    Trending on Twitter that Les Miles is going to resign after having an affair with a student... only one blog reporting so far, and that sounds just like a story based on the tweets without any substantiation.

    Anyone? God I hope that it's bullshit.

    I'll need to wash my eyes out a long time after all the journalism sins I saw on that linked page

    yeah, yeah, i know... and hate to give it any credibility at all. But the story is trending on Twitter (apparently), so just wondering if there's anything to it.

    So this is the point we've reached, that someone who floats a rumor not based on any sort of fact on a Saturday night about Les Miles, and that just because it's trending on Twitter we're giving it credibility?

    No . . . we're finding out whether or not it has credibility.

    And . . . it does not.

    I have a reliable (prepare for buzzword) *source* that tells me Les Miles will NOT step down Monday and that this entire rumor is BS. #LSU

    Thanks, Norrin, that's exactly why I posted it. I don't want to give it credibility at all, and hoped it wasn't true.

    I wish Miles could sue the guy who started this rumor and take everything he has.

    Not because I think Miles was horribly wronged by this but because idiots who start crap like this need to be destroyed.

    Yep. I wondered the same. What credibility does Twitter have?

    Is Twitter a person?
