    Looks pretty cool.

    This should be fun. Seem to have a good sense of humor about things. They'll iron out the little things, I'm sure, like forgetting Rick George's name or referring to CU as "Colorado University". :lol:

    Seriously, I'm actually excited about this. It will be a good addition for us. Launches 8/25.

    Rick George's wandering eyes welcome her to call him whatever she wants...

    I'm curious to know how there funded? If maybe some alumni are behind this or maybe even netbuffs? I noticed at the bottom of the page that their sources are not near as competent as what gets posted here.

    is this what they call "new media?" a tweet from some rave in San Fran next to a story about shingles, a tweet about CU's latest commit and an old man left at the hospital.

    looks like they plan to be a for profit entity, they are boulder based and have a number of positions listed on their site which rules out SportsWar who owns NB and is east-coast based (also not interested in this type of venture). Once you nailed the architecture nd content for 1 school syndicating would be easy.

    They launched this week.

    Interesting. Most of the page is filled with social media posts related to the Buffs. You can look at everything or filter by Tweets, Instagrams or whatnot. Good amount of original content, too.

    There's Part I of their interview with Rick George on there now.

    I'm going to bookmark this site and see how it goes.

    This is one way to endear themselves to the fanbase

    It's almost like a student run news channel for campus, except it's technically unaffiliated so they can do whatever they want, is my impression.

    Exactly. All we need to see is the name in the credits and we know it's garbage. No reason to give him a click in order to read it.
