    People take this thing quite seriously, despite its rather dated and ordinary appearance. I heard that when Campbell called a Texas paper a few years back and the person answering had no idea who he was, the staffers in the office couldn't stop laughing and that Campbell was dumbfounded by not being instantly recognized.

    that's obvious by the awesome pay.

    It is very highly thought of. But it also comes out so early, that there are always tons of mistakes in it -- though really, the schedules should never be screwed up because in Texas they hammer the schedules out 2 years in advance.

    I know a guy who would be perfect for this job, but I'm not sure if he'd want to move.

    I have everyone of these things back to 1989. I get all tingly in July when it comes out.
    When I covered high schools in the late 1990s, I nearly wore it out by the end of the seeason.
    Anyone remember during an episode of Friday Night Lights when they had Smash on the cover of TF?

    I go back to 1984, but I have an uncle who cleaned out his garage and found several from the late 60s early 70s that he passed along to me. I love thumbing through the old ones and seeing which of the Super Team selections actually did anything at the next level. I also have a nice collection of the Dave Campbell's Arkansas Football magazines from the old SWC days.

    Best thing about the job would be not having to live in Waco.
  10. Dave Campbell's is a great magazine that has a ton of work put into it. And they accomplish all of it with fewer people than you would think. Jake Shaw does a great job over there, and he's a great guy, too.

    I'm expecting an awesome issue this year for the 50th anniversary.

    I second pressboxramblings. A lot of work done by very few people. (Imagine that, right?)

    Jake Shaw's a great guy. Football season in Texas officially starts when DCTF hits the stand the second week of June.
