I think their approach is all wrong.
MSR...... personally it upsets me when our beat writers are excited about what the coaches are excited about & upset about what our coaches are upset about.
It upsets me that this Tuggle guy is going to start & he wasn't on the radar of our eyes & ears at camp.
I want to know that these "reporters" have the ability to look at a player & make up his own mind, & say what's on his mind. It upsets me that the guys who get the pats on the back around here are the ones who are "in-step" with what the coaches report to the media...... they're freak'n parrots.
People give McClain a hard time, because he's wrong a lot.... but I respect that because he's using his own mind to formulate his own opinions. I'd like it if he were right more often, don't get me wrong. But I know I can't trust the coaches.
Think about CnD & what he brings to this board. That's what we should expect from the media. Cold hard facts.
