Phew. I can sleep tonight. I caught Drive Time Sports driving home and the announcers said with dead certainty that there was no truth to rumors sweeping Hogland today that Athletic Director Frank Broyles, 82, was about to retire.

It's true that the UA Board of Trustees is to meet Saturday morning in Fayetteville for a short list of routine items. It's true that an executive sesssion is listed on the agenda. But if Randy and Rick say Frank isn't going anywhere, Frank isn't going anywhere. Right?

I admit the talk has been delicious. Better than talking basketball. It went like this: Frank would retire immediately and a successor would be sought quickly. He'd serve as emeritus A.D. and university fund-raiser for the balance of 2007 and then rip the cord on a retirement golden parachute, six years at full pay.

It was fun while it lasted. Right?

Now. Do you suppose it's true that THE e-mail is going to get further exposure in tomorrow's Democrat-Gazette?
