[quote="frats, post:7, topic:1041"]I think this thread typifies why TJB might not want to keep this thing up. There was some good information about why we can't just take any JuCo that we choose, it it only takes a few posts to turn into an "Ed Bashing" thread. I used to love coming here, and I'm perfectly fine with opposing viewpoints to my own as it gives something to discuss. However, as of late, this place has taken a huge turn for the worse. It's too bad.[/quote]Please tell me what was wrong with what was said. Both comments are the truth not opinions. It is what it is. Doesn't have success rate of developing players or keeping around ones he brings in. All we were saying is if Ed can fix this he wouldn't have to worry about not being able to get JC players in . I forgot it's an opinion that doesn't have me crapping blue & white so it's not allowed.If you can tell me what is false about either statement I will gladly apologize.
If this was one particular thread that headed in this direction, then you’d have a point. However this board has reached the point where every thread is negative/attacking Ed or the players/attacking the administration/attacking other posters. You make a thread about difficulties with JuCo’s, and we hear about how Ed can’t develop or recruit players. You make a thread about next year’s schedule, and we hear about how all Ed will care about is trying to save his job, or how we can’t win anyways because we were 3-13 this season. If you make a thread about Taran Buie, you’ll hear about how he’s making a terrible choice coming to PSU because it’s a sinking ship. You make a thread about next year’s lineup/squad, and you’ll just hear about how it doesn’t matter because we don’t have a post presence and Ed can’t coach them anyways.
We’re coming off a 3-13 season in the Big Ten and just lost a starter and a two backups, so it’s obviously not going to be all positive around here. However, you talk about how you’re not “crapping blue & white”. Who around here is? Everyone is disappointed, but the problem with you and many others is that you bring your crap into every single post, attack anyone that doesn’t agree with you by calling them names like “apologist” or “kool-aid drinker” or some other derogatory name. And just spew complete negativity in every single post. I simply commented that this is the type of stuff that I’m sure that TJB hates, and I won’t be at all surprised if this board is no longer if things continue heading in this direction. I’d love to give a donation to keep things going, however I’m getting the feeling that it may not be worth it to Tim with the direction things have headed here.
