Lol you not even look at the headlines here?
Meh, people are human. No harm, no foul.
How many times have we seen an article on the main page after someone's already started a thread on the forum?

That's because it takes a lot less for someone to post a quick thread or to write something that might or probably will happen. It takes longer to publish an article. People posting and starting threads don't have to worry about fact checking, sourcing, and credibility. A lot of users do a great job on this site of making sure information is accurate. However, there are a lot that don't, and that is how rumors and misinformation gets spread.

I don't doubt nor discount the importance of fact checking, et al but the thread I started about Red Gerard winning gold Saturday didn't require a lot of fact checking and yet I beat the staff's article by nearly 10 hours. By then, it was old news. There isn't anything different about this post than the article on the Main Page--both suggest Johnson's hiring is imminent. Even the subhead on the Main Page says it's not final: "It looks like former assistant Taver Johnson's return to Ohio State is in the works, as his name now appears in the university's directory." The difference is the staff beat this thread by about an hour. If the staff was able to confirm the deal is done and cite a reputable source, now that would be a substantial difference.
Ha! You got me by 2 seconds
This thread isn't going to end well....
Looks like Temple is at the top of the list for finding assistant coaches...
