    The easiest headline for this is
    Petrino can't decide on which Dick to use
    Anyway, here's a snippet of the AP story. See if you can do better.
    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino still isn't saying much about who the starting quarterback will be this weekend at Mississippi State.
    Casey Dick, the senior who has started all season, is still a candidate this week. But so is his younger brother, redshirt freshman Nathan Dick.

    When Casey Dick signed with Arkansas, the sports editor of the Democrat-Gazette sent out a memo that Dick's last name would never be used in a headline. Not sure if that's still the case, but it was for a while.
