A college basketball coach was so disgusted by his team’s performance he passionately described the players’ shortcomings and used some dynamic analogies during a post-game rant Tuesday.

It came after a Southern Illinois 73-65 loss to Murray State, giving the team the worst record in the Missouri Valley Conference.

The audio file that captured SIU Coach Barry Hinson was posted on

In it, Hinson called his team a bunch of “mama’s boys” who are “uncoachable” and said it seemed as though snipers were in the gym because the athletes kept falling down.

He also compared coaching his young team to house-training a puppy and essentially said his wife could shoot better. reported Hinson later apologized, but only for calling out one athlete by name and saying he was “absolutely awful.”   The rest Hinson stood by “100 percent.”
