It's not just the writing, a lot of sports reporters are lazy in their press conferences and interviews.  For whatever reason it's like nails on a chalkboard to me when a reporter tells some coach/player/whoever "Talk about X." It's like "Hey, I don't have time to figure out how to put this in the form of a question just give me my damn sound bite."

Listen for it in the next presser you watch and make a drinking game out of it. You'll be obliterated by the end of it.

Random resurrection of that Bill Russell goof from last year's presidential inauguration.

From the Dispatch:

Although Irvine enrolls about half the number of students as OSU, it has established itself as a prominent research university. It is ranked the No. 14 public university in the country, according to the U.S. News and World Report rankings, ahead of Ohio State, which ranks No. 16.

If a trusted source asks you not to name them and you do you burn them and won't ever be able to use them again, which is rarely worth it. Plus others in the future aren't going to trust you if they know you'll blab their name everywhere. When someone cites a trusted source it's really more about how much do you trust the outlet saying it. Do i trust FootballBraniacs.com? I don't know, never heard of them before yesterday. But remember, 11W has broken some pretty big stories before without naming names, too.

VERY thinly veiled, but at least they're finally trying to address it, especially since that little addendum seems to come from Block O more than anywhere else.

Gee has a great framed quote in his office by General Eric Shinseki: "If you don't like change, you're going to like irrelevance even less." I think it sums up his mentality and the approach he took to his job so perfectly.
