These guys are flat out studs! JWIII and Drew Barham are both from Memphis. These guys grew up in Memphis, so did Williams, I'm sure they know each other very well. what do you think the chances are?

Reading article combined with comments sounds like L Ball mini saga situation. Does not seem like a fit for GU. Few can hire his own coaches, tired of dads trying to push coaches to the side in society because their dang kid is on the team.

Wrong kids for the program. Flat out studs is only one piece of the puzzle. These kids and their dad seem toxic. No harm to take a look, but it will probably be only a glance.

Moving to general basketball. This is another case of hiring parents in an effort to get talent. It's not going to happen at Gonzaga, and it should never happen at a school with the prestige of Memphis:

I don't see one person saying they weren't good enough for us. Everything I read was that some posters didn't think the fit was right due to the situation around them. Completely different but go ahead and try to correct as usual Spy.

In reference to Spy's posts, I often try to keep perspective by remembering these immortal words from Animal House:

Bluto: Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
Otter: Germans?
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.

When it comes to posts where "deep inside information" is implied (or worse yet, stated directly), I fall back on the wisdom of Otter's advice to Flounder:


you can't spend your whole life worrying about your mistakes! You eff'ed up... you trusted us! Hey, make the best of it!

God help Bill Self and Kansas. This is just tasteless. Tubby is a very well liked man in the profession.
