    It makes me sad that we can't have nice things. It would be wonderful to know that seeing a certain thread at thr top of the board meant actual news and not endless riffing and rehashing of third party low content.

    Anyway, before Fishy nukes the entire board for making a mess of his CR Zen Garden. Here is a thread to comment on any PTST's. You can link to the original if you need to.

    My first pitch, has there been a PTST yet?

    It doesn't matter, there's simply no way to avoid people making comments about tweets in any thread. It's already been violated like eight times.

    Violated by the man himself. I suppose he could delete replies to keep it down

    It amazes me that grown men cannot read a rule that says "no commentary" and follow it. Jesus.

    On topic: I feel my usual sense of dread re: all things conference realignment.

    After he realized he's truly hopeless on here unless he wants to come off as a despot.

    Commentary is inherent in the very nature of threaded message board software.

    Fishy is using it in a way it was not designed for. Not at all surprised he didn't get the results he wanted.

    It is admirable that Fishy tried to set guidelines for that thread...but it was do
    Gee I don't know...it says don't post commentary so you don't post commentary...it's not that hard. It's hard to believe people are unable to resist the urge to comment. A little restraint isn't a bad thing.

    It would be nice to have a thread where there is actual content...and not the same discussions from the same posters over and over. Plenty of other threads to do that.

    It's not hard to honor a request that we can all benefit from, is it?

    I posted once facetiously because others were doing it, waited a while to even do that. Otherwise, I would have followed. :rolleyes:

    At least the Big 12 fans are noticing the market we provide now. Some do think we present more than Cincy and Houston (which is obvious).

    He wrote letters on July 12th -- he didn't come public with this -- it was unearthed. Take it with a grain of salt.

    This is the proper use of the PTST's Commentary thread, assuming it is already posted in the primary PTST thread. Do we need to hold class?

    I'm a big believer in the rule of law. If you're not supposed to do it, don't do it.
