I get it. I think had that title been used any other time, we would have figured it was about the Dubcast rather than about a replacement for Birm. Timing was off for a title like that.

This is for the Dubcast, though. This is the first person they have brought in to the Dubcast with real prior experience in talk media.

I do think that Beau is a great addition and think that the first Dubcast together with Johnny was really good. I think it will elevate what Johnny has helped build.

I never was around to listen to Bishop in Ohio and I understand that he is divisive. But he does bring some experience to the position and some other avenues for connections. If Johnny was excited then I trust him.

As for Titus, or someone like him, maybe those at her people are more costly or didn't want to be involved. I agree that Titus could have added something different, but I don't know if he would be interested or available.

Thank you, 7/10 for spreading the word.

Most people know not to link to paywalled stuff but we definitely need a periodic reminder for those that are unaware (usually newer members).

And nobody wants to swim with oysters.

Yes, yes Ive had enough of it. Next subject please.

I'd rather discuss this than question when 11W will introduce a new recruiting writer.

Appreciate your willingness to be helpful. Kudos to you! I hope you never do something incorrect in life and just get deleted. 

Please don't take it personally if one of your threads is closed or deleted. There is a good reason when it happens and it has happened to many people that post to this site.

The MODs try to keep the site cleaned up and when duplicate threads on a subject appear, the MODs allow the first threads on a subject to stand. When there are multiple threads on a single topic, it is more difficult to look for forum topics. It is easier to search for a topic, and conversation is centralized, when secondary threads have been deleted.

Now, some MODs are nicer than myself and keep threads open to allow people to link over. My view is to just delete to keep them from clogging the list of forum topics, but we all have different methods. However, both are acceptable. And I must admit, that although it may hurt my reputation on the site, I have not deleted a forum topic in weeks...probably months. But there is always a reason when it is done and it is never because one of the MODs doesn't like someone or doesn't agree with them. They are deleted because that's what was asked of us as moderators. We are not just trying to be assholes.

Everyone screws up sometime. Having comments or a forum topic deleted from 11W is not a big deal.

It's not quite so morose up here in Davis, but I haven't seen the Warriors car flags so much today.

Also, I don't work around that many sports I enjoy my Ohio pride by myself.

I'll be down there 8 days later than you, but with kids in tow. We'll only have a morning as we are simply flying into NOLA before driving elsewhere.

I was in NOLA three years ago for a conference and Spotted Cat was pretty fun and a great vibe. Other than that, most of our time was spent in and around the conference hotel.

Once again, Buck68 leaves a beautifully written masterpiece that makes me question my reading comprehension and sanity...or the sanity of others.

I bought one of those things for both myself and my daughter last weekend. They are addictive. 

I should have bought stock in that company. Then when I hook the kids, I get more money down the road.

And I had a buddy that played DII football and when they played at an indoor field, they really had to worry about bacteria infections from the bugs that were happily thriving in the artificial turf. They had to have special soap to use after games because their arms would always get scraped from the turf.
