Bill Self isn't happy with junior wing Brannen Greene once again. This time it's because Greene ended Kansas' 77-59 victory over in-state rival Kansas State with a dunk as time was expiring and the shot clock was off.

Here's something you don't hear a college coach say about one of his kids every day:

Matt Galloway of the Topeka Capital Journal elaborated on Self's radio interview, and proceeded to apologize to Kansas State and its fans.

"Brannen Greene, we've put up with him doing some stuff in the past, but that was probably the biggest dick move I've ever had a player do during a game," Self said. "To dunk the ball like that when the other team — even their players are going, 'How disrespectful to the game.'"

Here's the play is Self is so upset about.

Greene was suspended by Self for six games earlier this year that stemmed from an argument over playing time following Kansas' loss to Michigan State in November. That meant Greene couldn't fly with his teammates to Hawaii for the Maui Invitational.

Greene played only six minutes in the game vs. Kansas State, but made all three shots he took from the field to finish with eight points.
