After losing to the Duke Blue Devils on Monday night in the NCAA Championship, Wisconsin Badgers head coach Bo Ryan was clearly frustrated.

Not only did he blame the officiating for the loss, but he also took a shot at coach Mike Krzyzewski and Jahlil Okafor.

"We don't do rent-a-player."

Coach K, whose squad could lose out on freshmen Okafor and Justice Winslow to the NBA Draft, responded.

"I know as a coach, you're the first guy up there when you lose -- I've lost national championship games, I've been the loser," Krzyzewski said on ESPN Radio's The Herd with Colin Cowherd. "It's never easy. You can take one line out or a couple lines out without context. The line 'rent-a-player' is not a good line because -- use 'one-and-done' - 'rent' could mean you're doing something illegal. There is a better choice of words for that. If you say, you don't do the one-and-done in your program, that's your right. But understand that everybody does it differently. ... There is more than one way to run a business, and just appreciate the expertise of all the people doing it in these ways."

It's clear Ryan is frustrated. He never gets to have the luxury of getting top freshmen talent like Okafor, but I'm damn well sure he'd take it if given the chance.
