole purpose of rough play and hard fouls.


    Bryant will miss at least three to four weeks, the school said. The standard recovery time for the injury is eight to 10 weeks, but Bryant will pursue aggressive rehabilitation and be evaluated weekly by team doctors.


    The Hawks (15-9, 12-1 Atlantic 10) clinched a share of their fifth straight conference title, but will likely have to win the conference tournament to earn an NCAA Tournament berth.


    Bryant was knocked hard to the floor on a layup by Nehemiah Ingram and was sprawled on the court for several minutes in Tuesday's win over the Owls. Temple students spit at Bryant while he was on the floor and booed when he was helped up.


    Chaney suspended himself Wednesday for one game and apologized for putting in a player to "send a message" to the Hawks. Chaney turned to the seldom-used 6-foot-8, 250-pound Ingram to even the score after he complained the referees were not calling what he thought were illegal screens by Saint Joseph's.


    Ingram, who was called a "goon" by Chaney after the game, fouled out in 4 minutes. He has played in 14 games, averaging 0.4 points and 0.9 rebounds in 4 minutes per outing.


    Bryant averaged 3.1 points and 2.7 rebounds in 23 games, with seven starts. He started 28 of 30 games last year when the Hawks reached No. 1 in the polls and advanced to the regional final of the NCAA Tournament.


    "I grew up watching Chaney, I still admire him, but I don't really understand the situation fully," Bryant said Wednesday. "It was just weird."

    I think that tells you something right there. I think the NCAA should suspend Chaney myself. Any coach who calls his own players "goons" and uses them for that purpose, should not be a basketball coach. Look into hockey Chaney.

    I have always respected Chaney, but this is pretty stupid.

    My dad played college ball at one of the better NAIA schools. One time his freshman year a guy on the other team was on fire. My dad didn't play much at that point so his coach put him in telling him to, "Put that guy in the stands". My dad went in and gave the guy a forearm putting him two rows deep in the stands. He then helped the guy up like he didn't mean to do it so that he didn't get ejected. The guy didn't make another shot the rest of the game. My dad said that move earned him his scholly for the next season.
    Personally if I'm trying to foul someone in my rec league I'm going to get my moneys worth out of it. Being a football player doesn't help. I drove a guy into the ground last week.

    Time for old Chaney to get shit-canned!

    Problem is, Jesse Jackson will be on the first plane to Philly if they fire him.

    He's had a great career but some of the stuff he has pulled borders on abuse.

    It reminds me of that goofy Robby Benson movie, 1 on 1.
    The coach had him play a one, on one game with a tough guy, and he got his butt kicked.

    This type tactic happens all the time. I am not taking up for Chaney, but he was alot more candid than most coaches when they use similar tactics.

    gregorylee I'd rather be napping!!


    Yep, if your going to talk shit about Chaney then you have to talk the same shit about Red Aurbach, Bill Russel and pretty much every other coach. The only difference is he talked about it, this shit has been going on forever and as he said, his only mistake was not teaching the guy how to give a hard foul.

    Yeah, injuring pro players is the same thing as injuring college players. :roll1:
     
  10. the manner in which it is done is important. many people consider all of uc and msu teams goons, they hack and bang with the best. i would of had to see the game to take a stance on this one.

    PHILADELPHIA -- John Chaney was suspended for the rest of the regular season by Temple on Friday for ordering rough play by one of his players, who proceeded to foul out in 4 minutes against Saint Joseph's and broke an opponent's arm.
    The Hall of Fame coach had suspended himself for one game Wednesday and apologized for his actions. He will miss Temple's home game against Massachusetts on Saturday and road games against Rhode Island and La Salle, before returning for the Atlantic 10 tournament.

    Chaney, angered by what he thought were illegal screen by Saint Joseph's, put in seldom-used 6-foot-8, 250 pound Nehemiah Ingram against the Hawks on Tuesday to "send a message." Ingram fouled forward John Bryant hard, sending him sprawling to the ground and breaking his arm. Jones will likely miss the rest of the season.

    Temple president David Adamany announced the suspension in a statement.

    "I have advised coach Chaney of this decision and coach Chaney has again expressed his deepest regrets for his actions," Adamany said.

    Chaney's only other suspension came in 1994, when Temple suspended him for one game after he threatened then-Massachusetts coach John Calipari during a postgame news conference.

    methomps an imbecility, a stupidity without name

    Did Coach K use goons?

    I didn't see the game, but I thought it was an interesting blurb in light of this Chaney mess
