    Multiple for me. Rivals & ESPN. I used to have all 4, but dropped Scout when Ringo left and 247 when I got fed up with a long absence by AZ.

    I thought allbuffs was a premium site.

    I had Rivals and Scout at one time, think I dropped them in 2005 or so.

    Just Rivals.

    For Chrome users, have you had issues logging in? My laptop is fine but my desktop and other computers won't let me in.

    Started on Scout, then came here. Dropped Scout for Rivals. Dropped it recently as it's too much time. Made a choice.

    Just Rivals. Adam does a great job with content on that site.

    Just like Bud Light is a premium beer?

    I screwed up on the poll. I also have ESPN Insider, but I pretty much never use it. I like having access to articles about multiple sports for a fairly cheap price.

    Rivals and ESPN. Scout went downhill years ago, although I liked the guy who wrote the magazine. Can't remember his name, but he was a good contributor. Ringo shouldn't have split time with the Daily Camera. Didn't work at all.

    AllBuffs is enough for me

    Rivals looks like they do a great job. They were the only site with photos and interviews after each spring practice.

    Get Rivals for free!

    Doug Kimmel is a good writer, but I'm not a Scout subscriber.

    You don't have a "I used to, but now I don't" option, but there was a time when I had them all, including Barzil. (Let's see: ESPN, Scout, Rivals, LeScoop (pre and post 247), and premium content on a couple of other sites specific to non-CU schools of interest.) I went cold turkey one day. Don't miss 'em much.

    I have gone to Rivals more than once with the intent of throwing $100/year to them simply for the info that flows through to this place.

    Then I remember I am so OCD I could not spend that money without reading the message board daily and I simply cannot invest that time...

    Is there enough going on with CU recruiting to justify paying for a premium site?

    Rivals. Admittedly I don't really know why anymore. These last few years have taken a toll on my football interest level. Obviously I'm really into it during the season, but my level of interest in recruiting has plummeted. Basketball over there is what it is. Some really solid stuff, some douchebaggery, some idiocy.

    It's not a premium site.

    Guess you'll be going now.

    Look forward to unloading 62 piss balloons on you in 2019.

    Rivals since like 2008. Recruiting is actually quite fun to follow when it's going well. Adam is the best in the biz but he has to have lost tons of (potential) subscribers with this staff

    None. I no longer feel the need to hear recruiting info immediately. Anything worthwhile makes it here or to Twitter eventually if you don't care about being the first to know.

    For me, the struggles haven't killed my interest in recruiting. Given the obscurity of some of these recruits, it's become even more important to have my Rivals sub. If not for Adam digging out info and interviews, some of these guys would be absolute ghosts.
