    Shirley Barnes Blasts Tirrell and his report on Harrison

    CONTACT: Shirley Barnes - (barnes@iastate.edu)

    Tuesday, April 5, 2011

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Marty Tirrell, Mouth of the Midwest at it again

    Ames, Iowa -Marty Tirrell of Mouth of the Midwest and Calling All Sports, acting apparently on his desire to be in the know, is again making inaccurate and uninformed statements about former Ames High student and current University of North Carolina freshman, Harrison Barnes.

    Early Monday on Calling All Sports.com Tirrell reported that Barnes had made a decision about his collegiate future and would make those plans known on April 5th. Tirrell also made several tweets on the subject:

    Harrison Barnes returning to Chapel Hill for sophomore years..."unfinished business " and cites desire to win a championship

    2:38 PM Mar 29th via Mobile Web from Des Moines, IA
    Harrison Barnes to make it official Tuesday.... Back to Heels-
    about 19 hours ago via Mobile Web from Charlotte, NC


    Harrison Barnes prattle 10a east at callingallsports.com Monday

    Harrison Barnes commits to "work left to be done" at NC Tells family and friends wants and feel Heels can move forward and " win a title "
    about 12 hours ago via Mobile Web from Georgia, US


    In 2009 as Ames High was preparing for their first state tournament appearance in 18 years, Tirrell, who worked for KXNO Radio at the time, reported that then-junior Harrison Barnes would attend Oak Hill Academy, a college preparatory school in Virginia known for its basketball prowess, in the fall of 2009. This major distraction for the school and the team resulted in Barnes' family responding with a press release stating the report had no merit and was solely generated by those reporting it. Again, Terrill's statements have no merit and are solely speculation by the reporter.

    Terrill has not spoken to the Barnes family or to anyone in their inner circle. His actions are irresponsible and amount to harassment. As a result, the family is fielding calls to rectify inaccurate reporting.

    Harrison Barnes and members of his family will not field further questions on the subject of his future until a decision has been made.

    Honestly, if you listened to Marty ranting and raving during the 5:00 hour yesterday, this is hilarious. It honestly just made tonights show appointment radio to hear how he's going to try and squirm out of this one.

    Although, seeing Perrault back on this board only reminds me the blessed peace we've had the last few weeks without him on the radio. Thanks for doing us all a favor Matt.

    Weird, the Barnes' want attention. Lebron James approves of that press release.



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.
