Don't think it is for Maroon Council specifically, just a distribution list maintained by the players. Started with Jimmy DeCicco a few years ago, the. Nikko Armiento took over, now done by Deiner.

Thanks '63. Used to get the ones from DeCicco but think he was posting those--don't remember.

Yes this board has been dead since we switched from the voy board after getting razzed about it from a Sam Houston trash talker. The registration and set-up do not lend to encouraging participation.

I'm surprised at the optimism on AGS over the prospects of 'gate playing a close game against Syracuse. I'll be watching and hoping for one, but I think fans need to be realistic. Syracuse is a cut above the service academies (Navy last year being an exception which proves the rule), Buffalo, Ball State, and even Rutgers (at least when we were playing them). Sure they had an 8-game losing streak last year, but that streak included 10-point losses to top-5 Clemson and LSU. They are truly a major I-A program. I thought we played a great game a few years ago when we lost 42-7 (and were screwed out of 14 points by the refs). Anything within 3 TDs would be easily beating the spread and be a very acceptable result. I'm not trying to be a downer and am thrilled we are playing the Orange again, but just don't think we should be calling for Hunt's head or a new QB if we get blown out.

I think if you look back at the old board you'll see '63 started a thread about setting up a new board that he had been contemplating for some time... don't think the trash talk was the principal driver, but maybe I'm wrong about that.  

You're certainly right that the new board has been less active than the old one, which is too bad... hoping it picks up when the season starts.   And if we get out of Syracuse having played competitively and with no major injuries, anything else is gravy!

When I shut down the old Lehigh forum and Chuck started the new forum it took 2 years before it started to get active. The new Patriot League board us going thru the same process..

I think his were also getting posted to some Uplifting Athletes blog. If anyone wants to get on the distribution list then send me an email at colgatefootball@gmail.com and I'll send a list over to Kyle to add to his updates.

True, this is actually my 2nd attempt at a new board. I always had it on the back burner to give it another go and finally looked into free options more seriously when the Sam Houston guy offered to fund one for us for a year. This forum has been much better, at least from my point of view. There has only been one spam user/post on this board that I had to delete vs a daily process of deleting spam from the old Voy. I also like the feature of being alerted when someone replies to your message. I'll be answering some questions for Syracuse's SBNation website in the coming days and will plug this forum to try and drive some conversation for everyone.

This board looks and functions very well--Ryan was right to change it. That being said, I think the registration part inhibits the inciting posters that are in someways the lifeblood of this place. Nothing rallies the 'gaters more than having Punky Brewster (who is obviously Professor Aveni) set loose the day after a close win over Sacred Heart.


Here is another great video from Colgate FB's Twitter:

Ha! Aveni as Punky Brewster, that's a good one! Whatever happened to Punky, Chenango Sam, Will E Coyote, and several others (who all may have been the same person as far as I know) who routinely trashed Colgate sports and celebrated our defeats? They disappeared a couple of years ago on the old voy forum, and I presume were not banned. Though aggravating, they did have knowledge of Colgate athletics and stimulated conversation.

I can't argue with anything said about the look, function, and advantages of this new board. Perhaps it is an illusion since every post is not seen on the main page, but it seems like there is far, far less activity on this board. I can't believe we are playing Syracuse in a week, after we dominated a team in a win last December that was within a TD of Syracuse according to the Sagarin ratings (and that was AFTER our win), and this board is so dead. This is a discussion forum after all. Maybe all the bells and whistles that make it look so good are like the attractive packaging on dog food that dogs don't like to eat.
