â†µThis whole thing started back in 2007 under the guidance of Chris Mottram, who departed for SB Nation just over a year ago. I've had the pleasure of steering the ship for the period of time since his departure. Just as Mottram had the chance to work with talented people like Dan Shanoff, Brian Powell, Nathaniel Friedman (aka Bethlehem Shoals), Tom Ziller, Will Brinson, Eric McErlain and Dave Larzelere, I had my own roster of all-stars with Dan Levy, Michael Tunison, Andy Hutchins, LSUFreek, Brian Cook and Eric Freeman. I still feel very good about a lot of our work being entertaining and interesting to read. We had coverage at multiple Super Bowls, All-Star Games and the Final Four. We tried to bring a unique perspective to those events. â†µâ†µ
â†µWe will not disappear into the background of the web. Everyone will continue to do their thing, just in other places. â†µ
â†µTwo of our own -- Michael Tunison and Andy Hutchins will be joining some of our old friends at SB Nation. In addition, the archive for TSB will migrate over to SB Nation and find a new home there soon as part of an acquisition. â†µâ†µ
â†µHutchins, the young scholar he is, will continue to shoehorn writing responsibilities into his undergrad life at Florida. In addition to his responsibilities at SB Nation, he maintains a music blog, The Rockabye Review. Follow him on Twitter. â†µâ†µ
â†µAs for me, I'll continue on with a new role at SportingNews.com in the social media world. You thought I was obnoxious on Twitter before? Just wait. (Kidding! Sort of.) Follow me there. You can also add me on Facebook here. â†µâ†µ
â†µTo those who read us frequently, I'd like to give my heartfelt thanks. â†µâ†µ
â†µI hope readers continue to support those in the burgeoning blog world that do good work. Vote with your eyeballs and support quality content. See you around the internets. â†µâ†µ
