From the Old to the Young

Sept. 14, 2013

Reading Katrina's blog yesterday reminded me of the job I had prior to coming to Florida Atlantic. My boss at Tennessee Tech, Rob Schabert, has also been in the business for a long time. I love hearing stories of how the world of sports information has changed over the years.

I can barely remember a time when internet access wasn't always within arm's reach. Katrina and Rob covered sports when releases and stats had to be typed on a keyboard and mailed to the opposing school and media outlets. Today, I'm on a bus traveling to Tampa, using a laptop, Ipad, two smartphones and a mobile hotspot. Oh how the times have changed.

Saturday night, you'll be able to keep up with the football game by watching or listening to it online, watching live stats, or by reading my tweets - instantly. I encourage you to interact with us - retweet us and ask us questions. I'll do my best to respond. After all, what we do is for our fans.

With soccer in Jacksonville and football and volleyball in Tampa, this is a great weekend for FAU Athletics to shine in the Sunshine State. Go Owls!
