Rumors With Convenient Timing

Remember when Corey Fisher apparently got Scottie Reynolds' girlfriend pregnant, and that was the reason that the 2010 Villanova season ended so poorly? Then we found out that it didn't actually happen.

This time, it's a rumor about the coach, who has (rightfully in some cases) been taking flak for the team's performance as of late. I'm not going to regurgitate the rumor on here, because it's ugly, but so far there is no evidence that it's true despite all the innuendo, just like the rumor about Scottie and Fish.

Next time you hear a rumor that you cannot substantiate, don't spread it. Also, view a rumor with increased skepticism if it comes at a time when the team is struggling and any rumor provides an explanation as to why said team does poorly.
