Well, I didn't say we should tear you apart and feed you to the wolves, either.
Look, do I think what this board says about Miami will be, to use your phrase, "the last factor" in an ACC decision on us. No, of course not. Didn't say that and don't think that.
But we are in a somewhat desperate time in our programs' existence, and I am of the opinion that doing anything with any risk of annoying someone who may contribute to a decision is something that I, personally, don't want to see done. I can't tell you what you can or can't do, but that is my opinion.
And, I know that even saying the following categorizes me as a dinosaur to anyone under thirty, but there is ample evidence out in the real world that people harm their own interests on a daily basis by their use of social media, not paying enough consideration to the consequences of what they post by virtue of the reactions and uses of information by others.
I love UConn sports. I would rather not see posts that might harm it.
I completely agree with BL on this one. Social media is completely undervalued on the impact it has on people's opinions. I often see comments on this board that make me wince. A number of time I have been close to leaving a post like BL's, but I figured I would get the typical "yeah like message boards really impact these decisions" posts. Which...is exactly what happened after BL posted.
These comments probably won't impact any decisions....but on the small chance it may have some influence, I would rather not take the chance.
