NO WAY: Mike Rice Is Coaching A 7th Grade Girls Basketball Team And Still Acting Like A Maniac


Video is released of Rutgers men’s basketball coach Mike Rice abusing players. Rice gets fired immediately. Controversy ensues as to who tried to cover up his actions. Rutger’s power players come under tremendous fire, some are asked to leave. The governor weighs in on it. SNL parodies it.

Meanwhile, Mike Rice is coaching a 12-year old girls’ AAU team in New Jersey. In fact, he’s been coaching these girls all season long, according to basketball journalist Brian Geltzeiler.

And he hasn’t learned a damn thing, either. Geltzeiler, who discussed this bizarre twist in an already bizarre story over social media sites, claims that one of his “moles” heard Rice shout at a 12-year old girl, “I can’t even look at you.” He goes on to claim that Rice is going off on refs and kids alike, you know, in the interest of fairness.

Mike Rice is, ahem, coaching children? Why don’t you just go and give Jerry Sandusky a job while you’re at it…

Yes, this is really happening. People in a high school gymnasium in Holmdel, NJ, were sitting around watching their children play basketball, and Mike Rice was screaming at them. Want more proof? Diamond Joe’s Media Rantz found this Facebook thread referring to the AAU game Rice was supposedly participating in/berrating little girls:

    I can’t believe he is coaching children but what is that screenshot all about? It is a completely stupid and worthless Facebook post and does nothing to help your story.

    “Geltzeiler, who discussed this bizarre twist in an already bizarre story
    over social media sites, claims that one of his “moles” heard Rice
    shout at a 12-year old girl, “I can’t even look at you.””

    I think it’s a little bit irresponsible to go with this third-hand, uncorroborated info, and say he “hasn’t learned a damn [sic] thing either.”

    Equating Mike Rice with Sandusky? Poor.

    Mike Rice SHOULD be put on the same level as Jerry Sandusky. Both are child abusers and both belong in prison. And to equate Rice to Sandusky will do nothing more than highlight both abusers crimes so that these actions by these criminals can never happen again.

    In some communities though if Mike Rice was ever in the presence of 12 year old girls as this story states he would have been take out from practice on a stretcher.
