In a move I was screaming at them to make every time I had the opportunity when I worked there… The News-Gazette and WDWS have finally rid themselves of the stupid, stupid, STUPID paid SportsFacts site and created a new, FREE home for all Illini sports, IlliniHQ.com.
It has been very long in the making.
This place has everything anyone would ever want for Illinois athletics: blogs, commentary, video commentary, news, and podcasts. I never could find the time to listen to The News-Gazette Sports Page or SportsTalk on the radio, but now I can subscribe to their podcast.
What took me most by surprise is the IlliniBoard.com is now a part of IlliniHQ.com. I’ve really enjoyed going on the board and reading the message board’s content regarding recruiting, game analysis and sometimes some pretty wild speculation. It was fun and informative. Good move.
I hope this takes off. I know I have it bookmarked. If you are an Illini fan, you should too.
