What a scumbag. On Bill Kings show today, not only did he say as fact that Manti was in on it, but also said ND is covering it up, just like they have covered up other things in the past. The vitriol in his voice made it obvious his dislike of ND. At one point a caller asked if this will make the school look bad, King starts answering and Shurburt barks out "they don't care". I have seen where people have posted he hates ND but never saw proof of it, well today I see it. Went so far as to call Manti crazy.
I haven't listened to BKs show since the NC game. Turned it on this morning and caught part of Jason's segment, which was great as usual.
Ds not hear JCs side. Used to lkind of like him but now not so much. BK seemed to be more sympathetic to what ha happened, but like all of us is still kind of puzzled as to how this all happened
If Shurburt said that ND was in on it, then he better substantiate or he should be fired. That is a very irresponsible accusation.
I love the mods/reporters for the ND site, but I hate it that my money helps support such a jerk.
If Shurburt's comments are being accuratedly reported, then our
moderators need to assess how to deal with the situation. First,
they must communicate with Shurburt to ascertain whether he
has evidence to back up his allegations and if he does not,
then to express him to him that his unprofessional vitriol against
Notre Dame requires that he publically apologize. Absent such
an apology, I don't see how this site can continue ongoing
relations with one who is so lacking in human decency.
Just an opinion, that is all.
JC definitely has some disdain for ND. He can deny it all he wants but it comes through from time to time and it did this morning. He was very adamant that Teo and ND are lying.
Let's keep this thread going!
This guy is dead weight for such an amazing site/company. What he said and the tone he used is completely and utterly unprofessional. I'm good with him keeping his job...as long as he stops referring to himself as "reporter" or "journalist". He's an opinion writer that clearly loses sight of the facts and his obligation to readers.
JC's new job title: "biased writer", "angry SEC advocate writer", or how about "Bill O'Reilly of collegiate information".
Agree with all sentiments already made. One would think that a self proclaimed "reporter" would wait for the facts before making distinct accusations. Then if/when the facts come out and they were wrong they retract with "I was basing it off the facts I had at the time." This makes him no better than 95% of the posters on tBB.
This isn't reporting, this is what the TOS do (re: Jamel James), while the staff here at B&G waited until things were right to report it. If the facts come out and JC is wrong, and I was a part of the Notre Dame legal team, I would be looking into the slanderous comments made by this so called reporter.
I understand everyone has their bias, and their own opinion, but to come out with "matter of fact" type statements when all facts are not known is assinine and unprofessional. This is disgusting, and the more I think about it, the more I want to stop supporting him, albeit indirectly.

This makes me want to end my membership. I don't to support someone so reckless with his public comments.
and a damned good opinion at that! +1
I'm weighing that same issue. This is ridiculous.
I agree. To make such claims as fact and be communicating with potential recruits is not only disingenuous but also concerning from a legal perspective on 24/7's end potentially

No one calling themself a "journalist" should offer their opinion when all the facts have yet to be determined. JC is obviously someone with an ax to grind (based solely on his statements) and should no longer be considered a journalist.
It is glaring to me that none - I repeat ... NONE - of the four journalists associated with Blue & Gold have offered their opinion. Lou wrote a very good article on the subject, but only referred to the plausibility of statements made by both Te'o and Swarbrick. He did not offer his opinion as to whether or not either or both are lying or telling the truth.
Unfortunately, the absolute truth still eludes us all.
And so long as he is employed by 247Sports, JC should keep his trap shut until we know the facts.
