Daily Collegian Sports Blog

Do you know that the Daily Collegian has a UMass Sports Blog ?

I spend a lot of time surfing the web for UMass football stories. Somehow, I just plain missed the Collegian's Blog. Looks like it's active and has a lot of UMass sports information.

I'll add it to the "UMass links" in the sidebar.

Awesome site Frank. Have you considered setting aside 1 day per week as an open discussion?

Yes, the last open thread day went well. No flame wars :)

I'm also thinking about moving to a private web host, which would give the option of starting a message board.

The only thing is that I spend an insane amount of time on the Blog already and moderating a board really add to the burden.

I don't think we would have any problem here if we enforced a posting policy. Boards all have a policy agreement that posters "sign" -click on - then proceed to completely ignore and flame away.

I would hope that some of your regular readers and supporters would offer to moderate a few hours each day or or a few hours each week so that it wouldn't add too your time commitment.

Weekly Test run: One day a week here on blogger do a few test runs. Initiate a couple of blank threads and 1-2 on controversial football topic(s) would be a good way to do a test run. Lock the thread at the end of the day so that they don't go on forever.

Great site. Thanks.
