University of Alabama football recruiting reporter/writer/columnist needed

    Looking for a University of Alabama football recruiting reporter/writer/columnist for ESPN affiliate CrimsonConfidential.com. Need a sports journalist who has experience in covering recruiting and has a passion for it. Living in Alabama is a plus but not a requirement. Alabama, it should be noted, has become one of college football's top recruiting powers since Nick Saban arrived in 2007.

    If interested, please e-mail Erik Stinnett at stinnetterik@gmail.com and include resume.

    Alabama football was invented in 2007. It never existed before Nick the Prick got there.

    Roll Tide.

    So the reporting part is devalued as long as you skim other news outlets for your stories?

    There is one of these so-called "ESPN affiliates" in my neck of the woods and it is an utter debacle. Doesn't mean this one is, but it does mean that being an "ESPN affiliate" doesn't mean anything.

    I'm stunned ESPN allows itself to be associated with the site that operates here. It's run by a fan with no journalistic experience whatsoever who takes wild guesses on stories and generally behaves like a fanboy boob everywhere he goes.

    In this area, it would pretty much be career suicide to work for that site, assuming your career is journalism.

    Like I said, they're probably not all like the one here. The point is to forewarn about the ESPN affiliate thing.

    I used to work in this position alongside Erik. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me at gary.lloyd87@gmail.com.

    Erik is a professional in every sense of the word, in my opinion, and I hate that all these Web sites are lumped together as "fans" who are writing, etc. Erik is great at what he does, and he just needs a little help.

    Again, feel free to ask me anything about this job.

  9. Are they still affiliated with ESPN.com? I only see like five sites still on recruiting site. Is ESPN getting out of team site business?

    Unless something has changed, expect the pay to be abysmal.

    Last I checked, it pays better than not writing! :)

    That's pretty much the business, right?
