    Fellow AllBuffs,

    Football is right around the corner and that means The Junta goes into In-Season Mode. This means a few things for you, our loyal comrades in arms:


    1. The Football board is for CU football related posts. Limit the threadjacks. Limit the off-topic stuff. Posts that don't follow the roadmap will find themselves arbitrarily relocated to the Island and other locales. Inside jokes and other circle jerks should be conducted in other forums.

    2. The Football recruiting board is our most "serious" forum. Don't clutter it up with crap. Don't attack players or recruits. Don't go sideways in your discussions. Recruits and their families read this forum. Pretend you are at dinner at your girlfriend's parents' house for the first time and you really don't want to make a bad impression.

    3. There will be much stricter enforcement of the Terms of Service, which you can read for yourselves, than in the off-season. Trolls can be amusing to toy with and we may even keep a few around, but if they cease to amuse us or cross our lines, they will be smitten without hesitation or mercy. The Junta maintains complete discretion in how we handle TOS violations. If you are just here to cause trouble, you're going to get popped.

    4. Remember that this is a site by and for CU fans. Be careful and respectful about how you speak about players and coaches. They read the boards, too. Let's have fun.

    GO BUFFS!

    Long Live the Glorious Junta!

    Death to all who oppose us!

    Why is it more important in-season? I'd think that with less going on in the football world, more people would be lurking here off-season, so it would be at least as important to take care then. Not to mention, it's mature - a four letter word here. :smile2:

    Serious question (yes ... I can be serious :haha:)


    What about threads about other teams/games? I know they were in the Pub last year ... but as I recall, the b-ball forum last year gradually evolved into a generic college b-ball forum with threads about other teams and games. Should we have a separate forum for CFB in general, and the one for CU FB ... or should the CU one be for all CFB posts?

    I really don't have a preference ... just want to know where to post. I should think there will be a lot of interest for example in the Michigan-Alabama game that follows the CU game on Saturday (hell ... Creatini could have a full thread on that game just talking to himself :lol:) ... should that be relegated to the Pub, or somewhere else?

    Whatever the decision is ... I will obey. Viva el junta! (or is it la junta ... I took French in school :huh:)

    L_Buff,

    We will have threads in here on other games. All college football stuff goes in here. Just keep it to one thread. "Official USC vs Notre Dame game thread" or whatnot.

    I think I'm going to do the "Rep Challenge" threads again this year where there are 10 games with confidence points to be assigned each week. Winner gets rep from everyone who entered.

    From what I remember from HS AP Spanish, it's "la" for the feminine. Doesn't matter if it's "el" (the masculine) they're all a bunch of women anyway. :lol:

    Thanks for the reminder, liver.

    Wasn't anything particular that he said. It was just more of the same. With going into in-season mode and picking up so many new lurkers who could become members this time of year, it just wasn't good for the board to have him around.

    I'd personally gotten to the point where he, as a self-admitted troll, was making much of the football forum unreadable. This wasn't a good place to talk Buffs football with him present.

    good time to point out our 1* and 2* mods have really hit the off season conditioning hard and really think this is the year that they really pop.

    This is also a serious question while I gear up for the season: A while ago, they changed the categories from Div 1A and Div 1AA to FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) and FCS (Football Championship Subdivision...because they had playoffs and a champiship game). Now the FBS has playoffs and a championship game...it's even called The College Football Playoffs. So what the hell are we now?? FCFPS (Football College Football Playoffs Subdivision)? If I get a vote it would be something crazy like - Div 1A and Div 1AA.

    *sorry if this posts all weird, I'm on the ship and the interweb connectivity is other than optimal.

    Pretty sure 'circle jerks' and 'inside jokes' = redundant.
