Since our start in mid-April, we've attempted to offer a balance of free and paid content on our front page. That won't change.
Fully credentialed by the FSU athletic department for home and away games, we are very excited about our football coverage.
In addition to daily practice reports and player features, we also will provide weekly updates from the Atlantic Coast Conference's coaches teleconference call, previews and rosters of Saturday's opponents, as well as a feature called Look Ahead, which will take a quick peek at upcoming games (It's aways fun to see if the Gators' and Hurricanes are enjoying life).
Our game coverage will include a lead story and scoring summary, complete with stats, quotes from FSU players and coaches, opponent quotes, photographs, The Territory's Play of the Game and segment grades. Sunday also is just as important on a game weekend.
Our recap coverage - called The Blitz - will feature coach Bobby Bowden's conference call with the media as well as a Player's Perspective following a good night's sleep.
We also believe variety is an important key to a fun and informative site.
For starters, we have introduced a number of standing features that we hope you have enjoyed. We believe no other web site covering FSU athletics offers as much diversity.
Those features include Bobby's Corner, Athlete Update, Sound Off, Personal Touch, Rewind and Porchville. We will soon introduce Athlete Spotlight, which will showcase athletes from sports such as soccer, swimming and cross country, and Off The Wall, a zany look at an athlete's life off the field. And let's not forget Kenny's comprehensive look each Wednesday at FSU's game-day performance.
All these features can be found under Seminole Musings.
For Total Access Pass subscribers, also keep in mind to check out Hot News for daily quick hitters. Additionally, follow our in-depth recruiting coverage, which is spearheaded by Jamie Newberg, considered the best in the business. For non-subscribers, also keep in mind TheInsiders.com has introduced a Recruiting Yearbook and is offering it free with the purchase of an annual Total Access Pass at $79.95 annually, or $7.95 per month.
A competing service, for example, charges $120 per year or $12 per month for a comparable package -- and it doesn't offer a free recruiting yearbook, NFL information or NFL sites.
And, if you live in Tallahassee, make sure to tune your radio to the Sports Authorities each Thursday from 5-6 p.m. on WTAL 1450-AM. The sports show is hosted by Steve Ellis of the Tallahassee Democrat and Jim Henry of the The Territory.
Again, we hope you've enjoyed The Territory, which continues to develop from its start in mid-April. And, as always, don't hesitate to let us know how we can improve our site. Enjoy the season.
