How many of you old guys remember the bull session

in the dorm rooms? Everyone had an opinion and expressed it whether they had any knowledge on the subject or not. That is what Tigernet has become. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but the lack of knowledge and meanness expressed towards individuals or aspects of the team expressed by people with little or no knowledge or experience has become absurd.
How many posts have "called out" individual play/efforts or calling for firing of individuals by people who have never participated in sports at any level beyond youth level (let alone beyond the high school level), have there been today? If you are not a student with the experience of having participated at the collegiate level your opinion just shows your ignorance of what it takes to participates at the collegiate level. If you are an adult belittling the efforts of these young men (in some cases young women on comments about the women's teams) again I doubt you have participated at a meaningful level.
Am I happy about the results of all the games/plays this season? No, but I doubt any of the players are doing anything but giving their best efforts. The coaches are surely not trying to be incompetent, and I am certain that didn't suddenly forget how to coach after winning two national championships.
I was not an great athlete by any stretch of the imagination, in fact I was an 155 lb. chemistry major. I did letter 2 years in cross country mainly because no one else was willing to make the necessary sacrifices to participate. This was in the early 60s when the year round training levels were not near what they are now, but I will never questionor belittle the devotion and effort of any of today's atheletes.
Have fun flame away, but have the courage to post your qualifications for your opinions so people can make a decent evaluation of them.
