This man turned in some great work and he really did a super job on college football/basketball recruiting on his blog at www.charlotteobserver.com. I just heard him late last week on the Prime Time with the Pack Man Show out of Charlotte when Mark Packer had him on and Ric Flair stopped by for a visit….

Stan “The Man” is gone and someone else will have to carry on, to carry on…..

Stan Olson speaking:

Good afternoon and goodbye.

This is my last post, because of staff reductions at The Observer.

I think I’ll miss the Tar Heels fans the most—while I criticized their class, in-state and out, they were right that Butch Davis would finish strong—he and his staff are killing it today, and I’d like to be available for my verbal whipping.

    The publishers wonder why no readership and why circulation declines, loosing Stan “the man” is an insult to us the subscribers on this newspaper.
