Bill Stewart vs. The Internet (with Bob Hertzel as referee)

Written by Colin Dunlap on .

Whether is it entirely true or not, West Virginia coach Bill Stewart is holding steadfast to something --- he doesn't read the Internet.

Or so he says.

In his Tuesday news conference, old-school newspaperman Bob Hertzel threw one of the sharpest questions yet since things turned a bit South this season following the Syracuse and UConn losses. 

Hertzel asked: "There seems to be an awful lot of interest these days on the Internet about your job security and future. Do you pay any attention to that?"

And Stew responded: "It is on the Internet? Are you talking about that message boards or what?"
Stewart paused for a moment and then continued.
"I don't blog, I don't know that," he said. "If I don't know it, it certainly hasn't bothered me. I just don't have that much time to give to that. I have no comment because I really don't know what you are saying. I am sure there are a lot of things being said. That's the right of Americans. We have the right to our opinion."

An interesting exchange, no doubt.

Now is where you come in, and something that I wanted to ask you, the reader:

Do you think Bill Stewart reads the Internet? Or, do you think the guy is being honest here (as I do) and he steers clear of all such things?
