Dan Dakich is not backing down from being challenged by an Indianapolis Star sports writer who re-circulated audio of Dakich referring to a local high school player as a meth head on his Indy radio show.

Dana Hunsinger Benbow is the reporter from the Star who covered Dakich’s original comments, which were made over two years ago on ESPN 93.5 and 107.5 The Fan. Dakich was offering a reaction to the firing of the head basketball coach at Scottsburg High School.

Scottsburg is a little town of less than 7,000 people that borders the Indiana/Kentucky line and is about 30 miles north of Louisville.

“Your boy’s a meth head, he’s a pain in the ass,” Dakich could be heard saying about the unnamed player. Emmis Communications, which owns The Fan, investigated Dakich’s comments.

Dakich quote tweeted it saying he would pay $5,000 if Benbow could provide an actual name of a player he was referring to.

Dakich also referred to Scottsburg as a town full of meth AIDS and needles and said “Take a dump in Scottsburg” should be the town’s new motto.

Dakich also hosts a daily show on OutKick called Don’t @ Me.

Though there’s still some time before a finished products reaches bookshelves, but ESPN’s Paul Finebaum is reportedly set to get a nice six-figure advance by Penguin Press.

According to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, Finebaum will make $700,000 plus royalties for the deep dive into the rivalry between the two SEC head coaches.

Back in the spring things came to a head between Alabama’s Nick Saban and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, as the two engaged in a verbal spat in separate press conferences over name, image and likeness.

Saban said Fisher and his staff utilized NIL and “bought every player” in the Aggies’ spring 2022 recruiting class.

Things got so heated and drew so many headlines that SEC commissioner Greg Sankey had to step in and try to get the former colleagues to cool it.

Finebaum is teaming up with Alabama beat reporter John Talty to write the book.
