ECU beats UTEP and Tim Floyd's Head Explodes

Tim Floyd/Courtesy:
Really. It did. In the metaphorical sense anyway.

Last night, East Carolina and UTEP squared off in a Conference USA game in Greenville, North Carolina.
ECU got the win, but they weren't the story.

The story was the world class rant that UTEP coach Tim Floyd went on just after the start of the second half. Both Floyd and assistant Phil Johnson got a pair of technicals less than two minutes into the half and were ejected.

However, Floyd didn't go quietly. Or willingly. A police officer had to escort him to the locker room. It didn't help his team either. UTEP is fighting for a potential NCAA tournament bid and has won 20 games thus far, but they lost to a 14-13 ECU team, 83-76.

Floyd didn't apologize for the rant and in fact admitted he, probably deserved the second technical.

But, through the magic of the internets, as a service to our readers, we found the video of Floyd's "Go Crazy" moment and are bringing it to you...

Here's the short version from our friends at WNCT-TV in Greenvile...
