Memphis’ Pastner Doesn’t Want To Play UT

Memphis coach Josh Pastner isn’t interested in scheduling Tennessee.  Or Ole Miss, Mississippi State or Arkansas for that matter.  But his boss sees things differently — at least when it comes to playing the Tigers’ cross-state rival.

“I have no desire to play Tennessee,” Pastner told Knoxville radio station WNML-AM/FM yesterday.  “I don’t think it does us any good.  I’m just being honest with you.  For us, it’s a game that, I don’t know why we play it, but we play it because the athletic director wants me to play it and he’s my boss and what he says goes.”

In the past, Tennessee has threatened to not schedule Memphis in football if the Tigers refused to schedule the Vols in hoops.  The Memphis football program needs the exposure and money that comes from playing UT in football.  And Tennessee needs the recruiting exposure in West Tennessee that playing the Tigers in hoops brings.

“(Athletic director RC Johnson) feels it’s great for the state of Tennessee,” Pastner said.  “A lot of people want it in the state of Tennessee, and so I understand that. … I’m OK with it.  Look, my athletic director, I think he’s the best.  I mean, the absolute best.  If he tells me to do something, I totally believe in chain of command.  He’s the boss.  If he told me to go play Ole Miss, Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi State and anyone else, I would do it, because he’s the boss.”

We get it, Josh, the AD is the boss.  For Mike Anderson and Arkansas — who also want to schedule Memphis — they now know who they need to woo.
