Well shit. PAPN is/was the only CFB podcast I tolerate these days. Will miss the current iteration.
I mean, he’s gotta be going to the The Athletic, right?
Probably going to the Athletic
Vegas is putting the odds at -10000
Posted in the podcast thread before I saw this.
This sucks. This was the best cfb podcast.
Have to imagine Bill will do another podcast. At least I hope so.
Damn. PAPN was my favorite cfb podcast.
Interested to see who they get to replace Bill on it.
that makes me really sad
Dammit, I don't want to lose his free 130 team preview or the podcast with him and Godfrey.
its definitely the Athletic with all of their new podcasts
Mandel referenced Connelly’s work earlier this week in a mailbag he did, and considering the Athletic is in another hiring blitz, it makes sense to get someone who could open up a whole new stream of subscribers.
I’ll be bummed if he ends up anywhere else.
The athletic is so great.
i was pessimistic that a pay subscription service would work with so much free content out there but they seem to have timed it perfectly when that free content quality was largely awful and they did a great job hiring really really well
I'm begrudgingly going to pay for it soon I suspect
I too want Bill at the Athletic, but Godfrey saying its not.
Other than ESPN, which other media outlets would be this protectionist about Bill's podcasting services.
Barstool? They are very weak on CFB
He's joining Kige Ramsey over at Youtube Sports
i cant imagine a worse fit in the entire universe than connelly at barstool
What about a your wiener in a vagina?
I saw that. I also wouldn’t put it past Godfrey to lie in plain sight.
Among other reasons, think Bill is too highbrow for Barstool’s audience.
So is he going to finish his previews or those going with him?
He makes it seem like tomorrow will be the final one. Fucking Kansas.
Prolly headed to write for espn the magazine.
I'm sorry but why would he leave SBN for The athletic. It has to be a bigger job. Wouldn't make sense for a lateral move
Sucks if your team didn't get one.
I bet he’s making 50k at most at SBN. If he went to the Athletic, I bet he gets close to 70. Everything I’ve read is the Athletic is very competitive with pay.
Saving the best for last!
Menace2Society Podcast feat. Bill Connelly
Im thinking 538 but this sucks balls
wonder if a team hired him? have college programs started hiring analytics guys?
Godfrey said everyone would be hearing from Bill soon, just at another outfit in the same space.
It's totally worth it. And given all the promos they run, you really never gave to pay full price for it, at least for the first year
Athletic is definitely a bigger job than sbn. And I'd imagine he'd be getting a promotion in title and pay raise, if he's going to the athletic.
welp, it is ESPN. Hope they utilize him properly and that he does well on TV.
Good for him
ESPN grabbing him and getting S&P+ to boot is smart as hell.
Id think S&P+ is going to follow BillC wherever he goes
Yeah, it belongs to him
Of course, it’s his. But it’s nice for ESPN to have that under their umbrella while he’s there given how badly their metrics suck. I phrased my initial statement horribly.
Good move by him. Pay has to be a huge upgrade.
Good for him. Hate the move. Can’t stand the ESPN website or app. Or really anything On ESPN other than the games and game day.
Because the rest of Vox (SBN, Eater, Curbed, etc) had all gone downhill to useless content. It can't be lucrative being the one outlier.
The Athletic is awesome. Basically the Sports Illustrated of 50 years ago. Well worth the subscription. That's not lateral from SBN.
