Kallas: Did Mike Rice Have To Be Fired? Of Course He Did

In the 21st century, you simply can’t put your hands on a kid. Or throw balls at a kid. Or kick a kid. Or use homophobic slurs toward a kid. Rice did all of these things and still kept his job, until now. And that’s the scariest thing of all.
