  1. After much soul-searching and deliberation I have made the difficult decision to depart the forum permanently. I can not be part of a community where what was posted yesterday is not only allowed to stand but encouraged by other members. What was written was the most disturbing and disgusting comment I've ever read on the site. I was honestly stunned the poster was not universally confronted and the comment not immediately denounced by all. This was an eye-opener for me and forced me to reconsider everything I believed about the forum. I draw the trash talking line at child molestation, I guess others don't. Thank you to the few who did speak out against it. It gives me some hope that good people still exist. I want to thank @Joe Bryant and David for allowing me to be part of the community for these past 15 years. We had some fun times, didn't we? I'll get these out of the way: "Nipsey wait". I will not. "See you tomorrow, Nipsey" You won't. He'll just be an alias now. Not happening. One small opening for a once-in-a-while return would be the possibility of more concerts as I enjoy those nights, but you can be certain that this is my final non-karaoke post ever. It's a sad day for me but I'm content to go out after this last week with those three improbable SU victories, the Whaler talk and all the other great stuff we chatted about. I'll remember the good times. When I'm finished writing this post I'll hit submit reply, sign out, close the browser, remove the bookmark and never again read another (non-karaoke) word of the forum. No need to reply, I won't see it. Take care, guys. Live well. ~~~~~~ ▄▐▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▌ ~~~ ▄▄██▌▌ ▄▄▄▌▐██▌.▌ ███████▌.▌▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▌ ▀(O)▀▀▀▀▀▀▀(O)(O)▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀(@)(@)▀▀▘
  2. Ridiculous. We didn't even play zone exclusively when I was a student. We played man and zone. The school was known for high-flying transition alley-oops when I was there. The notion that he "built his empire off zone defense" is absurd. It's been so good in a handful of recent years, casual observers think it's all he is. They have no idea what they're talking about. And the "cheating stuff"...didn't call a parent after a player smoked weed, two players ran ymca clinics and got paid tens of dollars for times they didn't show and some idiot assistant wrote fab melo's make-up paper because he couldn't speak the language. 8 year ncaa investigation 8 YEARS to uncover those three infractions for which he and the school paid a monumental price in sanctions, vacated wins and reputation. I can't let posts like this just go by. smh
  3. Not sure if you saw it but Jim Carrey painted an unflattering portrait of the press secretary Sarah Sanders. It was art. He tweeted a picture of the painting. One of the first comments on that tweet was somebody showing a picture of Carrey's girlfriend who committed suicide, with a caption like "hey, is your girlfriend still dead?" Something close to that. That's about what Tobias did in this thread today. And Capella's endorsement of the Tobias tweet is exactly like the people who liked that dead girlfriend tweet. Anyone who would write something like that or condone it, they don't deserve to be conversed with. Yes, this is the worst thing ever seen on the board. Sad.
  4. I'm just sick. Have to step away for a bit because I don't want to do or say anything rash. Sad day and all because 7 over-achievers won a few basketball games.
  5. I'm sorry, when your response to trash talk is bring up a child molestation accusation, I don't think being upset about that has to do with being thinned skinned. The thread title indicated shtick and good times here, not what's happened here today or last week. I'm disgusted. I really am. I've never even debated reporting a post but I'm so repulsed by it and then appalled by Capella's seeming approval of something like that being written, I need to weigh next steps. This is probably the worst day in board history. Something needs to be done.
  6. Oh, it's legit. We have a great moment after 2 years in the wilderness, after everything we've had to deal with and you couldn't wait to take dump on it. A guy who "doesn't care" about the FSU basketball team, just couldn't wait to crap all over what was a joyful and triumphant moment for someone else. Probably literally pulled down your pants and defecated on the keyboard and what we read were the keys the feces hit. Don't need it. Go plop some posts to someone else. You've chosen to ignore content by Capella. Options
  7. Capella going back on ignore too. Not sure what happened to him the last few weeks.
  8. Last month the guy talks smack about a team coming off a national title eeking out a close game against a team dealing with scholarship restrictions, playing 6 guys, mostly freshman. He gets his comeuppance, I tell him about karma and he comes in here and posts that. Tells you all you need to know about that guy. Awful. People like him are almost always passive-aggressive too. Go back and read some of his posts. I'm just disgusted right now. Same guy who said something about SU grads waiting on him in Manhattan.
  9. "Man, can't believe you think i'd be upset." followed by a child molestation reference. Maybe the most passive-aggressive post in board history. Certainly one of the most disgusting.
  10. Crazy to think if Mike Hopkins doesn't (out of nowhere) take the Washington job this would have been Boeheim's final season. Narrative of this run and getting in to begin with would have been completely different. Hopkins bolts, New AD John Wildhack immediately extends Boeheim after last AD (who also bolted out of nowhere) said the post-sanctions agreement between Boeheim and the school was ironclad. Instead of these being his final games he gets to hang around, his son commits and he gets to coach the kid for the next 4-5 years. 73 years old and still going strong. Thank you Mike Hopkins for doing the right thing. What a week.
