Geno Auriemma Can't Help Himself

Every time we think we're out of GenoTripGate, he pulls us back in.  Here's what Geno said last week when it came down that no punishment would be handed out:

"I probably shouldn't have, you know, taken an opportunity to say, 'Hey, if you're going to be in the shake-hands line, you know, have a little more respect for adults.' I probably should have just kept my mouth shut and not said anything. Then, when I left, there was a little toe dancing it seemed like. I don't know what happened, but it was nothing more than that."

Dickish, but an admission that it was all just a misunderstanding and we can all move forward.  But of course, Geno's the kind of person who just can't let things go.  It's clearly been bothering him that the general public isn't aware of the "truth" so he decided to "come clean" on a pregame show over the weekend:

"Yeah, she did," Auriemma said during a taped pregame show last weekend. "But here's the issue -- I was wrong for trying to coach somebody else's player. I was. I was walking through the line and [Michael], I thought, was totally out of line. I made a mistake of saying 'You should have a better attitude when you shake hands with adults.' That's exactly what I said. And then they all lost their minds. And then she tried to trip me.

Ugh.  I bet when Geno apologizes (if he ever does) for something, he's the kind of guy who does the "Well, IF I offended anyone, I'm sorry."  The kind of apology that isn't really an admission of guilt and actually blames you for being offended.

I love how he keeps saying "it's over" and how it's a non-issue yet he's the only person still bringing it up.  What a cockbag.  Hey Geno, if you're so concerned with players acting like adults, I don't know, maybe you should try it first.
