Twitter Troubles for Jorts

Josh Harrelson, aka Jorts, aka BigTyme55, aka Big Britain, has been banned from tweeting by John Calipari. Why? Jorts was a little critical of some of Cal's comments after the Blue and White game last night and wanted credit for getting 26 rebounds. This is what he tweeted:

"Either we are the worst offensive rebounding team or he had gotten better"!!! Just amazing to me I can't get a good job or way to go

The first line in Harrelsons tweet to a quote made by Cal about Josh's performance. It didn't take Cal long to respond from his own twitter account:

He won't be tweeting until he's responsible enough to handle success or failure
Uh-oh! It's not all bad though. Cal went on to praise Harrelson a little bit on his work ethic. It just goes to show how this technology can be used for good and evil.

Speaking of twitter, Louisville is having it's own twitter wars with journalist Jeff Goodman. Goodman has been critical of the Cardinal fan reaction to Gorgui Dieng's eligibility. Goodman had this to say:

It's truly sad when Louisville fans are celebrating the eligibility of Gorgui Dieng. It's Gorgui Dieng. The again, Pitino needs bodies.
And this:

Louisville fans: I am Happy Gorgui Dieng; just meant that it's sad what it's come down to that fans are celebrating as if it's a superstar,
Couldn't agree more with you Jeff. On both statements.


  1. Gorgui Dieng doesn't have the option of going to junior college. If he's inelgible, where does he go? Back to Africa? Of course Louisville fans are gonna celebrate. We don't expect him to be a superstar. We are celebrating the opportunity he's being given. He deserves it. We've had a lot go wrong this year in the basketball program. It's nice to have something go right. I don't think we are celebrating enough.

  2. I don't disagree with you. I am a fan of Dieng being eligible. And he would not have gone back to Africa. he would have stayed at UofL and gone to school.
