Man oh Man...been waiting for this.Now granted,3 of The Big Easts best basketball schools are leaving....BUT,Memphis finally will get some legitimate conference competition....and,well,the days of Memphis running up wins in an inferior CUSA are OVER! I can just picture Josh scrambling to renegotiate a different pre conference schedule,as to pick up those wins that were generally guaranteed for just showing up at a conference game. I LOVE listening to CJP after a conference victory,having to qualify that ''that was a good team'' we beat tonight....you wont have to do that too much in the future coach,the teams youll be playing have numbers 1 thru 25 attached to them...youll know theyre good BEFORE you take the floor....I could never relate to the satisfaction of going thru an entire conference season undefeated or nearly so...and never have played a ranked team...thats about to change!!!!
