Not always. If you’re friends with someone in the program, you won’t give up
their name to CB, especially if it’s info they’ve been instructed to keep private (if you’re a trustworthy friend anyway). I’ve gotten info from someone high in the AD before, a name many on here would know, therefore I wouldn’t give up the name. CB likes to believe everyone is blowing smoke. When it comes to BIG 12 expansion rumors, yes, the’yre probably blowing smoke. This however, is totally plausible.
