Installed latest version of forum software, had a large number of incompatibilities with older version, unfortunately needs to be a clean reboot.  I did attempt to import users from last iteration.  There seems to be a login bug where you have to click the login link and go to the login page to get in. Not sure why yet.

Michigan is the State of College Football.  Michigan... State.  See what I did there?

The reboot means that the record of my correctly picking every single college football game since 2007 is now, sadly, lost.

Phut tha wuk?!

The darned thing wouldn't let me in the usual way. So I had to add a number to my name. Of course there was only one number to use.

Although some would point out that my posts would sometimes(or always depending who was talking)require a number 2 designation.

https://n.rivals.com/news/take-two-is-pruitt-s-recruiting-success-with-vols-a-surprise-


THE STORYLINE

 
Tennessee continues to stay hot on the recruiting trail, and July was a particularly excellent month for the Volunteers.
First-year coach Jeremy Pruitt and his staff landed commitments from three four-star commitments in OL Chris Akporoghene . The Vols went to Florida, Georgia and North Carolina, respectively, for those three impact players and continue to haul in top prospects leading up to the season.
Tennessee is currently fourth in the SEC team recruiting rankings, behind only Alabama, Texas A&M and Georgia, the top three recruiting classes in the entire country. The Vols are No. 12 nationally.
This recruiting success comes with a new coaching staff in place - maybe a lot of hope is running through Knoxville - but also after the Vols didn’t win a single SEC game last season.
So, is Pruitt’s early success on the recruiting trail a total surprise?

College is supposed to be where the smart people are Shaw. If you and other schools aren't bright enough to manipulate the system then maybe you/they should get some extra tutoring.

So you want him suspended without pay? Punishment before conviction? There are contractual issues with that kind of thing.

If he knew about it and said as much to the OSU brass he's probably as good as gone anyways.

If the OSU brass put him on leave without first talking to him there's maybe a sliver of a chance he sticks.

I finally resorted to the same thing.  I tried to get on about once a day with my old login and it would not let me register a new user with the same name...so...
