I apologize to Wescott Eberts.

Wescott, I'm sorry. I regret going after you in such an aggressive and over the top way. You obviously know by now I don't see eye to eye with some of what you write, but that's irrelevant. The problem came when I made it personal. I'm sorry for ever questioning the depth of your loyalty to Texas. I don't want you gone. Truth is, I'm proud we have you as a writer. You clearly spend lots of time researching the team we love, and I'm grateful. I am ashamed I said things that don't reflect that.

Here's my real question for you: what can be done about the divisiveness permeating Burnt Orange Nation? It's been voiced by many that the readership is fighting more than ever, and emotions are bleeding all over the threads. We've all got to look to the writers to unite us. Maybe you and Peter could collaborate on an honest addressing-the-problem piece, asking everyone to rally the wagons during this difficult time. Maybe if I and others started thinking of each other as Texas fans first, we could have heated debates about Mack Brown, etc, without going for each other's throats.

So again, I owe you an apology for basically calling for your head. It was reactionary. Unfortunately reactionary is common on BON right now, which isn't shocking because of the team's struggles. But if anyone can unite the troops, I'm hoping you and PB can. You are truly some of the most influential Longhorn media personnel in the nation. Can you bring the faithful back together?
