So I have to admit sometimes I like to read the fiu blog in the Miami Herald (I wish we had that coverage from the Sentinel), anyway, David Neal put together an interesting comparison of CUSA programs based on athletic accomplishments. Here is the link to the first part of two that he wrote:

Raul, I think the Herald is doing better financially than the Sentinal and PBP. Therefore , they can have more writers and cover more subjects. The sports pages at the SS and PBP truly only cover pro sports and the three big colleges. If that doesn't interest you, there is no real reason to go to their sites.

So posting ONE story a week on the LOCAL U would hurt them and cost them too much?  Hard to build readership (and thus REVENUES) when you limit yourself!

Print media makes their money off advertising dollars not subscriptions. Subscriptions are used to sell advertising. Obviously, website "hits" pay a few bills as well. Kinda like our very own owls nest.

True.  Higher circulation; higher views; higher advertising rates.  on the surface Sun Sentinel is healthier.  Although Miami Herald sold their building a few years ago for a boat load and built in Doral.  So they may have a huge treasure chest, but cash flows from operations would be more important.

I know I used to (as did many other owl fans) go to the Sentinel everyday for Ted's blog/reporting on FAU.

Miss it A LOT! What is up with Ted now anyhow, he was VERY GOOD!

On another note regarding FAU football and public news/acceptance of the program, they need to DROP the secrative attitude and open practices to all and go back to having Owl fans being a part of the team more than JUST on game day or for the select few. We ARE NOT THAT GOOD to have to hide our secrets from the opposition, I know we don't scare them in the least to be so afraid of them stealing our teams secrets. We are a combined 15-33 (31%) since Howard retired for God's sake!!!

Let the community BE A PART OF THE TEAM if they wish to be.

Same. His blog is irreplaceable.

He tried to continue it a bit here on TON and some a-hole poster told him he was doing a bad job so he threw his hands up and walked away from it.

One of the Top 5 worst things to ever happen on this site, IMO. Wish he'd come back. I doubt you can follow that closely and then just give up the team. I'm sure he still keeps an eye on things.

He should be a nurse now, if he's doing the same thing he was when he left the paper.

P.S. I don't respond to guest posts. All guests are encouraged to register with the site.

I wish he would too, and would tell him so myself if I ever saw him. Hope he is doing well (Ted, if you are reading this - good - get back involved with the owl nation, PLEASE!). Don't even know where he is living. But who cares, the net is worldwide, right!

He's been a nurse now for a while.

The blog was a conflict of interest to his studies, so it had to go…
