During her "peephole incident" last year in which a man drilled out a lock in her hotel room door and inserted a tiny camera to photograph her, Andrews confided in the Meyer family and leaned on them to get through the ordeal. ...Not that I look to Andrews for unbiased coverage of the University of Florida, but are you really allowed to do that as an ESPN college football reporter? To call a coach at a major college program, cry, and lean on him for support and advice?
"He can deal with haters," (Andrews said). "There were times last year when that whole thing happened to me when I called him up crying. And he was the one giving me advice about people like that. He did the same thing for Tim [Tebow]. He gave me some quotes to remember about how to handle that sort of thing. So, I really don't think it's that. The only people in his life that he wanted to please that I know of are Shelly and his three kids.
“But at this point, I haven't talked to Coach or Shelly and I really don't know anything. This came as a complete surprise to me and people I know in the inner circle are shocked."
What sort of a relationship is that for a reporter to have with a source?
