Anger aimed at Dolphin is misplaced

What is going on with the University of Iowa men’s basketball team?

Gary Dolphin was suspended for two games because he said that a player, named by name, dibbled into two people on defense with his head down — God!

First of all, God doesn’t have anything to do with how well coached the Iowa basketball team is. Second, if anyone needs to be suspended, it should be Iowa Coach Fran “I want a technical foul” McCaffery for his not being a better coach and teaching his players not to do that.

Finally, I believe the U.S. Constitution protects free speech, commentators or not.

So, if you are mad at someone, try McCaffery. He’s the one who makes the big bucks and is supposed to be the coach.
