Watts holding press conference at 2pm
Supposedly was going to have one on one sit down with someone from Fox but has since decided he was going to do this press conference instead.

Same story with AL.com reporters.

Ask him when he plans to meet with football season ticket holders?

Watts holding press conference at 2pm
My take on a press conference is that a decision of some sort may have been made. Whether that is to rescind the decision to disband football or to announce his resignation, I think either is possible. The previously planned one on ones may have been more along the lines of selling his defense and taking questions. To divert strategy and call a press conference with media makes me think it's more along the lines of an announcement. This could all just be more wishful thinking on my part in terms of the possible announcements. But I do not think this will be a time where Watts will take questions and try to present a defense which I think was the likely objective of the one on one interviews planned before.

I wonder if they changed the 1-on-1s to a press conference because the PR people realize he can't tell the same story twice. I don't see him reinstating anything, he has repeatedly said he will not, and I don't see him stepping down. But, rumor is the mini-meetings he is having is not helping, so he may see the writing on the wall and just may be giving up. I certainly hope so!

Press conference will again be from the admin building.

We all remember the last press conference from Watts at the admin building...

It's a big if of course and I certainly wouldn't be surprised if it were just more canned statements addressing the criticisms. But if there was a resignation or reinstatement decision coming, I doubt it would be his. It might likely be forced on him by the BOT in an effort to quiet the rhetoric.
