Joerger on Kings protest:We’re confident the league will uphold the result They had all the resources and tools at their disposal @ the time
Another great line from Long Gone Daddies "Memphis reborn? Nah, Memphis never dies. Sometimes, you just have to listen harder to hear it."
In Long Gone Daddies, Williams writes about Memphis records, "of uncommon scruff and joy," which also fits the city's NBA team.
I've found one website that has a line up for the Memphis-Wichita State game. Bet Online has Memphis as a 5.5 point underdog.
duuuuuuuuuuude. what a slip hahahahhahahahaa
Reasons to hate (Rockets edition) comin up next on the show...
Nah, the show is in great hands. Right? RIGHT? Listen: 92.9FM. I'm joining him next.
Kings have protested the 111-110 loss to Griz last Saturday. Basis for the protest is that C Lee’s game-winning shot shouldn't have counted.
Ole Miss fans are unduly giddy about Dak's struggles, considering State is still on track for playoffs.
Never could have imagined a regular-season Griz game would be as big as Memphis-Wichita State, but is it now?
