I haven't chimed in here yet, but I'm really too busy in the summer at this point in my life to really stop by during the off-season. I've been to busy to even get the picks game going this year and since participation has been down, I wasn't planning on running it this year.

Once in a blue moon though I do like to go back and read some of the posts from 3, 5, even 10 years ago. I kind of like piecing together what was going on when in college football history by those posts. It would be a shame if they went away (for me anyway), so if there was any way to archive them and keep them around that'd be cool.

Also about message boards in general, they've basically been phased out by social media and comments sections on blogs / news sites. People go to Twitter for information and they can reply on there, or if they only have a little bit of something to say, they can leave a message and be on with their day. It doesn't do much for community-building online though.

Actually, that is a fairly good point.

Most Bloggers -- YouTubers -- Twitter Personalities -- have cross platform pages. Almost all with links to each other.

If someone had a YouTube/Twitter/Facebook something or other, they could put this forum up with tags, such as, for more information and further conversation on the subject, go to: whateverDerekcallthisLink

I personally do not have any social media, myself ... outside of my e-mail. [size=85](and here) [though, I've often been told I need a blog][/size]

Anyone else out there ..?

Just a report on the status so far.

Still working on making this happen. Getting our schedules together with Matt is tough. We will still use the same domain name, and if everything works, you should not notice a difference.

Go Dawgs! Heading to Athens this coming weekend to watch them play App State (hoping it's not Michigan Part 2).
They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.

Thanx a bunch, again Derek.

And here's to a good trip. I hope your Dawgs do get the win. Miami got Appy State last year, and many were predicting a tough game. But it was all hype; much as I expect this season.

Did you know..? Michigan's loss to Appalachian State was 10 years ago this upcoming weekend. And ppl still remember it. That game put App St on the map, as far as national interest is concerned. Nobody has taken them lightly since, either.

Georgia ought to be decent enough up front on the O-line to push `em back most of the game. My guess is they wear down App's D, and let the depth factor take over.

On-the-other-hand; it's game 1, and strange this have been known to happen --- which is why I put this game in the Predictions.

Thanks, Derek.

At the start of the season, always hoping all of our teams will be in the hunt.

Sorry, the delay is my fault. Was out of town for two weeks, got back for a week, and now I'm heading to San Antonio and then Houston for the next 1-2 weeks.

Don't worry, though. The board will stay up, and eventually we'll get it all transferred over!

Thanks Derek!!!

We've kind of maintained a small community and I come back every year to see the same faces. I used to talk college football in a lot of different places but this is the only place that ever stuck with me and I've grown fond of all the members.

Everything seems to have moved to twitter and Facebook where instant feedback and one liners rule the day. It makes me long for these forums more and more. Our members tend to bring concise and detailed explanations as well as depth to their conversations.

I've been circling but have just been busy. Bought a house a few months ago or should I say the bank bought a house and I get to rent from them for a long while. I'm living just north of San Marcos in Kyle TX now and got some sustained Tropical Depression weather. I opened the door and the dogs just looked at me like, go ahead, we promise not to shut the door and lock you out. So I threw them out in it and watched them prance around and do there stuff. I was rewarded by a shake shower and some damp furniture as I chased them around the house with a towel for a few days.

All in all, I got a lot of wind and rain but not much damage. Lost a few shingle tabs is all. Been glued to the TV worried about my fellow Texans in Houston and the surrounding areas.

Hope all is well....and that the rain passes.

We know that area well (I usually rent a place near Wimberly when visiting my wife's family).

Our family a little east of San Antonio has had rain and win...but only very minor damage.

All is well at home here in Austin. We're running air missions for FEMA, USAF, Coast Guard and Texas out of San Marcos down to Houston and Corpus for the next week, then moving next week to Houston once we can get supplies in and find an airport without damage that has fuel!

It's been 11 years since Oregon hosted Oklahoma and won. Ppl still remember that one too. This is the game that featured the imfamous onside kick and caused the Sooner fanbase to whine to unprecedented heights. Even David Boren, OU President demanded that the NCAA strike the game from their records. Ever since then my avatar on the SB Nation blogs has been the crying Oklahoma kid.
