Sometimes you are right on stories. Sometimes you are not. I have worked as hard as I can on pinning down the BC basketball coaching story. On Tuesday night, I heard the Eagles were closing in on Jim Christian.
I couldn’t pin it down completely so I waited and put out more calls. On Wednesday morning, I woke up with a confirmation from a source. I went with the story.
I was wrong. I screwed up. BC is close, but close is not done. My bad. The deal with Christian still should get done, but until it is a closed issue, it isn’t over.
I apologize. For all of the critics out there, who call me clueless. Well, obviously this time they are right.
My bad. I will try to do better. I could take an easy way in the world of twitter and blogs and just ignore this. Change it and delete it and make like it didn’t happen. And I do that myself to correct mistakes, but the responsibility for the mistake remains mine.
So the beat and the search continue.
