Newspaper Layoffs

It looks like the internet is killing the newspaper. Massive layoffs at the Post, and buyouts at the Sentinel appear to be on the way. I hope we don't lose anyone relevant to FAU sports.

You just had to know this was coming sooner or later. Almost nobody buys a paper anymore.

I echo your statements about losing someone relevant to FAU sports. I think Marcus Nelson may have covered his last FAU story but Ted Hutton's blog is booming so it wouldn't make a lot of sense to shut that down…
