It’s the Waiting that will kill you

9 months 23 days. 15 days. 138 days. These to me represent what is coming up in life that is importat. Each day is different and has a different meaning. From a wedding, to the Start of Football, to the end of my project(with a hope of a contract extension) there is a lot to look forward to in the next several months in my life. But I am here to focus on that most holiest of seasons-Football. I have lived, breathed, and bled(and cried some tears) Panther Purple and gold for 8 years now. From the highest of highs(San Marcos, Texas, Oklahoma City) to the lowest of lows Chattanooga a week after San Marcos, 2007 quarter finals, and yet every year it seems the Panthers take my hopes up to the high that this finally may be the year and every year have dashed them jsut the same. So why my friends do we subject ourselves to such punishment. Why do we have all but one of our teams end the year on a loss? Why do we come back year after year where only ONE of our teams will have its dream at the end of the year. One world, happiness. We as human creatures are naturally positive(well except D1B) and love the happy feelings so much that we subject ourselves to constant heartbreak in order to feel that one year of happinesxs whne our team finally puts it all together and gets that shiny piece of hardwar that vaults our team to the pinnacle of FCS.

Good luck to all the players out there this year, GO FCS!

CS Weekly Update: Issue #5

It’s been three long weeks since the last update due to me being “away” from the computer in Beautiful Kauai.  It was an amazing trip full of wonderful memories, activities and scenery.  Snorkeling with sharks and turtles, boogie boarding nice waves, eating amazing food, and kayaking up rivers to secret waterfalls.  It was a very nice getaway and break from the daily grind, but now I am back!  I was a little saddened by the lack of people that missed me though, I guess I should have said I was retiring rather than going on vacation.

This recap is actually going to contain 3 topics from the football forum which is a new record, the second record set this week!  First of all, we hit a new all time users online at once record yesterday!  It was previously broken the day before so this has been a good week for CS. The first football forum topic is amazing in itself.  It’s entitled “Blank” and goes on for three pages (as of now) of exciting football conversations.  You should definitely check it out, you’ll thank me later… trust me!

The WAC has been a popular topic this week with the possibility of a new member joining the conference.  Is it Montana, “Cow Poly”, Sac State?  Who knows, but there are lots of opinions on who should/shouldn’t go and whether or not Boise will even leave the WAC to go the the MWC.  Have an opinion?  Throw it out there, you can’t be wrong… but I’m sure there are a few people out there that will tell you that you are.

Although this next bit of information didn’t happen this week, it is/was a very shocking piece of news upon my return to the main land. D1B has officially retired.  This comes with a feeling of sad joy.  What is sad joy you ask?  Think about, read posts on D1B and report back to me. [Edit: He has un-retired]. [Edit: He has officially retired again]. [Edit: He has unofficially un-retired once again]. [Edit: he has retired for 38 minutes]. [Edit: he’s back and in a non retired fashion].

Something I just wanted to point out that is a pretty cool and interesting tidbit is that the Official CS.com Drinking Thread hit its two year anniversary recently and is still going strong.  It’s a great read and participatory topic.  Football, Drinking and Girls… wow, if this site isn’t an exact image of a man’s brain I don’t know what is.

In another sad situation, a fellow FCS message board has been suspended indefinitely due to childish behavior of its members.  I’m glad that the sites I run don’t have childish members, that would be a pain to deal with.  I couldn’t imagine having to deal with those types of people, always criticizing the way you do things, attacking other members and overall just not happy with anything.  I hope that site returns valiantly but I do have an offer to make.  I will take control of the GoHens.net site and run it to return the sanity of previous admins.  I have a knack for this sort of thing and would be happy to take over if you feel that would be a better solution.  PM me if you are interested.  Hens Fans, if you like this idea, start spreading the word.

