Some smoke but no fire, according to my sources. Apparently, UCLA representatives made at least one inquiry of U of L coach Steve Kragthorpe, though one source said multiple inquiries, but that he said “not interested.”
That doesn’t necessarily discount the L.A. Times piece, but I’d say if those sources are correct, Kragthorpe kept his word on this one.
I know. You might have sit down for a minute. It’s a novel concept. Again, with the back-room nature of these things, you never know. But with Rick Neuheisel emerging as the leading candidate at UCLA and Kragthorpe’s being mentioned in just this one place, really, I’d say there’s not much to see here.
But you always have to look.
