So I'm minding my own business watching The Voice with Mrs. GoAUpher (I will banhammer anyone who questions my decisions in this regard) when my comfortable was interrupted by breaking rumors on Twitter...
Aware of the #Gophers hoops transfer rumors. 1 source said he wouldn't be surprised, but didn't disclose a name. Aware of the name floating.— Darren Wolfson (@DarrenWolfson) May 14, 2013
Well then. Cryptic enough but not totally out of the blue (see the comments section of yesterday's Nugz). But who could it be?
@afurry I know :) ... just want on a 2nd connected non-Gophers authority before I run with a name. Need to sift through a bit more.— Darren Wolfson (@DarrenWolfson) May 14, 2013
Ok, so Doogie wants to be all journalistic on this. That's cool. But seriously though, these commercials between contestants being saved are killing me. Can't you give me a little more?
As first reported by @collegebbnews, word is Joe Coleman & Pitino will chat tomorrow. Nothing on Joe's future is set in stone yet. #gophers— Darren Wolfson (@DarrenWolfson) May 15, 2013
Now we're getting somewhere. But seriously, let's wrap this up Doogie. If this is all a fake out and you tell me that Andre is transferring at the same time America foolishly allows Garrett to get voted off I'm gonna be really pissed.
Update just now on Joe Coleman from someone close to him: "Joe has asked for his release." #gophers— Darren Wolfson (@DarrenWolfson) May 15, 2013
So, it's Joe then. If this all proves true, I for one will be very disappointed that he's leaving. First, because that means he's going to be super awesome somewhere else because why not and second, because replacing his production won't be as easy as some people think.
Mostly, I'm interested in trying to find out if this was a Joe initiated move, a RP initiated move, or a mutual thing. Yes, we probably won't know the answer to this and it doesn't really matter at the end of that day. Still, I'd like to know.
Some jerk out there on Twitter is already asking who we should blame for this if it turns out to be accurate...
Are we gonna count this against Tubby's or Rich's transfer counter?— Matt H. (@MVofDT) May 15, 2013
What a Gopher hating moron this guy is. What kind of fool would bother to engage such idiocy?
Maturi, duh. Thanks a lot Joel! RT @mvofdt: Are we gonna count this against Tubby's or Rich's transfer counter?— Chris H. (@GoAUpher) May 15, 2013
