    I see the often-controversial editor in Indy got promoted. Perhaps he is doing something right?

    I have no idea what you're talking about, but there are many examples of where "doing something right" and getting promoted have absolutely no relationship to each other.

    Sorry for being coy. Ronnie Ramos apparently making a quick impact since arriving at the Star. Just got promoted. Hard to knock that.

    Much-discussed? If someone put together a list of the most popular topics in SJ history, I'm confident Ronnie Ramos would not make the Top 10,000.

    I don't know anyone at the Indianapolis Star but remeber the theory of promoting the least qualified man. The least quailified man will never threaten the person who promoted but will instead serve with servile loyalty.

    The most prominent example in sports history is when Paul Brown retired as head coach of the Bengals and promoted the O-line coach, Bill Johnson instead of the O-coordinator, Bill Walsh, to head coach.

    Just so Fran Curci knows he wasn't the only one: I, too, actually did notice that.

    It's Gannett. Enough said.

    His most notable feat was when, as the NCAA's director of social media, he waged a Twitter war with the likes of the New York Times' Joe Nocera and Yahoo's Dan Wetzel for writing mean things about the NCAA.

    Now that's a journalist!

    I know people who worked for him in Atlanta, at the NCAA (not sure if it was for him or with him) and in Indy and the opinions are identical....

    It's a good thing he left. He'd be having his hands full from the last two weeks.

    Mizzou -- what were the opinions? (Talk about being coy ...)
