From a comment left on this new article about Mike Anderson's recruiting reach into Memphis, with input from Andy Stoglin and former Hog All-American Todd Day. With mention of UK's John Calipari at the game of highly touted Memphis freshman.
Many of those players filled the rosters of the Razorback teams which made three Final Fours and won a national championship in the 1990s. That success turned many Memphians into Razorback fans, Stoglin said. "
There are a lot of people who still have loyalty to Nolan and to Mike, because he's apart of that same thing as far as recruiting is concerned," he said. "I had three coaches call me when they found out that Mike got the job and they told me to make sure Mike got in touch with them because they have some young players that he needs to see."
