Obviously, National Signing Day is one of our busiest days of the year here on the site and I always like to take this time to drop you guys a quick line to say THANK YOU for choosing to spend it with us here at CatsPause.com.
I can't stress to you enough how much I love my job and love what I do and the fact of the matter is we wouldn't be able to do it without the people that support this site. Thank you, thank you, thank you for subscribing to CatsPause.com and making our community here a daily part of your lives. We try to mention that as much as possible, but we can never mention it enough. We wouldn’t be here without you and we’ll never forget that.
Been seeing a lot of new names on the site in recent weeks not to mention the names I've been seeing on here for years and would like to take this time to thank everyone for being a part of what we do here.
We've celebrated a great year together. Kentucky basketball brought home its eighth national championship in dominant fashion and now Mark Stoops not only brought in one of UK's best recruiting classes in a really long time, he has the buzz and excitement around the program at maybe an all-time high.
From a technology standpoint, 247Sports prides itself on being cutting edge and in 2012 alone, we added the 247Composite, Twitter feeds, mobile enhancements and text alerts. And we aren't done. There are plenty more updates on the way, as outlined HERE. As always, 247Sports is committed as they have been for the last two plus years in building products and features for users with the goal to enhance their experience on the site.
It's been a lot of fun but it doesn't end here. It never does. It will be really exciting to see this basketball team continue to grow and see what the finished product looks like by the time March rolls around. And if Stoops and Co. can put together this type of class in 66 days, imagine what they can do over the course of a full year?
Over the next several weeks, we'll have complete coverage of:
– UK's run toward the NCAA Tournament as the Cats attempt to defend its national title
– All the latest on Andrew Wiggins, Julius Randle and Aaron Gordon as John Calipari tries to put the cherry on top of what could be the greatest recruiting class of all time.
– Big picture coverage of UK's 2014 football targets, including this weekend's junior day event, new offers, camps and other events. It's important to remember the next 12 weeks are one of the busiest periods of the year in terms of football recruiting news.
– Team football news and reports leading up to the Blue/White Spring Game. How different will the team look when the Cats take the field the night of April 13?
So in short, if you're on a 7-day free trial, you're definitely going to want to stick around. If you're on a month-to-month membership, you're definitely going to want to upgrade to an annual and it's honestly in your best interest to do so. Financially it’s the better option (it's cheaper), there’s only one charge your significant other sees on the credit card statement versus having a monthly reminder and you can expect the same great coverage year-round from us here at CatsPause.com.
At the risk of sounding immodest, I truly believe that you won't find better UK and recruiting coverage anywhere else on the internet. There are some sites that excel in certain areas or in one thing or another but I honestly feel like you don't get better well-rounded coverage of basketball, football and basketball/football recruiting as well as a sense of community on House of Blue anywhere else. And you get it at roughly .30 cents a day. You can't beat that.
So once again and I can't say it enough, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. We thank you. My mother thanks you. We couldn't do it without you.
Well, thanks Chris. I want to thank you and the rest of the CP247 staff for the outstanding Uk coverage..and you are right to assume its the best UK coverage out there..if there were one better..Id be on it..CP247 is my best and only site 4 all things UK!!
Keep up the great job!! 2013 is gonna be fun..and unless I miss my guess..2014 will be epic..both in football and bball!!
Thanks Chris you guys are the best. Catspause is the best 30 cent a day I ever spent! I've looked at all the other recruiting sites but there's no place I'd rather be than here in "the House of Blue"! We appreciate your hard work and dedication to keeping us informed about whats going on with our Cats. Keep up the good work and we'll be here to cheer you on.
Thank you Chris, and to the entire staff as well. It definitely cannot be easy to be doing some of the crazy stuff like you guys have to do on days like NSD. We all on this board greatly appreciate you and the rest of the staff's efforts to bust your butts and provide us the information that you all do. Cheers!
Thanks again for all the work, Chris.
I don't really post a lot, but you can believe after work this is the first page I check when I get home. You guys do a great job here. Thanks for keeping us in the loop.
Thank You Chris and the rest of the staff. Y'all always do a great job and have some of the best info available anywhere.
You guys are killing it Chris and I really appreciate the effort that is put forth on this site. I've been a subscriber to other sites for years but now this is the only site I pay for. The info you guys put out is awesome and it's well worth the pennies I spend for it on a yearly basis.
I love you guys, a job well done just doesn't say enough.
Great post by Chris, and thanks so much to everyone for all the kind words in this thread.
We're proud of what we're doing here, and we're working hard every day to bring more value to our subscribers. In addition to all the news, this board is developing into a cool community to be part of every day.
We have some OT fun with the prediction threads, folks talking about my Reds, etc.
Chris did a great job highlighting what's to come in the short and long term. Shannon's tech post lays out a lot of our innovations, too.
Thanks again to Chris, Josh, Matt, Darrell and most of all - to all of YOU
Your team. All the time.
Fish - first of all, thanks for all you and the other staff members do. It really is amazing the amount of content and the quality/depth of the reporting. I went to school with The Reaper, and he has always been a great sports writer.
That said, has your staff considered any "meet & greet" events? I think it would be cool to head out to the local watering hole to meet once or twice a year to interact face to face with this community. It might not be the staff's cup of tea, but I think it would be pretty neat to build up the group for those interested.
I hope this upcoming year goes well for our teams and your staff. Be blessed!
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, and it has made all the difference (Frost).
Great idea. Need to make this happen. Maybe for the spring game?
You cannot beat the coverage of UK Football this site provides. They are head over heels above everyone else and I love it! Thanks for all you all do!
What about a Cats Pause tailgate for the Spring game and maybe an indoor event late fall (i.e. near the end of our first winning season under Stoops & beginning of #9's basketball's season)?
Thank you to the entire staff at CatsPause. Sincerely appreciate the reporting you guys do. You are on top of it and your post are generally pretty accurate. Keep up the good work! Lots to be excited about in the BBN these days.
