It's times like these when Rick Majerus probably wishes he were still an ESPN analyst.
Majerus, in his first year at Saint Louis University, had a tough start to the year when his Billikens bricked their way into the NCAA record book during a 46-20 loss to George Washington. (For more on that putrid performance, click here.)
Yet Saint Louis, which had struggled in recent years and was enjoying a decent start to its season, was still a team that could make a run at a postseason berth and Majerus was a coach who was relishing his returning to coaching, even if it was with a bad team.
It featured a foul-mouthed, physical Majerus who wasn't afraid of getting naked in front of his team, nor did he lack for results. He came off as a bit of mad genius who was wrapped up in winning, but not afraid of anything, either.
Now he's in trouble with a Roman Catholic Archbishop. Majerus, who works for a Catholic school, said in an interview Saturday that he's pro-choice, which prompted Raymond Burke to ask the school to take "appropriate action" toward the coach.
Yikes. I'm guessing Majerus would be happy for another 20-point outing to take the heat off…
