already. Had it already started with men's basketball? It's been true of the hockey team since the 1980s anyway. John Fineran, who freelances, was at the recent Frozen Fours, but I don't believe the paper sent anyone to cover first or second round NCAA hockey games.

That paper sadly, at least in its print version, has to be on its last legs. Half the football games do not have coverage in the Sunday paper due to the fact the papers are no longer printed anywhere near South Bend and the press time comes when the games are in the third quarter.
