Jim Calhoun's 7 Memorable Media Moments

Jim Calhoun is a polarizing figure in the college basketball landscape. 

Some find his in-your-face approach offensive and unnecessary. They say his language is too foul, he is too mean and he yells at his players too much. 

Others admire the fact that he expects the most out of his players and speaks his mind to the media.

Unlike Coach K, Calhoun is not interested in playing the media politics game with carefully crafted statements that paint him and his program in the best possible light. Calhoun doesn't give cliches. If you ask him a dumb question, he will give you a fitting answer.   

In over a quarter century at UConn, Calhoun has provided countless memorable media moments and exchanges, many of which are unfit for print. If he had his way, I'm pretty sure Calhoun wouldn't have to waste his time listening to reporters ask obvious questions about the game everyone just watched, or -foreshadow alert- his salary.

If you are a Calhoun hater, be warned that the following countdown will only infuriate you more.

If you are a Calhoun fan, then you'll probably get a few laughs.
