The rumor mill created quite a stir on Thursday afternoon.

UPDATE (1:55 p.m.): Listen to the audio that caused the controversy right here:


Early Thursday afternoon a Sirius XM radio show host tweeted that Gary Patterson had stated on the air that Josh Doctson was out for the season. The tweet has since been deleted, but the internet moves swiftly, and a screenshot was taken.

Of course, the host has started backtracking, and has yet to release the audio from the interview for review. Meanwhile, Gary Patterson was speaking at a donor luncheon, where multiple people have reported he told the room that Doctson was probable for Saturday's game against Kansas.

Just moments later, ESPN's Jake Trotter was able to confirm, directly from Patterson, that this was the case.

So, there's your fun for the afternoon!
