IMO, if we sign any of the Lawsons, it is because one or more of the current players and/or recruits are leaving, and haven't said so yet.

Truly the only explanation. Really weird fit otherwise.

To hell with this family. No class and they laughed as they walked out of the program after most every decent recruit was signed.

So it is OK for fans to say screw Tubby and quit coming to games but it is not OK for a player to say screw Tubby.

I don’t think it’s cool to f the program. They could have opted out earlier, but they enjoyed screwing Tubby too much. That in itself is fine with me, but left us with a depleted roster. The KJ deal was classless too, but par for the course.

Keelon had an issue with the AD and rightfully so. You're the only coach left while Pastner was gone and was told you'd be on staff by the AD. Then, you get demoted. He never disparaged Tubby or anybody else.

Chandler has done nothing. Johnathon has done nothing. Dedric did nothing. KJ made the mistake on video. People still mad about that?

There is a bit of a list:
KJ and the first video - f tubba
KJ and the 2nd video/photo - double birds, Memphis
KJ saying he had no friends on the team
Momma saying Memphis fans are racists
Chandler (or was it Johnathon?) pulling a gun on JJ in a pickup game
Dedric with the dine & dash, then blaming his girlfriend
Keelon and his thirst for media attention - always giving interviews and saying stuff he shouldn't

BTW, Keelon said on J&J yesterday that he knew stuff on the Memphis program that he shouldn't. Then he went on to say Penny had butt-kissers on staff and he needed someone to hold players accountable - "you know what I'm saying"...This is the perfect example of dude just needs to shut this up in public.

But in the end, I trust Penny's judgement on whether he thinks he can handle the family. He certainly knows them.

Penny>Keelon
If Penny takes these kids (shhh, he's coached Chandler already) then I have no doubt everything will be just fine. Y'all giving Keelon too much credit, maybe with Pastner, but not with Tubby, and for sure not with Penny.

Amen! These folks are coach killers. Some coach will be desperate enough to sign these boys... I just hope it’s not us.

The whole idea of Lawson's again associated with the Memphis program sucks. They polarize the fans & the team will be divided. Their collective loyalties are clear - and they aren't the team.

Agreed 100%

I'm with you fellers.

I ain't too keen on the idea either, but I think this time around Penny holds the hammer. Might be a tad different with a clear message on the front end.

Agreed.

As long as there are radio shows willing to give Keelon a voice to air his grievances, then he’ll always be in a position to bash the coaches and the program. He’s just not worth it.
Dana Altman is as good a coach there is in college ball... yet he’s not good enough, so the traveling Lawson circus is looking for a new town to call home.

Let me ask this question...If Penny was qualified to be the head coach as a high school coach and connection to recruits...How was Lawson not qualified to be the assistant coach as a high school coach with connection to recruits.

i would expect that nobody knows Chandler's strengths and weaknesses as well as Penny, and nobody has had more dealings with Daddy Lawson.

If Penny wants the Lawsons, then i trust him

Uh folks-- Mommy Lawson runs that roost!

Man,,, I love the Lawsons and I PRAY THAT WE GET THEM. They are a great family that loves Memphis more than a lot of the SOBS' that have to hate on everything. By the way why was it so easy for those same SOBS' to forgive that 6"10" quitter that ran off to Virginia or that turncoat that ran of to Tennessee and then trashed Memphis every chance he got but the Lawsons are the scurge? HMMM I wonder what was the difference,,,,,I think I know and so do you. The Lawsons are Memphis and will always be unlike a bunch of the aswholes here. Keelon Lawson is a great father that has raised some great children that also love Memphis and this isn't even counting all of the young people that he has mentored and helped. I
just wish some of you internet warriors would pray that you could have accomplished have of what they have in the community . So effing sad.01-wingedeagle01-wingedeagle

Another tidbit from the interview. Some folks here and on the radio said that the Lawsons would be looking hard at Pastner at Ga Tech. First, when they asked Keelon if Arizona should be looking at Damon or Josh, Keelon said Damon. That's telling. Second, they asked point blank if the boys would be looking at Ga Tech, and Keelon said flat-out, no.

lol

If by Virginia, you mean Nichols, then I don't think anyone has cut him any slack. See the continuing posts about his personal struggles with drugs and girlfriends.

I have no clue who the UTK turncoat is, so that is telling of itself. The only mildly recent transfer is A-Barton, and it was a ho-hum thing because he was buried on the bench. But I'm thinking you're playing the race card, so it must not be Barton you're talking about. In fact, Barton is the opposite of your argument. He was a black kid who transferred to the arch-enemy and there was hardly any uproar about it.

As for the Lawsons, their departure was different from anything we've ever seen. There was coaching staff implications. There were constant radio interviews. And most relevantly, there was the list of items in post #71. Keelon has put the family out there, so he has to be comfortable with the chatter that comes along. Heck, at one time, Keelon dreamed of a reality tv show like the Kardashians.

Hate to disappoint you, but race has nothing to do with this. (And if you were not playing the race card, I apologize. Then you need to be more clear in your point.)

If Momma Lawson thinks that Memphisngans are racist wait till they get ahold of Arkansas fans calling out ****** selfish play now that they are fired up again.
