    It's a newspaper in the digital age. It's like having a monopoly on mud pies.

    UL Football Re: Capital City Press buys LSN papers

    IMO the biggest point of newspaper coverage was recruiting interest. That was the 20th century. In the latter half of the 20th century the internet took over along with television for recruiting interest. Today it is the smart phone, tweet, face book, and such. Hardly any recruit of note spends any time reading a printed newspaper unless HIS name is a part of an article, even they they probably saw it first on the smart phone.

    In fact it hardly matters at all what the TP has to say about UL, and that is almost noting ever.
