Anyone have a subscription to "The Athletic"? I'm wondering

if it's worth it. The articles look to be really good.

Compared with the pay sites that only cover Clemson, it's an extreme bargain. However, they do very limited recruiting coverage.

In addition, their custom smartphone App is OUTSTANDING as opposed to attempting to use a browser on a smartphone.

I do. General CFB coverage is pretty decent if you have been following Stewart Mandel, Andy Staples and the like over the years.

Clemson coverage is so so if i am honest. I follow UGA, Bama, OSU and CU on the site and the amount of content spun from the first three dwarfs the CU side of things, but that is most likely due to more alumni/interest in those schools. In addition while Grace Raynor is a good writer, her mailbags and Q&As are often lacking in real substance and insight compared to the others.

In summary, if you want good general CFB and other sport coverage, its probably worth it. But if all you want is Clemson coverage, it isn't.

Grace does a good job. David Hood and Grace are the best best writers.

The Athletic has some of the best sports writing you will find anywhere.

However, if your interest is limited to something very narrow such as Clemson or recruiting, it isn't worth it.
