Hey Otis & Robert,
I was wondering if you could divulge anything about the site's partnership with CBS Sports. I think it's an awesome move and love that 247's ranking are already listed on the CBS Sports college football site. However, any article I've read about the partnership hasn't revealed much with both sides declining to comment. I was just hoping you could give us some more info about it or point me in the right direction.
Regardless, I think it's great and just one of the many advantages of this fast growing network.

There's not really a lot we can say at this point other than we're extremely excited about the partnership. You've already seen some of the results with the CBS logo on our site and our content on CBSSports.com. As we move forward, I think it's going to be a very positive thing for our network, and when we have information on that partnership that we can share, we certainly will.

Yes expanding company and resources only makes a buisness stronger. Glad to hear about the partnership. I really think rivals is in the dark ages for recruiting services. Love just reading random thoughts about the razorbacks.
With Rivals being owned by Yahoo and Scout owned by FoxSports/MSN, it certainly makes plenty of sense to have a partnership that provides similar exposure. Still, I really like the independency of this network and feel that it allows the innovative leaders at the top of it to be more creative.
Thanks for the response, Robert, and I look forward to hearing more in the future.

CBSSports is the one I happen to like of the others anyway as far as who the partnership could be with, thank goodness.
I agree this is an exciting partnership... I just hope you guys don't make Dennis Dodd a mod, too.
We are not going to have to re-create screen names for the CBS side of things are we?
I doubt there are any complications on our end. This appears to be a simple product partnership at this point, but, as Robert alluded to, there's definitely more to come.
It's very exciting to see how much 247Sports has done in just a year and a half. I'm very excited to learn more. The exposure from CBS combined with its (IMO) awesome college football corps with the likes of Bruce Feldman and Jeremy Fowler.
Can't wait to find out more...
I don;t think anything like that will be required.
Maybe it's just me, but the CBSSports recruiting page looks a lot better with this now on it...