The last topic for this weekly recap is about TV Lineups and Reality TV shows.  Lets think about this for a second…  On THIS website, we are talking about Fall Network Lineups and Reality TV Shows, started by UNHWildCats and dbackjon respectively. Hmmmm, coincidence…. maybe, shocking… not really, a reality… most likely.  If anyone had any doubt about anything, you don’t anymore… I’m just sayin… wink wink.  In all seriousness though, we as a community thank you both for your contributions, and I honestly mean that!  We need topics other than the ones discussed in paragraph five above to even out… umm… yeah.  I’ll just leave it at that.

[edit: LSAs still don’t work Ursus]

Thanks for reading yet another CS Weekly Update and I hope you all have a most enjoyable weekend.

This has been your CS Weekly Update, Enjoy!

Religion, Griz Envy, the Double Down, a Triumphant Return and a New Sprout

CS Weekly Update: Issue #4

It’s Friday once again and this Friday is a special one as I went undercover to report on the infamous Friday Lunches in Missoula.  I heard through the grapevine of this super secret lunch that happens every Friday at undisclosed locations around Missoula.  I did some digging and found out the location of todays event and made an appearance.  Poor ol’ guy Grizo didn’t even realize it was me until he told me the same thing at least three times.  Was a great lunch though and I did hear rumors of next weeks location so if you want the inside scoop, just send me a PM.

Now for the weekly recap… It all starts with D1B once again self proclaiming himself as the religious guru of CS, which is all fine and dandy because I don’t believe anyone on here gives a #$%& about any of that stuff so carry on my friend.  I am starting to wonder if this new found religion is due to the non retirement threats that used to fill the void in your lonely Friday afternoons? This will be the shortest paragraph in CS Weekly Update History so congrats D1B for holding that title.

Screamin_Eagle174 also had a very self proclaimed week patting himself on the back for “blazing past” 2500 posts… but that did give him the first ever douche bag of the week award so congrats to you.  A fellow EWU fan had a major case of Griz Envy (see being a fan of a shitty team so you bash the fans of the good team to try and make yourself feel better) and posted a pic from 2005 (the last time EWU beat the Griz).

So that concludes the users that are trying to put themselves in the national spotlight.  Oh No… I just realized I robbed D1B of his shortest paragraph award… sorry man, maybe next time.  SE and your fellow EWU fan claimed the SP of the week award in addition to your  DB of the week award.  Congrats to you (both).

The KFC Double Down sandwich (or is it?) was a HUGE hit this week, causing controversy among the bread lovers and health nuts around the globe. andy7171 is intrigued but doesn’t feel as if he could stop eating once he started. GATW is not willing to betray bread therefore will not eat a sammy without it, and many other users talking about wanting one for each meal and some even talking about having multiples in one meal.  We also got into how andy7171’s wife pretty much owns his “soul” and will not allow grape jelly in the house.  I recommend this read, heck, go to KFC and grab one, nestle up to your favorite computer or iPad and write a review on this topic as you eat the thing cause as it has been reported that the grease will not transfer to your typing device, which is very handy IMO.

We had a triumphant return of a member that has been MIA for quite some time, even reports of no longer being alive.  He has risen once again, hacking his way around the firewall so hopefully he can stay longer this time as his contributions were missed greatly… I think… were they?  What the hell did he even contribute?  Oh well, welcome back lizrdgizrd.  Oh that’s right, a good avatar.  Now Rob Iola doesn’t have to dig into the archives to stare at it as it will most likely be on more recent and frequent threads.

We also welcome a new member to the site that is making quite an impression so far (even though her secret identity was revealed on the first reply of her very first post.  We welcome you and hope to have many great conversations in the future.  We also like the idea of having more women on the forums, so thanks for joining.  Rumor has it, you have some very good information and insight on the Griz Football program which is a rarity these days.  I hope you decide to share your inside information and everything for us non connected people.

Some site updates occurred this week (no LSAs are not working yet) and (yes I am still working on them, waiting for some assistance from a web developer). Facebook has been further integrated into the site giving you the ability to “like” any blog post (such as this one) or any forum topic.  The like feature then shows how many users “liked” the thread giving them an idea of how popular their topic may have been, similar to the karma idea but a little different.  This will then let other users know what posts are shared/liked the most and bring more attention to them.  So, if you are reading something you are a fan of, please click the like button and share your laughter and knowledge.  CS has also gone mobile! On any pda type mobile device (iPhone, Blackberry, Droid) you can download a Mobile App and view the forums using the mobile technology which is VERY slick. I highly encourage anyone to give it a try.

