What a little ****. Gets in the coach's face, is pushed away by a UH player, gives the "c'mon, you want some of this" motion ... and then promptly turns around and runs away up the aisle like the drunk little ***** he is. :rolling_eyes:
He should have gotten the Rick Monday treatment.
Ouch. That guy is done. Drunk and stupid, yeah... But, damn. Sucks for that guy.
"Yeah, Dad... I, uhhhh, got expelled... I ran on the basketball court in the middle of the game... Hawaii... Dad? You still there?"
kid was an idiot, no argument, but what happened earlier that drew Arnold that far out onto the court?
Could've gone Matt Diaz too.
At the beginning of the video, one of the UH players gets stuffed twice. When the players start coming back down the court, you can see the UH player sort of "punching" the air, probably pissed there was no foul called, and likely dropped some colorful language. He then get t'ed up, and the UH coach comes out.
arrest and fine him, no problem. but to consider expulsion, cmon ???
Drunk and stupid...bad combination
Yes. Actually, a year in jail on top of that should send an appropriate message.
That's a bit over-the-top in my opinion. The kid got drunk and acted like a moron end of story. Suspend him, kick him out even, but jail time is a bit extreme. He never actually came close to causing harm to anyone at all. In fact, he seemed more in control than the coach of Hawaii.
You want to deter this from happening not encourage it.
Not sure about a year in jail, but some time wouldn't be a bad thing IMO.
I had a professor, Econ I think, who used to say if you really wanted to discourage jay-walking, the city should but up machine gun turrets at every intersection.
A hefty fine, week in jail, community service, perma ban from all sporting events, and suspension for a semester is pretty tough penalty. I agree that expulsion and a year in jail is a bit over the top.
Ok here's the thing people don't go jaywalking seeking attention. People do this kind of thing to get on SportsCenter. This game likely would NOT have even been on SportsCenter if this didn't happen. Generally speaking, the broadcasters don't even show these things so they don't want to be seen as rewarding bad behavior.
Too bad the UH players didn't stomp the ever-loving **** out of that guy for running onto the court.
I wish ESPN had blurred this idot's face out when they showed all the replays of the incident. Why give him is minute of fame? It only contributes to the problem.
Something to add is 15-20 years ago, this person wouldn't have gotten their due. But given the fact everyone in the arena has a cell phone and some want to capture it, it's bound to find it's way onto the internets. I'll admit when I'm watching a baseball game and they don't show it, I go on Youtube and look for it. It's hard to avoid a trainwreck.
Now fat, drunk and stupid is the sweet spot combination. Things tend to improve at that point.
Disagree. Show his stupid face so every chic on campus can see who the douche is.
Can anyone imagine this kid waking up the next morning and contemplating what he'd done the night before? I've done things in my life I'm still embarrassed about. This guy will think about what a fool he looked like for the rest of his life.
He should be locked up just for wearing those skinny pants.
Reading some of the comments makes it sound like he ran on the court and physically assaulted the coach. Charge him with trespassing and give him some community service.
Expulsion and a year is appropriate. Longer if it would have become physical. Players and coaches shouldn't have to have this as a concern at a game.
The point is it could be very dangerous, like when that Royals first base coach was attacked.
Given the proximity the court and lack of barriers for basketball especially in the college game, it's always been the easiest to do something if a fan really wanted to. I'm surprised something more dangerous hasn't happened.
Fans do not belong on the playing surface anymore than players belong in the stands. One of these days, someone is going to be very seriously injured because of this stupidity.

So you punish him for what he could have done? Let's put every guy in jail, they have the proper equipment for rape.
You punish him for what he did.
so you think a year in jail is an appropriate punishment?
If that was the sentence that was handed down, I wouldn't mind.
