mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
I thought Taylor Lewan had a shot for the second team, but I guess not.
Not a very good showing for the Big Ten
Nothing is working right now.
No matter how many negative comments are posted, no matter how many negative points are given, the CC and DB posts just keep coming. Almost every 30 minutes it seems, somebody goes "hey....I have a really unique thought on the whole CC issue or I wonder if DB thought of this before now I better let the world know of my amazing insight" and posts a thread. And every 31 minutes the board goes nuts, negs the hell out of the poster while the following happens. First MGoshirt will post a funny picture and comment on the beat down sure to follow. And then Hackney will post his air raid thing. And then I'll post an animated GIF of a guy beating a dead horse. And then somebody will say "why are you reading the thread if you don't like the topic". And lastly a lot of negative comments will be made about the poster's thinking process. As predictable as night. But instead of this reaction slowing the posts down, they actually seem to be picking up steam.
So here's my idea to try and stop them. Every day the Mods should put in the diary section the daily CC/DB scorecard. In it would be a chart (yes charts) of the previous day's threads on CC & DB topics, the poster's name and their respective before and after point total. Perhaps if people saw that those scores on the board every day they might...just MIGHT...ask themselves do i really want to put my new and completely original thought up before hitting save.
These are desperate times gentlemen. If you've got a better idea please let me know so the Mods have some idea on how to stop these threads from completely burying the board under the collective weight of their posting.
I thought it was odd Vlad wanted to transfer to a school way away from home for a team with a lame duck coach. This report from ESPN says he will be looking around again. I loved this guy from the moment he signed, but it doesn't appear he has ever recoverd from that knee injury. Hopefully he figures it all out.
UPDATE: A day after earning a new commitment (see below), Colorado head coach Jon Embree lost two. But that wasn't because the recruits had changes of heart.
Embree obviously has an idea for how he wants to fill his depth chart, and the new head man pulled two scholarship offers that were given under former coach Dan Hawkins.
Embree also told potential transfer Vlad Emilien, who last played at Michigan, that he would not be needed at safety next season.
You can't fault the coach for taking control of his program, although it's tough for a recruit to be told he no longer has a scholarship less than two months before signing day.
As we predicted, the fact that four-star quarterback Brock Berglund remained committed to new coach Jon Embree has paid off on the recruiting trail.
This news comes following the Boulder Daily Camera's report that Embree hired away Cal offensive line coach Steve Marshall to join the Buffs staff in the same capacity.
