KSR College Debuts

Today marks the official debut of our latest undertaking here at KSR, the site KSRCollege.com. We are very excited about this new venture as it gives us a chance to expand the KSR name into a second website with a new set of writers. The idea of a second website is one that we have kicked around for some time and it is something that I personally have hoped to make happen for nearly a year. Our goals with the new site are simple:

1. Give a New Generation of Writers a Forum: Over the years, KSR has become a great place for writers to find their voice and has created a whole new generation of Kentucky sports coverage. KSR writers have not only become full time writers (such as Beisner and Drew) but have also gone on to other media outlets. Now with KSRCollege, a new group gets a chance to make their way and create other opportunities for those trying to break into the sports media world apart from the traditional outlets.

2. Expanded Sports Coverage: Because of the limitations of space and manpower, some of the secondary sports at UK don’t receive the coverage we would like here on KSR. That is why we have writers dedicated to women’s basketball, football, baseball and the secondary sports at UK on KSRCollege.com. While we also will cover UK men’s basketball as well, I expect you will get more coverage of these secondary sports at KSRCollege than you will at any other outlet on the web.

3. Diverse Content: KSR is not exactly shy in how it writes. BUT, because we have a diverse audience of young and old, we sometimes do not post things that we otherwise would. KSRCollege will have a more broad set of standards, and will appeal to those with younger sensibilities. Simply put, we will allow things there that would not be allowed all the time here. In addition, when our KSR writers want to go “off topic”, we will use that site to write some of “The Bachelor” type posts that we don’t often use here. This site will allow us to get our non-UK thoughts on in a different forum.

I hope you will go to KSRCollege.com and visit today and in the future. Please comment in the comment section and help these young writers. We don’t expect nearly the audience on KSR College that we have here, and that is ok. But the writers writing there care about their work just as much and are equally as passionate about UK athletics. I hope you will welcome and encourage them, and help create the future generation of KSR and UK commentators/bloggers.

    Why would you hate Ashley? Cause she has more smarts in her finger than you have in your whole body? Or just jealous that she is a hottie and you are the nerd in the corner? Which is it?

    As one who has never been amused by your “Bachelor” posts (or the Entourage, or Lost & Found, or Kentucky Zombies, or whatever posts), thank you for pushing that crap onto another site. I am hopeful that will make the great service you provide on this site even better.

    By the way, so long as the BTI creature is not posting on this alternative student underground site, I will probably go there to check it out anyway, having been fairly warned that it is part of a dubious subculture.

    Don’t forget to vote! In just over an hour Davis has went from 3rd to 1st. He only leads by a few votes, so get voting!

    Why not put a link to the KSR College site (as other suggest),
    but why not show a list of the radio stations with their
    physical and dial location— heck even include the call in numbers.

    Come On- don’t wait for the “new” site to do this. 😉

    This is like calling a Chevy truck a GMC truck…. it’s the same thing. Why bother ?

    Okay, so we have two KSRs now……..now why is that, again? If you just appended this site to your other wouldn’t you reduce the overhead or something? I’m old & I’m confused………….

    I appreciate the effort and fresh perspective from the student writers, the posts I’ve read are good. However, why re-use the same old tired WordPress template? This would have been an opportunity to also test our a fresh(er) design that loads faster and can handle more traffic.

    And another thing from someone that works daily on search engine optimization: you should cross-link your two websites (link on each of them pointing to the other) not only for convenience, but to drive up the Google ranking on the KSRcollege.com site. Google’s algorithm scores relevancy (among other things) on inbound links from highly ranked sites.

    New writers, aren’t all the writers on this site new?

    It is silly to call football a “secondary” sport when it is the sport that brings in the most money for the university and has the most people at its games. To list football along with women’s basketball and say that it is a “secondary” sport is ignorant, sorry.
