RE: Michigan sports writer on Bates exit
Emoni Bates is the embodiment of what is wrong with youth sports & AAU basketball.

The kid team hopped on the AAU circuit until his father started a program, Bates Fundamentals, to feature his son. He played 2 years in HS at Lincoln HS & excelled, until his father started a “one season only” HS team at Ypsilanti Prep, an “online HS, to again feature his son. After Emoni reclassified, the online team/school disbanded.

So its no wonder, after getting to Memphis and understandably struggling, his father pulled him home with a feigned back injury & then poor mouthed the coach for his struggles. Perhaps Eastern Michigan would be desperate enough to take on a father/son package deal, but most secure coaches & programs will steer clear of that cancer,; and its unfortunate, because the kid would benefit if the father would let go. This is far more about the father than the kid… it usually is.

Sean Banks vibes.

But Banks could actually play.

Yep Banks was also tough as hell he would eat Bates alive. Bates is fake coddled tough Banks was jail/streets tough.

True. And it's unfortunate for the kid. The kid loses.

Michigan doesn't want Emoni... it's clear now he's in over his head, and it's extremely questionable whether he has the humility/disciple to buckle down and improve.

If Emoni was the primary cancer (which is becoming evident), last year without him could have resulted in more wins/better seeding.

Emoni Bates announced on Instagram Monday night that he has narrowed his list down to six schools, and the University of Michigan is one of them. Eastern Michigan, Arkansas, Seton Hall, DePaul and Louisville round out his top six.

More than likely, JH reached out to PH to discuss the circumstances.....Very telling when a "major" talent is NOT welcomed in his own/home state 05-nono
Let the rivalry begin again

So after the Ole Miss game it was the upper classmen who were sabotaging the team and now it is the super freshman who is sabotaging the program.

Is every player out to get him?

And a player who choose to transfer in and walk on just to be on the team is told to take a hike.

If this was any other previous Tiger coach most of you would be questioning his fitness to be the coach.

Cool story when you leave out the part where he transferred out.
