SNL Mocks the Mike Rice Rutgers Basketball Scandal (Video)
The abusive behavior exhibited by former Rutgers coach Mike Rice towards his players, which eventually led to his firing and the resignation of the school’s Athletic Director, was no laughing matter…
…until the people at Saturday Night Live decided to provide their own spin on the entire ordeal.
Less than one week after footage of Rice hitting his players, throwing balls at them and berating them with a flurry of expletives went public, the cast at SNL unveiled their spook of the situation, which features a story about Sheila Kelly, the (not real) abusive head coach of Middle Deleware State.
So how does Sheila’s abusive behavior compare to Rice’s. Well, rather than throwing basketballs at her players, she throws bricks at them. And rather than hurling expletives in their direction, she hurls t-shirts with her t-shirt cannon.

After watching that, playing for Mike Rice seems like a Swedish massage compared to what it would be like to play for Sheila Kelly, if she actually existed.
