Letting Bygones Be Bygones

You know, just for old times sake.

In one of the strangest memorial news-days ever (probably, I don’t really keep track of things,) Derrick Jasper has just changed his employment on facebook.  You likely remember Derrick as a solid point guard that came in with Jodie Meeks, got injured his sophomore season under Billy Clyde before injuring his knee.  Most people believe (and we have heard from former players that agree,) that Jasper was rushed back by Gillispie, never letting his knee fully heal, which was likely a primary cause in his transfer at the end of the year. The injury plagued him through his playing years at UNLV as well.

But apparently all has been forgiven, as according to Jasper’s facebook, Derrick has taken a job under Gillispie at Texas Tech. At this point we don’t know many details about what the job would entail, but one would assume it wouldn’t include a lot of heavy lifting.  On the other hand, maybe he left his facebook up while hanging out with Ramel, and Smooth pranked him.

Either way, it’s another weird tidbit on a weird day.

    Jasper returns trust with ole ball coach Billie Gee by accepting TT job. WOW ! I did not see that one coming.. Maybe there is a “AA amends list” for Gillispie to check off Jasper’s name…. ?

    I loved Jaspers game when he was with UK. I wish things would have turned out differently for the kid. I think with the right coach and the right instruction he could have been a heck of a point guard with his size and his feel for the game.

    Clyde brought in DJ to give him tips on the best tittie bars on the strip while out recruiting.

    God I hope our players are looking at this OSU crap and realize its not worth it. No one is bigger than the program.

    The hammer is coming to Columbus, OH and it won’t be pretty when the dust settles. Can we get a comment from the general bobby knight on his thoughts?

    By hiring Jasper, Gillespie is trying to ‘right’ a ‘wrong’ that he committed against Jasper.

    Billy G paying Jasper back the only way he can. Nice make-up call.

    What happened to the tOSU/Tressel post?

    Regardless, hope the Suckeyes get hammered harder than hard.

    Maybe Jasper can teach that most 6’5″ PGs get eaten alive by smaller, quicker D1 PGs. For him guarding PGs in space was a mystery.

    Jasper and Meeks… a point guard that won’t shoot, and a shooting guard that won’t pass.

    What a lovely combo Tubby found.

    They worked so well together :/

    Fifteener JB, it seems the 70’s called; special request by the Village People, who manwhoremoaniously requested their GrAY Sweater Vesticles back. They always need to know what happened to their ‘posts’. The article? Being held for review, I reckon.

    Matt Jones, you did not get one piece of information from Jasper. You got second hand info from other players. That is why the “Frosty Tip” one has the better info.

    Evidence Clyde is trying to make amends with those he wronged whilst being a drunk.

    Jasper asking Gillispie for a job is like Cobb asking Red Lobster for a corner table on Homecoming.

    I swear…it’s like Clyde is that lover that you know isn’t good for you but you can’t leave for some strange reason.

    Jasper will be in charge of kicking Clyde’s ass when he gets out of line. Dream job.

    Billy Clyde is trying to atone for his past sins and I commend him for doing so! I hope he lets Derrick work.
