    Goodbye for now

    So I picked up a part time job until November so that we could pay down some bills and put some money away for maternity leave for my wife. What was going to be 20 extra hours a week is turning into me basically having two full time jobs, both are right at an hour drive from home on way. In order to make time for my family I'm going to have to eliminate some time consuming activities.

    Anyway until November I don't think I'm going to be around much on here. (We will see how much will power I have.) I'm going to miss the summer "why no thermometer" and "______ not happy with ____ conference" threads; the August speculation on what starters will lose their position to what true freshman; the bipolar threads (half the board declaring 10 win seasons and half declaring 2) after our first game; but I think I'm going to miss most the excitement on this board after every big win.

    See you again in November and I hope to miss a lot of big wins by then....Go Cyclones!
