    Either Sean is playing the deny, deny, deny game and is lying...after all what does he have to lose if he did it?
    or
    ESPN was wreckless and Schlabach's career and that of his editors that have now doubled down will soon be over.

    So do we trust the coach or the reporter?
    He's on multiple wire taps, some of which with Dawkins. No idea what they have on those recording gs, but they exist and Miller knows it. No way it's about Ayton, and that's a major fact for ESPN to screw up...

    If Miller knows it, why is he coming out so strong? Hoping to bluster his way through it?

    Being on the wiretap alone doesn’t constitute guilt. Just that he took calls from Dawkins while the FBI had him tapped. If he knows he didn’t do any dirty business with him, I can see him going out guns blazing...

    Gotcha. I thought he said that he never spoke with Dawkins, but I may have misheard.

    Said he never spoke to Dawkins about Ayton. That adds up since Dawkins had zero to do with Ayton...

    Bilas and that whole College Gameday crew moreso than anyone I heard were the ones that really were digging Miller's grave barely 24 hours after news broke. I would like to see them come out with guns ablazin on their employer if this in fact fake news created by ESPN

    Being guilty of something, and someone having proof you are guilty are two very different things.

    Is there a chance that Miller is totally innocent? Could he have injected himself into this pit (to insulate the program....saying any money deals go through me to shutoff any grimy deals from happening and tainting the program?????). Just hoping it is what happened.

    The fact that ESPN is already backing off of some of the report leads me to believe more may be wrong as well. If you are going to come out and say the FBI has Miller on a wiretap saying what is alleged about Ayton and you are already now saying it was not about Ayton, that is a HUGE swing and miss. This is no minor issue. I wish Ayton could sue ESPN and the reporter but it is very difficult to win these sorts of lawsuits.

    Duke Lacrosse case...UVA rape case...the last two years in politics...I don't take the word of any news sources at face value any longer. EVERY news media outlet has some sort of bias IMO

    How about Duke students trolling ESPN with “check your sources” chant.
