How closely will you pay attention to Clemson basketball in two years?
No Ole Miss player in my memory has transferred away from the school with such a sense of laud and appreciation as Murphy Holloway did when he announced last week that he was moving closer to his daughter back in South Carolina. Usually, the "damn that sucks" chorus is just a little louder than the throng of those who enjoyed watching a guy play and just want the best for him, or else Malcolm White transfers to LSU and the Cup runneth over with anger!!!!!!1!!
But that's not the case here. Murph is the man. He will continue to the man. Even at Clemson. Couple that with pretty similar athletic identities (what-sketball?), and I know which horse I'm picking for the ACC Championship in 2011. In much the same way that I kept open a little place in my heart for West Virginia during the Pat White era, Davidson during the Stephon Curry era, and Oregon during the Joey Harrington era, I think I'll have a little sports crush on Clemson during the Murphy Holloway era.
