I'm vacationing this week.
But I'm not really taking a vacation.
It's just that CBS is kind enough to give me all these vacation days that must be used at some point, and the middle of June seems like a pretty good point to use a few. I trust my new colleague Jeff Goodman will keep you occupied in my absence. I'll return next Monday in advance of my trip to New York for our NBA Draft coverage, and when I return -- and this is really what I wanted to tell you -- I won't be using this blog anymore. Rather, I'll be joining Goodman, Matt Norlander and Jeff Borzello in the CBSSports.com Eye on College Basketball Blog.
Goodman and I spent some time with the bosses last week down in Florida and we decided we care less about highlighting ourselves individually than we do about putting all of our best resources on college basketball in one, easy-to-find location. We want to complement each other and try to make the Eye on College Basketball Blog the nation's best place to read about the sport. So starting next Monday we'll be writing columns separately (obviously) but blogging in the same place -- a place that will be redesigned in the coming weeks to highlight our arrival because one of my demands was that my arrival be highlighted.
(I'm shallow like that.)
What you'll find going forward is that I'll do what I do (have opinions on stuff) and Goodman will do what he does (provide countless nuggets of information and tell you about every transfer from Texas to Towson). What you'll also find -- if you haven't already -- is that Norlander is the kind of hustler every blog needs to ensure nothing relevant gets missed, and that Borzello is a must-follow on recruiting. Together, we hope we'll be able to produce a nice place for all college basketball fans. We'll have links and pictures and videos and podcasts. We'll have regular features and spontaneous posts. We'll also have bumps in the road, so to speak, but we'll get it all straight in time, I'm certain.
So go ahead and bookmark this link when you get a chance.
I'll meet you there next Monday.
I'm taking off this week/killing this blog
