Well, well, well…look what we have here. Super nerd sports reporter Dan Wolken, who made it to the Final Four of the 2021 Woke All-Star Challenge after making it out of the Toxic Masculinity Region, joined fellow Woke all-stars Keith Olbermann and Darren Rovell by dipping his toes into the Adam Schefter email drama, but sharks were waiting for Wolken.
The quick story for those of you who’ve been working is that ten years ago, Schefter sent a rough draft of a report to then-Redskins executive Bruce Allen to look at before it was published. Blue checkmarks freaked out over this lack of journalistic integrity, and Wolken wanted a piece of his competitor.
“How is ESPN’s top NFL reporter going to report on the biggest story in the NFL when part of the investigation if made public would reveal him sending copy he hadn’t yet filed to the GM of the team in question to edit. What a mess,” Wolken tweeted.
The problem with that tweet is that Dan has a history of this type of stuff. In 2017, the University of Tennessee released text messages revealing how former AD John Currie had been communicating with the USA Today sports reporter nerd and asked him for a favor.
Tennessee is finalizing the deal with Schiano. Hopes to name him later today, per person with direct knowledge.

“Gonna need some help on the Pr,” Currie wrote in a text to Wolken as the school prepared to hire Greg Schiano as its next football coach. “Our people are wacko.”
“I’ll help. Not sure they’ll listen. LOL,” Wolken responded back. “I know he’s a very good coach and is about the right stuff.”
