"The source also said a published report Saturday morning that Indiana had made an offer to Washington State's Tony Bennett was inaccurate. Indiana has not offered anyone the job, according to the source.
Reached Saturday morning in Pullman, Bennett told ESPN.com, "I haven't had one conversation with [Indiana] and so, no, I haven't been offered the job.''
Washington State athletic director Jim Sterk said Saturday morning that no school has asked for permission to talk to Bennett."
Well, that didn't take long. Per Fox Sports at least, the cat is officially out of the bag, and Indiana has made their move to Tony. Let's see how Tony handles this one. And this little matter of the Cal Bears has now cropped up, where Cougfan cites a report in the San Francisco Chronicle saying sources claim "Bennett is expected to leave WSU" and that he's already a finalist for their job. You can read that story here.
I tried our own source earlier today, as I actually heard a rumor something was up, but I didn't hear a thing back from him. So I don't have anything good "insider" views about what is out there. But the gut tells you this isn't a good thing.
I just hope we find out soon enough what he's going to do. I can't imagine he is the type of guy that is going to let this thing drag out. It makes you think we are going to get the word sooner rather than later. It's hold-your-breath time.
