RIP Positive Paul

tombstonePositive Paul died today during a 74-66 Memphis Tigers home loss to Tulane. Despite the fact that Tulane is 11-3 and now 2-0 in the American Conference, this was a fatal blow to Paul – seeing as Tulane is still actually Tulane and not another school with a history of actually fielding competitive basketball teams this millennium. As Frank Murtaugh notes in his excellent game story, this was Memphis’ first home loss to the Green Wave since December 1992, shortly before George H.W. Bush left office.

Positive Paul leaves behind 3 siblings:  Negative Nellie, Realistic Ralph and Philosophic Phil.
