James Crockett…I had forgotten about him. Arkansas and Sutton were playing a big game in Barton Coliseum. James goes up for a dunk, slams the ball down, ball hits the rim and the ball went about 10 feet in the air. Crockett watches as the ball comes down, hits Crockett on the toe and rolls out of bounds.
Eddie just throws up his hands in frustration, turns around and walks back to the bench and sits down.
I remember Sutton on his show talking about how the crowd always yelled for Crockett to get into game (Rocket Crockett!), and shaking his head and wondering why they wanted that because her never did anything when he did get in the game.
I thought at the time that was pretty mean and brutal to the player. He did get jerked out of the games very quickly. But I thought he added some excitement and energy and maybe should have been given a little latitude to play through some mistakes.
