Lacey, the skeptics (polite term) should visit my sports writing class in the UA JCM Department. 80% women and they’re smart as hell about sports.

Dan, none of these guys are being evaluated for long term. The O’s’ next playoff team will have NO ONE from the current team. Maybe Bundy. (Mancini will be traded.) The only positives that matter are the ones in the minors.

I disagree that NHL statements constitute fully “owning it.” Still, this article is outstanding journalism. Thank you, JR.

Let me explain accountability to the NHL: It means you publicly state whether the officials were or were not in proper position, whose job it was to watch that area of the ice, and why they didn't see it. Simple, really.

But Jon, I don’t see how you can blame the refs when the hand pass took place in a dimly lit corner of the rink so far away from the Blues net. Who would ever think to look there???

And thank YOU, Tim and the Anniston Star, for the non-classroom education you're giving these students.

You know, Clay, Hannah told me it was all me and none you. 😆😆 Seriously, congratulations to all the JMC grads. I saw a lot of impressive students.

Great news. My biased (but accurate) opinion: This show is worth listeners' time.

So you’re saying I should have been rooting for Nashville instead? Dallas seemed like a good idea at the time.

This will be a must-read. Does the Franchione interview get two chapters or three?

Thank you, Tom. Got it ... maybe. I think as a precaution I'll print your tweet and hold it in my lap while I watch the games today.

My thoughts on crime reporting (and yet more publicity for the remarkable of the Alabama Media Group) in my latest blog post:

You may know this already but Pam Huff, Rick Karle and Kevin Scarbinsky are wise, entertaining and opinionated. Made for a terrific panel for UA students today. Much obliged to

Journalist's Resource, a Harvard University website that reports on academic research relevant to media, wrote about my co-authored journal article on how web metrics affect journalism. The JR piece is a lot less torture than reading the real thing.

Good practice for the bigger stage at UA on March 28, Kevin! Hope you tried out all your jokes!

Just finished class that included debate on what news elements media should publish re a mass killer (name, photo, profile, manifesto, video). A needed debate, I think. I do this whenever there's such an atrocity. And I realized...I've yet to get thru a semester w/o doing this.

Sometimes in the college admissions process, you can't know what you're going to get. This week's college admissions scandal got me to thinking about this.

National TV sports broadcasts may be mostly for entertainment, but I still expect the prospect of journalism, which includes not trampling all over basic standards. My thoughts on the flabbergasting case of ESPN and Jessica Mendoza.
