Yesterday, former University of Oklahoma point guard Tommy Mason Griffin — the 789th ranked prospect in the country according to ESPN’s Chad Ford — announced he is turning pro. He announced this ill-advised decision from his Facebook page.
Call me crazy, but after spending five minutes trying to decipher his Facebook posts, I’m thinking Tommy could probably use another year or two in school. Or at least a Sylvan Learning Center. That way he could learn about important things like words and periods and complete sentences.
Anyway, it’s hard to believe that less than one year ago OU was in the Elite 8 and considered one of the top teams in the country. This program has fallen farther than the Sutton family. I wouldn’t be surprised if I read in tomorrow’s Oklahoman that Tiny Gallon ate Jeff Capel and that Tony Crocker got another year of eligibility. Those things would be terrible.
