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.
