Atlanta_DawgAtlanta_Dawg Posts: 65 ✭✭ Sophmore

which do yall prefer, and do yall even choose to use either? currently a member of 247, which i do like, but looking to get opinions to see if Rivals is a better alternative, or if i should only use dawgnation and not play 10 dollars a month??

    @Atlanta_Dawg I'll admit that it may sound like a wimpy thing.... but I just don't feel like having a "go around" with my wife over the cost of using either one. Besides, if RIGHT HERE is GREAT (& I believe that it really actually IS GREAT RIGHT HERE!) I have found (for me) that right in here at the DawgNation website, along with MOSTLY @JeffSentell (as well as some others too) , AND THEN there is the DawgNation forum members (in particular to me? members @tiger_62082 , & @CZCashvilleDawg ??? I feel like I am more informed here by those sources than most any other places that always seem either lazy like for instance ESPN, or just plain dumb? like perhaps CBS Sports? Anyway, there's a LOT of GREAT STUFF right HERE!!! GO DAWGS!!!

    Also the athletic costs 2.99 a month but you get access to every sport and every writer. No ads, no clickbait. Good app. Not sure how it’s financially viable but I’m enjoying the ride will it lasts

    Agreed sir. I will check the 247 for rankings, but most of the time the stories that break here break 1st or are better written and more detailed.

    247 is the standard for recruiter ratings, Rivals has the 2 most active national boards, so it depends on what you're interested in.

    I use both. I prefer 247. I do believe 247 drops info first, especially as it relates to recruiting. Rivals and Dawgnation offer more in depth info.

  • Atlanta_DawgAtlanta_Dawg Posts: 65 ✭✭ Sophmore

    yea i really do like 247 but the lack of depth on info is pretty bad.

  • pgjacksonpgjackson Posts: 1,584 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    The only thing I use 247 and Rivals for is data. Would be nice if DN built some links to player and team rankings, scholarship distribution, targets, offers and stuff like that.

    247 is probably first because they post a bunch of unsubstantiated stuff that somebody or other heard or just made up. You can be a lot faster when you don’t care about accuracy.

    I’ve never wasted my money on that site. But following this site I have occasionally known enough about a subject, then see a story on their site and just roll my eyes. That’s only happened a few times though because I only loosely follow recruiting. I don’t try to be tiger about it.

    The ratings on 247 are free. I think OP’s question is more towards what for-pay information is better.

    Im a member of 247, its worth the 10$, its prob wont be what u expect but its a servicable sight, im not a fan of rusty or kipp bc i they put out lazy articles, the jake rowe practice reports are what i like best, @JeffSentell is better than kipp or rusty

  • Atlanta_DawgAtlanta_Dawg Posts: 65 ✭✭ Sophmore

    yea the most dedicated reporter/writer imo is Keith Neibhur. although i dont like Auburn, he is relentless in putting out stuff and replying to his community

    Keith does respond in the forum but he has alot of fluff stories

    Not on any pay sites, just read DawgNation and DawgBone. Recommend you check out DawgBone if you don’t already read it, compiles articles from several different sources, such as Field St Forum, The Red And Black, Get the Picture, DawgNation, and Bulldawg Illustrated. Once practice starts I also read The Athens Banner’s practice report, all these sources get in for the same practice period, but they usually watch and report on different position groups.

  • CZCashvilleDawgCZCashvilleDawg Posts: 1,315 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    @coastaldawg Dawgbone is a daily read(s) for me in the AM at the gym. Solid analysis from different angles.

    That being said, I don’t do pay sites but I feel what we get from @JeffSentell and BA is priceless and am sure glad they avoided the cuts.

    Same here. I used to be on Scout...now 24/7...all the time. And then it was a pay-only site and I found my way here. The only time I am on 24/7 now is to look at the Ga. high school board, which is still free.

    I was on Scout from 2003 under ghostofuga1 and HODawg. When they switched over, that place fell fast. Fortunately I found DN. Good to see you, PG and few others having made your way over here. Great board with a lot of info and really great posters....save a few....

  • WCDawgWCDawg Posts: 2,437 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Rivals has the 2 most active national boards, 247 has the best recruit info and rankings. Rivals board mods are awful,they are what keeps me from joining.

    Their boards just died.They also use 247's recruit rankings and info, so there's no added value there either. Also Legge is an annoying twit.

  • SavannahDawg1SavannahDawg1 Posts: 250 ✭✭✭ Junior

    247 without a doubt.

  • 3rdshift3rdshift Posts: 115 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Dean banned me from the Dawg boards way back when because I made a post about being careful on going on the UT (Scout Site) at the time because of virus threats in which I dealt with. I mentioned it on Dawgpost as a warning and he gave me a permanent ban for inferring that the Scout sites was "unsafe".

    Never had much admiration for him since then.......

  • FunroeFunroe Posts: 137 ✭✭✭ Junior

    I prefer Rivals over 247, the insiders at rivals seem to post more often and have better content, besides Rusty. I only use 247 for the composite rankings and the crystal balls. However, all the information finds its way to DawgNation and this site is a great alternative.

    I was jacket68 on the Scout board for 10 years until it went down the toilet. All you old-timers from Scout know why I had that handle....and it wasn't for GT.

    Some of the old Scout guys are over there, but it is no longer the lively board that it was before.

  • dawgy10dawgy10 Posts: 759 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    A bunch of guys on 247 that moan and groan and never happy, they think they know the uga recruiting board and who kirby should take and not take
