Mailbag idea

To promote interest and engage with our new readership, I want to start doing a weekly mailbag.

Welcome, one and all

Welcome to the latest addition of Bobcat Nation. Come here often for a wealth of coverage of Montana State athletics and competition throughout the Big Sky Conference. We hope you enjoy what you see. Thank you for the support and don't be afraid to contribute to something that's here to stay.

Included in this entry, you will find a brief introduction followed by some early notes for the week, a prediction and an injury report. Enjoy!

Welcome to the new BobcatNation Homepage

The first step in the next generation of BobcatNation is complete.  The homepage has been reworked to give us a solid frontend to handle new content both from us and all of the Bobcat Coverage from Colter.  I apologize for having to do this mid-season, but we are going with what we have been dealt and taking this great opportunity that we have in front of us.  Due to the fact that this process is a bit rushed, you will notice that we are starting with the "function" side and will try to work as quickly as possible into the "form" side of things.
