"He is an athletic director I have faith in. He has all the right Bruin values"- G. Block
I was searching for confirmation that Dalis was the AD when Hazzard and Harrick were terminated, to comment on the Pac-12 tourney preview post. In my search, I came across which contained Block and Guerrero's reaction to the SI article.
The quotes above were made at the end of February, 2012. So everything is fine now, right? Or...
Within the space of one week at the end of November, 2012 (9 months after the call for a culture change), Tyler Lamb and Josh Smith both left the team.
I don't agree with Doughnut Dan very often. But he is right. No question there is a need for a culture change, for sure. And what has he done in reaction to the clear evidence that the culture has not changed? Nothing. Even Pat Haden knows that you don't need to be wait until the season is over to make a needed change.
This leads to the question for Block as to what the right Bruin values are which Doughnut Dan has. Toleration of mediocrity? Overspending and underproducing? Fiddling while Rome burns? Those are the values which Doughnut Dan has.
Are those Bruin values? They aren't mine. And they for sure aren't those held by true Bruin fans or alums. So there are only two possibilities that I see. It coud be that Block has allowed himself to be duped by Doughnut Dan into believing that Dan actually does have true Bruin values. Or it could be that Block himself doesn't even know what true Bruin values are, and thinks that Doughnut Dan's reign of error really does represent Bruin values.
Either way, we are screwed as we wait for the toilet to become unclogged.
Culture change. Right Bruin values.
No more words. Time for action.
