Nothing can be worse than the morning show on the local sports channel here in Knoxville.... Oh. My. Gosh.
I like Mark Howard. Yes, he and jimmy hyamms spoon on air once a week, but he's been a very well respected sports analyst in Nashville for years. Not many people outside of knoxville or members of this or similar sites have any idea what our recruiting class is shaping up to be. He basically just goes through the motions when he reports about football recruiting. He's much more opinionated and informative on topics he has knowledge on. All I heard on the way in to work this morning was the 2013 nfl draft fwiw.

Fact is there is an older generation of sports reporters and media guys who refuse to watch the world that is going on around them. 20 years ago, they could go on a radio show and base an opinion on a source, or their gut. Now, they go on radio and 80 percent of the audience knows they are dead wrong, because they read the opposite on a message board from a guy that is credible and usually correct. I live in a major city, and my local sports guy tries to report "rumors" and they are usually five days old or just wrong. The world is changing, and some guys, especially in sports media refuse to believe it.
if your in the Nashville listening area, you can always flip the dial right? maybe check out 102.5, i usually go there when MH gets a little crazy or trys to impose his northeastern will, or maybe even listen to a little country music !
Best way I have found to deal with the WUZ problem is I downloaded the TSR app and listen to Ainge on my way to work always good stuff
Howard is ignorant on the topic but tries to be an expert on all topics is his problem. He also has an agenda for Vandy and against UT bc of the material we have given him the last 4+ years. If we were winning then he just like many in the Kville media would be spinning a different tune the last few years.
