I'm sure fans seen through all the rhetoric and tactics used this week to rally support for John Pelphrey. Rather it be John Pelphrey defending himself for his stupid remarks, or one of his lackeys in the media doing it for him, fans have become all to accustomed to it for their efforts to render much effect.
See, neither John Pelphrey, or the media of this state have much character. They have proven this the last four years. They have shown they will lie and say anything they need to at a particular moment. They lie out of necessity. I would even go as far as to say they derive sheer pleasure out of it.
One must recognize this weeks efforts for what it really is---just another attempt by them to use their endless resources and power to circumvent the truth about the current state of things. The truth is, the Arkansas Razorback basketball program is wholly without direction, or plan. Until a change is made it will remain that way. They will continue to routinely fall short of the mark; never reaching the level of success fans want to see.
In listening to John Pelphrey and his lackeys this week, it struck me that they are of the belief time will heal all their wounds. I like to believe it will not. I hope it is as John Lennon said, "Time wounds all heels". Let's hope so.
The lull in the schedule is over and after tonight the week will be too. I can't wait for tonight's game. I can't wait for the rest of the season to play itself out. It's been a long four years and crunch time is here. Let's hold stubbornly to our desire for a coaching change.
In a nutshell, this week hasn't been that bad. Nothing transpired that a terrible finish to the season won't correct. I fully expect Arkansas to "overachieve" at underachieving the rest of the season, and for John Pelphrey to be relieved of his job at the end of it.
"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."
