D1 Baseball website
That was usually my go to site for College Baseball scores, but now you have to pay a subscription just for scores? Frick that. They use to be the best for news, schedules, live scores, etc. Now you must pay for everything. Need a good site for live scores. ESPN is usually behind

re: D1 Baseball website
D1 Baseball became a real disappointment over the last couple years IMO. $10 just for score access now is asinine.

The old format didn't look like much, but it was easy to navigate between boxscores, schedules, standings, etc.

re: D1 Baseball website
Do you just go and scroll through or look for certain teams? I honestly just go to the teams twitter account and check. It's not efficient for looking at everyone's scores but I don't really pay much attention to live scoring.

$9.99 a year. Stupid. I originally thought it was that a month. Still expensive.

You'd think for $10/month they'd format the site a little better. Looks like a middle schooler designed it.

All that subscription money is just going in Aaron Fitt's pocket.

I've subscribed for going on year two now, the design might blow but for content if you're a college baseball fan it is still without a doubt worth every penny with the best coverage by absolute miles. Kendall Rogers and Aaron Fitt are good at what they do.

Didn't know that about the scores though, pretty shitty move. That was seemingly everyones go to for scoreboard watching and you put it behind a paywall now? Ignorant.

re: D1 Baseball website
One reason I find it difficult to get as much into college baseball as I am into MLB is access to information and stats. I like to follow things closely without having to watch all the games. I want to get more into college ball but it’s hard to follow. If I want to know a players OPS or last year’s stats on a whim I’d have to go on a wild goose chase through the Internet.

$9.99 per month just for scores? That is one heck of a rip-off.

Maybe they know something we don't, but this will have to hurt site traffic, not to mention the potential for new premium content subscriptions. Really odd move.

Wow, that's bull shite. Even before this, the site went to shite. The scoreboard used to be awesome but now it's buggy and jumpy as frick. I appreciated that they went got some big writers and expanded their coverage, but they shite all over what I used to lvoe about them.

Yep, very dumb. They should've just streamlined it for mobile and embedded ads in it to make up revenue.

Not since Augie's alcoholic arse retired. Just call in and ask them if Texas A&M is the best university in Texas or something.

re: D1 Baseball website
Used this website since it was literally text and click boxes. The new format is defiently screwy but I’ll pay the money just because it’s virtually the only all inclusive college baseball website out there. Outside of a few major fan bases college baseball doesn’t get that much attention (other than when ESPN promotes it in June for their own purposes) so I’m sure it’s rough for these guys to make a living dedicating themselves to college baseball coverage only. Kendall Rogers work alone is worth the money

We are committed to college baseball. We’re a small business, and we're trying to make a living at this. Our scoreboard is a great product, and it’s a great deal for 10 bucks a year.

And hey, we get it, everyone likes getting stuff for free, I do too. But tell the folks at Tiger Droppings - the scores don't update themselves, believe it or not. It's a lot of work and it costs money. We have a staffer whose only job is updating scores, all season, every day.

Wait, they started charging for this? Holy shite that sucks.
Im actually considering starting a website dedicated to college baseball now and using ad revenue to make some money and posting scores for free.
