The web site, developed with the assistance of Bluechip Athletic Solutions, is a one-stop destination for all things involving the Big Red football program.

You can learn more about all the elements that make Cornell football a special family - from the quality of the coaching staff to the beauty of Cornell's campus and everything in between.

In addition to offering 360 degree panoramic views of the campus and Ithaca, features dozens of videos, profiles and links about Big Red football wrapped in video game-like design and navigation.

With spring football underway, The Big Red football team is pointing toward the 2011 season just five short months away. Under second-year head coach Kent Austin, Cornell is primed for big improvement with arguably the youngest roster in the Ancient Eight.
