As a fan of an opposing B1G team, you guys have been very cool and I appreciate the hospitality. You're much more civil to each other than Ohio State fans are to one another on Bucknuts.
Since I haven't been posting here long, I'm not sure if posters from other boards have come on to VOTH but I think you guys need to get ready for the swarm during football season. Given that some of the Legends schools don't have boards on 247, you may have been insulated from that kind of activity. For example, some Bucknuts posters have been known to run roughshod over other boards, usually the week prior to a game. The vast majority of us don't play that game and tend to stay in our own sandbox but a one or two will drop in on an upcoming opponent's board to see what's going on there, then run back to Bucknuts with a report and before you know it, there are 25 Buckeye fans with nothing better to do spewing venom. Since OSU and Iowa haven't played for a couple years, you haven't been exposed to it but since you've been cool about me posting here, I wanted to give you a heads up. Forewarned is forearmed.
But the turtle's fans are the guys to watch out for. Maryland hasn't even joined the B1G yet and they've already had some epic duels swarming OSU, PSU and MSU's boards. They're are crazy and hate the world. They've done nothing and yet think they're the cat's meow, as if they're coming over to save the B1G from destroying itself.
Your right, but what happened goes a little deeper I think. After his first post the other day several of us welcomed him and told him how much better 247 is than tos and how posters are treated much better as well. Soon after that he gets ripped. I think he trusted our opinions and felt lied too. This thread was him letting us know how he felt about it. Thats how I see it anyway.
Perhaps an extended timeout will put him into a more amiable demeanor when it comes to welcoming n00bs to our board?
I accept that and see your point. Maybe I should of said "has a trash delivery to his well thought out comments" instead of "talks trash".
I is a shame that with only a few days till signing day, this is the most active thread on the site. Can we just agree it could have been done differently and get back to the business at hand. GO HAWKS!!!
Stop construing this as a personal attack, it wasn't. Hearsay is inherently untrustworthy and that's all this poster offered. End of story.

Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
Darn, I opened this hoping to see "Just Another Bar......Rafaeli" picture in a bikini.
I would believe you but for the sarcasm. By the way, allow me to introduce myself before you interject between me and another poster.
Did you see that commercial she did for Go Daddy that's running in the Super Bowl? It was on the Today Show this morning.
As a matter of fact, I did. What was even better was the interview she did talking about the commercial. She said it was a dream of hers to walk up to some guy in a bar that would never be her type and start making out with him and this commercial let her do it for real.
The kid was interviewed too. He said it took over 40+ takes to get it right. They asked him if he kept messing up on purpose! He said no, but I bet he was lying. I certainly would.
That's hilarious! Do you have a link to the commercial? Or will we have to wait till Sunday?
Here's one place you can find it:
Yes, those Go Daddy people really know how to use sex to their advantage. This year's Super Bowl wheeze is no exception. Read this article by Chris Matyszczyk on CNET News.
are we sure that is not SNL Pat in the commercial?
Wrestling owns the Olympics
Thanks for the link. That guy's popularity just skyrocketed!
There's another version with tongue. Seriously. They're not running that one in the Super Bowl.
He actually does look a lot like Pat.
....the redheaded version
Honestly, I was not trying to be sarcastic. I was a little crude but at the time I felt my words said what I needed to say. I put the emoticon in there to lighten the moment, but looking back I believe it only added to the accidental sarcasm. For that and more, I'm sorry. You are right that I should know you before I speak for or about you. Looking back once more I probably should have, and I wish I would of, used the word "rough" instead of "trash." Hopefully we can start over, all of us. As you get to know me you may see moments where I am serious, then in the next moment I crack a joke. That's just my way of trying to keep things pleasant and on a happy note.
One more thing, I agree that sometimes the truth does hurt, I also think that some of that hurt can be avoided with careful and thoughtful delivery. In my view that trait is worth working towards because raising families, having friends or gaining possible new ones sometimes require it. In my view it's the least we should do.

I just went over to visit your board for the first time this morning...(been surfing around looking for threads/comments on wrestling, and in particular those that would have been discussing last night's meet in I.C. between PSU-UI)...and I notice that the Bucknuts site doesn't allow non-members to post comments.
What gives with that??
If our board has the same rules, then forgive my ignorance...but I'm pretty sure we don't. I think we welcome all 247 contributors and give them full posting privileges. Todd rarely, if ever, breaks out the ban-hammer, so I really hope your trolls refrain from coming over here...especially, if we are not given the same opportunity and allowed to reciprocate on your boards.
We've already experienced a Bucknuts invasion here a while back.
I hope it was dealt with decisively, and now anyone with a bucknuts affiliation is thoroughly screened before being allowed to post here?
iowabuckeyes has been a rational, respectful and thoughtful contributor, but reading thru some of the threads over there it definitely seems a lot more like what Scout has devolved into, rather than what we've come to expect here on VotH.
