Should Morehead coach Sean Woods should be Suspended for Shoving player?

Morehead took it the defending champs Kentucky Wildcats and went on a 16-0 run,only to lose the game..But all everyone seems to be talking about is head coach Sean Woods shoving guard Devon Atkinson in the back and screaming in his face,bringing him to tears after he committed a foul...This is a concern to alot of people because just last week Woods got in the face of another player...

For years college coaches had gotten physical with players Frank Martin hit a player..Last season Kentucky coach John Calipari could be heard cursing forward Terrance Jones...Jones tweeted the next day,saying it was cool,and that it was similar to a parent disciplining their kid....Woody Hayes once hit a player..Bobby Knight one of the most colorful coaches ever has a history of yelling at players,but it was his choking of a player led to his dismissal at Indiana...Thursday morning a few of the Morehead players said they don't take it personal when Woods yells or screams at them,they say he only does it because he wants them to be better..

On First & 10 thursday morning resident loud mouth Stephen A. Smith said Woods should be suspended,alot of people agree with him..They think some type of action should be taken against Woods for his controversial bahavior......

But all of us that have played ball,have had that coach that screams or seem to be hard on a player,but few of us have it play out on national tv....

I don't think so, our coach

I don't think so, our coach does that to us he yells in our face, pulls us by our jersey, etc. I don't agree with it but he won a championship run at North Carolina so...

Probably not, but he needs to

Probably not, but he needs to be publicly admonished and required to undergo some anger management training. That should be enough to calm down his sideline behavior. This is a guy who I read was dissappointed by not being hired by bigger programs. If he still wants to be hired by bigger schools then he's gonna have to at least tweak his behavior. I remember watching him in the Maryland game and I thought he was just like another Frank Martin type or whatever, but he's beyond that. He goes beyond intense and into the angry territory.

I was watching the game

I was watching the game against Kentucky last night with some ladies and each of them wanted Atkinson to hit him......They were more interested in seeing a fight then watching the game....

But i fear something will come out of this, if he doesnt change....He was worse than Bobby Knight....Some players that played for him at Mississippi Valley State said they were happy to see him go...

No coach should EVER put his

No coach should EVER put his hands on a player. EVER. You're undermining what ever leadership the player has, and your pretty much saying, "If you mess up and I get upset, I can physically take it out on you." Coach. Calm the &$#%#&@! down. You can yell and curse, but dont touch anyone. We learn this in elementary school. Keep your hands to yourself. If an adult cant understand this, then he doesnt deserve to teach young people. Period, end of discussion.

To everyone saying he should

To everyone saying he should be suspended or fired quit it.

Bob Knight used to beat his players up literally and never got into trouble for it until 20 years later, the coach was being tough on the player, and Atkinson even said on his twitter him and his coach cool, he was yelling at him trying to just motivate him.

There's a difference. Bobby

There's a difference.

Bobby Knight was a proven winner and champion. Guys would put up with it because they knew they were going to learn from him. What in the world is Sean Woods going to show these guys if he hasn't proved anything either.

I'm surprised the kid didn't pop him, had I been in that situation, my pride would have taken over and I would have pushed back. Call it lack of self-control but there's no way someone's gonna make me look like a b!tch on television or behind closed doors.

@FastandFurious I see what

@FastandFurious

I see what your saying about bobby knight... but regardless... it didn't make it right that he used to beat up his own guys that he recruited and finally got in trouble 20 yrs later..to put it into perspective i guess.. what if u had a son and he played for a coach like bobby knight and you found out he was being thrown around by his coach??.. somewhat like when the saints got in trouble for the bounty... sure they won a SB by implementing that system and translating it into the games (even tho there unstoppable offense is what won them a SB mainly)... but it still didn't make it right.... you can use yelling and swearing as motivation... why? because it works for a lot of players out there (worked for me)... but being psychical just isn't right... these are still kids your talking about... its just bball... if ever became a coach for college, and even as much as I love the game.. i wouldn't be able to allow myself to get psychical on any player

every1 on espn saying 'im old

every1 on espn saying 'im old school and believe in that &$#%#&@!' ok thats cool but if you do that to the wrong player then do it @ your own risk...i give atkinson credit for keeping his cool but that coulda turned into a 'latrell spreewell' situation quickkk
