Missouri Basketball Coach Drops F-Bomb In Press Conference, Tells Reporters “Don’t Bleep That Out”

Mizzou Basketball

Tell us how you really feel coach.

College basketball is getting into the nitty-gritty part of the season. As crazy as it sounds, March Madness is right around the corner, with conference tournaments now on the horizon.

That means that tensions are high for some teams, whether they are battling for a spot in the postseason, or struggling to put together a successful season.

The Missouri Tigers are one of those teams who are just trying to get to the end of the season. After a successful season last year, where the Tigers went 23-8 in the SEC and got an at-large bid in the NCAA Tournament, Missouri has had a frustrating follow up season.

Mizzou fell to 8-18 after a heartbreaking loss to the Tennessee Volunteers last night, and their head coach Dennis Gates wore his emotions on his sleeve after the game. A media member asked the head coach in the post game press conference how he felt his team was at drawing fouls, and they quickly found out that that question had the power to open up a wound for Coach Gates.

He had this to say in response, and decided to intentionally use profanity in his answer (take a look at how his player sitting beside him reacted when the f-bomb dropped):

“We gotta do a better job drawing fouls. I think we suck at it. We’re f****** terrible. We’re terrible at drawing fouls, and we got to do a better job.”

Love a good f-bomb, especially when it’s used like that.

And the Mizzou head coach didn’t shy away from his curse word usage, telling reporters in the room shortly after he let the expletive fly:

“Make sure you guys don’t bleep that out.”

He might be coaching a sub .500 team, but Dennis Carter is without a doubt the MAN for saying that. Yeah, don’t replace it in the article you write with “freaking” or “eff-ing.” Coach Carter wants you to report his quote exactly how he said it.

That way there’s plenty of proof that he said it when the university gives him a slap on the wrist for using the f-word…
