Looking for me?

Sorry I haven't blogged for a couple of weeks, but things are changing, and change was announced in Wednesday's Star.

For those used to reading me on the Auburn Beat blog, I have a new role with The Star as its sports columnist. I'll have a new blog soon.

My bosses are working out details to get the beat covered, and I expect there'll be news soon.

I've covered the Auburn beat for almost 12 years. It's been interesting (sometimes very interesting) and fun, and I've enjoyed folks I've come to know through that job, especially my colleagues on the beat, the sports info crew and readers who have corresponded with me.

I know people who read an Auburn Beat blog do so because of the school and not the writer, but I hope all take time to read my new blog. Feel free to add your opinions to mine, and I'll gladly respond.

It's been my career goal to be a columnist, and changing times in our business have brought about that opportunity. I'm excited and naturally a little scared.

I certainly intend to take to my new role the same sense of fairness and responsibility with which I've always tried to do my job. Opinions are just that, but I endeavor to get it right first.

As always, you can contact me at or 256-235-3576. Thanks, and blog you soon.
