As many college basketball fans suppress their despondency about the recent resignation of Indiana's Mike Davis(Where's this press conference?!), Deadspin reader and Michigan Wolverine Nick Alducci submits this amusing anecdote about soon-to-be-vacationing coach:
I'm currently a senior at Michigan, and I've been going to our basketball games for years (tough, I know). A few friends and I have gradually achieved the seniority to get some primo seats for every home game, first row right behind the visitor's bench. This obviously offers some top-notch heckling opportunities. Anyways, during the IU-UM game in Ann Arbor last year, we were getting on Davis pretty hard. We certainly let him know that there were some rumors about his impending firing, just in case he hadn't heard. So at one point Mike walks over to the water cooler, which brings him about 4 feet directly in front of us. One of my buddies casually asks Mike what he'll be doing next year. Davis looks him in the eye and responds "I'll be working your mother on the corner." Now, we're not offensive fans; we mess around with the players and coaches, but they laugh at us far more frequently than they ever get angry. So Davis's comment just set us off...he didn't have a split second of quiet for the rest of the game.
Not quite sure if this should be treated as breaking news or not? I'm hoping to get in contact with the other fan's mother to substantiate the fact that she is both a whore and Mike Davis will, in fact, be her pimp next year. Journalism is hard, however.
