USA Today just announced 3 hires: Eric Prisbell from the Washington Post. Simon Samano from http://NFL.com. David Meeks from LA Times
Think he comes out with an article regarding AAU recruiting now??
He's terrible. And I'm not talking about content. His writing style is amatuer at best.
That he was willin to be a mouthpiece for Yow (or anyone, reallly) says all I need to know about his journalistic integrity. There's no need to ever read another piece of garbage he writes.
Add on that he's lazy and talks a big game hike delivering nothing, and he may be the worst thing going in sports journalism right now.
He never was a hit with the fan. Some journalists think want to be the jouranlist to break the big story (Eric Prisbell) rather than the journalist who gives insightful analysis (Patrick Stevens). Prisbell made it clear which type of journalist he wanted to be. He wanted to break the big story. His analysis bordered from fairly intelligent sometimes to what you would expect from an emotional wound up fan after a heartbreaking loss on this messageboard--garbage.
Sweet, now he can publish his big expose at the door of every hotel room in america!
Yeah, right after his "big expose" on NCAA cheating, which has been in the works for years. Never found any story on the Terps he couldn't spin negatively. He is a POS personified. Good riddance.

what a piece of shit. I hope his plane crashes
maybe a dumb question, but is McPaper an upgrade from the Post?
I would not think so. But I'm sure more money was involved and, from his lack of journalistic integrity, that must be all he cares about.

By circulation and nationwide readership, it's a upgrade. By pay it's probably a push. By content it's not as good, IMO.
Will await his multiple shots at MD in the USA Today "What's wrong with the ACC?" infographic.
I guess I meant is a better job, more prestige, etc.
Thereby giving him much in common with many of today's pro athletes.
he never could accept that he was the beat writer (along with Yanda who was also no good) for Maryland sports and instead of doing well with his duty, he tried to be something and do something that wasn't there.
holy crap I just saw a pic of his fucked up face and he is from NJ. It's all starting to make sense.
Definitely not a better job with the shape Gannett is in right now. Probably not quite as prestigious, either. A lateral move at best.
OK. I mean what I am really getting at is did the post realized he sucked and ate voluminous satchels of foreskin so they encouraged him to move on, or was this actually a career upgrade. I'm glad it's at least not the latter.
How wet do you think his panties must be at the fact that he has an entire thread devoted to him on here?
I look forward to his take on The Great Pencil Debate.
Early reports are that #2 is #1, but his investigative skills will sniff out the truth either way.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
I honestly think he hated maryland fans criticizing him all the time. He made a point to take shots at us repeatedly in many articles which indicates to me he was pretty sensitive to us thinking he sucked. The sad part is that Liz Clarke kind of sucks as well, at least in some of her coverage of MD.
he reaped what he sowed.
I like to think that my contact with the Post ombudsman helped lead to his leaving. I'm sure it didn't but I still like to think it.
