    When I hear someone "took a job" I assume that means actually agreeing to terms and a public announcement(which obviously didn't happen). We have no idea what conversations took place between Tubby and LSU. Not saying Doogie is lying here, but the vague language he chooses to use sure has a lot of holes in it. If it were really a newsworthy story we would have heard about from someone other than Doogie (no offense, sir). It's not like the Notre Dame football thing a few years back (can't remember the guys name...used to be an assistant on the Vikings).

    It's plausible that it was similar to the Monson courtship with Washington. That would explain the sources from Louisiana who, at the time, considered it an 80% chance of happening.

    Maybe Smith accepted the job kind of like how he offered a job to Jimmy Williams.

    Could it be I will tentatively take the job dependant on talking it over with my family first type of thing.

    I don't give anything Doogie says a lot of credibibily, but Doogie has a lot more credibility than gopherWARRIOR. The only reason gW seems to keep posting on this board is to make snarky comments about the Gophers.

    Doogie's next headline: Tubby accepted the VT job (for 3hours).

    You have to remember Doogie has a Thursday bit called Scoops with Doogie on Channel 5 and kstp radio. That means he has to come up with something compelling/interesting/scandalous/insider-ish every single week even if he has no idea if it's true or not. I think they teach that technique the first day of journalism school.

    I believe this to be a very accurate summary of the alleged "scoop".

    Is this the same "source" that told Doogie that Kaler was going to hire "his man" Jim Fiore for AD? Doogie's a joke.

    The University is moving closer to hiring a new athletics director. One person in the know said earlier this week that he believes more than ever that school president Dr. Eric Kaler will hire his guy. So, we can pretend that the 21-person committee and the four person sub-committee are difference-makers, but they're not. Kaler will hire who he is most comfortable with. That very well could be current Stony Brook AD Jim Fiore.
    This beating up Doogie business is getting old. Some rube throws out the fresh meat and the flys and vultures go to town. Cheesehead doesn't even have his own facts straight but he's ready to nab Doogie. His niche is digging up rumors via sources (who are sometimes correct) much like Peter Vescey and Sam Smith nationally and Shooter and Sid locally.

    I have no idea if this story is true, but I do know for a fact that Buzz Williams was offered the LSU job but turned them down (obviously).

    Um, he didn't say a source told him that. He said his source said that Kaler had a person in mind and that the committee wouldn't make the final call, Kaler would. Based on that Doogie offered his opinion that the thought Fiore was the likely candidate in that situation. There is plenty to critique with this LSU rumor and other Doogie reports. The "Fiore source" is not one of them.

    It's called tabloid journalism. It's the nature of media today.

    Is there a difference these days? It seems that ALL journalism has resorted to tabloid journalism. Anyone who watched the Mike Wallace special on "60 Minutes" can (sadly) see how far journalism and reporting has fallen.

    It seems that everyone writer, t.v. reporter, radio personality is forced (or decides) to become "multimedia". A writer has to be on t.v. or radio - a radio guy has to write a blog. They all think they will become irrelevant if they don't constantly blather on twitter.

    I could go on, but will spare you.

    Not a defender of him but no where in his comment did Doogie state this claim as fact. He just pointed out what he heard and was trying to check it out.
