*ASU COACHING JOB ON CRAIGSLIST: Good one.

The proper candidate for the job must love to vacation in Mobile, AL. Candidate should also come equipped with a catch phrase, Ex: "Feel the Freeze, Get on the Gus Bus." However, applicant's contract will immediately be terminated at any uttering of the phrase "Next Level."

Bonuses include a house, two loaned SUV's, and a head coaching offer in the SEC at the completion of the season.

*'TWO QUOTES AND A VOTE': Former Arkansas AP reporter Ron Fournier, now with National Journal, remembers Arkansas reporter Joan Duffy, who died yesterday.

Joan had a simple theory about covering the legislature. Every story required two essential elements, no more: "Two quotes and a vote." In other words, who won the fight and what did each side say about it?

Setting aside the hyperbole, Joan's point was that anything beyond the basics was a waste of good ink — and kept reporters away from friends and family.

What else?
