Send It Back – January 2011

by | February 5, 2011, 8:00am 0

2011 has already been a big year for Skyd. We introduced a few new features, brought on some new contributors, announced our first set of power rankings and even branched out into a new, Ultimate insider’s blog with Inside Breaks.

Skyd shattered content records set by previous months with a stunning 95 posts in January 2011. We’re really proud to be able to provide so much content to the Ultimate community and are continually rewarded by the enthusiastic responses of readers. On facebook and twitter, we’re continuing to spread the word of Skyd as well.

As we near the end of our 2011 College Team Previews, I wanted to put out a thank you to all those teams and individuals who took the time to contribute responses. Together, we have done something never before accomplished in the sport of Ultimate and that is make a huge effort in bringing our world together.

Without further ado, here are some of our top posts from January of 2011:
