NCAA made writer delete video of Gregg Marshall’s wife
The NCAA made a writer delete a video he posted of Gregg Marshall’s wife going crazy during the Kentucky-Wichita State NCAA Tournament game on Sunday, though Marshall’s wife ended up kicked out of the game.
Kentucky Sports Radio’s Drew Franklin, who, yes, as you probably guessed, writes for a Kentucky fan site, shared on Twitter a video of Marshall’s wife Lynn going crazy during the game. The video went viral and reached Lynn, who then tried to get the credentialed Franklin kicked out of the game.
Franklin then said that an NCAA rep told him he couldn’t tweet about Marshall’s wife anymore. Here’s what he wrote in his story on the matter:
“Someone from the NCAA came and got my name and told me I could no longer tweet about her because ‘it made her upset.’ I guess it didn’t make anyone else upset when she told Malik Monk to get in the weight room or told Isaiah Briscoe to buy some bigger shorts or told Calipari to ‘shut the f— up’ or told Roger Ayers he is garbage or any of the other classy things she yelled between F-bombs.”
Franklin got into trouble after the game when the NCAA approached him and told him to delete the video, which he did. He later decided to re-post it. You can see the video here and will notice that a security guard was trying to get her to calm down.
It turns out that Marshall’s wife, not Franklin, really was wrong, and that the NCAA should not have tried to influence Franklin’s behavior.
The AP later reported that security asked Marshall to leave her seat in the lower bowl because she was cursing and loud. A police officer was called to help escort her out of the lower bowl.
