3:01 p.m. – Good news, Husky fans. I found a 16-ounce PBR in my fridge with expiration date Feb. 21, 2011. Absolutely fantastic.
3:04 p.m. – Oregon sucks.
3:08 p.m. – Yeah, I had it on FSN for the past couple minutes…
3:09 p.m. – You wouldn’t expect a state like Arizona to have a whiteout.
3:10 p.m. – How many Latinos you think are in McKale Center right now? I’ll set the over-under at 3.5.
3:11 p.m. – Jesse Perry’s shooting form is hideous. But he looks like ‘roided out Larry Fitzgerald, so it’s okay.
3:12 p.m. – Kyle Fogg’s long arms get him in trouble on that foul. Three shots coming for Isaiah.
This is a three-day glance at the Twitter account of one Derrick Williams (@bigdthatsme23), power forward for the University of Arizona (men’s) basketball team.
Beginning on Tuesday, January 18th, Williams began Tweeting smack talk towards the University of Washington in snippets of 140 characters or less.
By the evening of Thursday, January 20th, Williams had humbly devoured all of his characters (i.e. eaten his words) after the Huskies defeated the Wildcats by a score of 85-68.
Join us on this journey as we witness the progression of Williams’ epic fail.

Pulling a Floyd: 1) Turning down a beautiful, unexpected gift for no apparent reason; 2) Committing an error in judgment of epic proportions; 3) Failing to appeal to sanity when faced with an otherwise easy decision. Example: Refusing to accept the men’s basketball head coaching job at the University of Arizona.
Call it “Pulling a Floyd.”
Tim Floyd’s decision to spurn the University of Arizona men’s basketball program for his current employer, USC, is absolutely mind-boggling.
It’s like being offered the keys to a brand new Ferrari, when you’re current car is a Hyundai (no offense to Hyundai owners, they make a very practical automobile), and having the lack of sense to simply refuse this beautiful, wonderful, amazing gift that has fallen into your lap.
