Hello. We're piloting a new liveblog system and want to give it a whirl before the rain of fire that is the Alabama game, so this is that. Please bear with us as we work through the usual learning curve, and ask the burningest questions you have.

Not sure if I had submitted things incorrectly, but nothing I typed made it onto the stream.  maybe its just me...maybe nothing I said was worthy.

I missed this (I was actually working - yeah, i know!), so my comment is about the transcript format.  Looks like it goes oldest at the bottom and newest at the top.  That feels awkward to me.  Is it possible to make it oldest at top and newest at the bottom?  It's difficult to scroll up to read the entries in order.  I do see how it can be easier to read this way in real time, but Cover It Live's format of refreshing and pushing everything up was almost as good, and makes for easier transcript-reading.

I connected throught the LIve chat through a Mobile Phone using Android OS 4.0 browser and my iPad-Safari browser and the comments came through as fast as my computer.  The iPad and Computer were connected through the same Wifi Home network, but the Android (HTC One) was connected through TMobile 4G.

From my point of view I don't see any reason to create an application for mobile since the streaming worked equally well through the variety of browsers I tested it through (should have stated my computer was running Chrome on MacOS).  Now it's possible people have mobile phones with inadequate browsers, but the only solution to that is buying a new phone.

I also posted comments from the iPad and my phone and the "comment awaiting moderation" tag worked for me.  My comment from mobile phone posted through as well.

I support this live chat.

Anyone catch the College Football Live Michigan segment?  First, they brought the guy on national television who voted Michigan #1 just to laugh at him.  Then, Joey fkn Galloway thinks Michigan is going to win "3 or 4" games this year?  Also Joey mentioned Ohio was most underrated team in the league...I am so ready for this season to start!!!!  12 days til people STFU
