    Sports Websites That Aren't ESPN

    I pretty much use ESPN.com for all of my sports news, scores, etc (excluding ISU news which I get from CF and Cyclones.com). ESPN's website is really easy to use, but I was wondering if anybody else uses a different website they'd recommend. I checked out Yahoo sports for a bit. It has lots of content, but a really clumsy design that isn't very easy to navigate (though Yahoo and Fleaflicker are the best fantasy sites).

    Any others? Suggestions?

    BTW, this urge for another online sports news source is somewhat influenced by ESPN's involvement with conference realignment. I'll prob stick with ESPN, but just want to see what you all use.

    CBSSports isn't bad. They have some decent writers, and some not so decent ones.

    CNNSI is ok for the major sports. I read Peter King and Andy Staples every Monday during football season.

    CollegeFootballNews is very good for analysis, but their user interface could use some work. It's been the same for the past 10 years, I think.

    I use ESPN because whether we like them or not, they have as much news as anyone plus I know my way around it.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    I go to Yahoo sports a lot. It has a ton of well written articles that are more obscure than you would find anywhere. Factually obscure of course.

    I like to use yahoo sports. The only thing I really use ESPN for is for the Big 12 blog.

    Yahoo is vastly better than ESPN. The only thing ESPN does better is live tracking for games.
