I generally love change and get bored easily, and I think there are a lot of things to like about this redesign.  But generally, I'm more of a minimalist, and prefer the simple to the complicated.  It seems that the powers-that-be love it, and it sounds like there's a bunch of great things on the back-end that have improved... awesome. Anything that improves 11W overall, I'm for.  But visually, I think it's a little too busy, too cluttered.  I think the interface (front page primarily) is too image heavy for a site that is largely based on words of its contributors.  I open the front page and see Nicholas Cage first, not the article titles. I hover over the Football/Basketball dropdown, and see 80% of the screen taken up for 8 links and three large pictures.  I guess, personally, I'd like to see more emphasis on the title and text, and less on the featured image of the article, and why I LOVED the old 11W.  See Medium.com for a text-centric, but still visually appealing site for example.  

Anyway, my 2 cents, as unimportant as it is.  I'll still be here everyday regardless.

Excellent gathering with some of the best in the business.  It's so refreshing to read objective and level-headed viewpoints, my brain almost doesn't know what to do.  So much better than reading Schlabach or Pat Forde or their many troll-brethren.

I don't know, I'm rooting for Michigan, and it hurts to type that out, but I'm having a hard time disliking this team.  Maybe it's because Burke is a friend of Sullinger's and from Columbus.  I also think a win for the B1G is huge.  While I would relish the tears of a Tom Crean or Bo Ryan, I don't have that kind of disdain for Beilein.  And if they win, and all the underclassmen go pro, we can revel in their mediocrity next year.  Win/Win.

agree completely. I think it's clear that he's calling out the people that didn't believe this team was any good without him.  Incredibly humble of him to admit this team might be better without him, and speaks to this current group really playing some great team basketball.
