When Jack Swarbrick told the media that he’d meet with Charlie Weis in a week or so when they were both in the Bend, ND Nation took that to mean one thing:Â Swarbrick is lying.Â
“He must be out there contacting other coaches to see if he can get anyone better.”Â Blah blah blah.Â People had ‘good sources’ that were ‘in the know’ about this.Â Right.Â The internets is a great, reliable source full of only factual information!
People love conspiracies, and ND fans are no exception.Â Today, Swarbrick said it unequivocally – there was no ‘mini search’.
Swarbrick said after the 38-3 loss at USC on Saturday night that he needed time to evaluate the program, which led to speculation that he was out testing the waters to see if any high-profile coaches were interested in coming to Notre Dame.
Swarbrick denied that, saying neither he, anyone on his staff nor anyone with the university had talked to any coach or considered any coach other than Weis.
“It absolutely didn’t happen,” he said.
Sometimes people actually just say what’s going on.
“But he could still be lying!” many will say.
Of course they will.
