Being a Brunin alumni and former faculty member myself (I have a degree from their extension program as well as having taught their) I never ever bash a fellow Bruin, though I may rag on a Bruin team in general. For instance when I have said that last year's basketball Bruins had a lousy front line, and I may make fun of an individual player in a loving way, but I don't wash my dirty laundry in public. If it turns out that AA doesn't cut the mustard, rest assured that I will keep my mouth shut about his failings. Note that there is a difference between pointing out a player's weakness and bashing him. I will point out a Bruin or ex Bruin player's weakness but softly and grudgingly.
