    this time on his own. The Pipeline reports he's headed to U Florida to become the Web site writer, I think in a similar gig to what my old colleague Jeff White got at UVA. The Pipeline is always appreciated but probably wasn't necessary in this case. I think Scott has it on his Facebook page.

    Good for Scott, a terrific reporter and better guy.

    Great move for Scott. Wishing him nothing but the best in his new digs.

    And hope he loads up on notepads, paper clips and pens as he leaves the paper that screwed him over.

    I don't think there's enough paper clips in America...but glad he's leaving on his terms.

    Yet another example of a good writer leaving a newspaper for a web site. Could it be that there aren't any suits at web sites?

    I'm not familiar with the Web site in question --- is it run by the University of Florida?

    If it's like White's gig in Charlottesville, yes, it's run by the University. The writer reports to an associate A.D. outside of media relations, I believe.

    Egad. And the wheel continues to turn at Mother Trib. With football season starting in less than two weeks, I wonder how they're going to fill the beat. In-house? Are there enough people left at what used to be Florida's largest sports department?

    Good for Scott, of course.

    Hopefully, it went like this:

    Was the Tribune really Florida's largest sports department? I guess I was thinking Miami had that honor.

    That's what we were told, anyway. For a brief, shining moment in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Trib Sports roster exceeded 65 full-time employees, with bureaus from Tallahassee to Miami, and everyone assigned to the sports department (as opposed to answering to local news editors).

    More than 65 in sports alone? That's staggering.
