It was a small Thanksgiving crowd for #SIDChat, but there was plenty of good discussion.

Topics for the day included revoking credentials, dealing with the media and more.

Spent the bulk of this week's #SIDChat discussing social media policies and strategies.

Also, we spent time talking about trying to recover from crossover season.

I love my job, but ...

I'm not going to lie: I love my job.

There isn't anything I'd rather be doing professionally than being a sports information director. (OK, that's a lie. I'd love to be a pro athlete, but well, that ship sailed long before I ever reached the dock.)

Getting to work in athletics is a blast. Ninety-nine times out of 100 this job doesn't feel like a job. No two days ever are the same, and there's always something new happening.

Yet, there is one thing I am not a fan of, and I'm going through it right now.

You know it's crossover season when ...

It's the most _________ time of the year.

Yes, it's crossover season, and I will let you fill in the blank however you feel. It's absolutely the craziest, maddening, head-spinning, sleep-depriving time of the year.

#SIDChat Transcript for November 3

Like an oasis in the middle of a desert, this week's #SIDChat was a welcomed respite from crossover season.

Had good discussions on how to measure the impact of game notes, votes, programs and more; how to handle the passing of a student-athlete; prioritizing during crossover season and horror stories from learning new things.
