And maybe it isn't. Maybe it's time for players to take responsibility for their actions and their play. Maybe it's time they quit listening to their handlers/friends/hanger-ons and listen to the coaches. Maybe it's time for him to just play ball and not worry about being the king of wherever he is. Maybe it's time to check their egos & attitudes at the door. Maybe it's time for us to trust the coaches since they know EVERYTHING that is going on and we don't ?

I've been waiting to hear you say that for a while!

Well, if they don't want to be tigers, maybe it's best they leave.

to me its best if gee golly josh leave and not be a Tiger. he has ruined Joe.

The whole notion that Pastner has ruined anyone is pure stupidity. Let's see who is next on the JJ blame list when he is out of Memphis and he can't put it on Josh.

Coach Vacates players & head-cases left for Coach.
Angel
Pierre
Sallie
Spoon

Coach Pastner's players
Jelan Kendrick (staff took a chance that this gifted player would mature and finally get his head straight after h.s....they were wrong)

Oh, and in case you have been under a rock for the past century, there are VERY FEW college kids that don't have some sort of "personal matters" while trying to figure out school & life in general. But, spin it the hate Coach Pastner way...not surprised.

I love how these "fans" are so quick to turn on a kid. Two weeks ago the "good posters" would come down on a poster who might have questioned Joe or anyone and brand them as a sctf or the "we suck" bs threads.

Now, JJ is on the way out and the "good riddance" posts come out.

I'm still trying to figure out why this discussion was deemed smack by a trigger-happy mod. The issues and problems are real and warrant discussion. Maybe I shouldn't be the one to bring it up.
