I didn't want to bring this up, but the reason that Andy is in Disney World with his family instead of making his way to East Lansing this week is because you never became a 12th Warrior.
Shoot. We actually have koozies. We have to get them listed. Keep an eye out in the next couple of days.
Oh, and with regards to Yeti, we have some for staff, but they're too expensive at cost to resell. Basically, we would have to charge $50 per YETI rambler (30oz) and I don't know if there's anyone who will pay that price.
Some people thought the same thing when Alex left, too. We work way too hard and have a high standard of excellence around here. We're much, much bigger than any single person and that's what makes us great (although, we do have a solid roster of all-stars).
Thanks. He was great. We actually moved to wrap up the interview on our end because we didn't want to eat up too much of his time and I got the impression he'd talk to us all afternoon if we wanted to.
No need to comment in this case. Just submit an entry to the group.
You are preaching to the choir. I've long believed that social media was going to destroy the model behind these types of pay sites and I still do. Stuff is just too immediate now in the sense that it's out there as soon as it's published. There's also something to be said for our competition checking 11W out more than their own sites. The amount of grievances we receive is insane. It's almost as if they dedicated as much time to their own shop, they'd be in a better place.
Unfortunately, these are people we have to see at “work,” though, so it's tough to roll in Marcus Hall style.
Sorry. It's nothing personal and I know I appreciate what your'e doing to collect recruiting information. We're just in a tough spot when sites complain.
I'll try to address some of the concerns voiced here.
Are mods trying to: protect premium content from other sites? or avoid mentioning of competitor sites?
Kind of, and no. If you've been around for even a few days you should know we're not afraid to mention or link to competitor sites. Other places play that paranoia game, but we don't. What happened here is that although he didn't copy and paste the entirety of the premium post from Rivals, he did give away all of the lucky charms from it, which tends to make other sites mad.
11W is trying to justify paying a recruiting writer when it's not really needed when threads like this exist.
This is ridiculous. See above and try to have facts present when you sling allegations like this.
is that Spooner citing their material is good for the premium pay sites. In the modern social media era, you want people publicizing your stuff.
Maybe some sites embrace that. I know we appreciate being cited. But when you're a pay site, that is your life blood. You care very little about citations and very much about paying subscribers.
The bottom line is that when other sites complain about this stuff, we typically remove it. We're in a tough spot. There's no conspiracy theory here with regards to us not wanting to cite or justifying our own stuff.
As always, blame the lawyers.
I'm trying to figure out who this is directed at.
Oh, I know. I was at Tressel's Sugar Bowl win over Arkansas.
But, when it comes to counting these streaks and records, neither the NCAA nor Ohio State acknowledge that win in 2010.
Ohio State forfeited its 37-7 win in 2010 due to NCAA violations, or that streak would stretch seven games.
Not in the eyes of the NCAA.
I love how the Sullinger you don't expect is the one who makes this list.
Imagine we'll do something.
Is that auto-play ad coming with sound. There will be some auto-play ads, but they should be muted.
