"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
after a long hiatus, got a chance to put one of these together this week. long story short is that my boss sits a couple desks behind me know, so its been a little complicated logistically...
in past years, when enthusiasm is down, so is interest in this feature, based on scribd's data. i think enthusaism is up a bit this year... let me know if there are any things that need to be changed, might have a chance to get to it this week.
hoping to be a little more on top of this for the next games and next season, so if you have any suggestions about other information to include, i can see what i can do.
here it is, didn't get a chance to update per the Bosch news and not sure where Glasgow fits in.
here is the miniprogram for the first game with roster, depth chart and future schedules. let me know if there are any comments or corrections to make.
so, a few years back i started putting up those miniprograms you see around here during football:
as you can see, from the chart below, readership on these has declined over the years. it does, to a degree mirror fan excitement with the first games after a Sugar Bowl win topping the list of "most reads" along with a few ND and MSU games. Games like Eastern and UMass get pretty low reads, i might not even have gotten them up on time.
anyway, this is basically a heads up that, without a real significant outcry from the board, i am going to trim down the output to just a few a year, i am thinking right now it would be ND, MSU, PSU and OSU. i will try to have the ND one up prior to the opener so that at least the UM roster and depth chart will be correct, but it may have the ND roster info on it.
if there are any comments, thoughts, improvements to be made on this, i am open to it.
so, one of the most useful times for the mini-program is at whatever this things is that happens in the spring. let me know if there are any changes to be made. the 2 deep roster comes from Touch the Banner. so, here you go:
lets see if getting this up a bit earlier gets a few more reads this week. either way, its been an honor playing with you this evening...
