Roster and why can we not have an eligibility tracker? With all the updates that you have can we not get the simplist of services even the other sites provide this. I love your sites but there some areas that need to be addressed. Thank you for listening to my concerns.
Would've worked a lot better
I can answer the roster part of it, we usually wait until we get the official one from the school, which hasn't happened yet. The moment we get it we will make all the changes.

... as for the eligibility tracker, Saban doesn't release that information, so even if we did add it there would be some guessing involved
Thanks Chris! Would you guys consider updating based on your current knowledge of scholarship players? It is a great tool for projecting future teams. Lucky has told me on several occassions he was going to add the tracker. Thank you once again!
I will see what we can do for you all, along with some organizational, administrative grouping as well.
"Simplest" not "simplist". If you're going to pompously state how simple a service is at least spell "simple" correctly.
The Roster should be updated. Its not very user friendly, but it should be updated.
The eligibility tracker is needed and on the list, just other items ahead of it. We will get to it, but right now spending most of our time on (1) finishing our infrastructure (2) message boards and (3) owning everything with recruiting.
It is a fine line for us building products that are already all over the internet, like a Roster. We need those products but they don't really get many views and they aren't they reason that people use BOL/247.
I appreciate the suggestions and we are certainly working to get there. We will be building all of the products for the next couple years -- no plans to slow down.

I just checked out the Roster. We need to convert it to the new year. Ill talk to the guys about filliping the switch next week, so guys like Barrett Jones, etc get moved out.
Awesome response. This site does/has way WAY more than any other Recruiting site. Best available by a mile. To complain and compare this site to others over a SIMPLE updated roster and eligibility tracker *that you can Google at anytime* is a killed silly IMO. JMO of course. Great job by you and the whole staff Lucky. The future is even brighter, running the competition out! ROLL TIDE!
Thank you so much, you guys are the best! You made an ole dude happy!

yeah. the original post comes off as passive-aggressive whining.
to the OP. I'm sure they're just waiting on the official Spring Roster which should be released any minute now. Wouldn't that be better than them guessing, putting one out there, something be wrong, then have OP come in whining about it being wrong. Or have countless threads asking why "so and so" isn't practicing this Spring, etc. I dunno.
