WE PREFER MUCH LESS COVERAGE IN RIVALS’ REPORTING: Yahoo Sports is the only giganto sports website we visit, thanks to a more understated, measured approach. The site columnists give us everything and more that the grandstanding, me-first cartoon characters at ESPN.com - without the involuntary audio, RAM-robbing pop-ups, takeover screens and Mike and Mike annoying Ad du jour (no Greenberg, my foot odor really isn’t that bad).
Though with the addition of Rivals.com content, we find the site to be a top-heavy in the college football department.
UPDATE: THE BIG LEAD reports today that Yahoo Sports passed ESPN.com in visitors last month. And TBL has another link to Russell, who we think may soon become an internet sensation (without the arrogant, fake protestation and rapist-defending lawyer father).
