Site maintenance news

This will likely not affect 95% of you who do not look through the years 2005-2011 on the site, but I'm going to be doing some maintenance on these years to try to bring them up to the existing templates used on the '12 & '13 football seasons and the 2012-13 basketball season.  That means prepping those seasons into database tables and using the existing programming structures used through most of the current athletic year.

(PS - If you really want to know about those programming structures, email me. It will bore 99% of you.)

I elected not to go with the archive format of 2000-04 because I had RSN affiliate information.  However I don't intend to carry over affiliate lists, except for FSN national games, because many of those links are no longer valid due to site changes over on those sites, or in the case of sites like JP Sports, they don't exist anymore.

Football should be relatively easy.  Basketball will be more daunting because of the sheer number of games.  I started on 2005 last night and will probably take through the spring & summer to get everything converted over.  This work is secondary to anything on the current year, so it wouldn't delay any TV or schedule information being done on the current or upcoming season.

Thanks for your patience and patronage.
