West Virginia ImplosionFest 2011: Bill Stewart Wanted Reporter To 'Dig Up Dirt' On Holgorsen

There's two camps right now when it comes to the situation in West Virginia. There's Charleston Gazette writer Dave Hickman, who thinks the whole thing is made up, and then there's everyone else.

Former Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writer Colin Dunlap made sure of that last night when he appeared on 93.7 The Fan, and dropped the neutron bomb.

Early this morning on 93.7 The Fan, former Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writer Colin Dunlap accused Bill Stewart of calling and asking him to "dig up this dirt" on Dana Holgorsen.  This conversation included Stewart asking Dunlap to investigate into any DUIs or skeletons in Holgorsen's closet.

According to Dunlap, this exchange occured on December 18, just four days after the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette first reported that Holgorsen would become the coach-in-waiting for the 2011 season.

The chances of Bill Stewart still being the head coach at West Virginia by September...fading...fading...

Sports By Brooks has the audio, as well as wonderful quotes such as "He said, ‘can you get the word ’scumbag’ tattooed on the front of the sports page?’"

Keep an eye on Smoking Musket as this thing keeps blowing up.
