I.T.S. Hall of Famer
- Apr 17, 2012
Meh. It was a brawl. It happened with Memphis vs. BYU a few years ago during a bowl and they're both still above average programs right now.It's amazing to me how many apologist use this.
I am still waiting to here about the last time a Tulsa athletic team was in a brawl. Just going to go ahead and put down money it wasn't after we lost a game.
It's also funny how many of you act like this was an out of the blue incident, rather than something that had built all year progressively getting worse and actually started 3 seasons ago. The team represents the school not the other way around.
Which makes the fact that our coach never talks about responsibility an issue, even more so when players are appropriately punished and the coach is not. When players are publically reprimanded but our coach does nothing.
The school changed my life, it is one of the few choices in my life I actually got to make. I don't fault Dre for his view or his support, I also was in the press box when he saw what Burns did to this program. That moment he felt then is how some of us feel now. Even then some people had blue and gold glasses on, that's ok too.
I'll be back to support this team when this coach reflects the values (responsibility, integrity) I see in the University, I don't think that will ever happen under Monty. Say what you want to about Haith but this will never be an issue for him even if winning may be.
Our AD is disappointing so far to say the best I can about him.
