New site?

I dont know if its appropriate to advertise one site on another but I just stumbled upon www.owlaccess.com  Alot of great stuff on the stadium and sports.  I like this message board much more though.  How long has that site been out?  I only found it when I went to bring up this page and typed fauOWLnest.com instead of fauOWLSnest.com.

Also here is a great video on the stadium.  I wish Hakeeme Ishmar would spend as much time practicing scoring touchdowns instead of his touchdown dance.

That's dirty pool to use a domain name almost identical to this one.  That's hijacking of web traffic.

If Rick doesn't mind I will say they have some decent coverage, news type, of FAU athletics but as far as message boards go it is a VERY VERY Weak.  It is also paid content for much of it.

GO OWLS!

Re: New site?

Why would I mind?

Truth is truth…they do have good coverage.

I believe we all have a nitch of sorts…too bad there isn't more of a feeling of family and cohesiveness is my only complaint, and will just leave it at that.

Btw, I spoke to Marcus a bit ago and he indicated that the purchase of www.fauowlnest.com was "part of a recommended marketing strategy" when his site was started…

You're far more forgiving than I would be.  I've had people register similar domains to some of my websites and had to go after them as they were trying to steal traffic from my sites.  Trademark infringement of sorts. If you have no problem with this tactic,  no worries.

Re: New site?

The people behind both sites love FAU sports and I really think the sites complement each other more than anything.

I think of this as the "fan" site and theirs as the "media" site.

Between this site, Ted's blog and Owlaccess.com, we're completely covered. That's why it's no big deal that the Rivals.com FAU page completely blows and the joke of a blog over at the PBP is barely ever updated.

If anything, I'd like more "on the ground" information about the non-sports, campus life side of FAU. The University Press writes what, five or six stories a week and that's not enough. At the same time, I know there's very little audience for the UP as it is so it's not like a spin-off paper could be started and live off advertising revenue.



 

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

I realize there is some friction between this site and OwlAccess.com but if you're an FAU sports fan you're missing out if you don't read both regularly.

Personally, I visit this site strictly for the message board, and OwlAccess for breaking news and exclusive stories that ODB Uncle Teddy neglects
