+# College Football Widget
+
+College football is a [Dashboard Widget](http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/) for [Mac OS X](http://www.apple.com/macosx/) which provides the current football schedule for I-A and I-AA NCAA teams.
+
+You can choose the team of your choice from the preferences. The data and team
+logos are downloaded from [ESPN](http://www.espn.com).
+
+## Download
+
+[Download Now](https://github.com/smith/college-football-widget/blob/master/CollegeFootball.wdgt.zip?raw=true)
+
+This has been tested on Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.7, though other versions may work. Double-click the zip file that's downloaded. That should create a widget file. Double-click that to add the widget to your Dashboard.
+
+## History
+
+Version 2.0.0 - November 1, 2011
+
+* Complete rewrite.
+* Updated conferences and teams.
+
+Version 1.5.0 - November 15, 2010
+
+* ESPN Changed up their page layout, so fixed it to work with that.
+* The logic was completely rewitten to use JavaScript instead of Ruby.
+* New team logos directly from ESPN are used.
+
+Version 1.3.5 - November 14, 2008
+
+* Fixed bug that caused some Big 12 schedules to not display.
+
+Version 1.3.4 - September 22, 2008
+
+* Some display bug fixes.
+* Fixed the _stats_ link.
+
+Version 1.3.3 - November 3, 2007
+
+* Sometime in the past year, either Apple or Adobe somehow changed the way Flash movies load in Dashboard Widgets. Since then the team logos have not been loading correctly. They now are loaded in an alternative way. Because of this not all logos are currently displayed.
+* The team name is now displayed.
+
+Version 1.3.2 - December 2, 2006
+
+* The problem with showing the logos has been fixed. This has been tested on Mac OS 10.4.8 on PowerPC.
+* Cleaned up the Ruby script a little.
+
+Version 1.3.1 - November 19, 2006
+
+* A change on ESPN.com had caused the schedules to display incorrectly. This has been fixed.
+
+Version 1.3 - September 23, 2006
+
+* Follows Apple's new widget submission process.
+* The window is now large enough to accommodate twelve game seasons.
+
+Version 1.2 - October 8, 2005
+
+* The background image now has a subtle bit of shading.
+* If your clock is set to US Central, Mountain, or Pacific time, the game times will be in local time. All other timezones show US Eastern.
+* The Atlantic 10 conference teams now all have logos.
+* The schedule table is now center aligned.
+
+Version 1.1 - October 2, 2005
+
+* Now includes I-A and I-AA teams.
+* Added a team logo for Mississippi State.
+* Added a version.plist file so I know which version I'm using.
+
+Version 1.0 - September 26, 2005
+
+* Initial release.
+
+## Acknowledgements
+
+This widget would not be possible without the help and inspiration of others. Here are a few:
+
+* I decided to write this widget after seeing Justin Williams's [ Purdue Football](http://www.carpeaqua.com/archives/2005/09/10/purdue_football_dashboard_widget.php) widget. It's nice, but why not work for _every_ team?
+* [ESPN](http://www.espn.com) for making schedules and logos available and for not shutting this site down (yet).
+* [Alex Edelman](http://alexedelman.net/), for providing some excellent hints on making widget graphics.
+* Apple, for their excellent [Dashboard development resources](http://developer.apple.com/macosx/dashboard.html) and example widgets.

-<h4>Limitations and Bugs</h4>
-<p>This widget works, but is not finished. The remaining issues are as follows:</p>
-<ul>
-<li>Caching and automatic refreshing are not implemented. This means the only time the schedule is reloaded is when restarting or going to the preferences.</li>
-<li>The whole widget depends on web scraping, which means that the program breaks if ESPN
-changes their pages. So far this has not been a problem and the widget has worked for the 2005 and 2006 seasons.
-</li>
-<li>It could be prettier. And faster.</li>
-<li>Some I-AA teams do not have logos. This is true of both this widget and ESPN.com. I will manually add these gradually.</li>
-</ul>
-<p>Please <a href="/contact">contact me</a> if you have any more sugguestions, bugs, or ideas.</p>
-<h4>Acknowledgements</h4>
