Thursday's Tony Talking Points
Live @ Stovers!!!
Posted: Wednesday, May 10th, 2006, 11:01 PM
The whole Lee Humphrey saga is searing through my conscience once again after yesterdays show. How in the world did we let him get away? Here’s a kid who just won a National Title. He lit it up in the Final Four and represented us with terrific class and poise. I love the guy! He’s fantastic. He was asked by someone at C&D Wholesale Tire in Maryville yesterday regarding his recruitment by UT. He said he was recruited by UT as a sophomore and some as a junior but was never really communicated with after that by Buzz’s staff. Ask yourself this: If Pear was at UT a couple of years sooner, would Humphrey be a Vol? In the immortal words of the Mayor of So-No (we love ya Philly), ‘Interesting’.

How great is Charles Barkley. Tuesday night he was going off on the greatness of Dirk N from the Dallas Mavericks. Barkley told a story of playing Dirk during a European hoops tour he was on at the end of his Hall of Fame NBA career. Barkley said he faced Nowitski when a then gangly 18 year older poured in something like 50 points versus his team. Barkley said he went up to Nowitski after the game and told him the following. ‘I’ll give you 50,000 dollars if you’ll play your college ball for Auburn. I’ll give you anything you want in fact if you go to Auburn.’ Upon telling the story, former UNC star Kenny Smith said ‘Hey Charles, isn’t illegal to pay recruits?’ To which Barkley shot back. ‘You ACC guys don’t understand SEC sports. In that conference, we have a saying.’ If you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying.’ I love Sir Charles!!!!

I also love fairness. That’s why today we are going to visit with the attorney for Raymond Henderson who’s claiming that his client was unfairly dismissed from UT. I don’t mind giving anybody their say. Even if it is an attorney for a guy who scared a 10 year old girl out of her wits. Everybody needs representation. And everybody needs to be heard. Should be interesting.

Peace and Good Smoke
