    Didn't see this coming...

    Tim Griffin is no longer blogging for ESPN.com. Yeha, he wasn't perfect and had a few typos, but regardless, I was a multiple times a day reader of his blogs.

    Wonder now who ESPN gets to fill in the void. Prior to blogging, Griffin was the Big 12 beat writer for the San Antonio newspaper. I wonder if ESPN will go after a Big 12 beat writer from another paper to fill the void.

    Yeah I didn't realize he was even thinking about leaving. Hopefully the new blogger will cover more of the North....

    Says the NU fan.

    Griffin was a South schill and I think he blogged drunk, seriously.

    Re: Didn't see this coming...

    I liked him too and read his blog often. A lot of people criticize him for writing about the south a lot, but the two most successful teams in the Big 12 are in the south. Also, he gets a lot of his stories from what local news papers were writing and expands on them. It's hard to write about Iowa State football when the Register and other local outlets don't have anything to write about.

    Re: Griffin Out

    From CF I predict:

    -A month of rejoicing that the terrible Tim Griffin is gone.
    -A month of giving the new guy a chance.
    -The remainder of the guys tenure to be spent ******** about what a terrible writer he is and wishing Tim Griffin was back.

    Re: Griffin Out

    What, did he take an offer as the Main spokesman for the University of Texas?

    Get someone in there that can report on all the teams evenly.
