I first began reading back in 2009 in order to learn more about the spread option offense that Rodriguez was installing. It was so interesting to me and I had absolutely no idea what I was watching. I probably never thanked Brian et al. for learning me up right. It definitely made watching much more enjoyable, even if the team was losing. I loved watching the offense in action.
Of course, then the "CC" posts started happening and JHackney and I decided to become douchey posters. I think we mostly did it because the endless threads on the topic took away from what we enjoyed about the site and made us all look like every other idiotic fan base. Thankfully that is all over and most people seem to have moved on. Now I visit for the information, obviously, but also for the comraderie and friendship. Unfortunately, some people haven't forgotten my douchebaggery and still hold grudges.
