    Ejim Receives Public Reprimand

    #Reprimanded

    The Big 12 Conference announced a public reprimand of Iowa State University men’s basketball student-athlete Melvin Ejim for directing an obscene gesture toward the crowd after fouling out of Wednesday’s game at BYU. His action is in violation of the Big 12 Conference’s Sportsmanship and Ethical Conduct rules.

    “Mr. Ejim violated Conference rules that require game participants to conduct themselves in a dignified manner, and exhibit respect and courtesy towards game officials, other institutions and their employees, students, and fans,” said Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby. “I appreciate that immediately after the contest he accepted responsibility for his behavior and apologized on his own volition. I am also grateful for the expedient and professional management of this matter by Jamie Pollard and Fred Hoiberg.”

    Time to move on. I am sure no one is more embarassed about this than Mel himself.

    Wish he would not have done it, but a learning experience.

    He should be banished to prison for such blatant violation of the Honor Code.

    Somewhere Rhoads and Ejim are laughing about this together. Mike Davis can still go screw himself.

    At least that middle finger did not go through Mikas eyeball. It could have been worse.

    We may want to put out a campus terrorism alert. The profile is German looking guys packing firearms and caffeine free coke.

    "2013, The Year of the Reprimand."


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    Re: Ejim Receives Public Reprimand

    Well, that should satisfy all but the most bloodthirsty BYU fans, although I get the feeling they want equal or greater punishment levied on DeAndre.

    Anything news about DeAndre? Haven't heard a peep since the game.

    Kane's punishment was that between his violent foul and Mika's violent bloody elbow BYU got about 6-8 point swing and ISU lost two starters to BYU's one. Throwing a game to BYU is enough, nobody's fault but their own they couldn't take it.
