Jane Ruffin: Not-so-grand coverage

Regarding the coverage of Coach K’s 1,000th win: Coach Mike Krzyzewski’s grand victory was legitimate news, but have your editors lost their minds? On Jan. 26, you devoted 45 percent of your news pages (not counting ads, comics and opinion) and three of four section fronts to Krzyzewski coverage.

The News & Observer deserves a Pulitzer for uncovering the sports scandal at UNC, a scandal driven by an over-the-top emphasis on college sports. Have you learned nothing from your own reporting?
