Southern Illinois fell to Murray State 73-65 on Tuesday night, but the best part of the night came after the game, when Salukis Head Coach Barry Hinson had a postgame press conference to remember.
Hinson starts off saying he would keep it calm, but comments by the second year coach had his face turning red on the first question. The comments included my phone getting hit by a rolled up piece of paper talking about how to train a dog, sexual innuendo, and why his wife would hit more shots than some of his players.
He also references Seal Team Six sniping his players on fast breaks, and says his players must think turnovers are tax credits. It’s simply six minutes of awesome.
The Salukis are 2-8 on the season after the loss to the Racers. SIU also lost to Austin Peay earlier in the seaosn

Wondering how his players are taking the rant? Not particularly well. The tweet has since been deleted, but Davante Drinkard had something to say on Twitter.
UPDATE: Coach Hinson appeared on the Dan Patrick Show Wednesday morning to discuss his postgame comments. Hinson said he regretted calling out his players by name but still stood by his comments about the team. Here is the full audio and yes his wife joined in on the interview.
