Monday Morning Twitter Report: Tallent vs. Wolken

Cannon Smith

Nothing better than an argument in public and what better way to argue than through Twitter. Kristen Tallent of Fox13 and Dan Wolken (@DanWolken) of the Commercial Appeal took to their twitter accounts this week to have a rather public argument about the story Fox 13 ran a while back about Memphis in talks with the Big East. Plus, Cannon Smith takes it on the chin in the game and from Geoff Calkins. And more…
