Here's Todd Rosiak's latest piece, which features lots of people saying lots of nice things about each other, but let's cut to the quick:
"Here's the thing: My title has changed. My W-2 has changed. But my heart hasn't changed," [Coach Buzz Williams] said. "This is a business that's full of egos [Rubie sez: Tom Crean], full of media-savvy people [Rubie sez: Tom Crean], full of exposure [Rubie sez: Tom Crean], full of money [Rubie says: Tom Crean], and a lot of time that changes people [Rubie sez, with feeling: TOM CREAN]. I don't want my title, I don't want my income to ever change who I am.
"I understand the evolution of how coaches change and how the media and the power hungriness of it all changes people. But I refuse to let it change me. I know I'll get older and I'll handle it better, I hope, but I don't ever want to change what I believe in my heart to be right.
"I'll be here as long as they'll have me here."
Of course, we heard the same type of thing for nine years from a certain shyster with a bad tan ... who used the other side of his mouth to float his name to every BCS school looking for a head coach.
Maybe the memory of that villainy is too fresh, but I'm finding it hard to react to Coach Buzz's statement with anything other than supreme skepticism.
How about you?
Is it just me?
Yes, it's just you. Learn to trust again, Rubie. I take Coach Buzz at his word. (36 votes)
You're astute as always, Rubie: fool me once, shame on me; fool me twice ... well, you can't get fooled again. (8 votes)
