It seems like an odd time to do so, but we’re going to be putting HeismanPundit.com on hiatus for a few months.
That’s because the Heisman Trust itself has called and I’ve agreed to begin providing content for Heisman.com, the trophy’s official site. It’s an opportunity for me to become even more closely-associated with an award that’s been an integral part of my life these past 12 years.
Since I’ll be working directly for the Heisman Trust, it becomes a bit of a conflict of interest on my part to be commenting on the merits of the various candidates. Unfortunately, that means my straw poll will have to be set aside for now, as well as my ongoing public analysis of the race.
Luckily, there is no shortage of quality Heisman discussion out there, so I look forward to seeing what others have to say about the very interesting competition that is taking place this fall. On the other hand, if you remain intrigued by the Heisman and are a fan of its tradition, I hope you stop by Heisman.com to see what we have to offer. My goal is to make the official site a vital resource for those who follow the race for the most prestigious trophy in sports.
Much gratitude is due to all those who’ve helped support this site over the years and to those who gave me an outlet elsewhere to air my opinions on this subject. We’re going to see how it goes with the Heisman for now, but it could be that I return here in a few months to continue the discussion. One never knows.
In the meantime, I’ll see you at Heisman.com later this week. Be sure to bookmark it. I hope you enjoy.
