  • Did anyone notice

    Sean Keeler was dumped from the DSM Rag, replaced by Marc Hansen? Does this have any effects (positive/negative) on coverage of UNI sports in the paper?

    I know that Andrew Lodge was/is the primary beat writer for UNI basketball. Does anything else get shuffled around?

    That's too bad about Sean Keeler. I thought he did a great job covering UNI athletics. He'll be missed.

      Hanson in his first stint in sports tended to do Hawk columns and high school fluff pieces. Chances are good we won't see much of him up here...

        I doubt that Logue will be moved around but we'll see.

          Maybe the Courier can hire Keeler for UNI and move Beaton to ISU.

            I never really enjoyed Keelers columns on UNI (but at least there were columns). To me he didn't really like UNI, he always seemed to be on the verge of calling UNI dirty. Every article was: they play ugly but they are winning some games so I have to cover them.
            I think Hansen is a much better writer. He probably did cover Iowa quite a bit, but I think UNI and Iowa's programs are in very different places, compared to when he was doing sports last.

                Why did they call it the Peach?
                The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice, clouds and thick darkness surround Him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. Fire goes before Him, and consumes his foes on every side; His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles; the mountains melt like wax before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim His righteousness and all peoples will see His glory.

                  It was called the Big Peach and it was printed on peach colored paper.

                      Was it just about basketball? Was it a peach basket reference? I have no idea.

                        The Big Peach was the peach colored (paper) sports section - specifically on Sunday if I recall. Could be wrong about exclusive to Sunday.

                        It was used before Gannet purchased the DSM Rag. Originally the peach colored paper was cheaper than white newsprint. So they did some creative marketing naming it the Peach, and in effect, made you feels special about buying a cheaper product.

                            The Big Peach was sports back when the Register actually did a good job of covering sports statewide.
