QUOTES OF THE DAY

Men's basketball coach Kevin Stallings on Brad Tinsley's performance:

"Brad's performance was maybe as good as we've ever had here. I gave him a game ball and that was the first time in 18 years I've given someone a game ball."

Guard Brad Tinsley on his triple-double:

"Like I told my teammates in the locker room, none of this is possible without them or the coaching staff. A triple-double is by no means an individual thing and I couldn't have done it with both these guys (Jeffery Taylor and Festus Ezeli) beside me and the coaching staff calling the right plays."

Vice Chancellor of Athletics David Williams on the football coaching situation:

"I'm not necessarily saying expect anything. But I would say you want to look to sometime after we play Wake Forest (for a decision). You want to be fair. But I'm committed to making this program competitive. And we'll do what we need to do to make that happen."


RANDOM VIDEO OF THE DAY

Let's flash back to 1989 when Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen earned triple-doubles in the same game against the Clippers. Just sick (even if it was against the Clippers).




SONG OF THE DAY

The magic in Memorial continued last night, so let's go with a classic by The Cars.
