SEATTLE — As of August 1st, those wondering what they get with a subscription to OU Insider or any site on network now have a different, indisputably more positive and crystal clear answer.


Today, OU Insider introduces the "Total Access Pass," which at new lower pricing, offers users access to more than ever before:

  • Two OU Members-only message boards, (Inside OU Sports and Recruiting and Recruiting Status Board), on OU Insider.
  • All content on throughout the entire network ñ that means every College, NFL, High School and Expert site.
  • All recruiting and expert content on network.
  • The 'Scout' Player and Roster Database.
  • And Coming Next Month: Player Pages, detailing the recruitment and careers of players from high school, college and the pro ranks.
  • The Total Access Pass is now available at a price of $79.95 (for an annual subscription), or $7.95 monthly, CEO Jim Heckman announced. The special pricing has been slashed from $119.90 for Club and Recruiting annual passes, (or $11.90 per month), plus it offers a significant savings over the competition.

    While supplies last, anyone purchasing an annual Total Access Pass also will receive a free Recruiting Yearbook. This high-gloss, superbly designed publication features the top recruiting experts in the country, led by Jamie Newberg on football and Dave Telep on basketball.'s experts have been together since 1998, when they invented the recruiting database, exclusively featuring Nike Camp data.

    "We're knocking down all the barriers," Heckman said, "and we're so eager for our customers to see everything we have to offer, we've completely slashed our prices. Not only do we have the top college team sites and best recruiting experts on the Web, we have an elite-level NFL network, which nobody else has.

    "Now there's nothing to decipher, no decisions to make, no more confusion. 'What do I get?' Everything, more than anywhere else. 'Total Access' says it perfectly."

    "Again, no more confusion," Heckman said. "Our re-designed elements make it much easier for the users to find what they want. We think it also spotlights the great, proprietary content that is produced by our recruiting, draft and other experts, as well as our team publishers and their staffs."

    OU Insider Publisher Brian Bishop confirmed that existing OU Insider subscribers can upgrade their accounts to Total Access via a special, time-credit offer. Those customers will have the dollar-equivalent of time remaining on current subscriptions applied as additional time on their Total Access Pass. "We wanted to protect our current subscribers while at the same time lowering prices. There's nothing worse than buying something and seeing it go on sale the next week at a 40% discount. This plan protects the people that supported us during our initial year," Bishop said shortly after the announcement was made.

    "We hope this is a simple, more affordable, less confusing option for sports fans who want to follow both the Sooners and ther favorite NFL team. For one reduced price they now get everything from OU recruiting to NFL training camps," Bishop added.
