I humbly suggest the next step in the MGoEmpire be a BuckeyePlanet-style forum. For those who have yet to venture to the Dark Side that is the Ohio State interwebs, I shall provide a link. Please shower to cleanse yourself before returning to the MGoShire.
Reasons why this will work:
1. There is a huge void for a free, organized forum for Michigan Athletics. Brian's current forum is functional but lacks the firepower necessary to make it really take off.
2. There are a cadre of MGoDenizens who would be willing to moderate, organize, and generally keep the forum professional.
3. It will be a link jackpot. When I Google recruits, I very frequently see the BuckeyePlanet thread rank highly.
4. You could still keep the MGoBoard sidebar which I'm betting drives much of the current board's traffic.
That is all. Congrats again Brian on your MGoAcquisition
