    How many ASEs are they down to? At one point under McKenzie/Hoppes they had 10 or 11.

    Granted, most of those ASEs were pretty damn good.

    I'm guessing Tyler Dunne isn't in the running.

    Has the Sentinel sports section gone way, way, way downhill from its heyday?

    I was in town a couple weeks ago and picked up a couple copies, hoping to see what all the buzz was about with the Sentinel.

    Was monumentally unimpressed with the section. Granted, it was during the week and during the non-busy time of year, but in some ways, that's when you see what a section is made of. It's easy to put out great content and packaging when it's in the middle of college football season in SEC country.

    It's gone downhill, but it's still one of the better sections around.

    It hasn't dropped off on the level of the KC Star or AJC.

    Someone PM'd me with this crack about this job.

    If this opening was in South Florida, they'd just promote a preps writer.

    I'm sorry, but that's damn funny.
