As a society, we have to learn to use our words better.
What happened during the Michigan-Wisconsin game and with Juwan Howard and the coaches wasn’t a violent attack. It was a pushing and mushing altercation that started because Wisconsin’s coach Greg Gard put his hands on Howard, and an assistant coach was talking too much sh*t before Howard popped him in the head.
The players like Vogt didn’t go to war. Vogt, who is 7 feet, wasn’t doing anything but looking like he was line dancing. He wanted no parts of a real fight, but then he goes on Twitter talking about he is ready to go to war.
Here were the punishments handed down for the “war.”
Michigan men’s basketball coach Juwan Howard has been suspended five games — the remainder of the regular season — and fined $40,000 for hitting Wisconsin assistant coach Joe Krabbenhoft in the face after Sunday’s game, the Big Ten Conference announced on Monday.
Wisconsin coach Greg Gard was fined $10,000 for violating the conference’s sportsmanship policy but not suspended, while Krabbenhoft is not expected to receive punishment.
Michigan forwards Terrance Williams and Moussa Diabate and Wisconsin guard Jahcobi Neath were each suspended one game. All three appeared to throw punches. The disciplinary actions were imposed by the Big Ten, in conjunction with both schools.
“Big Ten Conference coaches and student-athletes are expected to display the highest level of sportsmanship conduct,” conference commissioner Kevin Warren said in a statement. “I am grateful for the partnership with Michigan athletics director, Warde Manuel, and Wisconsin athletics director, Chris McIntosh.
“Our expectation is that the incident yesterday will provide our coaches and student-athletes with the opportunity to reflect, learn and move forward in a manner that demonstrates decorum and leadership on and off of the court.”
This is how you know Vogt didn’t do anything because he wasn’t suspended.
The video shows he was just standing there with his arms flailing. That is why he is getting cooked on social media right now.
