I'm Not Surprised

The crumbling has began. Just two weeks ago we were only looking at losing Joey Dorsey and Andre Allen. I must say I expected this unfortunate turn of events to happen. That's the reason the marquee players come to the University Of Memphis to begin with. To showcase their skills for the NBA scouts. In years past Coach Calipari hasn't built a team atmosphere. It's usually a one or two man show. So a highly sought after player can have the "all about them show" with no restrictions. We have never had a top ranked player to play all four years. Obviously, it won't happen on this team either.

The fallout started with the rookie guard Derrick Rose announcing his early departure. He didn't even get assigned a locker. I think they should put an end to all these hardship cases. There are at least eleven freshman entering in the draft this year. Now junior guard Chris Douglas Roberts has added his name to the list. The two top scorers on this years championship team won't be returning. In addition to two members of the coaching staff. We'll get a chance to see if John Calipari is worth 2.5 million dollars. Instead of expecting to win the championship. Let's just hope to get past the first round.

I read this article. Honestly, I don't know what to say about them leaving. It isn't anything negative. However, it is good to see them moving on and seeing if they are able to play in the NBA. We have a new player to come play for us if he signs the contract. I guess that will help us and keep the school [team] spirit around. GO! TIGERS GO!

I'm not holding it against the players themselves. They're just making it do what it do. The new player signing is dependent on Calipari signing a $2.5 million contract.

Looks like extortion to me.
