All is quiet on the Western Front.

Now that Calvin Watkins is back from covering the Vince Young love fest for the Morning News, maybe he can drag more than 125 words out of SMU athletic director search. I kid, I kid. I think Calvin does a great job covering SMU. And I think the SMU fan underappreciates him.

Let's assume that we are in the middle of the process. When would SMU announce a hire? Not today and not tomorrow and not over the weekend. The NCAA tournament drowns everything else out, particularly with Texas still in it. So that leaves you with window of Monday through Thursday of next week to announce anything, assuming SMU were going to. That, or you have to wait until Tuesday, April 4th, or later, when the tournament concludes.
