ESPN: Jordan Crawford to Xavier (18 days late)

  • 07/28/2008 9:44 pm in

There’s a lot of good things about the World Wide Leader. Two of my favorite college basketball writers, Pat Forde and Andy Katz, work there. Most of their programming looks spectacular in HD. And they give Colleen Dominguez and Wendy Nix ample face time. (Can we stop with the Erin Andrews fascination already? Thank you, E.)

But as cutting edge and up-to the minute as the Bristol overlords want you to believe their reporting is, sometimes they take 18-day old news and make it their top story. Case in point today: Jordan Crawford to Xavier.

Perhaps Crawford to Xavier was top story worthy. He was, after all, the last in a line of mass defections from Bloomington. Problem is, it was already reported back on July 10. Somebody fell asleep at the keyboard!

Editor’s Note: Don’t forget to submit your list of the top 10 Indiana players of all-time.

    What? This is horrible, the kid could have been huge at IU next year and kept us competitive. This sucks…..well…My starting five has changed…..

    G. Eric Gordon (Illinois Mr. Basketball…right stuart scott)
    G. Armon Bassett
    F. Brandon McGee
    F. Devin Ebanks
    C. Kyle Taber or Deandre Thomas

  • Wait, Jamarcus Ellis isn't starting?

    The insane things is, this afternoon I saw this on the ticker at the bottom of the screen and thought….did I miss something here? Wasn't this a story two months ago……

    Is this like when you posted an article 25 days after its original posting?

  • Exactly. I was waiting for someone to pick up on that. You can blame PostmanE.

    It was reported in the Chicago Tribune this morning too. It must have to do with “official paperwork” or whatever. But what the hell, aside from games and Baseball Tonight, I hate ESPN, so I'll join the ESPN SUCKS chorus.

    Xavier did not make it official until the other day. NCAA law states that coaches and schools cannot comment on a player until he has officially signed. It's nice to see other school abiding by the NCAA laws though…
