Some nice things to say about CFN

Be firm with one hand, gentle with the other.  Or something like that.

We don't mean to take shots at the CFN boys.  For a long time they've really been a bright spot on the college football internet landscape.  Having run this website/blog for several months now, I can tell you it is no small task to do what they do at CollegeFootballNews.  Obviously it's a passion of theirs, but to make a website that heavy on content requires a little madness too.  We respect that.

A lot.

Our disagreements are ones of opinion and we approach it as such.  No hard feelings are meant.  But we do take college football seriously over here and have it as part of our mission to change the dialogue some, because right now there are too many oddball opinions emanating from the guys on TV, radio, print and the internet and at some point it might be nice to counter some of the more egregious examples of opinionmakers gone bad.

We are not immune, here at Resource.  We're continually fleshing out out theories and models and adapting to the reality on the field.  But that in and of itself is something we're not sure we see much of from many of the pundits out there, and hopefully a few gentle nudges here or there can get a few more of the opinionmakers out there to be a little more realistic and fair.

In the end, what they say, matters.  When people say the polls are flawed, chances are they're flawed because the voters are too scared to vote against the grain, and accepted opinion.  But when common opinion is wrong, isn't there some kind of obligation to push back and make things right?  We here at Resource think so.

Please don't interpret this to mean we think the CFN guys are all wrong.  Far from the truth.  Quite often we read their pieces and are immensely satisfied with some of the opinions and thought processs revealed.  We're all fans, in the end, and we all love the game.

I have always admired you guys that can write all about college or pro football and nothing else, and do it in such detail.

As an example, I am a huge Notre Dame fan, and the guys at 'Blue Gray Sky' write these long detailed articles about the Irish, I don't know where they find the time to dig up all of the information.

so far I have enjoyed your postings.

John,

Thanks for the nice words. You are part of a fantastic team blog, perhaps the most comprehensive and impressive one I've seen so far.

I am not part of the 'Blue Gray Sky' blog...I didn't mean to insinuate that I was.
