If at first you don’t succeed, predict again.That’s Memphis Tiger basketball player Will Barton’s mantra.
After wrongly predicting a national championship in his freshman season, Barton is up to his old tricks.
“I’m gonna say it then. We’re going to win it all,” Barton told a raucous Tigers crowd. “Don’t put this in The Commercial Appeal. I don’t want to see it on ESPN or none of that this year. Let’s keep it in the party. Off the record.”
To be fair, the Grizzlies are a likely top-15 preseason team. To be unfair, a national championship for a team comprised of mainly freshman and sophomore remains a long shot.
