colin cowherd criticizes coach kOregon knocked Duke out of the NCAA Tournament Thursday night, and if you missed it, the end of the contest was a little dicey. Ducks star Dillon Brooks, on his team’s final possession, launched and hit a three-pointer that was inconsequential to the score – and then celebrated the shot. Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski reportedly told Brooks in the handshake line that he is “too good” of a player to be showing off.As you’d imagine, the hot takes regarding the incident are coming from all angles. Friday morning, FOX Sports radio host Colin Cowherd got involved, criticizing Coach K for the move. The gist? Cowherd doesn’t like how college basketball coaches try to control everything – including the players. He doesn’t think it was Krzyzewski’s place to talk to Brooks..@ColinCowherd on Coach K: You’re getting trounced. You don’t get an opinion on what another player is doing.https://t.co/mJPrsT08OK— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) March 25, 2016What do you think? Was Coach K out of bounds or is this being blown out of proportion?
