COLUMN: Memphis basketball’s unvaccinated players and Penny Hardaway’s negligence threaten this season.
This isn’t a public health issue (even though it should be). It’s about the Tigers needlessly being at a competitive disadvantage.

Peter Edmiston @peteredmiston
Had a chance to watch Penny Hardaway’s Zoom session itself and I’m just flabbergasted at Penny’s lack of leadership and abdication of responsibility of this issue. Penny said he never even thought about vaccinations this year – how is that possible? Such a ridiculous situation. – 6:01 PM

Geoff Calkins @geoff_calkins
How about this? Just noticed. It was exactly three years ago – to the day – that Penny Hardaway told Rick Barnes to get the F out. What a dismal end to a wonderfully contentious series. – 8:21 PM
