I would like to thank the good folks at LEARFIELD who partners with the magazine for are now allowing me to put out the VIP Bundle. There are many parts to deal and each one is a reason to get the VIP package but when you add it all up you get well over $200 worth of extra value for what you have paid for the magazine the last few years. Let me cover the details for you.

GET THE MAGAZINE FIRST – Well before it hits the newsstands!!!

You know the magazine has 3-4 times the information as any other college football magazine. You also know it takes a long time to read thru the 350+ page encyclopedia. If you want to get a head start on reading thru the estimated 1,000,000 words and numbers that are in the magazine, then you need a head start. The magazine will be available on the newsstands approximately July 4th this year. I send the last page to the press on June 7th. It takes the printer a little over a week to turn the magazine around. This year all the VIP orders will be shipped within days after the magazine rolls off the press! We had the VIP Bundle best Deal ever which expired March 31. Everyone who signed up for that will be sent out on the first day of mailing. We are currently taking orders on the VIP bundle and are on the 2nd day of the mailing. If you wait until May 31 then you may end up on the third day. Included in the price of the VIP deal is Two Day Shipping! That means while the rest of country will be staking out their local Barnes and Noble and waiting until July 4th to be able to purchase one, you should have it in your hands MID June! The VIP deal allows you to get the magazine well before it hits the newsstands!

Phil Steele’s 2023 National Cover

All VIP Bundle customers will get the 2023 National Cover with their order.

GET THE DIGITAL VERSION- Updated all summer long – $19.99 VALUE – FREE!

This will be the 29th year of the Phil Steele College Football Preview. Eight years ago, we hired a company to do our digital magazines and they handled it for five years. This company did an adequate job but there were some hiccups. Two years ago, LEARFIELD took over the digital part of the magazine and not only improved it but allowed me to update the magazine all the way until the start of the season. If a player hit the portal or was out for the year, we were able to change the pages in the magazine to keep you updated. Many of you who buy the magazine like to get the digital version to save on the wear and tear of the actual magazine which get worn out from being used every day from the time you get it until the bowls. Since we brought out the digital version, I have been asked many times if someone that purchased the magazine could get the digital for free. Naturally if you but the magazine at the newsstand, we have no way to verify that you bought it. A good portion of you that buy the hard copy have also had to pay the $19.95 for the digital each year. Now, since LEARFIELD handles the digital version and handles the sales of the magazine thru the office they are able to give my VIP members the digital version for FREE! The digital version will save some wear and tear on your magazine and will be UPDATED in June, July and August giving you all the latest information all the way up until the start of the season! This bonus will not be available if you buy the magazine after May 31st. Another huge benefit of the digital version is that it will be available just days after we send the magazine to the press so you can read the magazine BEFORE it is even printed!

Get FOUR Months of Phil Steele Plus, a $76 value ABSOLUTELY FREE!!

Phil Steele Plus is the website of information that I created for my own use. During the football season I need to have all the latest numbers updated and at my fingertips every week. We started putting the information up on Phil back in 2009 so that I could have reference to everything I needed on one site for when I am breaking down games or doing radio or TV shows. We have added information each year and improved the site each year. Here is what is available on every team page.

Up to date stats and game grades for each team color coded in red and green with Green for Good numbers and red for Bad. You can actually scroll down all the way to 2009 and get each year’s stats in that fashion.

Individual player stats updated on a game by game basis (fantasy players love this) and once again these numbers are not only for the current year but since 2009. Want to see how a certain player does against a certain team? The information is at your fingertips.

Box Scores/Play by Play for EVERY game. College Press Box allows us to download the actual box scores for every game and we put them on the site right next to the game under the Box category. I go thru the play by play of EVERY game every week and you not only have access to this year’s box scores but all Box Scores since 2008.

Start Charts – We update the Start Charts all season long for each team. Many of the school websites do not even list Start charts but we have them updated and you can go back and get Start Charts since 2009 for every team.

Team Info back to 1988 – Want to know who was the coach of the team?, what the record and stats were for each team and where they finished in the conference each year. It is in on one back with stats, records and coaches back to 1988.

Last 47 years Game by Game Spreads and Scores – I have been keeping track of the Vegas Point spread and scores on every game since 1976. We have the last 47 years Scores and Spreads for every team. Want to know the last time your favorite team was a 20+ point underdog. You can look it up in seconds. Every line that was posted on every game since 1976!

Team leaders the last 22 years – Which players led your favorite team in Passing, Rushing, Receiving and tackles since 2001 for all teams.

NFL Draft History – We have EVERY draft pick ever for every team! The first draft was 1936 and we have every player selected in every draft for every team including what round and overall pick they were.

Last 26 years Matchups for every game this year – Want to see what happened the last 26 years for any matchup this year. If it is a first meeting, we show you. If the teams played 5 times in that span each game is listed. If the teams met all 25 years, we show you all 25. Green is for wins, the spreads and stats for each meeting are listed as well. How many times the home team won straight up and ATS, how many upsets, etc. It is all listed for every game.

I have invested over 100,000-man hours thru the years making sure all this information is at my fingertips each week and continue to invest time each week to keep it updated. Phil Steele Plus is $99 for the year or $19 per month. You get FOUR MONTHS or a $76 value FREE with the VIP Bundle. You get the months of June, July, August, and September absolutely free.

Phil Steele’s 2023 FCS Magazine is yours FREE ($25 value)!

This year the FCS magazine returns! I have printed FCS magazines in the past and lost money on it every time. We have tons of FCS information on the website and update the stats weekly. This year the FCS magazine returns in a digital format! We will have two full pages on every team and here is a complete blog on the FCS for this year! (CLICK HERE Link available Thursday 4/12/23) You can become an instant expert on all 128 FCS teams by getting the magazine for just $25. The great news is with the VIP deal the digital magazine is FREE as is 4 months access to the Phil Steele Plus FCS site!

First Three Issues of Inside the Pressbox ($60 value) FREE!

My work does not stop when the magazine goes to the press. I immediately start working on the upcoming season matchups. During the season I put out a weekly newsletter called Inside the Pressbox. In each issue of Inside the Pressbox I give a complete one page writeup of every game for the week with a projected score and some Key Selections. The newsletter also has my computer projected box score with yards rushing, yards passing and points for each team. I live in Ohio, and they just made sports betting legal here as they have in many other states. A huge benefit to getting the first four months is there are over 100 matchups of FBS vs FCS and I will have each matchup completely analyzed for you with score forecasts. Your best value is not wagering on the big marquee games of the week but finding value in games where the public has little information on the teams. Last year I had 80+ game written up the first couple of issues! You will get my forecast on the season’s first 220+ plus games and you get it all for FREE. Those that took advantage of the VIP bundle before March 31 got FOUR issues ($80 value) FREE but you still get 3 full issues with over 200 writeups and mu computer forecast on each.
