Is this a little "hindsight is 20/20?"
What I reading here is there should have been someone at UA who would have thought far enough in advance to know Carol was going to attend the hearing, she would tweet out details, and the press would run with it in the fashion they have? And, on top of that, they should have seen the "timeline" and known Oats would be questioned during his press conference?
We can point to countless stories that have gone viral where the original reporting, while inaccurate, fueled days upon days of media fodder. Unfortunately, we've also seen how difficult, if not impossible, it is for people to get ahead of the story (like Miller, UA, et al.)
As a side note of sorts, let's look at the way the SEC handled this past week. Brandon was definitely snubbed on the Freshman of the Week award. (It was nice to see him get National Player of the Week.) Did the SEC make their decision with this in mind, knowing, if they awarded Brandon what he deserved they'd be facing a media storm?
