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.
