From Greg Gaston…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Peter Edmiston @ 8:08 am

This entry is from the one and only Greg Gaston, so without further ado, I’ll hand it over to him:

All season long we have talked about this Tigers Basketball Team being the “One”. The one that takes it the next step. The one that reaches the Final 4.  And now that they have, Memphis fans, young and old(especially old), tall and short, black and white, male and female need to sit back and enjoy. Something Head Coach John Calipari has often said. Who indeed knows if we’ll ever pass this way again? (Seals & Crofts sirca 1971 or so).

In any case, let’s not worry this week if D. Rose is headed to the NBA (Although he is), or if Tyreke Evans is coming to play in Memphis (Our Friend Dan Wolken seems to think so), let’s instead take it all in and savor the moment.

I said this season is not a GREAT one if the Tigers don’t get to the Final 4. Now that they have they have earned greatness and everything else is icing on the cake. So Memphis fans let’s hope for the best, although in my opinion, the Tigers’ best thus far has been pretty darn special.



  1. Maybe the talking heads at sports56 should enjoy, it instead of the telling tiger fans how to feel.We(fans) have been enjoying the heck out of the season.Instead of fear mongering take your own advice and enjoy this great run

  2. Mike,
    Stop already with the talking heads crap. I for one am enjoying the heck out of this team. Than again, I have enjoyed covering this program since I arrived 13 years ago.
    I realize you and many others are enjoying the ride, but there are some (and you know it) that never stop to smell the roses. They are often only concerned with what’s down the road.
    So it’s to those fans I say, have fun and take it all in, because you never know when it will happen again.
