Moving on

Since I already got a couple of comments about it this morning, I guess now's as good a time as any to say farewell. Today's my last day covering Auburn. I accepted a job as sports editor of the Athens Banner-Herald and will start there on Friday. I'm a bit nervous about moving into a management position, but it will be beneficial for me professionally and financially. Probably personally, as well, because I felt like I'd been in a bit of a rut lately.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who sent encouraging e-mails and posted comments. The vast majority of folks have been excessively nice to me and I enjoyed interacting with most of you, as well as the kids on the football team. I think they're going to be very good this season.

If you're ever so inclined, you can catch me at the Banner-Herald's Web site in the future. I'm sure I'll be doing some form of a blog at onlineathens.com with general musings. Would love to hear from you.

Thanks again for reading.

Hate to see you go so soon. I've enjoyed your thorough blog. The best one out there since Philip Marshall's for sure.

Justin Hall said...

will you be doing a blog for UGA again?

David Ching said...

in some capacity, justin, although not the way i did before. i won't be at Butts-Mehre for post-practice stuff every day anymore.

Best to you. Your reports on the Tigers will be sorely missed. You always seemed to be the most informed. I know you do well at your new position. War Eagle!

Chingy...(as JGT would say) you have one of the most informative blogs out there. Between you and JGT, I felt like an insider! Congrats on the new gig and dont take any crap from them silver britches! :)

I'm sorry to see you go, you always had the most informative blog, but I hope you enjoy the new job. For some reason I now have the jefferson's theme song stuck in my head "movin' on up..."

way to go.

Now you can write about Georgia losing to LSU instead of Auburn losing to LSU.

whhheeeeeeeee!

dang it. I just found your blog a few weeks ago and got hooked. Now, I've got to find a new place to get my Tiger fix.
It ain't easy up in Nashville and your blog reports from practice were superb.

Congrats on your new position and don't forget about the readers up in your fancy wall-to-wall-carpet management office.

...back to Al.com, I guess.

Good luck. I enjoyed your stuff.

I'll be in Athens this weekend (my fiance's a dawg). If I see you out, there's a beer on me.

Good luck with them Dawgs....you did a great job while you were here. WDE

So can anyone recommend a good AU blog out there? I read Philip Marshall's until it went to the pay site, and I have been enjoying this one the most this year. I read the ones remaining at AL.com, but they are just alright. Any recommendations?

Auburn Tiger info said...

I should have mentioned this before. This address will be back up and running with someone else supplying the content once they hire my replacement. I know my former bosses are hoping to get it all squared away soon. But there should only be a little while that there isn't content on here, so don't remove it from your bookmarks just yet.

Welcome back!!

Go Dawgs!

Trey said...

yes sir!
sad for you auburn fans, Ching's blog is the best, but we Dawgs are glad to have him back!
