Thursday’s call-in was met with some lewd comments from perverted pranksters posing as reporters. Apparently the questions was even worse than those asked to the southern belles a few days before, since the CHICAGO TRIBUNE claimed that “most are not suitable for print.”
Like the SEC, Big East officials aren’t sure how the callers got hold of the conference’s number. But as the dirty questions went on, many callers were refused access to the coaches - even those that may have been actual reporters. So, what were they asking?
What we could piece together, St. John’s coach Norm Roberts was supposedly asked if he got his rocks off watching his players shower. Meanwhile, Marquette’s Tom Crean just laughed at the absurdity, and wished his fellow coached good luck in dealing with the deviants.
However, UConn’s Smilin’ Jim Calhoun wasn’t joining in on the chuckles, commenting, “I wish some people would get a life.”
Big East associate commissioner John Paquette said that a replay of Thursday’s colorful conference wouldn’t be available. Too bad - having such an audio recording would be a valuable commodity - like owning video proof of Dana Jacobson’s recent performance.
