Sometimes, you just have to take time

We all know sports information directors have a crazy, busy, hectic life. It doesn't matter the time of year, there is ALWAYS something to do and work on.

For me, life has become increasingly busy on Mondays. Mondays were bad to begin with thanks to weekly conference player of the week honors and awards day, but now that I'm the conference SID, it is even more so.

This is an embarrassment to the profession

Sometimes enough is enough, and today I've had ENOUGH!

One of the best parts of our role as a sports information director, in my humble opinion, is to promote the amazing student-athletes who cross our path and do what we can to get them all the recognition possible. One of the best ways to do this is the weekly conference and national player of the week awards.

However, glitches are occurring which could derail a deserving student-athlete from getting the accolades they are due.

It's the most wonderful time of the year

It's the night before the football opener, and all through the house, SIDs were scurrying and working the mouse.

Oh, how I wish I had the time right now to re-write 'The Night before Christmas' to reflect my love for working a football game. I love football Saturday. There is nothing like it. My beautiful bride says it's because I'm out of the house all day, but it simply isn't so.

#SIDChat Transcript for September 1

Another week, another #SIDChat.

This week's conversation centered around how to make the most out of our down time, how to make sure we get some time to ourselves and how to handle a reporter who 'fabricated' a story about your athletic department.
