Will's World:Thanks For The Ride

A little over six years ago, I had a tough decision to make. I was writing for accnation.com, and the site was going away. I wasn't really sure if I wanted to continue writing or not. I had been writing for ACC Nation for a year, and I enjoyed it. But was I going to have another platform to write? Enter Jon Pence, the brains of this site, who e-mailed me, inviting me to write for his site. I had never even heard of the site before he mentioned it to me. After looking over the site, I decided I would come over here and make this my home.

Over these past six years, I've seen this site grow by leaps and bounds. There are many great things about this site that are very useful while tracking basketball games (especially the live stats and the game sim, which we all know is the know all end all of college basketball). This site has built quite the following on Twitter because of it. I have been along for the ride, occasionally posing football rankings, predictions, and opinions on the world of ACC sports. One of my favorite pieces I ever wrote for this site was one I wrote in early 2012, when I broke down why Mike Scott, rather than Tyler Zeller, should have been ACC Player of the Year. It was undoubtedly the best thing I have written to this point.

Unfortunately, the time has come for me to go. I, among a couple of other people, will be bringing ACC Nation back after a long hiatus. The decision to leave this site was tough, but one that I felt was right for me at the current time. I have absolutely enjoyed writing here for the last six years. Jon has been nothing but great to me the entire time. I have never met him, as we live over 1000 miles apart from each other, but in our dealings online, I have nothing but great things to say about him. He is a first class person who has done an excellent job at building this site from scratch. And he will continue to do a great job with this site. 

I want to thank all of you for reading my work, and interacting with me here, or via twitter. I really enjoy the interaction, both positive and negative, and I hope you all continue do so. And most importantly, I want to thank Jon for the opportunity to write about whatever I want to over the last six years. I appreciate it a lot.


Thanks and #goacc
