Hoops Coach Kevin Borseth - Video of Podium-Pounding Postgame Meltdown

Kevin Borseth is the University of Michigan women's basketball coach, and he's VERY passionate about offensive rebounding, as you'll see in this video. His team lost to Wisconsin and as you can guess, did very poorly in offensive rebounding.

"I'm very, very, very, very, frustrated," he says. Yeah, coach, we can tell! He said the team had talked about how important offensive boards were: "It was all about offensive rebounds. We totally, totally, totally, totally, emphasized that." And discussing the physical play needed to get offensive boards, he adds, "Maybe we should put some football pads on them."

He's obviously very unhappy, and pounds the podium to make his point. But hey, at least he doesn't swear! I actually admire his passion for the game, and the fact that he didn't blame any particular players, or the refs.
