It has been a crazy day. I woke up to text messages, Facebook posts, and tweets that all say Chryst is gone. While this is still the likely scenario, there’s a tinge of hope. Let’s go over some facts of what we know:
- Chryst is a candidate for the Wisconsin job and at worst the leader for the job. Most reports indicate the job is his if he accepts if he hasn’t already.
- Wisconsin cannot formally announce a hire until Wednesday due to some legal job posting rule, so no formal announcement can occur until then.
- Chryst met with Chancellor Gallagher and only Gallagher today. Pederson was not a party in this meeting.
- Chryst attended practice today with the team and a meeting was held before. At this meeting he did not tell the team he was leaving.
- Jordan Whitehead said he’s still committed to Pitt. This isn’t relevant to any of the above other than THANK YOU BABY JESUS!!!
Take all of that in. What could it all mean? (more…)
