I am a big fan of tigers basketball. I put up with John Calipari last year because the truth is, he brought National players, wins and attention to our team and city. I got lost in all the winning and forgot that Calipari is not from Memphis and showed us that he called the shots. He is crafty and headed and regardless of how I feel about him he is gone. He had us in a system where one and done players was a must. That left us with the weak inside game that we have and thank god Elliot transferred back. I couldn't even imagine if he was not on the team where we would be. Although we lost the game last night, I am okay with it because it shows that we don't have elite level players. But we do have young men who are trying. That is all we can ask from them. I do have a request for Coach Josh and that is Please recruit us a big man inside. Good luck Memphis. I am glad we are not under the cussing swagger of John Calipari anymore. I see why Thaddeus Young's father did not want his son to be coached by John, he might have harmed him as a player and worse mentally.
