Falling Down

A good piece on how Debbie Yow's conspiracy theory outburst is playing outside of Raleigh in the Winston-Salem Journal by Lenox Rawlings. I think he pretty much nails it. Across the college basketball media spectrum from ESPN's Andy Katz, who called the sabotage claim "absurd", to Dick Vitale who characterized Yow's allegations as an excuse for her failure to hire the coach she wanted, to John Feinstein, who claimed she lashed out due to anger and embarrassment because she looked foolish, to the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Barker who was on ESPN's Outside the Lines show yesterday indicating this will hurt her more than Gary Williams this has been a PR disaster for Debbie Yow.

It is a beautiful day.

I saw a video of her comments. I have to conclude that she's not a particularly bright person. First, her outburst was emotional, not thoughtful, abd a dreadful decision. Second, she doesn't speak very well, and frankly sounded ignorant. It's depressing (but perhaps not surprising) when a university official uses poorer grammar and vocabulary than my nine year old grandson. "Whatever!"
