    I could never sign in once they updated the site several years ago. I finally gave up and would check in to see what info was being passed around. Finally had to create a new account and I would assume other had the same issue, just a guess.

    Wow! Long time since my last post... I see a lot of the regulars checking in. I just got tired of college football being the NFL minor league and thuggy “students” that aren’t really, just people playing to get up into “the show”. Same for basketball.

    I guess now that Boren has retired, I can donate to the University again, isn’t that right Manatee?
    Lets see, Boren botches The Pride with Weizenhiemer’s recommendation, neither are around today, Boren begs Britt to come back, Britt rakes Boren over the coals and gets just about everything he possibly could to come back, The Pride is kicking butt and Boren is gone, oh and the painting is again “owned” by the original people.. How’d that work out for you Boren?

    This place is as empty as the Casa Blanca parking lot the day of the spring game. Ghost.

    LT is gone, this would be the time to overhaul this place and get some of the geezers and semi noobs back.

    i got a new job and basically couldn't get on during the day, but facebook, twitter and reddit didn't do this place any favors either.
    i do miss the jackassery of this place back in the day, but the new software is kinda bad. that was one of the things that kept me off other boards was how well vBulletin worked. i'm not sure if this is some newer version or what, but it's not the same.

    anyone seen doleo?

    I have not seen doleo at all. Didn't ever become FB friends with him, so I don't even remember his real name.

    On a more positive note, going to an older computer, with an older OS and older browser seems to speed up load times. Or maybe the board had improvements in the last few months. I think I'm going to give it a go in sticking around here. At least Phil has some nice pictures from the FAU game.

    I just assumed everyone here made the jump to LTs and then on to dirtburglars.

    I'm back... toured the other boards but my favorite thing to read was Badger's posts about meltdowns on other boards... I couldn't get enough of them.

    I haven't posted anywhere since this board declined. I just couldn't get interested in the other boards available.
    I would read the other boards but there was too much BS on them I couldn't get interested in signing up.
    I miss this place as the info posted was mostly civil and not foolish on the football forum.
    I am sorta hoping that this board will pick up again now that the other boards have gone away.
    Life has changed a lot and Im now too old to spend as much time on the forum as I used to. But it was nice to have a place to get quick updates on the football team.

    What did it for me was three things:
    1. All those folks that came over from that other Sooner fans board that shut down and immediately proceeded to trash this board...it took 8 months before someone had the sense to permaban them all.
    2. The mass amnesty for a lot of permabanned posters...
    3. The demise of the tailgates...of course, they de-evolved into Dean practically paying for and doing everything while other bigwigs from this board free-loaded

    But yah...time to pull the plug...it was fun when it was good...but that ended nearly a decade ago.

    I have posted under the name Oregonsooner and later PDXsooner from around October 2000 until I don’t know when. For me, this was a way to connect with OU fans and get inside information on the team and then I dabbled in some back-and-forth here and there. So many ways to get information on the Internet now I just kind of lost interest. For what it’s worth. Good to be back here if only temporarily.

    It turned into a soap opera. It was like women bickering back and forth. Used to be fun before that. Sad.

    JKM leaving the board is when I stopped. Or at least him only posting in the donors area. His breakdowns were the reason I stayed through all the bullshit.

    Does he post anywhere anymore?
