Some of the agendas and sour grapes in this thread are pathetic.

I would love to have added Stokes to this team, this year. Could you imagine a starting frontcourt of Black and Stokes? If the chemistry even halfway worked out, he probably would've been good for at least one more tourney win.

When Will Barton turns pro after this season, will it be because Joe Jackson told him to?

It's really sad how quickly people turn against our local basketball expert.

He's done nothing more than give you behind the scenes info, bits of recruiting knowledge, his opinion when asked, and general info you would not find anywhere else.

One has to wonder what's behind the current E-wood bashing.

Certainly don't personally mean to be bashing ... I am still looking for a logical explanation of how someone that seemingly has good enough relationships with our staff to get inside information, and purports to be a Tiger supporter, would go on the radio and say such damaging things ? I wouldn't ... even if they were true.

Probably his being wrong. A lot.

Easterwood knows more about local hs basketball than anyone here. He seems to answers questions honestly and I would rather have an honest answer. He has good insight into HS basketball & recruiting from first hand knowledge. He gives opinions on recruiting - so what if things change.

Stokes got into a spot where he wanted to start school a semester early. Memphis had no scholarship and he wasn't allowed to play here in '11-'12 because of his official visit.

I don't get the hate on Stokes, he is just what our team needs. Pure sour grapes around here.

If I was the coach and learned one of our players threw the program under the bus in recruiting, I would dismiss that player immediately with bad intentions.

Knowing about basketball and knowing about what's going on internally with MEMPHIS basketball are two different things. I do not want anyone telling the truth on a radio broadcast if it's damaging to the progam. At best, that's the job of a professional journalist. If there's a bona fide issue, why not try to address it internaly if one's so well connected ? Why air the dirty laundry on the radio and risk hurting recruiting. Makes no sense unless there's another agenda.

I don't see much "bashing" in this thread

It's just a fact to say that KE has been wrong or given bad info repeatedly in recent years.

80's and I have asked a relatively simple question...

Why would a Tiger fan go on the GP show and perpetuate that extremely negative rumor when he had no idea if it were true?

Please answer how that makes sense BandwagonJumper, and then we can go from there

I was asked a question and gave an answer, sugar coated it actually.
