What a complete douchebag. Kennedy deserves to be fired as does the director of bball operations. These guys are idiots and should not be making as much money as they are. What a set of complete idiots.

not sure if AK hit the cab driver.. but he did get thrown out of a bar ... & then cursed the cab driver. had this been players they wouldve at least been suspended. be interesting to see how the trial turns out.

Some of you guys kill me. There's a huge difference between cussing someone and hitting them. The Director of Basketball Operations was out of control- fine. Kennedy while obviously drunk wasn't out of control. You people act like you're not allowed to make a mistake. And if you honestly think a player would be suspended for drinking- not DUI- then you're wrong. Unless there is proof of the assault- TBD in court. On what grounds do you suspend him? Go ahead and feed me the "public figure" or "representative of the university" lines. Bottom line is Kennedy was in the wrong place at the wrong time- yes he controlled that- but it happens to a lot of people.

It's funny that he thought they should let him go because it's a "national incident" ... so clearly he wasn't claiming innocence.

Bama fired a football coach for a somewhat similar incident. There is an unbiased eyewitness who says Kennedey hit him.

Was he arrested for public drunk? Did the bar owner say he was kicked out?
Look- I'm not saying Kennedy isn't at fault here- he is. But some of you people are saying he should lose his job just based on the video. If it ends up being proven he hit the cab driver, then I'm fine with firing him. "Public drunk" is not an offense worthy of losing your job. If this were a habitual thing or he was driving while drunk, it's a different story. Don't tell me to open my eyes when I'm not being a homer. Look at my post history, I consider myself to be relatively rational- especially for this board.

No you didn't. Those were different circumstances. Again, I'm not talking about the assault. If that is proven, then I'm fine with getting rid of him. I'm talking about the video. All it shows on the AK's part is that he was drunk when he was arrested and he tried to talk is way out of it. That alone doesn't give reason for terminated the man's job.

RG is a very level headed poster.

So far, it sounds like you have the cabbie and a doorman who backs up at least part of the cabbie's story vs. the Ole Miss staff basically. It's all he said/she said, so it will be interesting if they can find out what actually happened.

Vandy420
02-03-2009, 10:16 AM
He admits getting into a verbal confrontation with the cab driver, there was also a eyewitness bystander. It was pretty obvious he was trying to talk his way out of getting arrested, not for drunk in public but for assault. The director of bball operations should be fired just from the video alone. Do you want your program in the hands of that guy that was screaming from the car at the cab driver? How pathetic is that?

Both should be fired. But thats my opinion, I have higher standards for my coaches than Ole Miss though so we will see.

I think that he should be fired for being out at a bar at 1:30am while out of town on a basketball trip, while his players are at the hotel. He had a game the same day. What a joke of a coach. That is embarrassing behavior for someone that is supposed to represent your university.

Yep. What AK did seems to be much worse. Still, both coaches publically humiliated their university. Bama dropped ours. OM is standing behind theirs.

God forbid your family disown you for making a mistake as you are a representative of your family. Kevin Stallings is a wonderful man who everyone likes and never makes mistakes. Again if he is proven to have hit the cab driver, I understand firing him. You can't fire someone for getting arrested, period. If you want to fire the DBO for how he acted on the video- I'm cool with that. AK, while drunk, was unreasonable or uncooperative.

I can see why he should he should be fired, but at the same time he'll still be hired by another school after we fire him. He's a great coach and a great recruiter. So to lose him to another school wouldn't be good for us. It's a lose lose situation for Ole Miss. We keep him we lose some rep points or we fire him and he goes to another school and we have to hire a coach who is just as good if not better.

I say keep him. Losing rep points isn't going to change anything for our basketball program.

It's a two faced situation. People say we should fire him and when we do he gets hired somewhere else. He's still the same person. Changing schools isn't going to change his personality. So why if he's fired at one school for acting like an idiot should he be hired at another school? So he can act like an idiot again?!

imo UM would look better to suspend them with pay until the trial. looks to me like a good chance AK will be found guilty if this makes it to trial. based on the witness, the time, the tapes, the earlier bar stuff, etc.

Football player who was arrested for public intoxication last spring. Still on the football team. There is a double standard. I understand coaches are held to higher accountability. My only comment is you don't fire him bc he got drunk. Fire him if the assault charges stick. Fire him if he endangers lives was driving drunk.

That would be a justifiable reaction by the university.

As a side note- the bar OWNER has already said nothing happened and they were not thrown out.

Them being kicked out of the bar is not in question. THe police already were told that by the bar. So I don't think what you are saying is true. There were witnesses of him getting thrown out of the bar.

This is different from a athlete getting arrested for public drunk. THe athlete is not a administrator at the university. He is not responsible for millions of dollars, and multiple people under him, including students.

If the only reason you can give for keeping him is, so another school doesn't get him, that is pretty pathetic. Worry about Ole Miss and what happens to OM and its employees and students not other schools. Right now this is nothing but embarrassing for the university. If you want a violent drunk to be the face of your program go ahead. It's obvious they don't value their reputation from past incidents, and the way they handle this.

If Vandy or (insert favorite school) hired him the table would be turned. You'd say, we got a great coach maybe he has changed and has learned from his mistakes. But since Ole Miss won't fire him it's some sort of injustice to Ole Miss (like you or any other non Ole Miss fan really give a **** how this makes Ole Miss, its employees, or students look and feel).

Who cares if he did it?! If he didn't then good maybe he has been punished enough by the media and public scrutiny. If he did do it then he'll pay a fine, serve jail time, or be on probation for so long. Regardless he's still Ole Miss' coach and I hope he stays because I like the guy.

I'm outspoken about this b/c if it happenned at Bama you better believe people would be dragging Bama through the mud. OM is doing nothing and nobody says a thing. Besides that, assualt and racial slurs are usually no-no's.

If I was OM, i'd try to sweep this under the rug too and hope AK's antics wont come back and embarass the school again. He's a damn good coach imo.

Khayat and Boone? Ole Miss' chancellor and athletic director.

If this happened at Bama it would be the same as it has been for Ole Miss. I hate it when people say if this happened to Bama we'd never hear the end of it. Like y'all are some high and mighty school or something.

That has been in question from the start. The bar owner does not want to go public saying they forced Kennedy out of the bar. His bar is probably a hot spot as far as Athletes are concerned...I hear their food is wonderful:sarcasm: The police were/are actively looking for the people the altercation was with in the bar.
