I was thinking that with all of the additions to 24/7, one interactive feature that might be cool to do would to be a Recruit Prediction Pick'em Contest, where basically members could sign in, have a list of, say, the top 50, or top 100 recruits, and pick what schools they end up signing with. You could either do it in conjunction with the release of the rankings or a little closer to signing day (though by then many are already committed). I think it would make for a fun contest, and you could offer free merchandise or a free year as the grand prize, or you could make it an even bigger prize to really build interest.
I think there would be some trickle-down benefits for you guys as well, particularly if there was a major prize that got people excited. For example, the more people want to win this thing, the more research they're gonna do, which means the more pages they're going to click, etc. That can't be bad for business. I think it'd be great to open it up across the network with a standard form of the top 50 or 100 recruits or uncommitted recruits if you do it near signing day, then show which team-sites fared the best as well. Could be a point of bragging rights for "smartest recruiting fan-base."
Just an idea that I think the members could really get behind and have some fun with.
