I am completely stunned by Swarbirck's (sp?) comments yesterday. Namely, that conditions were "unremarkable" prior to the wind suddenly picking up, causing the accident. Anybody in the area knows that the 50-60 mph winds were constant throughout those two days. Moreover, the victim's own words clearly indicate that these conditions existed in SB, and that roughly 30 mins prior to the accident he was "terrified."
Secondly, this response:
"It's not one decision. There are multiple decisions made," he said. "It's not a decision to go outside. It's a host of decisions relevant to ‘Do you go outside?
A predictable and perfectly plausible answer, yes. For me though, I can't help but infer. It blames "multiple decisions" rather than implicating any specific decision-maker or even the football program as a whole. While I suppose I shouldn't expect the AD to throw his employees under the bus (especially this early in the investigation), to me this response is highly defensive and smacks of damage-control.
