Somebody Thinks They Have Some Dirt On Texas

Only question is whether it's Will Lyles or Will Lyles and Charles Robinson.

Charles Robinson stopped by the Geoff Ketchum radio show yesterday and it's worth a listen.

There's a lot of stuff in here, some about about the putative victimization of Will, how loyal Will is to the kids, etc. even though brief bedfellow Jason Whitlock doesn't see it that way.

The interesting stuff starts just before the 10:00 minute mark when one of the hosts asks @WindyCityScribe, just how worried Longhorn fans should be.

We started this latest round a few days ago when Lance Zierlein said Texas was going to get a lot of unwanted attention or something from a forthcoming Yahoo / Will Lyles column.

Lance and I were discussing how and when things might shake out and Lance said he thought things had been held up be legal.

@BlatantHomerism @TomahawkNation @lancezierlein @inthebleachers He should probably tread carefully. We play on Joe Jamail Field, after all.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply

During the broadcast, when answering the question about trouble for Texas, Charles Robinson paraphrased said:

What you read about Texas in the story...is what we felt we could write.

In terms of Will and Texas. We'll see. Going forward, we'll see.

He does speak of much of the speculation about Texas being "unfounded" but he seems cagey and cryptic.

So let's idly speculate. Rumors were Lyles was going to snitch on a UT assistant, for what I don't know. Lord knows, we lost a few of them recently.

What I am curious about is the legal aspect. If Will Lyles wants to accuse somebody of something on the record, Yahoo is clear of any defamation issues, I would think. Were they just doing him a solid, pointing out the legal armada that could be brought to bear against him? Does Yahoo think it has some facts but not enough to challenge Texas?

Look, if we have a dude doing wrong, I want to hear about it and I want it dealt with. We pride ourselves on our clean living, so if we've done something wrong, let's deal with it.

If it's just mudslinging from a guy who should be cleaning aisle 7, then put a sock in it.

This is why we sent Peter Bean to law school. He'll have some answers for us.

What do you all think?
