A Desoto County (Fla.) high school basketball player, unhappy with being assessed a technical foul and ejected (1:25ish mark) from a game against Port Charlotte last night, shoved and then attacked the referee, tossing him to the floor like a ragdoll. There are no details yet on the player’s name, but we’ll provide updates as soon as they become available. I called and spoke with Desoto County athletic director Jarrett Zolkos this morning, who declined to name the player because he wasn’t sure if the kid was 17 or 18. Zolkos added, “I’ve never seen anything like this.” [Hat Tip to Carl Bleich of the Fort Myers News-Press & SWFL Hoops]
Has actual football started yet?
Not an auspicious start for City.
Spoiler: the Big Ten looks like it will be the odd big five conference left out.
Come for the sports and media chatter; stay for the gambling.
The public attention finally shifted to Hardy, and the Panthers have changed their position.
Kind of an about-face for the brand.
