Frustration boiling over? Jerry Stackhouse goes on profanity-filled rant after Vanderbilt's latest loss
Vanderbilt remained winless in the SEC following a 92-71 loss to Arkansas on Saturday and coach Jerry Stackhouse was not in good mood about it.
After the game, Stackhouse went on an extended rant with the media as he all but singled out veteran players.
“We’ve got to clean some things up, got to find some guys who want to play basketball,” he said. “Right now, we got some guys that don’t want to play no damn basketball. We’ve got to figure that out sooner rather than later. I’d rather go with just young guys and Akeem (Odusipe) and those guys, give them a chance. We’ve got guys who’ve been here four or five years, and played 20 minutes and got one offensive rebound and one defensive rebound. We can’t win any games like that. We’ve got to find some guys that want to play.”
Odusipe and Dylan Disu were out because of contact tracing, Stackhouse said, and they hope to return soon.
Stackhouse also added, “At the end of the day,” he said, before pausing, “We’re just doing dumb, dumb stuff. I haven’t had any teams before where I tell them the same thing over and over again, and then they come out and do the same dumb shit.”
Vanderbilt fell to 4-7 overall and returns to action on Wednesday against Florida.
