Kansas State guard Angel Rodriguez may hail from Puerto Rico, but what does that have to do with his play on the court? To most us of, Rodriguez is a sophomore guard who has played well this season for the Wildcats and is averaging more than 10 points per game. For ESPN announcer Mitch Holthus, it sounds like there is more to it than that. During the broadcast of Kansas State’s win over Florida on Saturday, Holthus alluded to Rodriguez’s “Puerto Rican temper” after he picked up his third midway through the second half. Regardless of how Holthus meant it, it’s tough to interpret that as anything but a racist remark. You would think that broadcasters and analysts would be even more cautious at the moment, given the heat Rob Parker has been taking for his incredibly dumb remarks about Robert Griffin III last week. Holthus clearly missed the memo. H/T Deadspin