The other OTW awards from last week are recapped here in a GREAT write up done by Ursus (takes notes Grizo).  Other news, I will be gone from the forums starting the evening of Tuesday May 4th for 8 days as I will be in Beautiful Kauai, Hawaii soaking up the sun!  This also means no weekly update next week! I know I am missing something… hmmmm… what was it…. Oh yeah… Poor ol’ guy Grizo still isn’t funny (you can’t bribe me even if you did make a montage screen saver of all my avatar pics).

This has been your CS Weekly Update, Enjoy!

Easter Sunrises, UND, Armanti, Tiger and the best haircut ever

CS Weekly Update: Issue #1

This is the very first installment of what I would like to call the CS Week in Review (CS Weekly Update). I will recap the events of past week on the forums in no particular order, topic or member. This has been a very busy week so here goes nuttin!

I will start off with the discussion topic about Easter Sunrises which lasted for about 3 posts yet the topic has 65 posts at the time of this article. Appaholic posted some very nice photos of the sunrise on Easter morning and was possibly looking for some praise to either a) his photo taking abilities, b) that he has a church in his front yard or c) he is indirectly looking for a landscaper to remove the dead tree in his front yard. My guess was a but as the topic ended up talking about what mountains were, I was educated on the high points of the east coast. I saw that a pig trough that looked like some sort of device from an Austin Powers movie was the highest point in Iowa. I learned that the highest point in Florida is 345 ft above sea level and that Appaholic was both literally & figuratively, the highest person on the east coast at one point in time, which in my book is quite an achievement.

The next topic I am going to discuss that brought some great discussion to the forums this past week was the news that the University of North Dakota (UND) was retiring the “Fighting Sioux” nickname.  There were many suggestions as to new names.  Some include: Buffalo, Icemen, Northstars, Reapers, Flickertails, Kotes, Biglanders and the most popular was Susan B. Anthony.

Armanti is now on ESPN with his Vignette but the thread quickly turned into a discussion about porn and if the young female in Skjellyfetti‘s signature was old enough to be doing such acts.  So the burning question we have been wondering for years… who’s more popular, one of the Greatest FCS Quarterbacks to play football or a 20 something year old girl sitting on an exercise ball.  The verdict is in and the results show the latter, sorry Armanti.

Tiger Woods made his first appearance in the golf world after a five month hiatus due to some “minor” personal issues he was trying to deal with (you may have heard about this but if not, Google Tiger Woods).  This week Nike put out a new commercial in which Tiger was seen staring at the camera with his late father Earl Woods asking him questions as to why he did what he did and such.  This commercial has come across as shameless, controversial and more… what do you think?

Now you may be wondering what the two greatest stories of the week are?  Wonder no more.  CID1990 received the Best Goddamn Haircut Ever.  Haircut, head massage, eyebrow plucking and more for a measly $2.75.  I do believe he made it an even $3 with tip though.  It’s a decent read on his experience and maybe you can find out where this place is and experience it yourself and compare notes.

The last “best” story of the week was not D1B retiring from CS, but retiring from retirement threads.  As you all know D1B retires from CS quite often, usually once a week or so after long nights of drinking O’douls, smoking candy cigarettes and watching the latest showing of Gone with the Wind.  This week was the exception, after his latest un-retirement of his previous retirement, D1B vowed not to retire again until June 1st in which he says he will not return.  This is just a few days after the release of Sex and the City 2 so there has to be some correlation.  I’ll leave that up for you to decide.  I will be starting a pool on the forums to take bets for when he does retire, whether he will retire more than once before that, if he will hold to his word on June 1st and we will also be planning the celebration for June 2nd.

This has been your CS Weekly Update!  Enjoy!
