Allow Me To Channel Mike Gundy For A Minute

Doc’s Note: This is the latest in a series of columns about sports at Crichton. These columns will run until the end of the school year.
Once before, while on vacation in north-central Mississippi, I had to defend the honor of this website because a few extremists believed that this website, for lack of better terms, was immoral and that all of us here at TNB were not Christians and were going to hell.
While for the most part that attack at this blog was a blip on the radar screen, the recent attack by someone here at Crichton, who probably has beans for a brain, has rankled my feathers.
When I was given the opportunity to cover Crichton athletics through this website, I wanted to make it where everyone, regardless of what standing they had here at school, had a chance to be covered on this website. It’s an old adage that I learned from an editor at the now-defunct Cincinnati Post: Everyone has a voice, everyone gets a chance to be covered on this blog.
From the first story that I did on fellow Whitehaven graduate Michelle Williams all the way up to the story I did on the “Basketball Sisterhood”, this blog has received positive feedback from 80-90 of the people here at Crichton.
It has given the school positive publicity and a reason to not confuse Crichton with Creighton in Omaha.
The problem with the person who said this, and I say this with all sincerity, is that they never were able to create something like this.
They never had the vision or forethought to get five guys who are passionate sports fans, combine their talents, and do something to reach the Southeastern United States.
Obviously, they spent too much time saying smart-aleck comments about this or that to do something of that caliber.
For us, and I speak for Matt and the rest of the guys here, we shall strive to be a blog for the people, by the people.
And for the detractors who hate, keep on hating.
You’re just giving us more motivation.
