The FanHouse

Yay! I can reveal my state secret.

I hope you'll all enjoy reading this stuff as much as I've helped doing my part to help create it.

America Online is in the process of launching a massive sports blog on their AOL Sports site. The AOL Sports Blog is going to consist of many die-hard football fans (I believe the number is near 100) posting daily updates on their favorite team(s). The NFL portion of this site launched today, and the full college football effect is coming soon (early next week).

I am proud to announce that I have been selected to take part in this project. I will be covering the Wisconsin Badgers for the NCAA portion of the AOL FanHouse. While the NCAA site hasn't launched yet, I have been posting regularly, and you are able to read the stuff I've posted in one simple place.

Please bookmark this page. I will be posting updates regularly (daily, actually, with some days featuring more than one update). Audience participation is completely encouraged.

(Please note that our MGoBoy, Brian, is one of the lead bloggers, which means I'll be harassing him all season long with stupid questions. By mid-October, if he doesn't want to already, he'll want to shove me off a bridge.)

That doesn't mean posts will go away here. But it will mean that much of the Wisconsin-leaning content will be moving to the AOL site. The BlogPoll stuff, the weekly national previews, and Randomization will be staying here.

Hats off to Jamie Mottram and all the crew at AOL for hatching this idea and working exceptionally hard to make it happen.

Congrats Bruce. Sounds like it's going to be one hell of a group. Hope it doesn't take away from the hockey coverage though!
