Looking for advice/tips

    I'm looking for a tad of advice from anyone here in regards to a Web site I've created.

    In part, I designed the site for journalists' use, trying to save everyone (yes, that includes me) a little bit of time. It's http://www.wyoming-football.com, and it's a game-by-game log of Wyoming high school football.

    While the content will most likely not directly apply to you personally, please take a moment and look at it. What I'm wondering is, as journalists, what things do you see that need work/improvement? What can I do to the site to make it as easy, quick and user-friendly as possible, without getting too deep into Web programming?

    Check out this guy's site. It's called Georgia High School Football Historians. It's awesome! I believe it was created and is run by a guy for the AJC.

    I created a little website that warehouses and shares video.

    Maybe list standings from at least last year on there? (Only looked quickly, so sorry if I missed them.)
    Seems like that wouldn't take too long and it'd be info everyone wants to know. Otherwise I've got to click on every team to find out how they finished.
    All-State teams and the like would be cool, but I could see how that's lots of work on your part. I think info from last year is the most interesting, because it kinda lets you gauge what's going to happen this year.
    Do you keep stat? last year's stats would be kinda interesting.
    Anyway, it's pretty easy to use right now, so good work on that. That's just my 2 cents.

    Thanks for that link. Any other states have similar sites? I know Michigan has one, but past that I don't know any others.

    AM, thanks for the tips. Standings would be a nice boost....
