http://www.cfbstats.com/ used to publish awesome, comprehensive statistics for college football as CSV's. It looks like all their links (including from the blog post announcing opening their data) now point to http://coachesbythenumbers.com/sportsource-college-football-data-packages/ which is, I presume, is no longer free. Their sample file shows what they used to offer, does anyone know of something similar? I'd be happy with old data so long as it has the same type of stuff as that sample.

this data is now hosted on open data se's datahub.io account:
I have endpoints built for all this historical data at slingscore.com (free) :)
