    Are you saying the sports editor of the "No. 1 college newspaper in the country" should have enough contacts to not beg for a job on a message board?

    By the way, I could work for the newspapers in question if they paid me a ton of money. I accept PayPal.

    IU, I'll try to put this mildly, but why in the hell would you sit back and tell them to call you?

    Odds are they will get a good number of resumes.

    Show some initiative and send the resume without being asked, especially since it's an open position.

    Really? I think the sports editor of the 274th best newspaper in the U.S. would know better. What is this, amateur hour?

    And nice avatar.
