BLUEGOLDONLINE.COM FEBRUARY 2022 3 A LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER W e have exciting news! On Jan. 1, we moved the web- site from the Rivals network, where it has been hosted for over seven years, to On3 — a new network started by Shan- non Terry, the "Steve Jobs" of college sports networks. Terry took over a bankrupt Rivals in 2001 and built it into the premier col- lege sports network in the business be- fore selling it to Yahoo in 2007. Three years later, he left the corporate culture at Yahoo and started 247Sports, eventu- ally selling it to CBS Sports and helping the network become the new leader of the industry, far surpassing Rivals in revenue, innovation and technology. With a vision for an even better and different college sports network, Terry left CBS Sports last August and started On3. This will be his "iPhone," and we wanted to be part of it.
