With Goldberg, and now Phillip, working AuburnTigers.com, what direction does that mean the University is taking with sports information dissemination? Although independently owned it is Auburn's official site. Is Auburn trying to control the message more? Is it part of the ESPN move? Are other schools doing this? Just wondering?
Lots of other schools are doing it - about two dozen so far. Neither I nor Charles work for the sports information department or answer to anyone in the sports information department. We are both independent contractors covering Auburn as we would for any other entity. No one has the ability to tell me what to write about anything. I am no PR guy. Florida has two veteran guys that do this. Mississippi State just hired somebody. Not sure about anybody else in the SEC, but you are going to see it more and more. NFL teams have done this for years. Every NFL team has at least one beat writer that works for the team web site.
