"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequeces of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of it's powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the state."

Bruce James is what I called him----a Nutt lover waiting in the tall grass for Bobby Petrino to fail.

This morning on 103.7 the Buzz, a naive and misdirected attempt was made to place before the fans the idea Bobby Petrino isn't the answer for the Arkansas program. For grounds to their claim, they implied Bobby Petrino is an abusive coach that isn't getting it done in recruiting in relation to the rest of the conference. The only alleged pieces of evidence they could present for their outlandish, deceitful statements is the fact Micheal Dyer chose Auburn over Arkansas, and Arkansas doesn't have a big time quarterback in waiting.

By their statements it is obvious they want you to believe Micheal Dyer was more concerned about Bobby Petrino's abusiveness than playing time, and that Arkansas doesn't have a big time quarterback in waiting. As for the latter, I don't know. We will see. But for the former, I know for a fact Micheal Dyer was upset Bobby Petrino wasn't promising him anything going into the recruiting season. All you need to do is listen to what Micheal Dyer said himself about it. When questioned by Randy Rainwater on Drive Time Sports on why he hadn't committed to Arkansas he said, "Coach P needed to show him more love".

As an Arkansas fan, I couldn't be more proud of Bobby Petrino. I'm glad he didn't promise this kid anything. Micheal Dyer might turn out to be a fine running back, but as it pertains to principle, our coach coach has it. Certainly more than the bunch of Nutt lovers on 103.7 the Buzz. He certainly has more than John Pelphrey, whom for the sake of winning a game, played Courtney Fortson the night after being caught shoplifting. It's funny, to them Bobby Petrino is a no recruiting, abusive, job-hopping bum. Where as, John Pelphrey is a great recruiting, disciplinarian angel, that only needs more time to turn it around. There's a reason for this people and one day when the timing is right, I'm going to put it together for you and connect the dots. Stay tuned. I will say this now, it's no accident these people go to such ridiculous lengths to put Bobby Petrino in a bad light and John Pelphrey in a good one.

Everything I claimed is happening. You would be wise not to let it.

Well, the media and administration are once again in step together as it pertains to the future of John Pelphrey. No matter how bad a coach Pelphrey has proven to be, and regardless of how far this program is falling, the media and administration are determined to keep him. There are several constants in this world and one of them is people will always have disagreements, but for the media and the administration this seems not to apply. It should seem a little odd that none of them are of the opinion keeping Pelphrey is a bad idea. You would think at least one of them would be critical about the direction things are going. Sheer odds should predict this, but not here. Fans should be asking why this is, because in the answer lay the roots for the destruction of this program.

I know the promise of a good recruiting class for next year is a good thing, but is such a class justification for turning a blind eye to the glaring deficiencies of John Pelphrey? I say it's not. What they are doing is using these young men in order satisfy their own agenda, which is by the way, going to turn out injurious to these young men and this fan base. It's their agenda that has put this program where it's at today. How long can it be allowed to continue?

What fans need to realize is these kids are from Arkansas and deserve the very best coach that can be found. Those in the media want you to believe that Pelphrey has achieved some monumental thing having these kids commit, and that he should be given more time because of it. I disagree. Pelphrey is a terrible coach being credited for nothing more than good timing. This is perfect for those that have been propping up Pelphrey the last two years. But for the fans, this program and these young men it is a cataclysmic event that will be disastrous going ahead.

The administration and media want this to be a closed deal for Pelphrey regardless of how this year turns out. This is simply unacceptable. As dark as it seems now, be not dismayed. I feel certain this travesty can be staved off. There is still plenty of time for truth to win out. Let us believe that right makes might, and in this let us to the end do our duty as we understand it to be.
