Default Kevin O'Neill's Gotta A Few Screws Loose?

I always heard rumours of this guy being pretty hardcore, but after reading this article it certainly reaffirms this.

Then there was the game at Arkansas when O'Neill sent reserve Jason Moore onto the floor. Moore made a handful of mistakes, and Tennessee's lead evaporated. O'Neill screamed at Moore: You better hope you DIE before halftime!

"When you all play a good team," O'Neill was overheard muttering toward the Memphis bench, "you'll get your (bleep) kicked."
