A one-on-one with Hillsdale College AD Don Brubacher regarding "The Carcas Fracas"


For some unknown reason I never posted the audio of my”Carcas Fracas” interview with Hillsdale College athletic director Don Brubacher on here.

The story involving members of the Hillsdale College baseball team placing animal carcasses on the front porch of the house where a Hillsdale Collegian student newspaper editor lives, following the publication of an editorial that was highly critical of the baseball team, was picked up by hundreds of national news sources.

While the college quickly responded, with one uniform statement, the athletic department withheld comment for nearly a week before Brubacher agreed to sit down with me.

In this interview, which was done on April 14, we discussed how the college is trying to get rid of the “black eye” the whole incident causes, how the different departments dealt with it and what types of lessons come out of an experience like this.

I apologize for not linking to this a while ago when it was more relevant, but I suppose that’s what happens working 12 hour days at the sports desk. Without further adieu.

I am what you think I am — a journalist. Actually when I was hired at my current job, which by the way is Sports Editor of the Hillsdale Daily News in Hillsdale, Mich., I applied for a position titled "Wordsmith", so at my best I'll call myself a writer attempting to be a wordsmith extraordinaire.
