@rivalsmike: Heard from great source that 5 star DB Jabrill Peppers is now heavy lean to #Michigan and that #OhioState and #LSU have dropped on list.

'Jabrill Peppers - Heavy UM Lean' or something to that effect.

EDIT:  But this is great news if true!  I have a feeling this is shaping up to be yet another extremely solid class.

Heard from a source that Bubonic Plague is not a serious threat in my neighborhood.

Yay, my headline is as informative as yours.  Great news nonetheless.

Informative thread titles are a courtesy and the way things are supposed to be done around here. From Brian's Board FAQs (which you should read if you haven't already):

What should I title my threads? Please make your thread titles as informative as possible: "Justin Feagin" is bad. "Justin Feagin leaving the team?" is good.

The point is that whenever somebody posts a bad title, people spend the entire comments section bitching about it rather than discussing the content. It's one bad title on the board, it takes one comment to let OP know they should probably change it. 

Either way, it's literally 30 seconds out of your day to click the thread and see what the deal is. I know everyone who reads this blog is super important though so I understand if people can't be bothered to read a one-sentence thread (never mind that they find the time to write a snarky reply, making the comments unreadable). I could see people complaining if the entire board was full of bad titles, but people blow this way out of proportion. 

I don't see how it's being "courteous" (that is what this is about, right?) to derail some poor guy's (or gal's) thread just because they made an honest mistake.

Anything could have happened with Jabrill Peppers.  He could have committed elsewhere.  He could have named leaders.  This could be a link to an article I've already read.  He could have torn his ACL.

You say that it's 30 seconds to click on it, but it's 30 seconds for EVERYONE who clicks on it.

Or it would take 2 seconds for one person (the OP) to add a word or two to the title.

Considering the fact that it's an expectation of the board - and posted as such - your argument doesn't really hold water.  The OP did it wrong.  It's not for the OP to decide, nor for you; it's up to Brian and the mods, and they think differently.  Things like this should be avoided in the future.  That's really all that needs to be said.

You're missing the point.  The thread title is bad and should be changed.  We just don't need 35 people making that point every time a thread title sucks.  It makes otherwise interesting threads unreadable (which I'm now contributing to in this one).  Ideal process when Guy A creates thread with bad title:

  • Guy B suggests in a comment that Guy A changes title.
  • Guy A changes title.
  • Onward.

I know the title is bad and should be changed. My point is that it's a minor inconvenience that people make way too big of a deal about. Point the offending OP to the FAQ, politely let them know their title is uninformative, and move on to discussing the content of the post. Being an asshole to somebody just discourages users from posting and makes the community seem petty and dickish. Just my opinion though.

Jabrill Peppers are a nice replacement for Jalapeños when making salsa.

Oh, wait, what? I couldn't tell from the thread title you were talking about the football player.

He's an arrogant ass hat, but, a usually correct arrogant ass hat. This is his region of the country, so he has a lot of contact people with a lot of the top programs. I understand why people hate the guy, but his track record with this stuff is pretty damn good.
