    Hawaii football coach Greg McMackin shoved a foot or two in his mouth today.

    Forgetting the slur for a moment, but the coach of a team that does a Haka before every game is making fun of someone else's pre-game ritual?
  5. If you had given me the story with the name redacted and given me McMackin against the rest of the D-I field on which coach said it all, I'd have put the house on McMackin. Not because he's a bigot, but because he rambles and rambles and rambles and rambles.

    Suspended 30 days without pay and will lose an additional 7 percent of his salary (about $169,000):


    The Warriors open the season Sept. 5 against Central Arkansas, so he'll be back by the week of the first game ...

    Athletic director Jim Donovan said McMackin will remain with the team on a voluntary basis during the suspension.


    Doesn't that kind of negate the point of a suspension? He still loses the paycheck and all, but that isn't the entire point here.

    That is some high-fallutin' schedule making right there, boy.

    As if mid-majors didn't have enough trouble getting respect.

    Way to go, douchebag.

    The guy lost almost $170,000 in salary. I'd say that's a pretty stiff punishment.

    Can't believe this stupid dude didn't lose his job.

    Mike Price did at Alabama for being stupid.
