Jerry Tipton asked Willie about his hair today



This morning we shared a letter to the editor of the Herald-Leader from a fan who isn’t too fond of Willie Cauley-Stein’s unique style. When Willie was made available to the media Thursday afternoon, the Herald-Leader’s Jerry Tipton asked him about his hair and why he decided to go back to its natural look. Because, of course he asked that.

Willie told Tipton, “A new year, Jerry. A new year and a new look. You got to start the new year off right.”

So there ya go. Tipton gets to the bottom of a story once again.

    Anyone watching UCLA-Arizona? Good game, sure, but the borderline argumentative exchanges between Dave Pasch and Bill Walton are keeping me the most entertained.

      It’s strange commentary, but pretty comical really.

    I like how he called him Jerry. I can almost hear the irritation in Willie’s voice.

      I had this same thought only when it sounded out in my head it was in the voice of George Constanza.

    The only thing worse than Tipton reporting on this non-story is you all trying to make it into an even bigger non-story.

      No kidding. The KSR writers have somehow decided that we care about their intramural disputes with other writers. Seriously, guys, we don’t. And constantly making fun of other journalists doesn’t make you look like a good one.

      That’s cause KSR isn’t journalists. They’ve said they’re not, so stop trying to label them as such.

      Are you kidding me? Tipton is the biggest troll writer this site of Thamel. The guy starts salivating like Pavlov’s dog as soon as anything remotely negative happens around the UK sports program. If he covered UL sports instead of UK, Jurich would have him wearing concrete boots on the bottom of the Ohio River. I’m glad to see someone calling him out for what he is. You guys don’t happen to work for the LHL do you?

      KSR chasing clicks? Tipton must draw clicks for KSR.

    WCS came back for a sophmore year to improve his game and no doubt he loves the college life. As long as he don’t dye his hair orange or punk ass red and keeps running the floor, blocking shocks, jumping out to guard 3 point shooters and slamming home lobs I don’t care what color his hair is, keep having fun Willie and if we’re lucky he’s enjoying college so much he comes back for another year.

    Tipton is the reason I refuse to subscribe to the LHL newspaper for home delivery or digitally. I hope they go under and a real news service take their place. And without Tipton on staff.

    Tipton hates his job he should have been a hobbit. And John Clay has the worst case of little man disease I’ve every seen. Both need to go C’mon man!!!!!

    Don’t feel so bad Willie, kids have the right to experiment with their hair. They do it all the time. And personally, didn’t think it looked that bad after it was trimmed. Tell them all to take a flying leap!
