That's not my world. My world was a cracked sidewalk." —Al McGuire

Earth to Mark Belling

Heard on Mark Belling's WISN radio show yesterday: (hattip: ChunkyChip.)

"Marquette is going to be terrible this year"
"The program is imploding under Williams, they are recruiting thugs and guys are quitting the team"
"Maybe he'll be able to hang onto his job"
"Buzz has been a wrecking crew for that program"
"Marquette appears to be in shambles"
"Vander Blue could save Buzz's job .."

http://www.belling.com/cc-common/podcast.html - Part 2 of Hour 1 on Oct 21.

Uh, Earth to Belling: Yes, MU will have a down year this next season. Yes, we did have a verbal on a recruit that later admitted to criminality and will never wear a Warrior uniform. Yes, a prized Freshman is out for the season, and we have a few other injuries hampering the start of the year.

But please. Buzz might just snare two top 10 recruiting classes in two years, as he's half way there, and Rivals just released their listing, putting MU at 11th for bringing in Vander Blue.

Suggesting he's close to being fired is "galactically stupid."

Even when he says stuff like this, please, please, please try to keep him out of this blog. He's paid to be inflammatory, uninformed, and reactionary. You're only helping his cause by posting links to his stuff. He's not a sports guy, he's not a reporter. Posting these things is like drawing attention to the ridiculous comments in Rosiak's blog.

I think if we keep getting film clips like this it's ok. What's wrong with calling a buffoon "Galatically Stupid"?

Giving attention to loudmouth, pompous, racist jerks from AM1130 is exactly what they want. They need all the attention they can get in order to keep all their 35-73-year-old white males fired up.

And solid link to the galactically stupid.
