I think I have mentioned this before, but the OnePointSafety.com is not my first attempt at running a college football blog. I have had a couple of blogs prior to this one, however, none of them were as successful. I had a blog at TexAgs.com titled “Campusology” (hence the name of the tabbed section on this blog), a blog on Google’s Blogger titled “The College Football Independent,” a WordPress.com blog titled “The Crystal Football,” and maybe one more that I can’t remember. I also did some guest blogging at places like PhilSteele.com and HeismanPundit.com; and I had an account at BleacherReport.com (all of which I would like to transfer here if possible).
For the longest time I had thought that everything I posted at those sites was gone, lost to the internet forever. However, the other day I found that my old Blogger and WordPress accounts were still “alive” and I could retrieve some of my old posts. I figured that some of them might be worth saving and so I have decided to start transferring them over here to OnePointSafety.com.
Keep in mind, these old posts are not timely anymore and they are probably worthless to anyone now (in fact, come to think of it, they were probably worthless at the time I originally posted them). However, for preservation sake, I am going to start re-posting them here. I will include the header/banner from the original blog into these posts in order to make these older posts more identifiable and easier for readers to skip or ignore if you are not interested. I hope you enjoy the walk down memory lane as much as I do.
Note: I am going to create a category for these old blog posts and title it “CFBIndependent-CrystalFootball.” Oh, and I am not going to edit or update these old posts, so you can see them in their original format (and see exactly how terrible they were when I originally posted them).
