Attrition, injury and youth have led to Memphis spiraling to college basketball’s biggest disappointment. A look at Memphis and Penny’s biggest mistakes in a season that began with Penny talking openly about a national championship. https://t.co/Qaa4bmJ9vB
Good one, nerd. Like I said last week: If anybody has a list of teams that stayed good after losing their leading scorer before Christmas, and their third-leading scorer before February, please send it to me. Otherwise, the points you’re trying to make about Memphis are dumb.
Thrilled for and proud of colleagues Mike Breen and Michael Wilbon as they are honored by the @Hoophall with the Curt Gowdy Award. There aren’t two better pros in the business, nor two better people. Congrats Mike and Michael! @espn @ESPNNBA
By the NCAA’s tortured logic and nonsensical rhetoric, this UNI student is now an employee of UNI. How absurd that a non-athlete student can make $10K for hitting a shot, by a player is disallowed from making a nickel. So ridiculous. https://t.co/3tzJTTxl5q
The NCAA turns its back on players with pro aspirations, blaming its problems on “one and done.” That elitist attitude will hurt basketball and education, which it claims to champion. We should welcome all players to college and incentivize them to stay. https://t.co/jwU2oeAEtU
Remember, there’s just not enough money...oh, and this doesn’t count as “recruiting,” which is only done with athletes because it would create an imbalance if a decision was made factoring in money and not “the right reasons.” Blah, blah, blah. https://t.co/Iefi4bBztA
Huge missed opportunity for Memphis tonight at Cincinnati. 10-point lead with six minutes left, couldn't close it out. Basically no margin for error for the Tigers moving forward. Still have two games against Houston, one against Wichita State, couple tough road games too.
