Even before I started OverThePylon, I would anxiously await the release of the media guide of the teams I was interested in. It was as behind the scenes as you could get in terms of the history of a program, the stories of the athletes and staff members, etc. Obviously with the advent of the internet, the need for bulky paper media guides and their glossy covers and high dollar production costs, the digital media guide was born. Along with a lot of other internet sites and functions that you don’t really talk about at Christmas Dinner.
Ball State, long known for cutting edge media work, was one of the first schools to adopt the digital only philosophy now employed by nearly every major program. Never one to let average be good enough, the BSU media staff has spiced up the guide with embedded videos and other assorted goodies that should at least keep you occupied through the end of your work day. Then it’s tailgate time and kickoff. Coast along with us, won’t you?
Normally, the guide releases in late summer and though release on gameday isn’t ideal, it does two things. First and foremost, it allows fans, visitors, recruits, and media types easy access to BSU related football information. Second, it means Associate AD Joe Hernandez will stop being pestered by me about its release date which I’m sure he’s excited about. That’s win-win if I’ve ever seen one.
You can check out the 2013 digital guide here and amaze your friends with your knowledge and grasp of BSU football. As well as check out some cool little extras in this digital version. Enjoy!
