CHAW- Buzz Williams

By Jude

It's been almost 3 years to the day since the last time this site gave out a Chris Henry Asshole of the Week award. Plenty of deserving candidates have come and gone since then, but we've been hesitant to hand it out since this award's original namesake tragically passed away after falling out of a truck.

But if ever there was a moment that someone needed to be squarely identified as the asshole of all assholes, it is Marquette Coach Buzz Williams, who committed one of the single most classless acts ever seen by an NCAA Basketball Coach following Marquette's 1-point win over the slumping Mountaineers last night.

Behold stupidity:

That's right. He's dancing on the WV logo, to "Take Me Home Country Roads", in front of the student section, nearly inciting a riot in the process.

When asked the general question of "Why in God's name would you do that?" (or as close as Bill Raftery was able to come to that on air, as you could sense he and his partner's unease that Buzz Williams was now in their proximity and therefore in striking distance of various projectiles), he responded, "They're mad at me. I danced on the floor. They got mad. I was two-steppin' to this song. They got mad. That's my fault."

He offered a bit more of a not-really-apology in the post-game press conference, admitting that his dance was unprofessional. “I was just really excited,” he said. “I grew up in the country and ‘Country Roads’ was one of my favorite songs.” Despite his claim that this was one of his favorite songs, Williams also indicated that he didn't know the song was about West Virginia.

(On a separate note, can someone explain to me why WVU plays "Country Roads" after a loss anyway? No one wants to celebrate.)

Sure, it's one thing for a 20-year old college kid to celebrate a win by doing something that he's too stupid to know will necessitate a dozen state troopers to hold back a riot, but this is a coach. A grown-ass man.

And therefore, it is with great pleasure that I bestow the first CHAW Award in 3 years to Buzz Williams for his lack of class, his bevy of stupidity, and the outright assholishness on display following last night's game.

Just of the week? Maybe of the millennium.

Maybe we should give him the dumbass of the month award too as that sPitt can get people killed.

I suggest we let the sadly departed namesake off the hook and change the name of this award to the Buzzkill Award for Student Taunting And Ridiculous Dancing (BASTARD).
