    Dustin Dopirak.
    From Harrisonburg, Va., paper.
    Good for him, good for Bloomington. And Harrisonburg will recover nicely because Chris Simmons is that good.
    Win-win-win all around. GOOD news in the biz for a change!
    A round for everybody (on Dustin of course)

    Congrats to him, but he should consider deleting his MySpace page yesterday.

    Because there's stupid stuff in there, and he's moving into a big-boy beat with looney fans that would take that page and plaster it all over their fanboi blogospheres.

    Ah. Haven't been on MySpace in about a year.

    Dustin's smart. I'm sure he'll make all the necessary arrangements.

    Playthrough and Bullwinkle, I'm actually going to come out and thank you here, because I more or less forgot what I even had on that thing and I've begun taking stuff off. What all did you guys find problematic, just the stuff that was written in the profile or pictures and such as well? Do you think I have to delete the thing completely?

    Also, appreciate the props from Moddy and Sonner. Thanks guys.

    Dude. It's MySpace. Delete the entire thing. You don't still use that, do you?

    Hey - if I'd known you were a MySpace dolt *****

    I guess you just outed yourself, too. Outing alert: Duton is Dustin Dopirak.

    I was not particularly fond of all the booze and party pictures. And yes, be VERY glad that you have the opportunity to remove those pictures before Hoosiers fans find out you're on the beat.

    Also, your musical tastes stink. :D

    Congrats to Dustin. This sounds like a great gig with good people to work for and with.

    That was disappointingly tame.

    Yeah, like Bullwinkle, I'm judging you on your music taste. But nothing all that bad :(

    Always good to keep your social network pages safe, but again, I'd bet that about 2 percent of IU kids actually visit MySpace anymore.
