Its the end of 2011. As you saw in the year end piece, the year saw a lot of changes in college sports coverage. Some positive, some negative. 2012, hopefully, will be a quieter year. Yes there will be some alterations to the SEC contract and those probably will come out in the spring. Big East negotiations will start towards the end of the year and who knows what type of market they'll find out there for their rights. Whatever formation MWCUSA takes. To AQ or not to AQ. That is the question.
I am very appreciative of those who emailed or commented re: the site. I am trying to find a happy medium with the TV site & blog going forward. Have not yet found it. Haven't started programming towards an updated site and don't intend to for a few weeks. Suppose I'm thankful that most conferences haven't figured out how to schedule themselves for 2012. Heck, West Virginia's home for 2012-13 will likely be decided in the court system and one of those cases won't be heard until near the end of the athletic calendar year in June.
I do software development for eight hours a day. To come home and do more doesn't strike me as something I desire to do right now. To be quite honest with you: I would not expect a football schedule listing at my site for 2012 until at least April. I will keep track of it as much as possible, but I make no guarantees beyond that. The twitter and facebook pages remain active, but I've turned off being notified when a post/comment hits the account, so unless I'm looking at the site, don't expect a quick answer.
I'm going to go spin a few records now. Vinyl has made a comeback, after cassette, 8 track, CD, DVD-Audio, SACD, DualDisc, digital download and others tried to make it irrelevant. Sound quality still matters, and so does being unable to skip a track.
Thanks. Happy New Year.
