What a moron.

He got heckled on the road by Hog fans? I don't remember them coming to play here.

This guy just continues to put his foot in his mouth with regards to Arkansas.

I take solace in the FACT that Big Blue Nation used this kid and he is too stupid to know it. He sounds brain washed.

He could have achieved what he wanted to here just as well as at Kentucky. Might have even made it further in the tournament. Oh well, on to the next story.

Also thanks to all you stupid idiots who paid money to my crooked brother for his basketball tournaments all the while thinking I was actually considering coming to Arkansas.

Sincerely,

I find it hilarious that he keeps referencing Archie Goodwin as a Cal great.

Goodwin dropped in the draft forecasts after playing at Kentucky and never even played in a NCAA tournament game.

Third team, two trips to the D-League. Great player.

It's INFURIATING how no one in the media will call him out on how he didn't graduate from Lepanto. He left them in the dust to go to Bentonville, one of the nicest schools in the state. Ugh.

Ding ding completely agree. What an underwhelming season. Made little to no difference. I'm glad, he was completely forgettable. Would have sucked if he did something college ball legendary, but that sure didn't happen.

Did he say that? He committed before his senior season of high school. I would imagine he got some heckling during away games.

Instead of blasting a kid for living his own life, maybe we should be more worried about our own peers:
"But beyond that … it got kind of vicious. When we’d play road games, people would call me some pretty awful things. And on social media, Twitter, Instagram, whatever, people would leave me some pretty nasty messages."

That's more embarrassing that losing an in-state recruit to an Elite 8 team. You guys put more effort into a guy that spurned us over guys who actually chose to play for us.

The sooner everyone moves on and forgets about Malik Monk the better. He's done with college basketball. Arkansas fans need to quit giving him the time of day no matter how bitter some of y'all are. Let him thumb his nose all he wants.

As for those who were directly involved and have legit reasons to be mad who helped support his brother, etc...all I can say is what goes around comes around.

It was tough. You hear something enough times, you know, and you can start to wonder if it’s true. It was almost like, man … am I turning my back on my home state? Am I all of the terrible things that they’re calling me? That stuff can get in your head in a bad way.

Job well done, boys. :D

I know a prominent doctor who is a Kentucky fan. He told me he loves the winning but hates how the fans can no longer connect with these players. They are considered Cal's guys more than Kentucky guys.

Marcus probably wrote this crap thinking that it will raise maleeks Q score and help lil bro score a big shoe contract, haha. Everything around the kid seems scripted and insincere.

First time I'd ever seen the Tribune. Really good story about the guy who was hit in the head by the 105 mph baseball.

Our fans need to get off this kid's butt and get over it already. I was as disappointed as anyone when he chose Kentucky. Personally, I despise Kentucky, Cal, and Ashley Judd. But we got to let it go!

Malik spurned the U of A and made a decision that he felt was best for him.

The way in which it all went down makes me more aggravated at Marcus than anyone. He used the U of A, Mike Anderson, the players on the team, and even his own brother for personal gain.

It's difficult to separate the two for some. Though I was disappointed in Malik's decision, I have the most ill feelings toward Marcus.

Did I mention the story about the baseball head injury? It's definitely worth reading.

It isn't Marcus. At least right now. He is not on the NBAPA certified agents list. BUT we all know he will be giving him "guidance and advice".

Why is it INFURIATING to you? It's not to anyone who lives in Lepanto. You won't hear a negative word about him or his decision in Lepanto.

there are a few, but my friend who pastors a church in Lepanto told me he's seen at least half of his congregation has Kentucky apparel that they wear frequently because of the Monk brothers. Most were cheering for Ky over Arkansas during the SEC tourney.

Good for Lepanto. Maybe they can build a shrine to the monks that could only be rivaled by walnut ridge's beatles memorial.

That's ok. But the "you won't hear a negative word in Lepanto" line is garbage. He turned his back on them before he turned his back on the state.

Some serious racist, hate filled stuff on here when you start getting into the IQ of a kid and his family.

As to leaving Lepanto, everyone wants a better life for their family and kids, the best education and in his case to play against the best competition. How many of you live in the same house your whole life, the same community????  I am from Eastern Arkansas myself, I think its a good place to be from but raising my family in NWA compare Crittenden county is a big difference.

People who are angry should be angry that talented kids from Arkansas have to choose between being a Razorback or going elsewhere to get the most of themselves. That's on Jeff Long.
