I've been seeing 247 Sports popping up a lot, and SI.com seems to be using them almost exclusively lately. I read where it was the owners of Rivals that started the site. Why start up a competitor? Anyone know anything about the service?

I went to the 247 home page to check it out and scrolling down the page I noticed the Recruit database section. The Picture of a profile they show says vid santos. It looks like david santos pretty sweet

Knew this thread was here somewhere, as of midnight Huskers Illustrated is moving over to 247, Aaron and Mike Babcock will be moving over there, but Sean Callahan, John Talman and the rest of the staff will stay at Rivals for now, presumably to fill their contracts. I think Rivals Florida and North Carolina groups are headed over also. Rivals may be in serious trouble.

It's done.

HuskersIllustrated is now nebraska.247sports.com and nebraska.rivals.com is now HuskerOnline.com

Looks like Sean Callahan and John Talman are now running the Nebraska Rivals site.

Mike and Aaron are good guys, but Sean Callahan and John Talman are top notch.

It's not pulling up on my computer, says page doesn't exist yet. So now who's on top? HO, HI or BRR? Bet scout really hurts from this, luckily for them ESPN piggybacks off their writers.

I would say HuskerOnline with John Talman, Sean Callahan and the crew.

HI and 247 have a head of steam, they picked up a TON of sites tonight,

The new sites at 247 were online for a bit, but are back down now.

Think 7 sites went over tonight...

Nebraska, Indiana, Florida, Kentucky, Iowa, North Carolina and Florida State.

But it looks like most of them were split, the Rivals employees stay and will run their own sites and the independants are moving over to 247. I've I said, I think Rivals still has the best Husker staff.

Okay, I think this cleared it up for me now. I wasn't sure who went where, but now I'm good. I guess I'll just keep my stuff on HI.com, or now HuskerOnline.com. I like John, Sean and the guys.

The biggest drawback from that though is the fact that Yahoo and Rivals are WAY behind the times as far as their website goes. Their message board format is sh#t and the fact that you get a virus from RSS about once a month is also a pain in the ass.

I wish John and the guys would have gone to 247Sports.com

They have mentioned that upgrades are coming, so that should be interesting. I could just be stupid, but I can't find how to view a members profile or search the forums at 247 yet, pretty basic features to be missing if they actually are. This is still, by far, my favorite place to discuss Husker Football, but I do also enjoy reading the articles that John and Sean put out, and some of the posters at RSS.

Invest in antivirus software. Or even better, say "NO!" to Windows.

OSX is only slightly better than Windows. Try using linux - it actually doesn't get viruses.

Linux is just as prone to viruses as OSX or Windows, it just isn't targeted as much.

I guess my question is more, how do you get a virus from visiting RSS once a month? Do you click on a virus link that a member posts? Does Rivals have some malware being delivered through their sites?

Rivals sells ad space, some of the people who place the ads have injected Malware into the ads, the individual sites have no control over it.

There is nothing about the people that write the Linux kernel or applications that run on Linux more flawless than Microsoft's engineers and coders. There's just fewer people using it, therefore less people try to exploit the vulnerabilities that exist than those who attack Microsoft.

Gentoo is the safest, but good luck installing it. -_-



I've been checking out 247, and it doesn't seem any better or worse than rivals over the last few days.

That is horribly irresponsible of Rivals. I may just avoid them from now on.

Wasn't there something like this with Scout too? My goodness.

To be fair, this happens on most websites that have a third party advertiser, which is most of them from what I can tell. As an example, imagine Google paid Rivals for their ad space, then Google is responsible for the ads and Rivals doesn't usually know what's going to be on the ads until they're posted. You just have to be careful when clicking on ANY link anywhere on the web.

Sigh. You didn't check the links did you? The long and short of it is that web servers are more valuable to hack than home computers. Linux/unix is on more servers (in addition to embedded devices, smart phones, etc.) than Windows. Therefore, there should be a lot of hackers trying to break into linux/unix.

I did read the links, they are highly slanted and dangerous articles, Linux is a more secure OS out of the box, no argument, but that doesn't mean you don't need to protect it and that it's not vulnerable. People attack Apache all of the time, go look at the stats for Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies and what their preference is regarding Linux vs Windows for Web Servers. People attack end users because they're the weakest link in the system, and always will be.

Curious if you're in the IT field and what you do.
