Kragthorpe rumors confirmed

Oh my.

ESPN's Pat Forde wrote in his "Forde Yard Dash" column today that a source had informed him that it was "50/50" whether embattled first-year Louisville head coach Steve Kragthorpe would leave if he were offered the job at SMU.

Now WHAS-11's Kyle Draper and 790 a.m.'s Adam Neft are reporting that U of L football sports information director Rocco Gasparro has confirmed the 50/50 rumor. Both are also reporting that Tom Jurich is backing his head coach and wants him to stay.

It certainly sounds like the SMU job is Kragthorpe's for the taking, and I think it has become extremely clear which way the Cardinal fan base is hoping he's leaning.
