    Not being snarky -- used to live in the area and I'm aware of the school's reputation -- but is this a job that anyone on this board could possibly be qualified for? I mean, Ph.D., research program history, etc. ... it's a sports journalism center but would a top-shelf sports journalist have a chance? The Director job posted here seems more likely.

    Apropos of nothing, but did all the sportswriters from Indiana catch SARS from Danica Patrick or something? You can't swing a dead cat on this board without hitting a Hoosier State opening.
