Welcome to the Burnout.


It's been a while since I posted anything on here. It's mostly because of burnout.

When I started this blog, I never intended it to be so college football-centric. It just sort of happened that way. It was back in the days of Tim Tebow at Florida, Lane Kiffin at Tennessee, and Ricky Stanzi at Iowa. The landscape of college football was changing, and schools switching conferences and rumors of schools switching conferences were bountiful founts of content.

What happened? Events like the scandals at Penn State and Baylor, for one thing. I found it hard to really cover them without repeating what everybody else said, or going into the overreactive mode of calling for extreme measures like the NCAA death penalty just for clickbait.

That was combined with personal and medical issues that for now are going to stay personal. that's all I really want to say there.

Im at a point where I want to post more here, but I'm not completely sure where it will go. I may stick with college football, but delve into other areas, like music or comics or other areas of interest. I had been trying that before the burnout happened.

So if you were wondering why there hasn't been anything new here in a month or so, that's why. I hope to have more stuff up soon.
