Please include a sports-related writing sample and any links to your work or websites in your email. Examples that show your knowledge of UT sports are preferred.

You will be expected to make at least 3 posts per week. The perfect applicant will be passionate about the Horns and of course also need to be knowledgeable about college football, basketball, and baseball. Being opinionated and witty wouldn’t hurt your chances either.

Unless you’re brand new around here you’ve no doubt noticed some major changes to Bevo Sports this week. We’re officially Version 2.0!

It’s been a long time in the making, starting as a list of features and some simple sketches on paper back in March, design finally started in June, development in August, and miraculously we had the site live and running on schedule for the opening weekend of the 2008 college football season.

The most obvious difference is the site has undergone a major design facelift. We’ve redesigned everything from the ground up. A new clean, modern look that we think not only looks good but is going to make the site is easier to use. We’ve also reorganized everything to make it easier to find what you’re looking for. All content is grouped by sport, select football, basketball, baseball, or recruiting from the top navigation to find the latest coverage and analysis of each sport. Everything else will be listed under the Other Sports drop down.

The homepage has been completely reworked to present more content to you in and better highlight all the best stuff the site has to offer. Next to the main features you’ll find the most recent and most read articles. Below it are all the latest stories grouped by sport, the top performers from the most recent games, and the latest video featured on the site. Schedules, rosters, depth charts, and more for each sport are also right around the corner.

Just as importantly, the roster of editors on the site is also about to grow. We’re actively looking for writers to help us continue to expand the quantity and the quality of the content on Bevo Sports. We’ll have a full article on what we’re looking for and what’s in it for you soon, but if you’re eager to throw you hat in the ring please let us know. The site is only going to get better and better.

We’re not done yet though. We’ve got more changes still to be made, additional features to be added, and likely bugs to squash (but hopefully not too many). Please let us know via the contact form if you run into any problems, have trouble finding anything, or just have a feature request or comments on the new site. We hope you enjoy the new and improved site!
