I did not get to witness this on ESPN, but kudos to Mike Tirico for saying that it is time for college basketball coaches to grow up and start setting a better example for their players. I have great respect for Fred Hoiberg and Ben Jacobson for their demeanor during games, even when calls by the referees do not go their way. Fran McCaffery and other coaches can stand up for their kids, but they can do so in a more mature manner. If your team is good enough, it should be able to overcome the occasions when the calls or breaks are not in your favor.
