In an opening week where even the elite teams in college football looked mortal, the SEC had two big surprises in Texas A&M and Georgia defeating their South Carolinian opponents by big scores.

The release of Football Outsiders Almanac 2010 is just around the corner, and to get people excited, we've decided to release some sample material from the book. This year's free samples include the SEC East by David Gardner and the New York Jets by Bill Barnwell. (This is the Jets chapter referenced in the recent ESPN Magazine piece on Darrelle Revis.)
Pricing for FOA 2010 will be the same as last year:
BY POPULAR DEMAND! We will also offer a new "Fantasy Football Haters Package" that includes just a year of Premium and a copy of FOA 2010 for $48.
KUBIAK officially goes on sale Friday afternoon. (Note: You can now purchase KUBIAK and FOA 2010 in the FO store.) This week, only the KUBIAK projections and the College Football Almanac will be available. However, in order to allow package purchases, people who buy the regular FOA 2010 (or a package that includes the regular FOA 2010) will be able to download the college football material now, and then come back in a week to get the full FOA 2010.
The print-to-order, standard book version of FOA 2010 will then be available 10-14 days after we start selling the PDF, which means it will go up on Amazon sometime around July 18. Createspace has now added a distribution channel for actual bookstores; if you work for a bookstore and are interested in ordering copies of FOA 2010, please e-mail us at info-at-footballoutsiders.com.
We hope everyone enjoys the samples and we look forward to bringing you the whole book very soon.
P.S. Please note that we are re-working the NFL season simulation to reflect recent events like the injury to Pittsburgh's Willie Colon, so the percentages listed in the Jets sample chapter may not be quite the same as the final version of the book.
