Star Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, also a Baylor alum, was apparently very upset with the officials after last night’s Sweet 16 loss by the Lady Bears to Louisville. He took to Twitter right after the game, defending Brittney Griner and the rest of the team while calling out both the referees and the Cardinals. If nothing else, he’s got great school pride. Whew…..ok I took my time to calm down and not go off on twitter about the Baylor Girls Basketball game….BUT I CAN’T DO IT!!!!! — Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013 People poke and make fun of B. Griner all the time but C’MON MAN….Them girls were LITERALLY throwing elbows, slaps, weave…. — Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013 Not to mention the lil lady who was mean-mugging B. Griner’s BELLY BUTTON after she made the nice layup…..BACK UP CHILDS PLAY!!! — Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013 No hate on this end people Louisville won & will live to play another game #Props but that doesn’t mean I have to like how it went down — Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013 Oh..& anyone offending B. Griner, Coach Mulkey’s Family or anyone else involved with the team needs to back-back back-back give Em 50 ft — Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013 Yes people Louisville hit the 3 ball all night. But for every 3 they made, they threw 6 elbows, 5 straight lefts, 4 right hooks… — Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013 …..3 roundhouse kicks, 2 jumping knees, & 1 superman punch at B. Griner’s abdominals. Aiming for her face but couldn’t reach — Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013 Oh…and yes I’m mad about women’s basketball cuz I PUT ON for my SCHOOL!!!! And there is a difference in being physical and fighting — Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013 Despite all the man jokes BG is not SHAQ! She is a 6’8 WOMAN! & the REFS! OH MY…NCAA may find a way to fine me if I bring them up — Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013 To those who are mad and lose respect for me because I support my school and support my friends……. — Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013 I would rather have the guts to stand up for them, then to have that respect for sitting down & saying nothing — Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) April 1, 2013
