I appreciate the response, Livn4life, but I'm not sure how differently that specific situation could have been handled. Dooley said Shaw was going to split snaps in the game with a younger player. I'm not sure how that could be interpreted any differently, to be honest with you.

I definitely make mistakes, and I own up to them every time, but I'm not sure that was one of them.

Thanks for the response, though. And most importantly, thanks for reading.

Perhaps you could re-read that sentence.

It says "rising senior" Nick Stephens, not "rising star Nick Stephens."

Rising senior means he would have been a senior in the fall. Our paper doesn't refer to someone by their fall class during spring practice.

For instance, Janzen Jackson isn't "sophomore Janzen Jackson" yet. He's "rising sophomore Janzen Jackson."

"Athletes" in recruiting are guys without reasonably defined positions.

UT listed Fugate and Dixon as "athletes," but I think it's pretty clear Fugate will be a fullback and Dixon will be a DB, so I put them in those categories.

Hey Moonpie,

As journalists, it is my policy to publish precise quotes. Some do this, and some don't, but I believe in taking people completely in context.

Hope this helps.

Chelsea and Liverpool have nothing (other than several points in the standings) on the surging Arsenal Gunners.
