Cup O’ Jones : Senior Edition

e5-and-t-willAs I said yesterday and has been known throughout Cardinal nation all season, Earl Clark will be a part of senior day ceremonies as a junior like Francisco Garcia before him. As most know, I’m a huge fan of E5 and am glad he is going to get the appreciation he deserves in his last game at Freedom Hall Wednesday. Some say it might tarnish the true meaning of “senior” day, but in this day and age when a player with the potential of Earl Clark even stays for 3 years it should be celebrated and not treated as the proverbial elephant in the corner of the room. We all know he’s gone just like we all knew Cisco was gone. He’s projected too high to come back and ruin the chance to set him and his family up for life. It would be selfish for a Card fan to ask for more. Earl’s stock was sky-high after the gigantic tourney he had last year, so I feel lucky he was smart enough to not make the easy decision and come back to develop his game and help the team we all love. Earl’s true place in the hearts of fans is still pending on the outcome of this year’s tourney. If passive, NBA-scout watching Earl shows up his legacy could become tainted. If mean Earl shows up with that look in his eye like he’s on a mission – he could become one of the all-time favorites.
