Well, give yourself a pat on the back if you survived another crazy and hectic recruiting finish. But at Bulldawgs247 the beat keeps on as we look forward to another great year of covering Mississippi State athletics.
I wanted to take a moment today to thank all of you for being part of our site and our growth over the past year has been beyond my modest expectations. I never imagined Bulldawgs247 would be in this position when we opened the site in late July of 2011. To that I say a huge 'Thank You' and you will never know how much I appreciate your support.
We are now over 1,000 members and nearly 2,000 people have been registered users. That blows my mind when I think back to where we were a year ago and it is all due to you guys.
To all of our new members of late, thank you so much for giving us an opportunity to capture your attention. I hope the majority of our free trial members stick around for the long haul and I can already tell how much the influx of new members has added to the overall product of our site. And it has all been for the good.
For Bulldawgs247 members that have been with us awhile, you know that my hard work and honest reporting will remain the same. Lord willing, I will continue to give you all I have in order to keep you updated as quickly as possible with MSU recruiting news and MSU team news.
I have been blessed this year with intern Brooks Roberts, as well, and you can see how much more he adds to the site. Brooks and myself will soon be bringing you solid baseball coverage as well as spring football that is right around the corner (that is hard to believe). We also have hoops still going on these days and the spring time always brings about a ton of news revolving around that trio of MSU sports.
With the homestretch of recruiting now concluded, we will resume our weekly columns of former MSU head coach Jackie Sherrill. Then in the fall our columnist lineup of Sherrill, Fred Smoot and Matt Wyatt will continue.
Of course, the Bulldogs will have other junior days in the near future and we will hit the Class of 2014 in full stride, starting with this week. And like the previous class, I will continue to bring you the latest twists and turns with MSU recruiting. It is out of my control to promise you we will deliver 100 percent of breaking news. But what I can control 100 percent of the time is to report accurately and that will always be the case.
All in all, I just wanted to express today what Bulldawgs247 means to me and how much I appreciate all of our members. I want us to keep growing and all of you have helped us so much by spreading the word and contributing to the site. To those that have handed out flyers promoting Bulldawgs247 or told a friend about us, thank you so much.
Recently I signed a contract extension with Bulldawgs247 and that extends my contract until the summer of 2017. I will continue to be dedicated to giving members their money's worth each and every single month at Bulldawgs247.
And if you are not with Bulldawgs247, we welcome you to give us a try today.
