Is there a journalist in the house?

Terry Hutchens, in his most recent blog entry:
I would still like to get to the bottom of how much Rick Greenspan really wanted Kelvin Sampson as his men's basketball coach, or whether it was shoved down his throat by Adam Herbert and board of trustee member Jeff Cohen? I think those questions need to be answered because when you look at the kind of person that Rick Greenspan has hired at Indiana, Sampson is the one hire that sticks out like a sore thumb. And I'm just talking about character here. Nothing more, nothing less.
I would like to get to the bottom of it too, Hutch. If only I didn't have this pesky day job, or if I had spent a decade as the IU beat reporter for the state's largest newspaper, then maybe I would put some time into it.

wow. it must be that easy, if you can rip off a post like that -- why can't he turnaround an investigative report no one else can nail down. The Star ought to hire you.

Tongue-in-cheek, my friend. Actually, it's encouraging that Hutchens is trying to get to the bottom of it. But I still think it's odd that Kravitz made that mention of Jeff Cohen almost in passing, "everyone knows that" fashion when there hasn't been much reported on it in the objective news portion of the Star's sports page.
