Yea, I dont like that
First off, thanks Shannon for such an incredible job. 247 is *already* the best. Looking forward for what's coming ahead!
I think 3B is really the best option! It still allows for insider discussion among posters, but presents the opportunity to read what the 'professionals' are saying. I would love to be able to read more articles from other reporters.
If they are going to go 247 wide no posting on opposing team's main boards, I think they should go with what BOL has in beta form, i.e. the secondary board for posters from other teams to be able to post.
I really enjoy most interactions with other team's posters and it would be a shame to take that totally away, though I understand the frustration with dealing with some 'crazies'...
Keep the feedback coming guys. Much needed.
From reading the comments and talking to our staff, I would say 3b is leading 55/45 at this stage. There are merits for both, but 3b could be the best first step for the next couple years. However, and with that said, it is important to not be short sided and thank through everything.
Thanks for your support. We will do our best.

I like 3A.

What better way to grow a the network, then to offer all the inside info across the network. Its a form of alliance marketing, and I understand the logic but the only people who win in the case of the Gamecock site is Clemson fans. Between the 4 paid full time staff members there is no shortage of information when it comes to USC sports, as far as our rivals go we would gain little to nothing. So an easy way to gain new Clemson fans is to offer access to our inside info as well as theirs. I am sure there are other rivals very similar, just guessing but GA Tech probably is much smaller than UGA network.
Also the need to grow the network is also out there, currently you have AZ, not ASU, Oregon, but not Oregon State, WASU, but not Washington. I am sure there are plenty more, but the point being to be a complete network, you need to fill the voids.
The other thing I see is that in the future they could setup a higher level of membership that would be exclusive, but may cost more. Right now 10 bucks a month is the standard in the industry, and finding a way to raise prices is very difficult. So one way to do that would be to introduce an entry level like the current environment, and then eventually introduce a new exclusive level for an additional fee.
Overall it is a bold move
I'd like everything in 3D please.
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
tRCMB (no "N" Kitemac) version of the post is only at -16. That's positive by RCMB standards.

3B I'd say is best.
Keeps conversations among fans if need be, but gives the ability to read all major writers stuff. Best of both worlds IMO.
Down to -23 .
assistant coach recruiting ranking is an AWESOME idea.
the crystall ball is a cool idea but i think it would probably create a lot of unwanted controversy if this a year round type thing. maybe if there was a set time frame (like end of the regular season up until NSD) for the crystal ball.
the best idea of the four listed is the position specific ratings breakdown. that's just top notch.
