More good suggestions. I'll try to get the survey put together by this weekend.
POD - As far as the customization, the color customization will be similar to what it is now, with some of the site colors changing based on the team you have selected as your favorite. (For a real treat change your team to Tennessee and see all the orange. lol) Aside from that, I intend to have a number of RSS news feeds that you can choose to show on the home page, including ones for specific conferences and teams. It would basically allow GD to be a centralized place for news stories you're interested in. I think a board reorganization is a good idea.
cfg - Right now I'm thinking that replacing the featured articles section with the fan blogs is going to be the way to go. Same type of thing, but hopefully much more current and updated.
gopher - Do you not remember how much fun hornsfan was? We had him believing we were going to buy ESPN - classic stuff! lol
IP - Perhaps the edit button could be something you have to earn. ; )
GDMc - The Pick 'em is definitely going to change and adding the ability to change your picks until the cutoff time is going to be added. There's nothing I can do about the A&M - Texas score though, since the cutoff time has passed for that game.
