Andre Allen Suspended

University of Memphis backup point guard Andre Allen has been suspended from the basketball team, just days before the team plays in San Antonio for the Final Four. WREG in Memphis is reporting that Allen failed a random drug test and was suspended by coach John Calipari. Allen has been in trouble before. In 2005, he was arrested for soliciting a prostitute.

If this is true, then what the hell was Allen thinking??? Apparently Allen had some of Houston’s finest “greenery” while he visited this fine city. Either that, or hanging out with Longhorn fans caused him to catch some contact, as those pagans played their favorite game of puff puff pass.

Allen should have been smarter. This is his last year playing (he could have applied for an exemption from the NCAA, but no way he gets it now). He had the chance to play in a Final Four and compete for a national championship. But instead, he is stuck in Memphis, resigned to eating Jack Pirtle’s chicken and watching the game from his Vizio.

On a somewhat related note, The Commercial Appeal’s website has a great article on the 1985 Tiger Final Four team. For those of us who followed Tiger basketball, it is a reminder of how good that team was, and also how troubled some of it’s members have been.  You know, I’m a little sad. I hope you guys don’t mind if I post a pic to cheer me up…

You know, I think the Tigers will be ok now…
