Hey there DJ,

I like the new cleaner look of your site.
As a minor critique: On your section banner, you might want to consider adding in some explanations to help people figure out the categories you're offering (at least until you've built up some traffic).

In your FN blog here, your first link is working but the article links aren't.

I went and checked out the Amateurism and Tebow blogs.

On the amateurism article, I like the Olympic analogy.
You're right that there's already a recruiting imbalance between schools (and the current amateurism system hasn't closed it), but removing all restrictions on endorsements altogether will just widen that gap. It would be an interesting shjtstorm to follow as a sports fan though.

The Tebow-Coughlin comparison is a very unique take. Coughlin's a lot easier to feel indifferent towards, IMO, but you've presented a strong case (interwoven with plenty of humor as usual).

Hey Dunson, good looking site but it's a mess on the iPhone. I'll check it on my desktop later but it could be a simple coding issue. Again, great work!
