oh yea i can tell. Definitely a time-consuming effort, but i'm guessing it was a labor of love.

Is the triple option viable now with a better passer (Vad Lee) under center for the Yellow Jackets? And can Ted Roof fix the team's atrocious defense? Spring football starts digging for answers...

Didn't take long for my entire Google+ stream to turn into superusers (rather than actual friend connections). Does this say more about Google+, or more about my friends?

Thanks, Robbie. Yeah, I figured that was the best way -- I guess I was just remarking on the fact that very few of my real-life friends had posted anything on here of late. Felt like at least with Twitter, people I actually know are intermingled with press and thought leaders, but I think that's just a product of people not using this medium as much yet. Chances are it will change as adoption grows.

For every ACC fan, here's the 50 accounts you should be following on Twitter.
After reading Athlon's "50 Twitter Accounts Every College Football Fan Should Follow" last week, two things occurred to me: 1. There's a supreme lack of ACC representation on that list 2. How could...

Looking at Notre Dame's schedule (with consideration to its agreement with the ACC) from 2014-16. They need to do some reshuffling, but it's certainly doable:

Thanks! Yeah, obviously not perfect by any means, but tried to figure out what their schedule would look like while making the least waves possible. Still unsure how they handle that "15th game" every cycle, too.

If "enterinf text" was intentional then you are awesome.

Anyway, I have also run into issues. Most of why I'm asking is because I'm really motivated to help get this thing into as usable a state as possible. Most of my interactions have been through the desktop app and the android app, so I'm a bit blind to the difficulties of the mobile web app, but I've definitely heard corroborating reports.

That said, I do think the article could do a better job of consolidating their 15 easy steps. I really see these 6:

Set up your profile (11)
Set up your circles (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 12, 13)
Try sparks (8)
Try hangouts (9, 10)
Interact with content (6, 14)
Invite people (15)

Notice I skipped 7 altogether, since it really isn't an easy step.

But in any case, I'd love to hear more of your feedback as you interact with the product more. :)
