Stadium and Main: Something about Glen Mason and the horse he rode in on

Something about Glen Mason and the horse he rode in on

This “thing” is a few weeks old, but it just popped into my head for no apparent reason:
“At least one of his Big Ten peers, Minnesota's Glen Mason, says he's never seen Carr so stressed out.”
Now, there’s no direct quote there, but apparently Glen Mason said something to the effect of “I’ve never seen Lloyd so stressed.” For some reason I find this wrong on many levels. It’s just classless. Why is a fellow coach (a Big Ten coach, no less), commenting on the mental/psychological state of Michigan’s Head Coach? Additionally, why would he be stupid enough to make this comment “on the record?” I’m probably making too big of a deal out of this, and similar things might have been said when Joe Pa was really struggling a few years ago – but I can’t recall another coach ever saying “Joe Pa doesn’t look good” or “homeboy is stressed out!” And if they did, shame on them. It’s one thing for Stewart Mandel to talk about coaches on the “hot seat,” but unless your name is Steve Spurrier, if you’re a coach – keep your big mouth shut when it comes to stuff like this. Just give the media a cookie-cutter comment about how he seems fine to you, or do the "no comment / next question" thing if you must.

I find this especially annoying due to the well-publicized “health rumors” surrounding Carr, which got so bad in recent years that he actually denounced them at a press conference prior to last season (if I remember correctly). So why does Mason feel the need to make any sort of comment that could even possibly be construed to add fuel to these rumors? I guess we should expect nothing less from the turd that let his players plant their flag in the middle of Michigan Stadium after their first victory over the Wolverines since 1986.

Screw Glen Mason, “screw Blockbusters, screw Bob Holness, and screw your gold run.”
