Matt Jones on Gillispie and Jasper

If there is anyone who knows a little something about belittling and shattering the confidence of people that work for you, it’s CBS’ Matt Jones.  That’s why his take on the reunion of Billy Gillispie and Derrick Jasper at Texas Tech is particularly interesting.  In his column for the new cool kids he’s hanging out with, Matt says he’s perplexed by the move, but has a lot of optimism for how it will work out between the odd couple.  Check it out.  Tell him how handsome and smart he is.  Then come back and do the same for me.

    Jasper said this was all over blown & he transfered due to being home sick.

    Somebody needs to tell Matt Jones to proofread. There are two sentences in that article that have been edited to the point of not making sense.

    Gillespie and Jasper were highly successful once, i’m sure they will be again.

    But for me, the announcement not was perplexing and as surprising any I’ve encountered in college basketball

    Those errors were not there when I wrote the original article. Editing sucks.

    I’m wondering when Gilchrist, Davis, Teague, Wiltjer will be on campus. I would think it would be some time soon, like maybe the next week or two. I’m sure KSR can find out for us.

    I hate to c billy benefit from this, but, probably what has happened is Jaspers playing days are over. And because its Billy’s fault, Clyde owes him a leg up. That’s cool. During Billy’s rehab, he learned u have to make amends. So this is him making amends. But, this is also a well publicized screw up as well. So by doing this, Jasper has to tow the party line of all things are good, blah blah blah. And everything jasper says about it well be all is forgiven. So ultimately, billy ends up getting a free pass for ruining a kids playing days. Clyde wins. And clears his own conscience while getting the kid to defend him for screwing.g him up: basically for giving him an entry level job.

    The thing is Jaun…… They’re not all “One and Done’s”. People break down and doctors practice. He moved on and is getting a job. Get over that Billy G crap.

    I have to question Jasper’s mental and emotional stability. First, he transfers to UNLV so that he can be with his “Las Vegas showgirl girlfriend” and now this. Somewhere, I hear cry out for help.
