So @DerrickNix25 thinks C Zeller/V Oladipo are overrated? Maybe he was confused? A side effect from weed is short-term memory loss! #IUbb

but I'm pretty sure that guy is not an ESPN employee. He hosts a local weekend radio show. The station he works for is an ESPN affiliate, which means they carry some of ESPN's programming. There are literally hundreds of those affiliates..

I could be wrong, but I believe this tweet was inspired by a Joe Rexrode piece in which Rexrode allows Nix to openly lament about how he believes that Brendan Dawson is "just like Victor Olidapo" and how Adrien Payne can do "everything that Cody Zeller can do". Long story short, Rexrode basically allowed Nix to give the traditional Spartan cry of "no respect". I would say that these comparisons are...well....not the most valid in the world. Still, it would have been far more sage for Schenkel to have stayed off Twitter with that comment, much less direct it right at Nix.

A quick study of Schenkel's feed would indicate an apology is not forthcoming, it would seem.
