Several took to the X platform following the ejection of Chad Baker-Mazara during Auburn's Round of 64 March Madness matchup against Yale and, quite frankly, embarrassed themselves reacting to the beyond-questionable ejection.

The most embarrassing reaction, by far, was from Field of 68 Daily's Sean Paul -- whose definition of getting busy on March 20 was, unlike the all-time great Jamaican deejay of the same name, to advocate for CBM to be suspended for the team's Round of 32 matchup.

"Yeah, that’s a very dirty play by Chad Baker-Mazara," Paul prefaced before saying, "I don’t think a one-game suspension is out of bounds if Auburn wins. He looked at August Mahoney and elbowed him right in the chest."

Sorry Mr. Paul, but Baker-Mazara will be returning on Sunday should Auburn advance in the tournament.

Reporter Jeff Goodman didn't go nearly as far with his own response but did say that the ejection was the correct call.

"Auburn’s Chad Baker-Mazara just got tossed for throwing an elbow, and it was the correct call," Goodman wrote.

Bruce Pearl responds to Chad Baker-Mazara ejection during Yale-Auburn

Bruce Pearl doesn't condone what CBM did on the floor just four minutes into Auburn's March Madness opening round matchup -- elbowing August Mahoney in the chest on a fastbreak play neither was close to the ball during -- but he did believe the referees went too far calling the play a Flagrant 2.

"Obviously, we just saw the replay and what he did was wrong," Pearl said (h/t AL.com's Ainslie Lee). "I thought it should've been a Flagrant 1, not a 2, especially in a game after an entire season of work is something that's obviously going to disrupt us. He is one of our very best players. It was a retaliation. He had just got hit in the throat the play before and he shouldn't have retaliated."

Baker-Mazara's absence is not one AU can afford over the long haul. Good thing the closest Sean Paul will be to the action will be "Temperature" coming on the Spokane Arena speakers.
