Isaiah Briscoe already has beef with future Louisville Cardinal

Screen Shot 2015-05-11 at 12.27.10 PM

It sure didn’t take Isaiah Briscoe long to pick up a rivalry with Donovan Mitchell, a current Louisville signee.

The beef started when Mitchell, a four-star shooting guard in the class, shared a video on social media of Briscoe stopping an interview to ask, “What’s an adjective?” (Not a good look for Briscoe by the way.)

Briscoe responded with a flurry of Instagram posts (that have since been deleted) directed at Mitchell and his high school teammate, UConn signee Jalen Adams.

First, Briscoe called Adams and Mitchell’s Brewster Academy backcourt “corny.”

He tagged Antonion Blakeney and Dwayne Bacon in the post because they’re on Briscoe’s side of the fight, apparently. I know as much about this as you do.

Briscoe also made fun of Mitchell’s outfit in this photo:

Florida State signee Dwayne Bacon shared a photo with Briscoe and Blakeney at the McDonald’s All-American game and asked Adams and Mitchell, “Where was y’all?”

Answer: They weren’t invited. Strong burn.


Now, allow me to break this down real quick…

First of all, I’m too old for this. The fact that I’m even sharing it makes me feel like I’m commentating a food fight in a high school cafeteria. These are kids being kids without realizing the spotlight they’re under and that they will soon be held to a much higher standard than their peers in college. This won’t fly once they arrive on campus.

However, a very tiny part of me likes that Briscoe has already formed a hatred for a Louisville Cardinal. He looks really petty and immature in how he responded to Mitchell’s first jab, but I do like that they’ve already adopted the rivalry. It’s always good to know the players despise each other as much as the fans.

This should make for a pretty good storyline entering that game next December.

    I’m sorry, if you don’ know what an adjective is by this time of your life; yea, there is no come back from that to defend yourself.

    Unfortunately, my guess is that more than 50% of high school graduates don’t know the definition of an adjective. This is all in good fun though. Trash talking is all part of the game.

      I teach public school, and I’d say about 50% of my first graders know what an adjective is, so hopefully he was kidding.

      UKBradStith: While I agree he should probably know what an adjective is the argument that your 1st graders do is irrelevant. They are just learning it. In they same way a lot of young kids know the planets, state capitals, and where the Inca’s lived. They know it because it’s recent information. They forget it because it isn’t relevant information.

    Your right, you shouldn’t be telling us about this and it’s a shame the kids can go on the internet and post this.

    Hopefully Donovan Mitchell is as good at Geography as he is at English so he can actually identify the European country he will be playing in when Pitino gets finished with him.

    I believe “Corny” is an adjective. It would be interesting to know what the word means now in TrashTalk.
    Seems too archaic a word to have the definition it used to have.

    Crunch bar head. You cornball & you so corny. No way in hell this guy has the grades to be admitted to any college in the world. Good thing he can ball because he doesn’t have brains it seems. Don’t get mad at me he is plastering his stupidity for all to see. I didn’t do it.
