    Nice job! There is no reason for these radio people to be making up rumors about high school kids.

    I think she took it too far as well. She didn't need to come out with a press release saying he wasn't going there. It would have blown over if she hadn't said anything at all.

    Reinventing reality through rumor is our job. Back off KXNO

    Don't know if she needed to, but what do you do when your high school son is the radio rumor of the day?

    Wait, what? Someone fill me in on what's going on.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Exactly. Most radio stations in other markets stay away from talking about high school kids personally. They tend to perpetuate rumors on college and pro players.....

    Mary and Miller are just low-lifes that feel like trying to create distractions.

    The reason I was calling out KXNO is because the press release does. KXNO also didn't return calls to the press about this...

    A couple of days ago Marty and Miller said Harrison Barnes was going to play at prep school Oak Hill his senior year because that's what Duke wants him to do.

    Mom shot it down in the media today. She doesn't want Harrison taking questions about this during the state tournament I'm sure.

    Nothing.

    Are Marty and Miller any worse then the pay sites that call kids at home asking where they are going to school?

    Some of you need to get a life and stop ******** about things.

    I hadn't considered the pay sites at all, to be honest.

    Of course, if I had a life, we wouldn't be having this 'conversation.'

    That's what a mom does. She is trying to help her son and that's the easiest way to do it.

    Marty and Miller just made it that much harder for Harrison to choose Iowa State though......the poor kid has to deal with that crap already. If he stays in Iowa, he'll always have to deal with it. Somewhere else, it won't be as big of a deal......

    Re: Harrison Barnes Mom Press Release

    I think it is good that she spoke out. Hopefully it will slow down the motormouths who really have nothing to say and more than enough time to say it.

    It is also intriguing to me because it points out that players' parents are listening and watching. I wonder what her screen name is on here?


    Will will win!

    Re: Harrison Barnes Mom Press Release

    If she wanted to she probably could have gone farther. If she felt that the rumors affected her son or cast him in a negative light she might have ground for a lawsuit. I don't know if she would win, but it definately would put pressure on them and would keep her son's name out of the media.
