Fortunately for me (with some exceptions), I can separate the man/woman from the actor/actress.

Never understood what this means. They were better on Saturday? B/c as down as the Tigers are, I still don't think ECU is a better team.

We bricked a million FTs and didn't guard the 3. It's as simple as that. ECU played hard, but we made them look like Golden State out there draining threes all day.

Geez, I am giving them a compliment for winning, and you want to parse it?

ECU was the better team during that game. It never felt like Memphis was going to win that game. The fact that we played crappy D, as you pointed out, is a big factor.

HOWEVER, they took advantage of it, and outplayed us. So congrats to them. Let it go.

Just didn't know what you meant. I'm allowed to evaluate the teams and the game as I saw it. BTW, I said the Pirates played hard.

RE: Congratulations Pirates
So ECU has won 3 of the last 5 against Memphis, right?

Losing to ECU is becoming the norm, not an anomaly.

Memphis Tiger basketball can’t go on like this.

It’s not like this is the first time ECU has ever beaten Memphis. Hell, we won IN Memphis a couple years ago.

It’s been a long time since Calipari...

We’ve had 2 shtt coaches since him. Worst Ken Pom loss ever. Tubby sucks and needs to go

What are the Tigers going to do? Will Tubby Smith get another year?
I’m not going to cheapen the Pirates’ effort today by complaining about a potential national HoF coach on our bench. That 1) would be disresptful of the Pirate effort, game plan, etc 2) it would make me look dumb to complain about having a National Champion coach directing my program.

The Pirates played well today; better than us. Congratulations and no excuses from this lifelong Tiger fan!!

I don't think I could add anything to this so ditto
