A number of media organizations (more than four) have made multiple FOIA requests for personnel files within the athletic department. They are looking for information related to the recent controversies surrounding Kearney, Applewhite and others. If there is incriminating stuff in those files, and there's reason to believe there is, then the dominoes will fall pretty quickly, starting at the top.
If there is nothing else in the records other than what's already come out, then nothing happens.
We shall know within a week or two, at most.
You know nothing Jon Snow
Jon Snow speaks the truth.

So apparently nothing has changed since a radio dude in Houston started a shit show last night. Gotcha.
So the long and the short of it is, you don't know shit.
I have a pretty good idea what kind of a person you are...
All dwarfs may be bastards, yet not all bastards need be dwarfs.
Wonder who downvoted me.
No need to shoot the messenger.

"Leadership is wisdom, courage and great carelessness of self"
Just out of curiosity, are personnel records covered by the FoIA? Aren't there privacy issues involved?
Incorrect. He was very clear. if there is something in the records then shit happens but if there is nothing in the records then nothing happens.
So....OP reads the internet just like the rest of us.
Signatures are stupid. You should block them.
And for those of us 3 figure donors who aren't in the know, what would OFN be singing like a canary about?
I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
you know. stuff that may or may not be in records requested by many through foia requests.
Winter is coming.

Chance the Gardener: "As long as the roots are not severed, all is well. And all will be well in the garden."
President Bobby: "In the garden."
Chance the Gardener: "Yes. In the garden, growth has it seasons. First comes spring and summer, but then we have fall and winter. And then we get spring and summer again."
President Bobby: "Spring and summer."
Chance the Gardener: "Yes."
President Bobby: "Then fall and winter."
Benjamin Rand: "I think what our insightful young friend is saying is that we welcome the inevitable seasons of nature, but we're upset by the floundering of our seasons."
Chance the Gardener: "Yes! There will be growth in the spring!"
Please pardon the butchering of the dialog, and the crass use of your alias, Flounder32. ;)

In an attempt to answer my own question, I found this regarding Federal personnel records:
FOIA and Official Personnel Folders (OPF)
Most information in a Federal (non-archival) Official Personnel Folder (OPF) is not releasable to the general public without the written consent of the individual whose record is involved. The Freedom of Information Act does allow, however, for certain information to be released without the individual's consent. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has determined that the following information can be released to the public:
Past and present positions
Past and present titles
Past and present salaries
Past and present grades
Past and present job locations
Use of Freedom of Information Act information (FOIA) and Privacy Act in access to Military Personnel Records in the National Archives, St. Louis, MO
Ahhh. Lotta meat there.
