Okay, so we've had a lot of changes recently. *The addition of the Pitt Script Blog guys, new contributors, a new logo ... there's been lots going on. Well get ready because, in the words of Wade Barrett (who isn't pushed nearly enough, by the way), 'The winds of change are blowin'.'

Starting soon (and I mean, really, really soon), all SB Nation sites are going to have a completely different look as part of SB Nation United. I'm not going into all the details of the new layouts, but to sum up, the sites will load faster, they'll work well on mobile/tablet/PCs, and will help us keep more stories on the front page longer.

Take a look at some sample screenshots after the jump.

Here's an idea of what our front page will like, though it could change slightly from time to time. Having something like this will allow us to feature many stories right up front during the week or focus on several stories related to a particular game on gameday.

Voila (yeah, I get it - ignore the Todd Graham, photo):

Next, we'll be using something called Storystreams. If you've been to any of the regional sites or SBNation.com, you're probably familiar with these. But if not, they basically help declutter things by putting several stories in the same topic all on a single page. So if you're sick of us writing about things like ACC/Big East expansion, you won't have to look at all of the individual posts.

Here's what one looks like:

Next up, as I said earlier, the page will work will with mobile devices such as your phone or tablet. Here's what those look like (mobile first, then tablet):

Mobile_1_medium

Tablet_defending_big_d_river_medium

Like I said, this will be happening sooner rather than later. We can't give a date ... just know that it will be very soon.
