Stay Classy Marshall Henderson

Lately Ole Miss Rebel Marshall Henderson has drawn the ire of most rival fans, and it’s understandable why.

Henderson has irked fans with his taunting, most recently sarcastically doing the “gator chomp” back to Florida fans during the SEC championship game on Sunday. It’s not just the taunting that has got under the skin of SEC fans, Henderson has done it with his words as well.

After Ole Miss won the SEC championship on Sunday Henderson was quoted as saying:

“I guess that’s just a shot at all the other coaches out here, they’re losers. They didn’t win this tournament, we did.”

He’s certainly not going to make very many friends in the SEC with those comments.

Now, this picture of Henderson, in a less then classy manner, has surfaced. The photo furthers the fast-growing “legend” of Henderson.

Not the best way to be photographed if you’re the SEC’s leading scorer. Note the very classy shirt worn by Henderson. It’s not known when the photo was taken, but it perfectly illustrates why most SEC fans are not very fond of Henderson.

There’s no denying that Henderson is one of the most exciting players in the SEC. The junior guard averaged just under 24 points a game during the Rebels SEC tournament run.

Ole Miss made the NCAA tournament as a 12 seed. The Rebels will take on Wisconsin in the first round in the west region.

The antics of Marshall Henderson are sure to be on full display for the entire nation. Being on a national stage shouldn’t deter Henderson, as he hasn’t shown an ability to control himself so far.

It’s sad that a player as talented as Henderson has his on-court abilities overshadowed by his on and off court behavior.

In the end, he has no one to blame but himself.

    “in a less then classy manner”? Don’t you mean “less THAN classy”? Clean up your grammar if you are going to criticize someone. Furthermore, I doubt this picture “surfaced”. It looks like someone took a picture of friends having fun at a bar in Oxford and posted it on Face Book. It’s hardly a scandal. If you didn’t stick your tongue in the face of a few coeds while in college, you probably are a goob.

    Who is “Hating” now? I think more folks in SEC are pulling for him than not. Like he said it is just a freaking game! I am Georgia fan married to Ole Miss Alum and I am very proud of that little school in the west! The rest of us better watch out big things on the rise there! Hotty Toddy/ Go Georgia Bulldawgs!
