Say What? – or – Why We Don’t Trust Bleacher Report

say-what

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.

    Oh yes I just got into an argument with a Card friend just yesterday saying the same thing. Penciling in Louisville into the final four (how can you pencil anyone in the final four?), and that the Cats would not be that good due to inexperience.. how bout winning an NCAA game first before you put your team in the final four!! Living in louisville with these insane folks!

    “The team still has most of their team.”

    Whoever wrote that piece is either 8 years old or from somewhere in Eastern Europe.

    well, the guy that wrote that is the same guy that predicted that Kentucky would only land one top thirty recruit in 2012 (and not any in the top twenty)…but he is only sixteen years old, and a Duke fan…

    Has anyone ever seen the movie “8 Seconds?” Seriously, that’s a great movie. I think Rick Pitino is going to be starring in his own version of the film.

    “when we all well and know Woods hasn’t even decided where he will be going to school yet.” – he’s coming to uk, you and everybody else knows it, it just hasn’t been announced yet

    Please stop reading that site and giving them hits. It’s run by freshmen journalism majors who know squat about the teams they espouse on.
