Overview: Lindy's has retained the same cost, page count, and layout over the last several years. As in previous years, coverage is more conference-heavy (more per-conference material) than comparable magazines, and has more feature articles than Athlon. In terms of prediction accuracy, Lindy's stands tied for 6th of 8 publications over the last five years.

Per-team information: a full page for all I-A teams. Most of the space is devoted to discussion of prospects for the coming season. The discussion is not terribly detailed. A list of projected starters is given, past year's schedule/results and current year's schedule.

Per-conference information: all conferences get at least two pages' coverage. Included are: projected order of finish with short comments on each team, two-deep all-conference teams, and top ten NFL talent. The BCS conferences have four pages of coverage, with expanded discussion of "big games" throughout the year, a three-deep all-conference team, and a page of recruiting information.

National information: a ranking of all I-A teams with a few paragaphs discussion on each member of the top 25; two-deep all-America team and lists of the top 5-25 players at each position; top ten national "units" (e.g., offensive lines); top 5-10 candidates for each individual award; top 25 recruiting classes with a few paragraphs on each team.

Recap (previous year) information: There are previous years' games and scores on each team's own page.

FCS information: four pages. Contains a top 25, a two-deep all-America list, and predictions of all FCS conferences with a short one-liner comment on each team.
