I guess this is goodbye, old friends

Well, sort of goodbye.

To avoid hyperbole or unnecessary rambling: I’ve signed onto 247 Sports’ new venture with Inside Indiana. I will, unfortunately, be leaving this space, which has grown rather dear to me over the last year-plus.

I signed on with Alex and Ryan in January of last year, but the truth is, much like many of you, I had been reading Inside The Hall pretty much since its inception.

To be a part of the impressive growth the site has undertaken — even if just a small part — has been a real treat, and something I’ll probably treasure forever.

I guess this isn’t quite goodbye, as I’ll still be around. In fact if anything, my responsibilities will expand to covering football as well, so you’ll be hearing more from me than surely you could ever want to.

Again, I promised I would be brief — plus I’m awful at goodbyes — so let me please just say thank you to all of you for making my time on the site as fun and as wonderful as you have. It really was a treat.

    Good luck Zach!

  • Zach, I’ve told you this already, but just wanted to say it publicly as well. Thanks for all of your great contributions over the last 15 months and best of luck with your new endeavor.

    Good luck, Zach! Your contributions to the site were top-notch. Any chance of seeing you in liveblogs once next season rolls around?

    Zach’s contributions will be missed here on ITH. Covering IU football could be viewed as form of torture but on paper this appears to be a promotion. Laurel and hearty handshake for the efforts.

  • Thanks for everything, Zach. Your contributions were always top-notch and we look forward to following your articles in Inside Indiana.

    Good luck Zach. Going to miss reading your insight on here, but change is inevitable I suppose.

    Ironically, I believe we would not be in this situation of losing Zachary Osterman had more than 11% of our current membership participated in the Inside the Hall donation drive and more than 150 of our nearly 9,000 members recruited at least one new member.

    Also, was there a rally to retain you that only mustered 13 students in attendance?

    In all seriousness though, I’ve enjoyed your articles Zach. Good luck in your future endeavors.
