    after how many threads, tweets, and speculations over the past 5 or so years (for some even longer) this place is now a ghost town.

    Habits are hard to break so I still find myself checking for something to come along. Anything.

    Sigh-
    Cue the "One Shining Moment" montage...

    We'll always have Jock Jams though to remember the good times by.

    Pretty much. I still check periodically but am ready to accept and have moved on. If we are stuck here instead of blasting it let's try to make it the best league possible, who knows, maybe with the right additions it'll turn into a P6. Doubtful, but never know. In the meantime, let's figure out football and get rolling.

    Side note, I'm hoping for a car wash update. Been too quiet on that front!

    If it makes you feel any better....if/when our #1 desired conference landing spot (B1G) is going to expand, you will not hear about it via internet rumors, reports on ESPN, or public displays and presentations to the conference. There will a sparse rumor or two within 24 hours of their expansion, and then it will happen. But it will be crickets and tumbleweeds leading up to that point.

    Will that help you sleep better at night?;)

    For some reason, I read this thread and immediately imagined Jim Valvano saying, "Don't give up....don't ever give up..."

    I'll take any UConn publicity on ESPN we can get that isn't about our football woes.

    I did read that "P6" would be worn as helmet stickers.....

    Good idea...maybe the Big 12 and ACC can add "SEC" stickers to their helmet.
