New York Times reporter Thayer Evans posted an article entitled Athletic Official Defends Memphis’s Reputation in which he discussed issues associated with U of M’s “non academic image”. Although the article did not reveal anything new, it did contain some interesting quotes by coach Calipari, a U of M administrator and a Tiger player. Shortly after it was posted the article was retitled and revised. The revision did not contain what appeared to be an incriminating remark made by a young Tiger player. This begs the question, “who got to Thayer Evans”? Yes the article was embarrassing but it hardly warranted censorship. You can see how the article was revised at blog called the Salt Box.
