Him and the kid he was trying to punch are so lucky he missed. Lets hope Rick does the right thing and adds a few more games.

No way they suspend him for more than one game. Next up is CS Northridge. Next up afer that is UK.

Petino do that right thing? Sure. Right after ESPN stops fawning over Kentucky every year. He won't add any further suspension; but, contact with the referee (looks like Harrel pulled the ref's are trying to get free) may force the league's hand for an additional suspension. ESPN would be ripped.

Looks like the Ref hurt himself in the heat of the moment. Not really mush contact between him and Harrell.

Chane Behanan should have been there to calm the UL boys down with some ganja.

Ironic that this happens in the same week that he calls out his teammates for being selfish.

There's nothing more selfish than letting your emotions get the best of you and costing your team.

The ACC won't do diddly. What are you thinking?

UNC & FSU & Miami. This is standard ok stuff.

I saw no hit to the ref. Why were the coaches heaved? Too much lip??

It looked like in the replay the guard that was on the ground gave him a quick punch to the balls and that's what set him off.

A lot of over-reaction here. Harrell was on the ground, was getting swiped at when he no longer had the ball, got up, threw a half punch/glorifed closed-fist push, practically whiffed and was pulled away by his teammates. God only knows what happened to the ref here. The slow mo shows the punch didn't come close to touching him. The only contact was him trying to grab Harrell to break things up.

Basketball is a physical sport. Tempers will flare from time to time. It's not like he sucker-punched someone that wasn't looking or went into the stands. Throw him out of the game if you want but this does not warrant a suspension in my book.

The only pathetic part of this is Pitino talking smack to the WKU coach. Classy.

Maybe the WKU coach was asking Pitino for any good Itallian Restaurant recommendations in Louisville...

All assumption. Looked to me like he took the kids head with the ball then threw his leg out at him. He deserves a suspension at least one game. Doubt he gets more with UK next, that's just the way it goes. It's not like you can say "tempers flare so it's okay to throw a forearm at someone.." He's a ticking time bomb and I'm guessing his laughing and smack talking eventually will create some animosity, he's a jerk. While being a jerk doesn't provide enough to keep him a flying forearm does.

Wish we could have gotten the chance to see what the ACC would have done if Louisville didn't have another game between now and Kentucky.

Let's be honest, @Louisville is far and away Kentucky's best shot at a regular season loss. If you're a college basketball fan, you want Harrell playing.
