Official NCAA response

"Nick, I checked with our men’s basketball office. No one from the NCAA asked anyone to take the video down. With regards to Mrs. Marshall, she was escorted from her seat to the back-of-house area so that she could attend Coach Marshall’s press conference. Thank you"

So.. Someone is lying about her being "escorted out". Looks like it was standard operating procedure that someone mistook for something else"

I would estimate that 90-95% of Shocker fans appreciate Lynn and while they may not be quite as loud, they are just as passionate and will follow her example to an extent. There are far too many fans who sit on their hands unless it is an easy time to put it out (usually a tie game at the end of regulation). These fans will be crazy in the first half and when the team needs a lift, not just when it's easy to yell and cheer. All fans should take note.

Do you really think the Wichita State Shocker players are influenced one way or another by how Lynn Marshall cheers?

When you combine her with 9,999 other fans...maybe. Given the crowds at Carver the past couple years, I wouldn't mind a little extra passion anywhere we can get it.

I know that during close games (we had very few of those this year), and games where scores were close, her section stood up much of the time and remained standing (if you watched the Valley Championship game, the entire section stood the entire game behind Lynn Marshall). You can put her and WSU down all you want to, but we are better with Lynn and Gregg Marshall. I might add that a basketball fan (not from Kentucky or WSU) came to Lynn's defense regarding this situation at the NCAA and said that she handled herself with respect when security approached her and other WSU fans about leaving the seating portion of the arena. It sounds like Kentucky fans who couldn't stand having people around them who were passionate about the other team. I have heard that Kentucky fans can get quite self absorbed.

Being a passionate fan is awesome. Being a coaches wife and yelling obscenities, trash talking opposing players and blurting out during post game media press conferences is not. This is not the first time her behavior has been called into question. You don't have to be a "WSU hater" to understand this.

I truly think this is a non-story (although the story of the NCAA forcing them to delete the video adds some intrigue)...HOWEVER

Being passionate is great, but when you are a representative of the team with a high profile position (yes, the head coach's wife is high profile), you are typically expected to act with respect and handle yourself in a certain way, especially at games.

Being emotional, excited and standing/cheering loudly is great. But, if it transitions to yelling obscenities/cursing, etc. then she has crossed the line as a representative for the University given she is the wife of the most well-known person at Wichita State University.

It's kind of ironic, the only real rules violation was committed by the Kentucky fan masquerading as a media guy that VIDEO RECORDED Lynn which is forbidden at NCAA events.

He was asked to remove it because of that rule alone.

Imagine Kentucky fan breaking the rules, then trying to blame someone else.

Telling Malik Monk he's got skinny legs and get into the weight room might be stupid, but it's hardly a rules violation.

No rules violations...just not horribly becoming of a person.

I don't understand the fascination with Lynn Marshall on both sides of this issue? She's a coaches wife. Period. She doesn't draw a paycheck from WSU therefore she's not a representative of the university. If she acted in an embarrassing manner (as many fans do) then that's between her and her husband.

Same. I literally do not get the fascination with her. And the Kentucky fans ripping on her because she's from allegedly backward Wichita? I really don't get that. As Mark Twain said, "When the end of the world comes, I want to be in Kentucky, because everything there happens 20 years later than it happens anywhere else."
