    Were Goldberg and Scarbinsky both let go/bought out? I know that was supposed to go down this week.

    If so, are you going to make the prediction of Scarbinsky to Louisville?

    That would be a great add.

    Does he remember how to write a column on something besides college football or basketball?

    I'm guessing that would cover him for 90 percent of his job in Louisville.

    When you're told not to write about anything but football or basketball ...

    Oh I know the pressure comes from above on topic choice, but it has gotten damn ridiculous. Talladega races twice a year, and he writes football. Indy race at Barber, and he writes football. Senior PGA has a major here, and he only shows for the pro-am to write about the football coaches playing. SECOND baseball tournament comes in every year, he writes about it by tying it in to Saban and football. And it's not like he's breaking that formula on his new radio show, or weekly TV yakfest.

    Seriously, if anyone wants a good chuckle (or LULZ for the internet-savvy hipsters out there) check out the picture of the guy drinking coffee next to the "Keys to Success" header in the Managing Producer ad.

    For these newspapers (including Press-Register, Times, and NOLA), candidates apply through some hiring agency. How much oversight does the sports editor at each place have? I would imagine a bit, but how does the hiring agency know what candidates to present to sports editor? There is no spot for clips on the resume packages, so the agency never really sees how good a writer each applicant is.
