I'm passionate about journalism. You can find me in and out of Columbus coffee shops working and occasionally getting distracted on Twitter. When I worked for Ohio State's student newspaper, The Lantern, Gordon Gee chastised me by calling me the "damn sports editor." I spent the last year as the Buckeyes football/basketball beat writer for the the Rivals.com/Yahoo! Sports network. I like stories that look at the bigger picture. I think you should aim to write the truth, good and bad. You can send tips/compliments/hate mail/suggestions at [email protected] or [email protected]

Right, much of the money paid to the guest coaches/counselors goes to covering travel/lodging costs, which is noted by Fowler in his more in-depth piece. I think it's fair to say there's potential for abuse, though, and the notion of directly or indirectly paying for influence is worth looking into. Appreciate you reading.
