Ruh Roh! Who is Charles Robinson working on now?

SBNation’s Holly Anderson has a brief story on ESPN Chicago’s interview with Yahoo! Sports Reporter Charles Robinson. Robinson is a writer with solid gold credentials as an investigative reporter, having broken stories that launched the Southern Cal – Reggie Bush NCAA investigation. Robinson also wrote most recently on the Oregon Ducks’ relationship with a pair of street agents recruiting services.

Here is Anderson’s recap of the conversation between show hosts Tom Waddle and Marc Silverman and guest Charles Robinson (emphasis added):

ESPN: So is there another team, another organization, another sport that should be nervous right now because you're working on something comparable?
Robinson: Yeah [laughs], we've still got a couple more coming.


[several moments of back-and-forth banter]
Robinson: I've got probably a six to a seven, maybe an eight depending on where you live coming in the next two weeks, and then by August, a ten.
ESPN: Well, what would you consider the Tressel story, on a one to ten?
Robinson: Probably an eight.
ESPN: So there's something even bigger than that coming in the summertime?
Robinson: Yeah. Yeah. There's one I've been working on since, I don't know, I'm probably entering my fourth month on it, and we'll probably get a good six, seven months in on it before I'm done.

You can catch the podcast of the show here.

Things that make you go “Hmmm.” Anderson jumps right to the obvious conclusion below the block quote. Auburn fans, remember this: There are two people you don’t want to see showing up in your back yard. Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports, and Jim Cantore of the Weather Channel. Either way, you know a disaster is about to strike.
