And now, some news for the college football fans. Today, we're launching a brand new College Football Outsiders homepage. You can find it right here. Unfortunately, somebody else owns the collegefootballoutsiders.com domain, so we'll have to make do with www.footballoutsiders.com/college for now.
College football fans have always had a bit of a hard time finding articles on FO because we run a lot more NFL-related content than we do college content. Weekly columns fall off the homepage "recent articles" list within a couple days, and the few college Extra Points we post would get lost amidst the NFL news. With the new College Football Outsiders, that no longer has to be the case. If you are strictly a college football fan, you can go to the new homepage and know that you'll see the latest editions of Varsity Numbers, One Foot Inbounds, and Fremeau Efficiency Ratings, plus any draft content.
We're also going to be expanding Extra Points with more college football news and links, which you may have already noticed in the last couple weeks. You now have three different Extra Points feeds to choose from: all XP, NFL XP, and college XP. You'll find the links at the bottom of the Extra Points menus (like the tab on the front page).
For those wondering, no, we aren't doing an NFL-only homepage, because we don't have a problem where the college football content ever overwhelms the NFL content. Of course, Extra Points are a different story -- college football was a lot more newsworthy last week, for example -- which is why we now have the three different XP feeds.
There's also a new College Football Outsiders Twitter feed to follow: @FO_College.
We hope this is the next step towards making our college football community as vibrant and involved as our NFL fan community. I would say "check it out," but actually -- if you're already coming to FO and reading both NFL and college football content, don't check it out. You can go ahead and keep reading all of FO! But if you have a friend who only likes college football, tell him to check it out.

Is a high-variance quarterback inherently worth more to a team that's a fringe contender? What in the heck has gotten into Jerricho Cotchery? Why is Jared Cook so confusing?
