    I'm not even sure you are the biggest Geek on this thread, don't forget that Kedsy admitted to scripting a coin flipping program to determine his college choice. That sounded like something one of the cast from the comedy series Big Bang.

    PS - Kedsy, I'm not trying to harsh on you, I thought it was a great story but it was a little on the geeky side.

    Well, yeah, I suppose I did go through a geeky phase. I also went through a beer-guzzling phase. Not sure either phase is over yet, though, which may or may not be a problem.

    As I see it they both go hand in hand. The geeky phase earns the money to pay for the beer guzzling phase and they both offset the other's perceived social limitations. If you're guzzling beer you can't be seen as too much of a geek and if you're a geek then you can't be seen as too much of a beer guzzler!

    Well, 5 of them already exist, though it took us about 2200 to get there. There are only 2 that are still missing from this thread...

    Clifton

    Does anyone know what kind of position he was given at Baylor? I saw an article that said he was pushing Duke so he could stay in Wall's inner circle. I assumed that Clifton would be at Baylor next year. He won't still be in Durham will he?

    OK - this is like the 50th post from someone who refuses to read the whole thread. So I'm wondering - anyone feel like going through the thread and doing a media synopsis of all the links?

    Funny, I was wondering the same thing!

    I put a tongue in cheek post on the John Wall thread last night, and it has disappeared. Several people have asked in the 112 thread where it is. There was nothing obscene or particularly critical about it... just a comment on a silly 112-page thread that basically was blather. Wall is going to make his decision; why are we obsessing about it?

    I would like to ask the moderators a question. I'm sure whoever removed it had a reason, but I would surely like to know what it is. And given that I am a regular poster on this board, wouldn't it have been simply polite to send me a private message explaining why this post was removed?

    I have always defended the work of the moderators here, but now I am beginning to question it a little. I know this is Julio's site, but if a post isn't obscene or offensive, why is it removed?

    I await a response eagerly.

    Thanks.

    I was trying to suggest last night... we can't expect anyone to go back and read through 112 pages... this thread has gotten out of control! The moderators were quick to remove my post last night but haven't been willing to edit this in any way. It would sure be a help if someone would go through and (1) leave in the links to various stories, but (2) remove the redundancies!

    We might get it shortened to 90 pages!

    Pray tell, how can you expect ANYONE to read all of a thread that has 2200+ posts prior to asking a question?

    Click. Read. Click next. Reaadd. Click next - reeaaad.

    There's also a search tool if you're looking for, or posting, something specific.

    Also, let's be honest with ourselves here. A complete newbie to the board has a reason for being 2200+ posts behind, but anyone that's around for a few months or more is likely nowhere near 2200 posts behind. Even if you don't keep up with the board, or this thread in particular, on a regular basis, "regulars" are still likely to be only a few hundred posts behind at most. Surely, someone can spend time catching up before issuing duplicate posts -- I do not think that is unreasonable.

    And you're wondering why?

    Just b/c a post isn't cruel or obscene doesn't mean it isn't counter-productive... That particularly post would have been inflammatory and definitely have added another few pages to the thread. It would have been more suited for the LTE where you are allowed to vent a little...

    We are really trying to keep some sanity in these last few days - OR months...
