Due to a need to replace a faulty power supply the sites will be down for hopefully just a few minutes tomorrow afternoon as the power supply is being replace. The work is scheduled to occur sometime between 1 and 3 pm ET and should affect only our CFB, CBB and Olympics sites and this blog. Should a longer outage be necessary or any additional sites be affected, we will post any updates to our twitter accounts.

As a pre-bowl season present to all, we would like to announce that we have added a LOT more college football data. New data fills out individual player stats back to 1956, and includes:
- Passing/Rushing/Receiving - complete seasonal offensive stats back to 1956 for players, which means we now have leaderboards for the past 57+ years
- Interceptions - we now have full data back to 1976, which means that a player like Charles Woodson no longer looks like just a wide receiver, and Deion Sanders isn't just some guy who played for Florida State.
- Punt and kick returns - we now have full data back to 1976, which also benefits Woodson & Sanders, of course, but helps fill out the stats of players like Tim Brown and Barry Sanders
- Punting and kicking stats - also dating back to 1976, you can now get your fill of the kicking stats of various Zendejases
We've also added 1,312 new team seasons worth of data back to 1956, updating every major and many non-major schools' complete offensive stats. Finally, we've fleshed out player links between the college football and pro football sites, so finding pro stats for college players should be much easier (and vice versa). Look for an expansion of the Play Index tools soon to encompass this new data.
A BIG thanks to guys at Sports Data Research for working with us to bring this update to the site.
