The October cfbstats.com Pledge Drive

Saturday, October 1st, 2011

I created cfbstats.com to provide college football statistics for the FBS that are not freely available anywhere else, including leader boards with split and situational statistics for teams and players.  Thanks to you, cfbstats.com ranks either first or second in Google, bing, and Yahoo! searches for college football statistics.

In addition to building and maintaining the site, I’ve spent thousands of hours on collecting the data that is presented here.  I don’t have a company that provides me with statistics and I don’t get them from the NCAA.  I compile the data from the official game box scores from each of the FBS schools.  That’s nearly 5,000 games so far.

Since launching the website in February of 2006, the cost of operation, including paying monthly for a web hosting provider, has come out of my own pocket.  So I’m asking now for help to defray the cost.   I’ve chosen the month of October for the first-ever pledge drive at cfbstats.com.  If you find the site useful, either because you love stats, want to settle an argument, or use it for work, please consider a donation.  No amount is too small.

Donations can be made with a credit card via PayPal by clicking on the Donate button below.  You do not need a PayPal account to make a donation.  If you’d rather not use a credit card but still would like to donate, please contact me and I’ll provide a mailing address.  My email is marty@cfbstats.com.

I’m glad so many of you love college football statistics as much as I do.  Thank you for your support.
