    When a sports editor is named, someone please let us know and we can offer our comment and congratulations.
    Until then, nothing. The original thread went way south.

    We shouldn't have to moderate the jobs board as closely as we do the other. The jobs board is one of the best things we do here. We have actual editors who post their jobs. If it becomes a cesspool, that won't happen anymore.

    We've taken some hits from some for actual candidates being named in threads and I don't have a problem with that. We do it with coaches, administrators, etc. and we ought to be able to take it on our end. Good luck if you're flirting with another job and trying to keep it quiet from your current employers. You ought to be up front about things anyway.

    But the other garbage? That must stop.

    We'll revist Ann Arbor when we know something.

    Rant over, we thank you.

    I agree, but looking at the tone of things in general and on an hourly basis, exactly how high should expectations be?

    Good point and my only answer is higher than they are, at least over on this board.

    Any news? I hear another candidate bites the dust.

    So that's two this time around and three (maybe only two) from 3-4 years the last time it was open, if I'm not mistaken.

    One reason, but we can't discuss it on the board. ;)

    You children just can't help yourselves.

    Once again, would MGoBlue or Slappy care to share their own exits from The News? I think it's something that would certainly round out exactly where their perspectives come from.

    Let's tread easily folks.

    Well Slappy, Hank, we tried. And as I told TheInsider in a pm he/she didn't have the balls to answer, I'd be happy to share with him/her why I am no longer there.

    But alas, TheInsider must continue to hide behind a shroud.

    Anyway, nice to see the site back. Good job Webby, Moddy.

    Back to the beach.

    When we have news here, someone let me know. And I'll unlock it.
