What Goes Around Comes Around

Picture from LWS

In an earlier post, I asked if there could have been a more fitting end to the season than all of Memphis' flaws manifesting in the final 3 minutes of the title game.

Turns out, there could be... and there is. While Calipari's band of criminals were in San Antonio over the weekend, another band of criminals broke into some Tiger players' apartments.

Living in the Memphis metro area, I can tell you that there is a lot of outrage over this. Concerns like "Who would do this to these young men representing our University?" and "This is like those lowlifes who stole things from Katrina victims!" Of course this sort of outcry was missing when Joey Dorsey twice punched people and ran, or Robert Dozier and Jeremy Hunt punched women, or when Shawn Taggart and Jeff Robinson were arrested for inciting a riot, or when Andre Allen was arrested for soliciting a prostitute.

But hey, with those blue and gray glasses on your face and a cup of Calipari kool-aid in your hand, the world is a very different place. One free of rules and discipline and consequences. I wonder how they'll function in the next few years when Calipari isn't around...
