    Don't know what kind of experience you're looking for, but I just gave this info to a friend of mine who just graduated from Ole Miss as the Sports Editor for the Daily Mississippian.

    He'd do a great job.

    Rusty is good people even if he did hire that veazey guy who tweets constantly from starkvegas.

    I'll echo that. I've only dealt with Rusty a half-dozen times, but he's a good guy to work with. And the sports staff there at the Clarion-Ledger are all good people.

    Rusty is ACES, even if he has fallen down mightily in the setting-up-of-the-golf aspect in recent years. The C-L treats its standout employees well, and I would think this gig would get quite a bit of interest.

    Prediction: Rusty, you will have at least 50 resume packages by Sunday.

    This job makes me wish I was still in the biz and one of those 50 ... Have spoken and corresponded with Rusty a few times. Like many papers, the C-L has had to deal with issues, but Rusty was always cordial, friendly and helpful. Good luck to any of you among that 50, and I hope Rusty lands a solid choice out of them.

    We have received more than 100 applications for this job. Thanks to all those who have applied. We are going through candidates now and will be contacting finalists in the next week or so. I have responded to some of the applications to confirm receipt but not all. I apologize to those I haven't contacted. If you want to know if your application was received, drop me another e-mail and I'll respond. E-mail is the best way to get me.
    thanks again for the interest shown in this position.
