Seth Greenberg Tells Dan Dakich Unnamed Sources Are Dangerous

“People want to be in everyone’s pocket and get a click and get someone’s attention. I think it’s irresponsible”

With six head coaching vacancies currently in the NBA, one name that always seems to pop up around this time is Kentucky head coach John Calipari. In an article written by Ben Rohrbach and Vincent Goodwill at Yahoo Sports, Calipari was mentioned as a head coaching candidate with an executive telling Yahoo that “college basketball is a sinking ship.”

That was a topic on The Dan Dakich Show on 93.5 and 107.5 the Fan in Indianapolis on Thursday when Dakich was joined by ESPN analyst Seth Greenberg. The two of them host the Courtside with Greenberg and Dakich podcast

As the conversation continued about the report that Calipari is open to coaching in the NBA, the two of them talked about reporting and the use of sources. As Greenberg put it, a source could be anyone, so he is always skeptical when unnamed sources are cited.

“Everyone wants to speculate. I have one source. I just pick up the phone and call the coach. I don’t get into all that stuff. Guys hide behind the word sources. What’s your source? It could be the guy in the equipment room. I took a course when I was in college called writing for the media and part of it was showing you how to write…a source could be anyone.

“’Sources say someone close to Dan Dakich’. That could be the person down the hallway at your radio station. He’s close to him. He’s not close friends with him, but he’s close to him. You can get away with that.”

If the source is giving the reporter information for a very important story, Seth Greenberg feels it should not be anonymous.

“People want to be in everyone’s pocket and get a click and get someone’s attention. I think it’s irresponsible….When people start rumors and use the word sources.. if the source is good enough, put the person’s name next to it.” 

Greenberg says he wouldn’t buy the report Calipari wanted to coach in the NBA again unless he read a quote from Calipari himself. The ESPN analyst said otherwise, he would not buy any stories or reports because “everyone wants to speculate.”

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
