Finally, I’m making a post on the topic I believe to be the most important in the Bruin Blogosphere.
It’s not about Karl Dorrell
It’s not about DeWayne Walker
It’s not about this coaching search.
It’s about attitude.
Before I go any further, I want to thank all those who have commented and visited this site. This is my first blog and to be having almost 4,000 hits in a day was something beyond my wildest expectations. I especially want to thank those who have kept the dialogue civil in the face of opinions that are polar opposites.
And that’s really what this is all about
Not embarrassing UCLA.
I went to high school with one of the guys who started TedfordisGod.com, now thebandisoutonthefield.com, and he had some interesting, yet not unexpected comments about bruinsnation.
The Official Symbol of BruinsNation
“Yeah, they get a lot of traffic, but god, they are the most pathetic jackasses to ever grace the pages of sbn.”
I’m paraphrasing, but that’s not far from what he actually said.
He then went on to say how they edited one of his comments for grammar and insulted him simply for being from cal.
God, how EMBARASSING. Way not to show that you’re COMPLETELY INSECURE about being a bruin.
Bruinsnation has referred to Karl Dorrell in countlessly horrid ways. They have demeaned him as a human being and attacked him personally. You can want a man fired without going after him personally. Really, try it. Oh, and they attack the players, too.
And calling DeWayne Walker a shameless self-serving hack. WOW. If you don’t want the guy to be the coach, then say so. Don’t go make up stories and wild conspiracy theories with no credibility. DeWayne Walker is universally respected. By anyone not in a straitjacket.
The Official Clothing Line of BruinsNation
Our message is simple. Stop embarrassing UCLA.
Or you can continue to act like a brat and be the laughingstock of the Bruin/Sports Blogosphere.
But you know what, folks? There can be another voice. This website was started because we think DeWayne Walker is a goldmine. Apparently, both inside and outside this website, and inside and outside of Morgan Center, we’re not alone. But the concept is bigger than DeWayne Walker…it goes like this…
You can be funny. You can be interesting. You can have a sense of humor. You can be passionate. You can have a great blog…All without personally attacking individuals who have shown themselves to be dignified and who have represented this university well.
We aim to be that site. We’re not going away after this coaching search. We’re going to launch a new blog. We’re going to be biting. We’re going to be funny. We’re probably going to cuss and be a bit sophomoric. And we’re going to be a check on the looneys. Man, this is going to be cool.
And you know what? We’re not going to embarrass the great name of UCLA by slinging mud and acting like eight-year-olds. Yeah. I know. What a concept eh?
Stay tuned. It should be friggin’ fantastic.
