You've probably noticed that I've been writing more and more on college athletics in general and college football in particular. There's an app a reason for that. I have been reading up on the professional economic literature on college sports for a big project that I am working on. Whenever I start a new project, I dive into the professional literature. That's pretty standard in any field. Because I am not as familiar with the literature on college sports as I am with other papers in sports economics, I have had to do a bit more diving. I've also started writing on the subject.
I'll still be blogging on all the fun topics brought to you by the world of economics, but if you see me blogging sporadically and blogging a bit more on college football or college sports, it's not that I've given up on the rest of the science. I've just immersed myself in one tiny little part of the vast Oceania Economica and am thinking about it a lot. Thanks for bearing with me and, especially, for taking the time to read my blog.
By the way, Jason Whitlock's tweet about the need for a sturdy hotseat to hold Kansas' Mark Mangino and Notre Dame's Charlie Weis was pretty ripe. My cheap shot tweet was that Kansas can't throw Mangino under a bus because he wouldn't fit. They'd need at least a monster truck.
