NWFA Website Gets Pimped!
The NWFA website is undergoing some major changes. The website is up and running but hasn't been "officially" redirected.
You can get a sneak peek at the new site by going to the old site womensfootballcentral.com and clicking on the redirect link.
"We are very pleased with the look of our new site," states Debby Lening, VP. "We think our new site looks cleaner and will be easier for our fans to navigate," adds Lening.
The original site will still be used to stream the Gender Bowl on December 8th.
Another exciting season of college basketball is under way and the race for the Wooden Award is on. It is obvious from the first few weeks of the season that there is a lot to look forward to in the coming months.
All 50 players on the Wooden Award Preseason All-American Team have shown that they have the talent and drive to lead their teams to greatness (see stats below).
The "Wooden Watch," the bi-monthly newsletter that provides all the up-to-date information on college basketball's top players, will begin on December 12 and continue every two weeks thereafter.
Follow the action all season long and be sure to tell your friends to sign up for the Wooden Watch at woodenaward.com
In our new pledge to shoot it at you when it happens, the first question of the day is: How do you give 70 mil to a guy whose nickname on his previous team was ???Nancy????
Almost by everybody.
Being a Yankee fan I would say the J.D. Drew signing gives me pause on whether it was a great move, or something just a shade over, say, trying to convince all of New England that Coco Crisp would make them forget about losing Johnny Damon last season.
Even Coco thought that was cuckoo.
But let???s get back to J.D. Drew. Watching him in my current backyard of Hollyrock, there were games where he wouldn???t play with boo-boos my two-year-old would laugh at. He did log in 146 games, which is a marathon for a guy who???s never played over 150 in a season.
