    Rodney Billups ‏@rodneybillups "it ain't what people call you, it's what you answer to." I'll answer to Coach Billups from here on out. #GoBuffs

    Sure sounds like it.

    Coach A gone?

    Either that or it would have to be Rohn or Pri finally getting a much-deserved HC job.

    Incorrect, Coach A and Billups have switched roles, from what I've been told. This has been in the works for awhile now.

    Thanks. Makes sense. Coach A likes to network, recruit and scout. Coaching on the court isn't his passion.

    That is a really good idea....Coach A gets the free time to recruit and be more social

    Admittedly not well versed in the responsibilities involved with the Director of Basketball Operations position, but I don't believe they are allowed to recruit players, unless that rule has changed recently.

    I believe texts and phone calls are ok. There's also a restriction on how many staff members can be on the road recruiting at any one time.

    Tziskin when I found out the confirmation of it I tweeted it. Our tweets came out at same time. I did NOT use you as my source.

    As someone who works in media Tzisk, I would not tweet out something using you as a source. Unlike some of the guys out there I am trying to do things the right way. This is even more true because I know the staff is sensitive to these types of things in light of the BuffScoop incident. Do not appreciate you saying I stole information at all.

    Very snoody post. As someone who reads media, I do not appreciate you being a stuck-up dick over an accusation you could have addressed politely.

    Someone said i stole something. To make an assumption that I "steal" information is worst thing someone can say. It goes right after my credibilty and integrity and I feel like I have done nothing to warrant a personal attack in my mind.

    nevermind.

    The whole notion of stealing info is so weird to me. As is stuff like the 24 hr rule on allbuffs. Why is college athletics media treated differently than all other news media?

    I get that. My point is that you don't know why he thinks you stole it. Instead of asking and explaining, you go into how honorable you are and then attack him right back. Could have been handled better, imo, but I do understand you being upset at being called a thief. Seems like a misunderstanding, though, that doesn't deserve a ****storm started.

    I never attacked Tzisk, I know who he is and hes a good guy and I do not want a **** storm. Just surprised he claimed that I stole information without asking me who my source was. I came and said I did not appreciate it and that's the end of it, until you called me a dick Rugged. I do not get the point of personal attacks on a message board, but not something I will lose sleep over.

    Meh. I probably helped the misunderstanding. My bad also I guess. I know him and I don't know you so I took his side. All good.

    It's too damn hot outside. Tempers flare for no reason. Second spat in as many weeks over journalistic ethics. I suggest air conditioners for all!

    BCS he should have sent me one. He wrote that on public board so I responded on public board. Look everyone making this a bigger deal than it needs to be. I wish we talked about what actually happened the promotion of a dynamic coach and CU taking one of their best recruiters off the road. Thats much more interesting debate.

    I can't find it anymore but I think I had something pop up on my fb wall from Colorado Athletics saying that Abertemarco was in his new position... "for now." So maybe they're promoting Billups in preparation for A leaving
