Not only can we get excited about the start of spring practice but the technology team at SBNation continues to make this platform the class of the entire sports blog universe.
Starting this morning you will notice a few small chances in some features of the Ralphie Report, all for the better. You will also notice the integration of official photos from the Associated Press, which is big time news in getting you the best photos taken on Saturday's.
Here are some of the cool features that you should check out. You can now access stats, player news, schedules and other informative pieces on this site. All of these new toys can be accessed under the banner ad at the top of the page on the main tool bar:
The Colorado Buffaloes Team Page - provides you a look at the major stories, fan posts, fan shots from our site as well as box scores and standings for the Buffs. A great looking page.
Team Schedule - the best part about this tab is the ability to click on the coverage link for each game (see below).
Game Coverage - probably my favorite new feature of the site. This gives you the opportunity to see what we are saying about a game, what the other team's blog is saying about the game or the Buffs, an Associated Press wrap up story, the ability to see what people say during the game on our site as well as scores from all college football games going on that weekend. This will turn into the hub on game day when you need to read about the opponent or catch up on what we have talked about.
Player Page with Stats - our tech team is working on making sure the stats are all good to go but by clicking on the player in the roster setting or in a tag of a post, you can see his vitals, yearly stats and any stories we have written about him along with pictures.
SBN has done an excellent job of enhancing the sites features. This will make the site more tech friendly and serve as place for you to find all of your sports information.
Got any questions, comments, etc. about the new stuff, let us know below.
