Clemens, Pierce both showed a lack of class

I have been watching the college baseball super regionals and to say I was disappointed at the lack of class of Kody Clemens and his coach is an understatement.

I can see some cocky, arrogant kid doing something stupid, but for the coach to condone it is unacceptable. Clemens’ actions against A&M and Tennessee Tech were a disgrace. Texas’ head coach’s comments were just as disgraceful.

It is a shame for programs to show such a lack of class. Good job, coach and Kody, you showed your true colors. Maybe the coach should give Kody a pacifier to go with his bat and glove. Pathetic display of sportsmanship. I will be rooting for anyone but Texas in the College World Series.
