ElViento: Popular sports opinion website SB Nation has recently started opening up hub pages for various cities. (If you follow sports in-depth online, chances are you’ve probably read at least one or two blogs that they host.)

Unlike ESPN, they have deemed the city of Houston worthy of its own local site.

Unlike some other media entities in this city, which shall remain nameless, they didn’t hire a Longhorn to do a Cougar’s job.

That’s right,  yours truly has been hired (Yes, hired! As in, money!) to cover the Houston Cougars for the site, which was launched Wednesday night.

You can find the site at houston.sbnation.com.

In addition to myself, the site will feature the writing of (among others) Tom Martin (of Rockets blog The Dream Shake), David Coleman (of Astros blog The Crawfish Boxes) and Rivers McCown (of Texans’ Battle Red Blog).

I can’t say enough about how excited I am to be a part of this. I am (at present) the only writer whose focus will be on college athletics, and the folks at SB Nation had the good sense to have the Houston site cover UH, not UT or A&M. (I’ll also be writing up Rice when I get the chance.)

Anyway, this is the reason that my posts around here have been brief, recently. I’ve been writing for that site, which has been taking up my energies.

I don’t know what the future of the Scott &  Holman will be. It’s likely that SB Nation won’t want me to write about every little bit of Cougar info that ever comes up, so I’ll still likely post the minor stuff around here. I’d also love to bring in some other writers here to provide their own perspective on UH sports. But I encourage you all to follow me over to the SB Nation site. My Cougar coverage will be much better there than it ever was here.

That’s all for me for now. GO COOGS!!
