CBS Airs Interesting Exchange Between Tom Izzo And Ref

Monday, January 12, 2009

I don't know if the dump button guy at CBS was asleep or what, but the network aired a hilarious exchange between Michigan State Coach Tom Izzo and ref Steve Welmer on Saturday. Welmer hurt his foot during State's game against Kansas, and CBS decided to air the ref's cursing explanation to Izzo. Well the fun didn't just stop there, a spliced in clip that followed offered even more cursing as Izzo explained what they should do with the guy....

"We have to put his ass in a chair at half-court."- Tom Izzo

Hilarious yes, but what the heck was CBS thinking by airing two separate curses during the replay? I love the reaction from Verne Lundquist after the clip too. Go to break! Go to break!

That was Bill Self, not Izzo.

Yeah that was definitely Self saying "lets put his ass in a chair at half court"

So you aren't allowed to say ass or bitch on a CBB broadcast?
