The FCS Magazine is Here and Ready to Ship!

Early this morning the FCS magazines were delivered to our offices and all of you who have Pre-Ordered your FCS magazine I can promise that your magazine will be shipped out of our offices today! For those of you who have not ordered my first stand only FCS Preview here’s a brief history of my FCS coverage over the years:

In 2007, I made the commitment to provide quality in-depth FCS information and I provided a ¼ page on each FCS team in my Pac-10 Regional. There was moderate interest and I increased the coverage to 1/2 page per team in 2008.

In 2009 I moved the coverage to my ACC & Big East Regional giving the FCS even more exposure. Last year I increased the coverage on each team to a FULL PAGE and the interest increased. This season I am very proud to produce a magazine that gives each and every school equal FCS coverage!

The FCS continues to provide fans with quality football and with 96 games this season against FBS foes interest will continue to grow. TV contracts are also becoming bigger, which will continue to expand the viewing audience while more and more upsets seem to occur each season. The NFL draft also brings to light the quality of players that come from the FCS. It is time the Nation realizes that many of these quality FCS programs can compete day in and day out with many FBS conferences.

If you're an FCS fan I can promise you there is no other preview like it on the market today with 240 pages dedicated to the FCS! You can order it through our offices by calling us at 1-866-918-7711 or by going to PhilSteele.com and it is just $13.70 (S&H included). You will become an instant expert on EVERY FCS team and remember every year there are more and more matchups between FCS and FBS schools. So get a leg up on one of your favorite team's possible FCS opponent this year by purchasing the Phil Steele 2011 FCS Preview today!

I need your help:

If you’re an FCS coach, AD, conference coordinator, SID or FCS fan please help me promote each and every one of the126 FCS schools by purchasing my 2011 FCS preview and by putting the word out to your associates and known FCS fans. I want to put out a FCS Preview each year as college football is a labor of love for me but with printing costs, plus time and effort I have to see that there is a significant demand out there. If you have a twitter or facebook account or a blog spread the word to anyone that you know is a FCS fan. Last year we sold just under 1,000 copies of the FCS magazine that was located in one of our regional magazines but this year with it being a stand-alone magazine I want to sell many more copies. Since there will be a limited distribution of the magazine in book stores and newsstands the best way to get your hands on the 2011 FCS Preview is ordering online at the PhilSteele.com store or by purchasing thru our offices at 1-866-918-7711.  Let’s make the FCS Preview a standard tradition much like what my National College Preview has become the last 17 years!

Pro Magazine Update:

With free agency wrapping up and all of the teams now in training camp, we will be sending my 2011 NFL Preview to the press this Friday. I promise you it will be the most up-to-date Preview magazine on the market today that includes all the trades and free agency moves. The shipment of Pro magazines should be in my offices by August 16th and it will be hitting the newsstands by August 30th. If you have a fantasy draft coming up in the end of August your best bet to get your hands on the NFL Magazine is to order online at the PhilSteele.com store or by calling our offices at 1-866-918-7711. Remember this year we are expanding the Fantasy portion of the magazine and are bringing in a Fantasy football writer from a popular Emmy-Award winning web based show to author that section! The cost of the NFL Magazine is just $12.70 (includes S&H).
