Site News – Site Closure

Posted by Andrew McKillop on May 16, 2012

It’s been a great run at I believe the research I published was mostly original and in-depth. But as I approach new endeavors, I simply don’t have the time to upkeep this website.

In the new few weeks, I’ll be moving a handful of articles over to my new website As I move the articles, I will also be updating the info. The training camp (NFL and NBA), NCAA probation (FB and BB), FBS vs. FCS, and a few others will be moved and updated.

Any other article that isn’t moved will stay with this website, but won’t be updated unless I move it at a later date. The website will remain online, there just won’t be anymore updates.

The NCAA/NAIA database will be staying put for now. I have no intentions of moving or updating the data for now. At some point this summer, I would like to start a website specifically based on the database. I would also like to add non-NCAA/NAIA titles when I do that. I’m not making any promises about that though.

Also the SportsDelve Twitter account will be deleted in a week. If you would like, you can follow my work @FBGeography.

Thank you to everybody that has supported and visited

In the upcoming months will continue to grow.  I hope to see the visitors of make the trek over.

As always I appreciate the time everybody has taken to visit this website.

Site News – Future Updates

Posted by Andrew McKillop on December 28, 2011

I would like to thank everybody for visiting  It’s been an incredible experience developing the site.  I have corresponded with a lot of friendly sports fans, and I appreciate all the encouragement I received from sports researchers/writers.

As you have probably noticed, there hasn’t been a new post for a while.  From here on out SportsDelve will be receiving minimal updates to the content already posted, i.e. the posts College Football and Probation, FBS vs. FCS, National Champions Database, etc.

By mid-January I hope to launch a new self-hosted website, which will focus specifically on football.  The site isn’t ready yet, so I don’t want to release any details.  But the website will have a specific focus, and will include one-of-a-kind research.

Until the launch of my new website, there won’t be any updates of any kind to  But I hope that doesn’t stop you from enjoying the tremendous amount of content that has already been posted.  Be sure to check out the blog index here.

I’ll also be sure to forward everybody the address of my new website when it’s ready.

Thanks again and Happy New Year!
