Us sucking may not be as fun as winning but it really brings out wonderfully visual comparisons from some of our best artisans with the written word.

Ruscin was way out of line, especially as a member of the media.

I wouldn't expect leniency if I did that.

I generally think this Hog team is Charmin soft and really needs to shut the fuck up about mean fans and Twitter noise…..BUT…..Ruscin is a peacocking shitbag (and always has been) and comes off pretty bad here.

First, Ruscin has been using the “durr Hog fans are crazy” strawman nonsense for years to gin up every argument possible, so it’s certainly ironic to see him try to white knight for our fans when he’s been shitting on and laughing at them for over a decade.

Secondly, he sounds like someone who hasn’t watched baseball at all this year, since he keeps saying that Turner has “sucked this year,” when in fact he’s been arguably our best hitter.

Lastly, the “not a real Hog” bit sounds like something pulled straight from the ass of a double digit IQ Nobville poster. So only multi-year players who are Arkansas natives can speak now?

Someone needs to ask him how many years Van Horn played for the Hogs.

Or his thoughts on how Muss is building the basketball program.

For a change of pace since we have nothing sporty to do I am trying to watch some holiday commercials, to check out tennis shoes, insurance, and what Mexican beer drinkers do in their free time, but they keep cutting in with some car race.

Projected as a 3 seed in the Stillwater regional.

That's embarrassing.  Looks like Josh Duggar when his parents asked him to babysit.

Going from a top 8 overall seed to a Regional 3 seed in less than 4 weeks is an epic collapse.

How could you make comments like these!?  Don’t you know what you’re doing to the fragile psyches of our players with your internet statements?

FWIW, D1Baseball has us as the 2 seed in Stillwater. Not sure who has us a 3 seed.

Per ESPN Arkansas, Derek Ruscin will be taking time away from his afternoon role on ESPN Arkansas stations.  His comments during Friday’s show concerning Michael Turner went too far and did not meet our companies’ standard for quality content….

Good.

Good on the advertisers for speaking up and speaking out.

If you’re making a list Eric Musselman should be near the top or at the top of it. - Me

I figure this will become the norm in the NIL era, for better or worse, as a check and balance system on dipshit local media types. Player says or does something, media guy word vomits, and the NIL sponsors back their player(s), and media guy either backs down and apologizes or "takes time away." These players now have actual businesses with customer bases and marketing presences that have their backs.

I say "for better or worse" because while the blowback against Ruscin is justified (he has a long history of being an asshat) and he went too far in his comments on Turner, I can also envision a scenario where something more benign gets blown out of proportion and NIL sponsors come with pitchforks over something that doesn't quite warrant the outcry.

Just saying I can see a future where someone says somethign benign like "Connor Noland has regressed bigtime" and Crain Team comes for them.

If an anticlimactic tournament selection announcement falls in the woods…

We play Grand Canyon in the first game.  Great.   Our batters will think they have to swing even harder to get past that.

We also have Missouri State in our regional, who beat us in Fayetteville less than a month ago.

And they ALWAYS give us trouble.

Neither was his wife.  She just divorced him and is now on Facebook talking about polyamory and how good her new man's hands feel all over her.

Gee. I don't know why I'm not surprised.
