The blind leading the blind
Prov. Someone who is not capable of dealing with a situation is guiding someone else who is not capable of dealing with it.
Okay, so maybe it’s more like the def leading the blind (no offense to either of those disabled classes).
The delusion runs deep. Craig Robinson, according to Kerry Eggers, said that next years’ Beaver team will be “a top 25 team” if Eric Moreland returns. Bob D, in his increasing delusion (possibly due to his illness??), offered this mind-boggling and intellectually offensive letter:
I want to thank you for your continued support of Oregon State Athletics.
Many of you have recently sent your thoughts to me about the OSU men’s basketball program. No one is more disappointed in our inability to reach our goals than head coach Craig Robinson and myself.
Coach Robinson and I have met multiple times in the past two weeks, and he has presented me with a plan that will move the Oregon State men’s basketball program forward to achieve the goals that this university supports. Our goals in every sport are to win a conference title; to play in NCAA postseason events; to compete with character and integrity; and to help guide our student-athletes to graduate and succeed in life.
I’m looking forward to watching Coach Robinson continue to build our program. He is a man of great character and someone who represents Oregon State University with integrity. I ask for your continued support of Beaver basketball.
I close with a few facts about Coach Robinson’s OSU career:
**He is the fourth-winningest coach in Oregon State history with 94 victories and trails only Hall of Famers Slats Gill, Ralph Miller and Bob Hager.
** Oregon State has been .500 or better four times since 1991 and he has coached his teams to three of those seasons.
** Oregon State has won eight conference games three times since 1993 of which he has had two of those seasons.
** Oregon State had four wins against top-50 and six against top-100 NCAA basketball programs this past season, including wins over two teams that advanced to the Sweet 16.
** Five Oregon State players have received All-Pac-12 recognition.
** Nine Oregon State student-athletes have received Pac-12 All-Academic recognition.
** Eight Oregon State players have been named Pac-12 Player of the Week.
** Three of his players are in the top 15 on Oregon State’s all-time scoring list (Roberto Nelson is fourth, Devon Collier is seventh and Jared Cunningham is 15th).
** He will be the head coach of a Pac-12 All-Star team that will compete in China in August.

These guys both must think fans are def, dumb, and blind. The truth is this: Craig Robinson likes easy money. This is why he was an investment banker. They make money off others’ money and suck on government teat. It’s an easy life. Same situation at OSU…tax payers paying his salary, barely has to work, etc. He just name drops Obama and then says ridiculous shit like “next year we will be top 25!” like an internet troll hoping that if he says something enough it will come true. Bob D, on the other hand, knows he’s guilty of this contract, so he’s spinning mediocre accomplishments as if they’re a big deal. CR’s only accomplishment is fundraising for a practice facility. Period. Thanks for that, Craig, and goodbye.
Bob D should fire CR, but short of that he should be honest and just admit he doesn’t have the money to do it. Instead we get this offensive and ridiculous letter mentioning CR in the same breath as Ralph Miller and Slats Gill. Give me a break. These guys are both ass clowns; incompetent people can hide for a while but not forever. The bell tolls for these two. Bob D put the nail in his coffin on Friday when he hitched his wagon to CR.
