wrote a magazine, and it doesn't suck.
In conjunction with the good folks over at Pro Football Weekly,
CollegeFootballNews.com has put together a preview magazine going on
newsstands everywhere this week.
Now go buy it.
It's got all the normal stuff like team previews, All-America teams,
bowl projections, and Heisman predictions, but we also have a Q&A with
Ohio State LB James Laurinaitis, a good primer for the year with
everything you need to know about the hot new teams, the big games,
schedules, predictions for every game, and the star players you should
be paying attention to. I also wrote a special Cavalcade of Whimsy-style
crystal ball piece letting you know exactly what's going to happen this
year and who's going to end up playing for the whole ball of wax.
More than anything else, you need to go buy the magazine for one reason:
Kind of like Charles Barkley being misquoted in his autobiography,
the photo of me inside is totally and completely misrepresented in print as my hair is all foofy,
my neck is all pencil-like, and worst of all worlds, it might be the one
recorded picture anywhere of me wearing a tie. Trying to set the record
straight, this is the photo of me that was supposed to go in the mag.
See, attractive, right? But somehow they took the wrong photo and I look
like a total and complete dork. Would you pay $6.99 to get a good laugh?
Of course you would, and I guarantee you'll at least be amused by my Kiperesqe hair. Oh yeah, and the football info is good, too.
Yeah, if you
want the ins and outs of the Utah State backup offensive linemen, you
need to come to CollegeFootballNews.com for the in-depth stuff. In the
magazine, we give quick-hitting views and analysis of every team and
every league so you can have it all in one nice, neat, little bundle.
We have a bazillion different covers hitting all regions; the sample
covers up above are just two of the ones available. So go out and buy
one. Buy seven. Buy 15. They're great stocking stuffers, they're fun for
all ages (hasn't your wife been nagging you to read to the kids more?),
and you'll be helping a worthy cause. Actually, you'll just be helping
us at CFN provide you with more free stuff on-line, but it's not like
you'd have given that $6.99 to help kids with cancer. (Actually, do that
Yeah, I know,
the economy, but if you walk to your bookstore instead of drive, you'll
have paid for the magazine right there.
It's the inaugural CFN preview magazine. Buy it, and I'll name my next
six kids after you.
As always, thanks so much for checking out the site and reading our
inane ramblings. As always, let us know what we need to do to be better.
