Had to post on this: Yahoo Buying Rivals.com for $100 million? Wow. Wow. Wow. (via PaidContent.org, a phenomenal site and one of my favorites.)

Rivals.com,Danis such a waste.Even though, they give a lot of info on high school athletic rumors (like ESPN Insider) uh,you can get that off of Scout.com for free.(message boards) I've even seen my favorite college blogger(Atleagle.blogspot.com BC Eagles Blog)point out many times by Rivals use for plagiarism.

Ryan, thanks for the hat tip. I don't want to lump all rivals sites with Eagle Action (which has been caught plagiarising). Yahoo will hopefully hold Rivals to a higher standard. The irony of all of this is that Rivals could have bought Rivals when it was on its last leg in 2001 for a lot less than $100 M.

Good job Rivals.com, you copied ESPN.com's homepage EXACTLY.

dan. I think that i have the raidrs 2 in the mock draft. I was wondering if you think this is a good trade. Raiders 2 and moss for browns 1.

Rivals.com. Love them. If a player is being offered by Ohio State...he has 4-5 stars. If the same player then decides to go to a MAC school, despite still being offered by a B10 school, he would be re-rated at 2-3 stars.

Amazing.
