This place has been quite chippy over the past couple days. Lots of infighting. I guess the offseason is taking its toll. Here's to happier times and football on Saturdays!
Yeah, chalk it up to the offseason and a serious starvation for football. Everything will work out for the better in a month or so.
At the very least, make it to practice in early August. I am so glad I am taking my vacation the end of July. Maybe the silly season will be over by then.
All is well on the OT board
I show you infighting Mr. Bates.
UTK66, you don't know what starvation is, you stuck-up elitist.
The only thing silly about this board is how anyone can take Bandit18 seriously.
And don't even get me started with Longhorn in dirtburglarland.
Btw, I've not seen any of this chippy attitude you guys are speaking of.
this week is the nadir of the sports year. it's almost enough to drive a man to watching MLS.
I blame it on the bad teeth Brits....and the heat.
I would argue the board is quite bit a more civil than anytime I can remember as a member. I suppose you were't around when topics like Garrett Gilbert, Jerry Gray, Jesus Shuttlesworth, and Blake Gideon were regular sources of many pretty nasty feuds.
It's often highly entertaining, as this board is primarily college educated, and profanity isn't allowed like a typical YouTube debate.
Guess I missed the drama, but have barely seen a thread title the last few weeks that would prompt me to open it so it must be the dead time of the year.
lol I watch a lot of MLS
on top of all of this, Mother Nature teased Central Texas all day yesterday. It reminded me of a few dates I have been on. I actually watched the last 15 minutes of the Wimbleton finals.
25 DAYS TO SUMMER CAMP!
Until the first loss
Cat-fighting is what my dad called it. And it's never of any worth. Sorry I participated in it.

I think it's the nature of the beast. Yeah, I get that we're all bored in the off season, but it's easy to be civil when everyone's new and are on new relationship behavior. As everyone gets to know each other better, it's a matter of time before personalities clash and bickering starts.
Disciplina praesidium civitatis
I cant wait till the season. If we start killing it ( like many of us believe they will ) all of the bickering will go away and all will be well.
Bobby I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that we havent had anything to get exited about since the second junior day.Its been a lot of bad news and what ifs.I know it's stressed me out and I could use another up vote party like whenA Shawn committed.I know Texas always starts fast and then things slow down.But this year seems different some how.But things will get better soon as football is near and we will all be happy when the Horns kick off.I have a really good feeling about this staff and team.I haven't felt this good about the team since 2009.Not comparing the two but I think they are going to be fun to watch.HOOKEM
That is because you guys refuse to discuss the serious OT matters. I do expect the "My dog is cuter than yours" thread to create some real controversy real soon though.
I read "breast" and was about to kick your bitty butt to the OT board. /smiley/
Buckhorn vs. LiOK
rumble in the jungle.
That ones a little one sided
No need to apologize. I didn't think anyone was too out of line (if there were any racist posts I thankfully missed those) and made for a fun, interesting weekend.
Nothing wrong with a little catfighting here and there. It can be therapeutic at times.
