SITE NEWS: In the wake of ridding the site of the nightly dose of good looking ladies, I have some (bad?) news to report. The effect on the blog has not been great, reducing my daily site traffic by approximately 20% to 30%. Not only were those posts visited frequently on a daily basis, but deleting the backlog of those posts takes away a huge chunk of material that used to show up on Google image and content searches. Naturally, 20% fewer visits means about 20% less in ad revenue. There’s not much that can be done – 80% of what I used to make is better than the 0% I would get from AdSense if they cut me out completely – but it’s still a hit to the bottom line.

“They’ve known that I have given everything that I had to this program, and put everything I had into this past season,” Higdon said. “I’ve done everything they could ask of me, plus more.
I don’t agree with that at all. They literally asked him to play in the Peach Bowl – which he acknowledges – and he didn’t do it.
