This is the editor of NationalChamps.net finally talking
to you. Sorry it has taken so long, but the past few months
have been trying. Our fall team previews are all out, and
it is time for the fun to begin. We strive for a superior
product in this competitive world, and we hope our previews
reflect that creed.
fourth straight year, we project our number of site visitors
will more than double - going over 4 million by year's end.
We can only thank you for continuing to make NationalChamps.net
the strong, ever-growing site we have become. Our recognition
in Sports Illustrated and on ESPN.com is only
earned through the grassroots support we have built and strive
to retain. And realizing how important our visitors are is
still our prime directive in supplying all of our college
football products. We remain hungry to continually and dynamically
develop the perfect college football web site.
Accordingly, for a second straight year, NationalChamps.net
will bring you weekly game previews supplied by our best
writers. Realize that we utilize core college football as
our journalistic foundation - we would rather have dedicated
college football followers apply fingers-to-keyboard rather
than over-burdened professionals. Sure, we have to do this
with our budgetary restrictions. But, upon seeing our keen
depth of the game, you will hopefully agree we know college
football week-in, week-out, during season, too. We know our
previews are information no real fan should be without as
the action happens. We again follow select contests with offensive-versus-defensive
breakdowns that give you what you need to know for every game
dimension. This is stuff you usually have to wait for television
experts to disseminate, but it's only a click away as you
check our previews for those great insights, too.
become a must for any serious fan - most now know, we hip
you more than we hype you.
campaign, my own weekly column will feature a focus on both
sideline insights concerning many of the games' finer points
and funky observations that just need pointing out. Last year's
Media Scope column was somewhat labor-intensive, so
I have streamlined my approach for needed reasons and feel
the results improve vastly. Football Fodder will be
published as an overview of sorts that will assuredly find
some football factoids you somehow missed. E-mail me a favorite
moment of your own - even I know I can't see it all. This
column will try to keep it all in perspective.
this year's wide open slew of great match-ups, enjoy college
football and keep NationalChamps.net there with you
the whole way. As always, let us know how we are doing, and
what we could be doing to make ourselves the best overall
college football web site there is. We hope you appreciate
all our hard work.
can't wait to see you out at our Tailgate Extravaganza
October 11th in Pittsburgh, when the Panthers host Notre
Dames' Fighting Irish. Enjoy free food and drink with us as
you meet many of the NationalChamps.net personalities,
including myself, when we celebrate on this pinnacle of college
football Saturdays. We will have our satellite dish for maximum
viewing ability of all the day's great tilts, so you won't
miss a thing. We know how to party.
see us then, and, as always, stick with us here, too, for
all your college football needs.
appreciate you continued patronage.
