    Maybe the Star laid off one too many people in the art department.

    Good thing Coach K is not Muslim. They would be a bulls-eye on the cartoonist's head.

    design gone bad...should have caught that before it went to press...just a poor idea and even more poorly executed. Usually a solid section...I'm surprised.
  4. As much as I dislike Coach K and Duke, he is right. Very juvenile. Looks like the son of the editor came in and drew on the cover.

    I think it's nice that they turned him into Jigsaw.
  6. See? This is what happens when local teams make the Final Four.

    Looks like I'm in the minority, but I liked it. Maybe the target was a bit much, but I thought it gave some nice illustration to the story.

    Can't wait to see what our favorite pizza-delivery boy thinks of it.

    Satan still waiting for apology after being made to look like Coach K.

    That's horrifying. As mentioned previosuly, that should have never seen the light of day. What an embarrassing centerpiece.

    It's true --- this is what can happen when you keep trying to do more with less. I'd like to think that could never happen in my department, but who knows?
