Memphis fans sell out allegiance to Nike, start supporting UConn

There is an interesting story in the student newspaper of the University of Memphis about a Nike photo shoot that required several members of the UM marching band to pose as UConn fans in support of Rudy Gay. The best line: "Vega said he overheard the representatives say they were looking for more "tall white guys" to match the demographics of UConn's band accurately." I'll note briefly that if Nike wants to pick a former UConn star for a March Madness-related campaign, Rudy "lost to George Mason" Gay seems like a slightly odd choice.
