You'll notice the question mark up there. That's because we've learned by now. The Miller fiasco has taught us - don't buy it until you hear some kind of official word. At least, don't buy it entirely.

But I'm starting to buy this.

So, we wait. Either we wait to hear Turgeon's decision, or we wait for someone to refute this report. Whichever comes first.

UPDATE 4:34: Billy Luicci, a well-respected TAMU reporter, says that there is a "tug of war" going on right now between TAMU and Maryland for the services of Turgeon. He also says that Turgeon appears to be on Maryland's campus, which is pretty telling about which side is winning.
