DeMarcus Cousins: SEC player of the week

A U of L fan asked me after Saturday’s game whether the SEC would suspend DeMarcus Cousins for his forearm to Jared Swopshire of University of Louisville.

“Suspend him?” I said. “They’ll probably name him player of the week.”

Today, Cousins was named SEC player of the week.

Beyond the forearm, his 18-point, 18-rebound performance was the real deal. I’ve seen plenty of guys like Cousins, from an attitude standpoint. As he matures, he’s going to be something else.

Hopefully, he can subdue his inner Rasheed Wallace.

  1. Hey Eric. You act about as stupid as your profile picture. Can you not get off the Kentucky Wildcats balls????????? Demarcus Cousins had every right to do that to FLOPSHIRE. Open your eye MR Sportscolunmnist and write about the real team. You remind me of Rick Bozo.

  2. Oh please! Get off your high horse. Even if Coach Cal said to "…kick his ass after the game…" so what? If you're so naive to think that coaches don't – or shouldn't – exchange a trash-talk response in the heat of the moment to dial-down an explosive situation, then perhaps you should move over to the Lifestyles and Garden section of the Courier. I thought Coach Cal handled it appropriately considering all of the media rivalry hype these young – and I do mean young – college players have had to endure leading up to the game.

  3. Calamari should go back to Memphis where the thugs are not noticed so much. Take he Cousin with him. This happens every time in Rupp. Seems the officials are afraid to go againt the crowd
