What’s going on with Arkansas media today?
I keep seeing references of the media fighting. Can someone give the Cliffs Notes of what is happening please?

Watching those NWA sports radio guys feud on here got me thinking about how many of them got started thanks to Marty Houston and Bill Pharis. They don’t get the credit they deserve in the Arkansas media landscape.

Best I can tell is that it has to do with Josh Bertaccini.

Well he's right. Love Joe but what kind of legacy is zero NCAAt appearances and an injured disappointing year 2 then leaves? None.

I have no idea who this is, but I'm going to guess he's not from the state?

I mean I would like to see the context because it just comes off as shitty and trying to stir the pot in a vacuum

context --- here is the quote by JB that started all of this:

quote:

Muss has to be a politician, but did Isaiah Joe really leave any kind of a "legacy" at Arkansas? Obviously not.

Zero reason to even debate whether or not Joe left a legacy at this moment especially in context to Muss's statement. Muss didn't say Joe was a legend or Razorback HOF but he was giving him credit for being a great Razorback who created a legacy of being a pretty good shooter. Muss didn't say he was legendary or had a legendary career. Joe's legacy is this:

Just like Qualls legacy was being an excellent dunker. Nothing HOF worthy - no real success in terms of championships or deep runs into the tourney but a good player with a small legacy. With that being said.... it was just a shitty hot take. What took it over the top was JB's little lackey arguing with anyone who would dare besmirch the honor of his boss. It mainly involved Tye Richardson and Pinto but somehow John Nabors got dragged into the argument and then a whole mess of Razorback twitter fans got involved.

Somebody brought up JB's professor ratings (had no clue he taught) and there were some petty and personal shots taken by both sides. Overall stupid drama but funny seeing our shitty media fight to see who is on top of the dung pile.

Hopefully the virus has helped ADs realize that the media is not needed at games to do their jobs. Maybe this will result in the removal of the press box and post game in person interviews. No more free tickets. No more comp meals. Just send the media a ZOOM link and a stats page and let them do their job from the office or home.

The melt from wally hall would be worth shutting the media out from going to games.

ADD: Some idiot compared Isaiah Joe to Joe Johnson and stated that "most Razorback fans don't remember Joe Johnson..." and that neither created a legacy. Seriously? every Razorback fan knows who Iso Joe is and we take pride in the fact that he is a Razorback. Hell, Bev spent limited time as a Razorback and we still claim him.

Jo3 left a great legacy here and probably should end up in the razorback HOF eventually he's got records, how could he not end up in there. his records aren't easy ones to break either as you see by the company on the above list.

Sure he spent two years here we didn't make it anywhere but that doesn't change he's a great razorback and there is no reason to start drama and talk shite. Jo3 was super classy too unlike the press unfortunately.

My thoughts only... I can't consider someone who was only there two years as being able to leave a 'legacy'. I guess my definition of the word entails more.
Moncrief? Legacy.
Joe? One great year, otherwise - not so much.

My definition of a legacy is someone has been involved with big moments in history. The triplets, Joe Klein, Lee, Mayberry, Miller, Corliss and Scotty.

These players will always be remembered for being involved in big games, not stats which are meant to be broken.

Joe is a good player but he won't remembered for being involved with great moments in razorback history. Like many good players, they come and go and some are remembered more than others.

He had a chance to stick around and make a true legacy by getting Arkansas back to the sweet sixteen in over 20 years. But that isn't going to happen and I have a feeling he might regret that decision later in life.

Hypothetical. But had Rotnei not transferred and broke Scotty's 3 record...would you think he left any legacy? Here we are less than 10 years since he was here and I don't remember anything about his time here.

That's not a slight to him or Joe. But individual records that aren't backed by any significant moments or wins will be forgotten about.

Also pretty telling that JB would tag Isaiah Joe in a much more fluffy tweet vs. the initial one:

Everybody was celebrating Bo leaving radio but what we were left with is much much worse than he ever was. Bo isn't a great media member but he at least had entertaining moments and has some high quality guests. I think he found his niche working with/for the Razorbacks and operating the Hog Pod podcast.

I only remember Rotnei shooting a lot of threes but I don't remember him being part of anything special. No big seasons, no NCAA tournament appearances. Stats are nice to look at but it means nothing if you don't win.
