07:41 AM ET 01.17 | Entering this Sunday's matchup with rival Oregon, Craig Robinson is not yet toast. Not ready to be fired. Not ready to quit on Oregon State. Not all the way burned out, or beaten down. But anyone who has watched the Beavers basketball program transform a line of hopeful, cheery, bright-eyed men with clipboards into the walking dead knows he's getting there. ... "I've said publicly if you can't get to the NCAA Tournament after a certain period of time you might not be the right guy," Robinson said. "Guys like me only get these kinds of jobs when other guys say no, and it's hard to fix." So yeah, he gets it. Robinson wasn't the first choice. The job was a challenge, or he wouldn't have been a candidate. And if we're being real, being Mr. Obama-in-law sealed this one.

If you are referring to the bucknuts, I don't think you want to do that BB. They've lost three in a row I believe.

So, the blurb is trying to convey that Beavs b'ball is landfill, Michelle's maiden name is Robinson, and her brother is not a very good coach?

I can accept "OSU" referring to the Beavs' university. After all, OkSU is generally accepted for that other school in Oklahoma, and it's The Ohio State University, or tOSU for that grand institution in Columbus.

Guess you could not see the humor in it since they are talking about another relative of Obama.
