A Big Thanks to Mike Robinson

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

I just wanted to write this article to thank Mike Robinson for his incredible work on covering the Daisha Simmons story. Yesterday, the University of Alabama announced that they will support Simmons' decision to transfer to Seton Hall in order to be closer to her family.

Robinson's articles not only provided a great deal of information about the situation and order of events, but his interviews with Jay Bilas, Brittany Jack, and Don Jackson really exposed some of the greater issues in the University of Alabama's women's basketball program and their treatment of Simmons' transfer. Your work helped bring this issue to national attention, and I think you helped Daisha Simmons a great deal with your work. Mike, you not only informed us about the issue, but your articles helped lead to positive change, and to me that is what journalism is all about.
