Courtney Paris will give back scholarship after Oklahoma loses to Louisville

A few months ago, Courtney Paris guaranteed that the Oklahoma Lady Sooners would win the National Championship, and said that she would give back her scholarship if they lost.

Last night, they lost to Louisville 61-59, and Paris says that she's following through on her promise.

What's the difference between Joe Namath and Courtney Paris? For starters, Namath actually came through. Second, he never put anything on the table. If the Jets had lost that game, he would have lost nothing.

The school says they won't take her money, which is a good thing, but this should be a lesson to everyone. Don't make promises that you can't fulfill by yourself. Basketball is a team game, and it takes everyone working together to win. This was a stupid idea in the first place.
