This is getting old, and fast. The national media won't shut up about it and continuous quotes from Houston's basketball program keep it in the news cycle.
Yes, this is another article about Houston's Aubrey Coleman stepping on Chase Budinger's face and shoulder. But the object of this article isn't to discuss the incident, it's to convince everyone to shut up so we can all move on with your lives.
To Arizona fans: It happened, get over it. Chase is okay, Aubrey apologized and while Houston coach Tom Penders won't shut up about it, we can't always get what we want. It's time to move on.
To Houston fans: There are none, so that takes care of that.
To Arizona basketball players and coaches: Thanks for letting it go and moving on. You're in the clear.
To Houston basketball players and coaches: Why are you still talking about this every chance you get? You have a good basketball team, probably better than Arizona's. You are probably making the NCAA Tournament. Your biggest game of the season is this week against Memphis.
Why are you talking about Budinger and Coleman still? It really makes no sense.
And now you're getting the FBI involved? Really? Because Coleman has angry mail with some racial slurs? Look, I'm not sympathizing with anyone stupid enough to send a racist e-mail to Coleman but it's nothing to warrant an FBI investigation, that's for sure.
On top of that, Penders is now blaming ESPN for doctoring video of the incident, and also is claiming that the video was wrong and that Budinger had his shoulder stepped on but not his face.
Tom, please explain the bruise on his face. Once you do that then it will be a valid argument. And until you can do that, please pipe down and worry about basketball again.
I'm sorry for keeping discussion going on such a stupid topic, but I felt like some of the guilty parties here had to be called out for their refusal to drop the subject.
Time to move on
