WeAreDePaul.com Joins Scout.com Network

SEATTLE, July 28th, 2005 – WeAreDePaul.com, the premier online community for DePaul University athletics is joining Scout.com, America's largest independent online sports network.

WeAreDePaul.com was founded over two years ago and is the home for DePaul Blue Demons fans and supporters.

"We are very excited about this move and what it will mean to our online community," said publisher Steve Newhouse. "Scout.com offers unparalled coverage of men's collegiate basketball and recruiting. Our members will know that they are getting the best information from Scout's nationally respected blue-ribbon team of experts Dave Telep, Frank Burlison, Tracy Pierson, Mike Sullivan, Greg Hicks and Jeff Goodman. We are pleased that Scout.com is the market leader for the Big East conference as DePaul begins a new era in the Big East. Another key factor in our decision to join Scout was that nearly every major hoops site in the country is with Scout.com. Sites like Illiniboard.com, InsideCarolina.com, BruinReportOnline, and Phog.net are all market leaders, and to have peer sites of this magnitude was clearly important. Also, Scout.com has recently begun coverage of women's college basketball and recruiting that is second to none. We are very pleased to be a part of Scout.com's syndication partnerships."
