That's a fair argument. I think it's much more likely that the argument is, "Anyone arguing Crean can't coach is an idiot, and you shouldn't listen to them."
It's not so much about enlightening people as it is to persuading people not to listen to idiots.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
