Standing up to the J.C. Romero decision instead of falling for his story of innocence.

Dan Shaughnessy, Boston Globe
I'm not really a Shaughnessy fan but I like the approach he took to the Jeff Jagodzinski firing as BC's football coach. We're too used to coaches and players bailing out of or renegotiating contracts to realize that that is exactly what they are - contracts.

Ben Tysiac, Charlotte Observer
This story was all right, but it could have been great if it had a quotation from Stephen Curry, since he is the subject of the story. Plus it cited Billy Packer as some sort of college basketball expert, which is like saying Strom Thurmond is an expert on equality.
