Confidence is good
Writers, bosses say losses
We must kill bad vibe
Geez, it is only the first game, give Harrison time. I do like Zbo coming off bench and shooting more threes.
Truly one of the most underrated players I ever seen. Great kid, Great support system, especially his father John. Jordan has overcome the odds and always been the under dog. I am for certain he will be back and someone will pick up a great player with so much potential. Memphis sat him when he should have been playing more his rookie year, which is unfortunate for them because Jordan is a game time player and always performs under the lights. Oakhill #5,#1, UCLA #3, and finally reached his dreams with the Grizzlies. That's a winner in my books. Kid has always done it the right way. Special Player, and Special person. This ya big homie from South Carolina. You already know J.
Without the turnover advantage we could be a .500 team.

Navy didn't upset Louisville, they beat Houston.
A disappointing loss but this team played with heart the entire game against a ranked team that had upset Louisville. A great improvement over some past teams that expected and accepted defeat. This should be a great, and respectful, rivalry.
damn..sux for randy culpepper...guess he didnt make the cut

Man, I hope they let you out of that nice padded office soon, and let you watch some real basketball.
It's okay Kevin, the regular season is almost back.
I was thinking Michael or LeBron. hmmmm
Oh come on. That's an unfair comparison. More like a UFC fighter using illegal gloves with brass knuckles in them! :)
Memphis, keep winning, we don't need no stinkin' Big 12 conference.
I have met both young men and they are really gracious in taking time to visit while going about their daily routine. GO TIGERS!
Nice haiku, Kevin. Oh, and I liked the Lou Reed references!!
I'm still expecting (hoping?) to see Mario Chalmers ASAP.
Damn Chandler is ineligible, getting paid to beat Dedric. LOL
Would not put anything past the NCAA when it comes to sticking it to Tigers.
wow...what a game...excellent write up...
I'm hoping that Memphis gets at least 7 wins this year.
I had forgotten how great a voice John Paul Stevenson is on the pa. Had some great flashbacks of him in the Pyramid days hearing that voice again. Great to have him back.
Happy to see the effort to get Gasol and Z-Bo involved with perimeter shooting.
We've been fighting against a packed lane for years now. One way to fix that is for one or both of those guys to start taking and making a handful of 3s every game. Good on Fizdale for trying that out.
Even if it's just extending the screen out above the top of the arc, it'll make for more room for guys like Conley and Baldwin in the lane, or for cutters like Tony, while also forcing more help from other defenders, which should create more open looks for a guy like Parsons on the perimeter.
That's getting way ahead, but hopefully Gasol can become a legit 3 point threat, even if it's just enough to force defense to respect him.
