I'm not sure if anyone pointed this out yet...but I'm shocked our insiders didn't call the yahoo boom 3 weeks ago!
There are no insiders
Thanks. I'm not sure why folks don't see that being wrong about an inside story is just as bad as not knowing there was a story to begin with. That said, I'll still get suckered into an inside story next week. It's fun to believe.
We've been deprived of their jewels of information because we treated them so horribly in 2011, See what happens when you don't believe anonymous message board stuff from those in the know? We could have been enjoying this for weeks. And for those of you who can't tell, this is what's called sarcasm.
+1 for the disclaimer
They were just on an 18 month delay
"Theres No Substitute for Guts"
Good thread haha +1
I called it. Upvote me
Pay attention to Gradyjr, ethanm, and the staff for team stuff. Previous posters with good info include signusup and morgan holder. I am not sure why they dont post anymore. There are some posters like heatheatheat that have info on specific recruits (Tyren Jones).
Definitely add me to that list IMO
You could be. Those are the ones that I am certain have info not available to most. They also dont post much if at all about Auburn. I get the feeling they dont give a s#!+ what Auburn is doing.
problem- we have quite a few posters that are "insider wanta-be's". Their posts always start out the same.... "I'm no insider but I have a friend or distant relative that is in the know and they told me __________________________". They simply post everything that they hear in hoping that something sticks. So chances are somebody did say something a few weeks ago about this. It is simply the law of numbers. You post 10 things that you hear and claim to be no insider, something will eventually be true.
The Dynasty is Here!
Being an "insider" is so silly. This gets discussed so often. There is no real insider into the program unless Mal himself posts on this board. That said, people do know coaches, their wives, etc. I mean they are humans who have lives.
I once posted that one of our players had his knee scoped (on the old BOL site) because I knew the nurse who was there and was absolutely flamed for it because I wouldn't post how I knew. Kinda a big deal doctors/nurses revealing patient info...
Anyway it's all fun until people take message board posts as 100% fact. Hell even ESPN missed things from time to time. (Rich Rod to Bama). Did that mean they were just "trolling the Bama nation" or did they report info that managed to change later...
As Thomas Payne or maybe it was Jack Nicholson said " common sense ain't common no more ".
