If you glance down our blogroll you will see we have a specific linked carved out for ESPN's Page 2. Hey it's kind of fun. And although Bill Simons kind of jumped the shark (he became a little unbearable after that whole Red Sox thing in 2004) a while ago, every once in a while he still comes up with a classic gem. Like this one from today ridiculing underperformance of certain NBA teams:
All if it is B.S. All of it. Players from well-coached teams never say these things. If those fake quotes look familiar to you, or if that Milwaukee article looks eerily familiar to others that have been written about your own team, then your coach is underperforming and needs to leave.
Of course one of those fake quotes involving the underperforming Bruin football programs has to do with the myth of Dorrell having to work with an "young" team. We have been hearing that BS excuse ever since he got here. And today over at Dump Dorrell they drive a stake through that myth:
4 Seniors (Taylor, Chai, Hickman, Medlock)
14 Juniors (Pitre, Markey, Breazell, Sutherland, Joseph, Tevaga, T Brown, Horton, Keyes, Van, Whittington, Taylor, K Brown, Davis)
4 Sophomores (P Cowan, Paulsen, Hale, Lombard, Perez)
2 Freshman (Lanis, Carter)
Backups with significant time
2 Senior (Willis, McNeil)
6 Juniors (Dravogic, Snead, Harwell, Everett, Williams, Abraham)
6 Sophomores (Olson, Bell, Moya, Ketchum¸ Lockett, Bozworth)
2 Freshman (Verner, Chane Moline)
Returning Next Year
1 Senior ( J Cowan)
A lot of this year's starters were starters last year. Half of the guys playing are Juniors.
Meanwhile over at hoops no one is lowering the expectations for a Howland coached team or expecting to hear any excuses of being too young. Coach Howlands team features 0 seniors. No fakers inside Pauley Pavillion.
Thank God for Ben Howland.
