From the Nebraska end of DB coach search, I've learned there are "half a dozen" candidates, including Terry Joseph.
McKewon's report seemed to squash all the furor over the hiring of Joseph. Joseph is just a candidate? Well, once again...people jumped the gun. Or so I thought...and tweeted at that moment:
At least someone locally still investigates MT
@swmckewonOWH I've learned there are "half a dozen" candidates, including Terry Joseph.
And you know what... it looks like my snarkiness was wrongly placed. Everything still points to Joseph being offered. He hasn't accepted yet. I wasn't listening to 1620, so I didn't hear Kugler or co-host Mike'l Severe say they had confirmed the offer. And that's all it is at this point. Nobody says that he's hired...just that an offer has been made. And nobody has rebutted that story at this point either.
My bad. My only defense is that the quick response and nature of Twitter leads to quick exchanges. We shouldn't expect total accuracy in coverage of breaking news. (Anybody remember the Darren Rovell/Richard Sandomir Twitter war last month?) That applies outside of Twitter. (Witness storm coverage on our local television stations, for example.)
So yeah... local media guys... looks like you are handling this one right. This time, I was the guy who ran off half-cocked and was dead wrong. I was the guy guilty of that which I criticize others for.
Tonight, hypocrite, thy name is Mike.
