    It's one of the world's worst kept secrets that I'm personally involved, so what the hell. Pretty exciting news in my corner of this universe today. From the press release:

    CBSSports.com today announced the hiring of three award-winning writers who will cover college basketball and college football for the site. Tony Barnhart and Brett McMurphy will cover college football and Jeff Goodman will report on college basketball for CBSSports.com.

    Barnhart has been writing for the site for a few weeks; McMurphy starts next week. Goodman in June.

    Nice to see Brett land on his feet.

    Goodman and Parrish together should be dynamic. Best news-breaking duo in hoops? Certainly better than the four letter network's trio.

    How did you convince them to move to St. Francisville? [/oldboardmeme]

    No question that Goodman and Parrish are better at breaking news than the four-letter network. Combined they're going to be scary. Look for a lot more "ESPN has learned ..." in the future.

    Without making a planned effort to do so, I find that I'm going to CBSSports.com and SI.com way more often than I go to ESPN.com.

    Usually the only time I go to ESPN.com is if someone from here links to something, like a Wright Thompson feature or maybe a Reilly column.

    Any chance they'll do anything with college pucks?

    Goodman has been kicking butt.

    Do any national outlets outside of sites like USCHO/InsideCollegeHockey/A few smaller sites actually cover the sport?

    Does ESPNU.com count? ESPN doesn't seem to invest much money or effort in that site, but college hockey/lacrosse/baseball are big enough in some parts of the country I think a site that really covers all college sports hard could do well.

    Enough of the thread jack though, CBS has got a good lineup going. It might become my go-to.

    CBScollegesports, the former CSTV, broadcasts a ton of college puck. Some online presence to promote that isn't completely outside the realm of logic.
