I'm speechless and in mourning...it really did come down to a couple of free-throws!

Like I said before the tournament even started it's Memphis verses Kansas for the National Championship. Look for the Tigers to make another big statement Monday night. This truly is a dream team! GO TIGERS!

A local radio personality (Mike Fleming WREC AM 600) is reporting Andre Allen may be re-instated tonight and fly to San Antonio to play against UCLA. This unverified report from a "trusted source" in San Antonio has stated that Andre Allen's drug test was a false positive related to residual prescription meds taken for a shoulder injury 2 weeks ago and is not a substance abuse issue at all. This is still unconfirmed as of 9:00 PM CDT. If this holds to be true it would be a surprise to me but I would retract my previous post in which I may have rushed to judge.

Mr. Allen has let down his family, his team, and the city that has stood behind him and championed his cause. But most of all Andre has let himself down. Andre was a walk-on given a rare chance to become a man of character and a dominate force in some capacity in basketball. Andre's conduct has stunned the team and the community. I am in total agreement with Calipari's decision to suspend him and not allow him to go to San Antonio with the team. I can only hope and pray that the team will use this negative to fuel the positive as they have done all year and push forward to the national championship. I had made claims earlier in my blogs and community posts that no one would be able to stop the Tigers. I have been reminded that defeat always comes from within. The Tigers are mentally tough. They will need to remain mentally tough this weekend. The loss of Allen from the team may not be a physical factor in This weekend's games but no one can doubt there will some mental factors. I know Calipari and The Tigers can overcome this if they want that trophy bad enough. I guess tomorrow we will all find out just how tough the Tigers really are.

Call me crazy but I am thinking (Memphis 67 UCLA 53). (Kansas 73 North Carolina 72).

If you saw the Tigers systematically rip apart the Spartans, then you understand what I have been saying all this time. Calipari has the Tigers on a short leash...until he wants them to play. When he lets them loose, they are unstoppable. Kudos to Cal for reigning them in in the 2nd half to allow the Spartans to at least have some dignity and respect. Cal will let them loose again Sunday on Texas. I don't think they will be as kind to Texas in the 2nd half Sunday as they were tonight against Michigan State. The Tigers are going to win the National Championship this year and shut up all the naysayers for good. Congratulations Tigers for getting to the Elite Eight!
