sounds like he don't like how the southern teams recruit!! What else to expect from a LIL10 guy!! LOL
Desmond Howard, an ESPN analyst, tweeted a congratulations of sorts to the Rebels, but some weren't what to make of the comment.
I don't view that as a slight at all. I like the guy. Think we are taking a lot of livery with his tweet.
Its a shot at the southern schools. But lets face it...We all earned it.
The venom that I have gotten around the country working with all sorts of other conf fans is amazing to me. You would think we blatantly pay players in front of the world and nobody says anything about it with the way they act.
And to be honest OM looks like Barry Bonds right now. Small skiny kid hitting for average and playing good defense...All of a sudden blasting homers every 7 at bats. But who is to say that Hugh didnt do it the right way?
And my biggest issue with Desmond saying that is that it takes any credit due to Hugh away in one fell swoop. And that is not his job or right to do. Maybe he should shut the heck up and actually add smething with some substance to the coverage. Not just spewing his hate for southern football programs. Hey man it isnt our fault that the B1G sucks at life and cant get the top notch talent that they used to. And they cant compete at any level as a whole conf. Maybe one team here or there every couple years...But not on a consistent basis.
So the moral of this story. Desomnd....Act like you know something worth knowing. And drop al the nonsense. Give credit where it is due and dont discredit just because of your bias!
If you cant be honest....whats the point of being anything?
Well said. If they would just think for a moment that about 70% of the top high school players are in the southeast it would be understandable that they would go to SEC schools. If the numbers were in the midwest there would be shift in power, but there is not and will not be a shift in power. So all they can do is say how much cheating is going on down here. More than anything you have to outwork everyone in recruiting. Big Ten coaches are inherently lazy in recruiting compared to SEC coaches who understand the effort it takes.
Have to give credit to Freeze he energized the fan base, got better results on the field and took advantage of a couple of key opportunities to sign key players and he just blew it up with a great class.
I get so damn mad at these media types that act like they are full of nothing but knowledge when in actuality they are just full of poop!
Point in case. The baseball era of the steroids is the perfect example of hypocrisy buy the media. Since so many folks did it they implicate all players that had good seasons or careers strictly due to their own opinion. They have no proof and due to no testing there is no way to prove the players wrong when they deny it. However they continue to call all players from that era cheaters and take away from ALL of them. Last month during the baseball hall of fame issue came up. They hammered piazza and he has never even been implicated at all. But certain media members care not for facts they only care to get their name in the news saying this person or that person is a cheat....
Now flip the page. Media members are a dime a dozen that don't do any real reporting. They make up crap and spew it on the air and or in print or the Internet. But when one of their own is caught not investigating his leads before putting out news they jump to protect him and make it out to be a non issue.
Point being. They can make crap up about people and they are supposed to be free of any questioning when they float crap out in the media and trash people. And my question to all of them is , why the hell should I believe you when you and your counterparts lie and make up things daily about whatever you want to. But yet they sit there so full of themselves and so arrogant acting like they are so right and nobody can or even has the right to question them.
Is all crap. Desmond and his ilk are what is killing sports news REPORTING.... Due to the fact that they don't actually report anything real. They just make it up.
And by the way media... Cam says hi....and WAR DAMN EAGLE! And I am just glad their smear campaign didn't stop him from coming back and getting his degree.
I it wasn't for PM BM and Ron I wouldn't even read the intent for sports news. I would just read the box scores.
You are dead on. They can just throw out innuendo after innuendo and never have to back it up. They just leave a trail of damage.
