    Big 12 Network Commentator's "Back of the Bus" comment...

    Did anyone just hear the commentator say that Percy probably has to ride in the "back of the bus" because he hasn't attempted a three.

    I'm glad I'm not the only person who noticed that... I bet he immediately kicked himself after that one.

    They said both but what is the big deal? If you are suggesting something racial I would try again. Jebus......

    Gibson is black. It doesn't matter what the announcer meant, a mountain will be made of this molehill by someone who needs to score some political points.

    I understand that he obviously didn't mean it in a racial way... it just was... ironic?

    So is basically everyone else on the floor. It would be pretty hard to say he was singling him out due to color.

    He didn't mean it racially at all. My god if someone gets mad over this they need to chill out. It was a joke about Percy not fitting in with this team because literally everyone except him is good at shooting threes.
