That is a really strange thing to lie about by Norvell. Why lie about something that is so blatantly false and so easily fact checked? That just does not make sense at all.

Don't sound like Norvell to me but who knows. He is really getting slammed on the inter-webs. Tough way to start a new job.

If he really made the claim and if he really did not talk to each player then he deserves to be slammed for it.

I'm betting this was a newspaper man trick to stir sheet up ... Or just a screw up. We'll see. I can tell you this didn't happen. Way to stupid.

Was his statement accurate...Likely not. Does that make it a lie...Not really. Norvell was always a PR guy and tried to say the right things.

But the bigger issue is him being in control of his team. He likely talked to most of the guys and stated he talked to all.

The team refusing to work out over a technicality like this is a bigger internal issue that is red flag. This would indicate that he doesn't have the buy in he needs to be successful...

You seem triggered.

You do realize the protests aren't against "White" people.

Agree 100%

It's semantics. You can text guys individually, using same wording. Even copy/pasting. Then players speak to each other, they're family.

You have a player that has spoken out. He was a captain under former coach Willie Taggart.

Get control of that locker room and build your culture CMN. Don't sweat the social media. It'll be positive if you win. And your current/past players will defend you.

No sports being played...ESPN needs something to talk about.

It is clearly more likely an axe to grind with a player loyal to a former coach than Norvell just volunteering a lie for no reason.

RE: Norvell in hot water?
Here's how I see it could have happened... Norvell sent a mass text to each individual player, and some of them replied to it. He had discussions back and forth with a few (possibly many) of them via text. He would be correct in saying he reached out to each individual player, and also that he had discussed it with them.

The team captain sounds like he's letting a little power go to his head and making a huge overblown deal about a simple miscommunication. I wouldn't want that kind of toxicity in charge of the team, but Norvell is stuck with it now. If he's lucky, the team captain (who is apparently REALLY in charge of the team) will let him keep his job.

To make it more Tiger-related... Does this turn of events send a message to our current coach when he eventually sees the grass on the other side is "greener"?

I think Norvell did the right thing for financial future.

He was a sliver away from not winning the conference this year...(Tulsa Missing a FG)

8-6 in 2018

10-3 in 2017 but a bunch of squeakers that year as well.

8-5 in 2016

Lets not kid ourselves if he fell off a cliff in 2021 and 2022 people would be starting to get restless with Norvell...Even in Memphis.
