IT IS OFFICIAL.... Planet Red Hoops is now the University of Louisville affiliate on TheInsiders.com Network. For the next month we will be making the transition to our new home on TheInsiders.com Network and we're planning a 1 January 2003  launch date. 

From the beginning, the goal at Planet Red Hoops was to create the # 1 University of Louisville fan site on the net. The formula was simple and has proven effective. We have taken great efforts to provide the best and most accurate recruiting and team information available to our fans while simultaneously developing and cultivating the top message board community available for UofL fans to discuss the latest recruiting news and events. 

In our first four months on the internet, every decision made and partnership entered has been with that goal in mind, to be the best UofL web site and the popular choice of all Cardinal fans. Last month, Planet Red Hoops  and UofLcards.com, one of the oldest and most respected independent fan sites, joined forces to provide Louisville fans with the best coverage and recruiting news of both UofL basketball and football.  Then, in early December, Inside theVille announced thatCardfans.com, another popular independent UofL fan site, had agreed to join forces to form the top UofL fan site on the internet!

Now, this partnership with TheInsiders.com  Network will provide our members access to the most comprehensive basketball and football recruiting databases on the internet and to nationally recognized analysts like Dave Telep of theinsidershoops.com, Tracey Pierson of PacWestFootball.com, Jamie Newberg and Scott Kennedy of BorderWars.com, Max Emfinger of MaxEmfingerRecruiting.com, John Bakas of FloridaPrepFootball.com, Kevin Lustgarten of JC Football.com, and Chris Monter of MonterDraftNews.com, while allowing us to continue and expand upon our localized coverage of University of Louisville athletics and its recruiting efforts. 

Our new site, Inside theVille, will be heavily geared toward providing information you can't and won't find anywhere else...which means lots of RECRUITING information, unique and insightful pre and post game analysis for each basketball and football game, special features on current and former players and much, much more. Inside theVille will be the most comprehensive source of information on Cardinal Athletics you'll find anywhere!

As part of TheInsiders.com  Network, Inside theVille is now afforded the opportunity to capitalize on partnerships formed by former Rivals.com founder and current TheInsiders.com CEO Jim Heckman, with well-known entities such as Yahoo!, Sports Illustrated, ESPN and Fox Sports. The technology employed by TheInsiders.com is quite impressive and will allow us tremendous flexibility and creativity in the publishing process. We will be able to have our own unique look and feel while retaining total control over the web sites content. At the end of the day, this partnership gives us the tools to provide even more features and recruiting coverage that University of Louisville fans are thirsting for.

And best of all, TheInsiders.com recognizes the importance of our message board community to the overall popularity of the web site. That's why our message boards will always remain FREE for all members to participate and have a voice on Cardinal Athletics. The message board community we've established in the last several months is the main reason for the rapid success and popularity of Planet Red Hoops and it was important that we have that kind of flexibility in this agreement. Member participation on our message forums will continue to be an integral part of our success and popularity as the source of information for UofL fans. 

So without further delay, Planet Red Hoops, UofLcards.com and Cardfans.com is proud to introduce.....Inside theVille.......the authority on Planet Red   as the newest member of the #1 sports fan network on the internet..TheInsiders.com.
