ProphetGoBlue, but whatever.
regarding new board / old board issue: i think that a few years ago there was a whole lot more to talk about as the program had made a massive change in direction from LC to RR, new players, coaches, strategies and that sort of thing. at the same time as the team was a disgusting ball of ineptitude, there were a few bright spots beginning to flicker, giving rise to so many "look on the bright side" type discussions. previously i think there was a 33/33/33 love/hate/wait and see split to the board, which due to a smaller readership, got some pretty nuanced and thoughtful and inquisitive discussions going. now, i think everyone is 100% behind hoke and the direction of the program, which is more in line with the previous 25 years of the program pre-RR.
also, previous years we had a villain in the free press. a much hated whipping boy. while everyone here hates urbz and MarkD, they are still doing their jobs and we can't say much about their success at this point vs UM. the freep, otoh, was just a witch hunt.
