Yeah, Sidney plays for Mississippi State and is not the brightest light on the Starkeville campus. He proved it last night while sitting in the stands in Hawaii after his teams game in the Diamond Head Classic. Mind you, Mississippi State won, beating San Diego. Sidney, while not a Diamond Head, probably could be classified as a "Blockhead"
For whatever reason, he appears to get into an argument with teammate Elgin Bailey and before you know it, the fists, they be a flyin'.
Needless to say, Sidney was asked to leave the building...and we suspect his coach, Rick Stanbury will be asking him to leave the team sometime in the near future.
Here is your video, courtesy of the YouTube:
1545 UPDATE: Sidney and Bailey have been suspended indefinitely.
The school said both players were sent home from Hawaii and would miss Saturday's game vs. Hawaii and Wednesday's game vs. St. Mary's in Las Vegas.
"In my 13 years as a head coach, we've never had anything like this happen before," coach Rick Stansbury said in a statement. "I am very disappointed in the actions of Elgin Bailey and Renardo Sidney and in no way does it reflect the overall picture of our program. It is not how we want our men's basketball team to be viewed nationally, and it is certainly not the conduct we expect of teammates in our program, nor will it be tolerated on any level."
