couldn't you just make one widget instead of making like 50.

Yeah, that'd be better. Select the team you want to follow on the back and show the schedule on the front. Release updates as you add new teams.

Twisted - I did just make one but then I started getting emails from all over the country asking me to build one for their team. I'm not making these for fun, they're for the college football fans.

Fifty? No way, maybe just the Top 10. The basic problem is each team is about 200K, with 50 teams you're talking about a pretty hefty widget.

Powermac99 - What the fans like is their college team logo on the Dashboard. The schedule is too large to be displayed all the time, if you can show me some code to dynamically change the front AND back of a widget, I'll be happy to combine them - much easier to maintain that way.

What I'd do is only use the back as a means for changing the team you're tracking and then use the front for both the schedule and the logo. Use the onClick event and the CSS display rule to switch back and forth between the logo and schedule.

Powermac99 - Thanks for the tip, I'll see if I can get it working this week. I think people would like a conference widget, for example they might want to compare an conference opponents schedule or record.

Unfortunately if I just put out a release for each team added, as you suggested, it will still be the same numbers of posts. I had six widget updates this weekend which I did NOT post due to the negative comments from other developers, the updates only available from my website.
