You can keep the ugliness

  • Well, that was an amazing 'last duty as sports editor,' don't you think? What a game, and what a way to go out! I like your candor and willingness to discuss being young-with-reponsibiities. You are a bit "dark" (I don't know how eles to describe it) in your writing, but it is well-written. I look forward to what you have to say, and having a music critic on board is an excellent step forward for the Banner.

  • Hello Jared,

    I know you're a "caveman", but would you mind clarifying the following paragraph you wrote:

    "But then there's the ugly side of being a fan. There is no sportsmanship among fans at this game. Arguments and fights are bound to break out, especially have people have more drinks and become more willing to making horse's behinds of themselves."

    I was very surprised that you did not write anything about DePauw's quarterback being named after a potato's shwonce.

    Doesn't anyone else see the humor in having Mr. Potato Shwonce's picture on the front page of the Banner? I thought it was hilarious.

    Keep up the good work!

    Jared Jernagan's response:
    Sorry. Thought I was as clear as I could be, given that this is a family website...
  • We'll get it back next year. By the way, where exactly is DePauw keeping it right now? Perhaps I can go look at it.....maybe....

  • At least you were honest in your pick. That's something some sports reporters would have chose to stay away from and made a 'safe' pick.
