Checking my e-mail as I often do, I was noted by google alerts that a new story had been written mentioning Terrence Jones. “Okay,” I said to myself, “let’s see what’s up.” That’s when I was treated to the mind-blowing sentence “The Cardinals are one of the best team (sic) in the nation, due largely to the fact that they have only lost Terrence Jones and Preston Knowles.”
Obviously a mistake, assuming Terrence Jones didn’t transfer to Louisville without my knowledge and then leave for the pros. That didn’t happen, did it? (Yes, I know, the author likely meant Terrence Jennings.)
But then the writer credits incoming Wake Forest big man Tony Woods as playing an integral part of their team, when we all well and know Woods hasn’t even decided where he will be going to school yet. Strike two.
Still, all good and well, sometimes we make mistakes and forget who’s playing for whom, no big deal.
The only line that really bugs me, though, is this – “Rick Pitino and the Cardinals are going to be one of the best teams in the nation this season.” There’s no way anyone can seriously believe that.
Shape up, BR.
In all seriousness, I’m the last person that should be making fun of someone for mistakes in an article. I just thought it was a funny screen grab that you guys would like to start your weekend off with. If you want to see who else the author picked as top tournament seeds for the 2012 NCAA tournament, you can do so here. And yes, Kentucky is a one seed, thanks to the return of Terrence Jones himself.
