    They should try updating it more often too. Mike Bohn was still listed as AD until a week or so ago

    I was looking at some numbers the neulion deal is not a bad one at all, CU even gets a cut of the impressions sites like us and The Ralphie report show when our video players run PAC/CU highlights.

    Anybody else have trouble with the neulion video player? A lot of buffering, and I'm lucky if it fights it's way through it so I don't have to restart.

    I haven't had any more issues with it than I do with Youtube and buffering; are you on a slow connection?

    1000 times, yes. Youtube is infinitely better.

    Possibly, the infrastructure in Mississippi can be suspect to say the least. But other players work fine usually. Sometimes neulion works fine too, I'd say about half the time.

    Me too. Using the connection at work which is not slow. I could only get videos to work on the Buffvision youtube channel.

    I get problems at work (****** connection) and at home (good connection, but I'm using a mac pro). Dunno, drives me nuts.

    I find the scrolling picture format of finding articles to be very frustrating. I was hoping that was going to change with this new version.

    In total I think the site is okay. My main complaint is that it is too busy. There is so much on the home page I don't really want to focus on any of it.

    Going to be a lot of mix and match I hear. No longer just using the black helmets for special games.

    you should see the economics behind it, it gets pretty compelling pretty quickly for CU and the Pac12.

    I have chrome, this is what I see (I think it looks ok, even if it is obviously unfinished):

    Think my anti-advertising plugins aren't helping. still, that's some bad design if the ads are that central to the look.

    I think they said that they are still working on some problems that they've had.

    I honestly like the new site but I am wondering where to find the media guides and stuff like that.

    I'm seeing everything clearly from like Internet Explorer 7 or 8. On Chrome, I'm seeing everything as well.

    I think it is a good start. Needs polish, but overall it is a step in the right direction
