UConn Basketball Coach Asks Reporter If He's "Really That Stupid" (VIDEO)

At a post-game press conference blogger Ken Krayeske asked Jim Calhoun, Connecticut's highest paid state employee as head coach of the UConn men's basketball team, whether or not he would consider taking a pay cut to aid the financially troubled state.

This did not go over well. Calhoun proceeded to ask the report if he was stupid then tell him repeatedly to shut up.

Connecticut Governor Jodi Rell has gotten involved saying, "I think if coach Calhoun had the opportunity right now, he would welcome a do-over and not have that embarrassing display."

Calhoun seems unfazed: "I'm getting ready for a Marquette basketball game. Whatever people want to say and whatever they want to do, we have three really tough games coming up, and that's what I'm interested in."
