Well, perhaps SB Nation did not exactly enroll at Harvard University. However, the Nieman Journalism Lab (a project of the Nieman Foundation at Harvard University), which is a collaborative attempt to figure out how quality journalism can survive and thrive in the Internet age, did write an article on SB Nation, titled SB Nation CEO on how we’re fans of teams, not sports, T.V. shows, not T.V., and what that means for news .
The article focuses on the interview with CEO Jim Bankoff, and what he sees as the difference between the blogs of the SB Nation network and the "typical newspaper sports section."
In a relatively quiet time for the NFL, with the biggest story in sports actually being about soccer, this might be a good time to click on the link above and check out what SB Nation really is all about.
