    Announcement: AllBuffs 2.0 is Launching on August 15th

    Friends, peers, and tini:

    As some of you may have noticed, AllBuffs had reached the point where it was living off the legend of its historical greatness among the elite of college sports fan sites.

    We have neglected our facilities infrastructure for too long, the rust was showing, and we didn't have the bells and whistles to attract new recruits.

    It was time to modernize. As the wise sage Charlie Sheen said, it's about #winning. We listened.

    By virtue of hoarding Membership fees, ad revenues and CU Gear store commissions for a while, we reached our project financing goals for AllBuffs 2.0. Our financing close was able to be fast-tracked when we made the decision to spend well under the original $160 million budget that our feasibility study said was justified. On the lower final budget, we (sadly) couldn't afford the infrastructure necessary to monetize the Gaga revenue stream... but there's still a lot of cool stuff.

    chipwich and EscapeFromNMBuff worked their asses off on this, so rep those guys. They're like unpaid grad assistants on a coaching staff -- only they don't get a free degree and they damn sure don't want to put this site on their resumes. So if you see either of them in person, you might want to show some extra thanks. Buy a beer or, better yet, throw a handie their way. I mean, it was a lot of donated work. A little yank-yank don't cost nothin'. Seems about right for balancing the scales. Just sayin'.

    AllBuffs 2.0 will launch on August 15th, 2015 with the following new features:

    • AllBuffs mobile website that puts Tapatalk out to pasture
    • Performance enhancements
    • Facebook, Google and Twitter integration
    • Improved support for embedding video and social media content (100+ sites supported)

    The plan is for the current site to be taken offline at 8pm MDT on Friday, August 14th, (so try to find something to fill the void on a Friday night). Then, we plan to be back up with AB 2.0 on the new platform on... well, we're shooting for Saturday afternoon of the 15th but you know how these things go. Best way to make sure chip & EfNMB get off their asses and get it done is to post harassing stuff to the Allbuffs FB page while the site is down: https://www.facebook.com/Allbuffs

    The Junta sincerely thanks all those who have contributed to the site through Annual Membership. We have some cool surprise goodies for you waiting in the white van on the other side of the pay wall.

    One thing that we had to do is raise the Annual Membership to $20 a year. Sorry about that, but we've got a bunch of new costs with enhanced data security and a new server that pretty much doubled our monthly operating costs.

    If you're not a Member, please become one.

    Please note that we are adding an option for those of you with big hearts to donate an amount above the Annual Membership fee. Times are tough out there and your generosity could make the difference on whether some escort and dealer kids have a Christmas this year. Please think of the children.

    Also, we were able to do a lot of other great things with the AllBuffs revenues we squirreled away:

    • Buffs Walk Brick to honor our beloved and departed Junction (please do your part to keep the bird **** off it)

    • Season football tickets donated to the weekly Ticket Drawing
    • A new tailgate toy for Sackygate - The Official AllBuffs Tailgate
    • Season men's hoops tickets we will give away to the AB faithful for each home game
    • Some stuff we forgot to mention or were too lazy to type out
    • [strike]The mother of all hooker & blow parties[/strike] Administrative stuff we won't bore you with

    Last, we at the Junta want to offer sincere thanks to all of you for taking time away from your porn browsing to bull**** with us on AllBuffs.

    We remain: For the fans, by the fans.

    - The Junta

    P.S. If you have any ideas, suggestions or complaints related to AllBuffs 2.0, please direct them via PM to our customer service department @96 Buff.

    The Junction brick brought tears to my eyes. Very cool. Would it be possible to include a Junction map on the site? People may want to stop by and say hi, I know I do.
