What you'll get in Kickoff 2011

Alex Tanney: Future record holder?

The release of Kickoff 2011 is less than two weeks away and our writers and editors are working hard to get you the latest information on all 239 teams.

But you don't just get a preview of your team, your opponents, the teams in your conference and the teams you might be battling for playoff positioning.

We also have more than two dozen feature stories in Kickoff. You'll get to know three Division III players chasing all-time career offensive records: Alex Tanney of Monmouth, UW-Whitewater's Levell Coppage and Dubuque's Mike Zweifel. You'll find out about how some former Division III football powers are dealing with life out of the national spotlight and how they hope to get it back. Plus you'll read about schools trying to replace a franchise quarterback, how defenses are adjusting to the spread of the spread offense, and more.

Kickoff is an online-only publication, which will be released on or about Aug. 23 in preparation for the first games the weekend of Sept. 3. It's the only thing we sell all year, and proceeds help fund operations so we can cover Division III the way the big sites cover Division I.

What does Kickoff include?

Registration -- think of it like buying Lindy's off the shelf at the bookstore -- is $11. Users with a .edu email address qualify for a discounted price of $7.
