Son of a biscuit... Shaq Goodwin officially to Memphis, and hoops only
By signing in the early period, Shaq Goodwin killed the long rumored desire to pull double duty. By signing a basketball LOI, NCAA rules prohibit you from playing football for at least the first year. As a part player, making an impact on the hard wood is difficult if not impossible. But full time, the top 25 talent was a huge pickup for Memphis and Josh Pastner.
An aside, we are big time fans of the young hustler, and think Pastner will eventually overtake Krzyzewski's win record wherever he sets it at. Losing Goodwin is a huge miss for Fox, but Pastner is gonna beat a lot of great coaches for the next several decades.
