What's with this board?
Did everyone go to another site or did they just -----> leave?

This is very disturbing.


Marc 06-09-2017 02:50 PM

I'll NEVER leave as long as I pay the bills to keep the lights on! main site is going along great.

Hello, Marc, buck.

Good to see you both!

Marc, I like Brad's "All-Name Teams."

Pretty clever and interesting.

My question is what compelled buckeye to post? Does he check this site periodically? Just coincidence? Hmmmm.

Jack Knoff 06-17-2017 02:16 AM

Where's Rob?

Or should I call him -----> Ellis?

SINCE 1998

We're approaching the 20th anniversary.


Tip of the cap to you, Marc.

Are we going to party like it's -----> 1999?


Marc 06-18-2017 09:19 AM

Mighty kind of you, Jack! I started this as a 7th grader and now am 31 with a newborn son.

Congratulations on the son, Marc.
Life has changed a bit for me since this board started. I have retired from a state job, lost my wife to cancer, taken a part-time job, become mayor of my little town, started going out with a lady I've known for 50 years (who my daughter likes, by the way), and worked with many different organizations to help in my local area.

Marc 06-25-2017 08:11 PM

Good to hear from you, catman!

I honestly just think message boards are a thing of the past, thanks to social media.

Jack Knoff 06-29-2017 07:24 AM

Cat, I grew up not far from central Iowa.
Just over the Mississippi River, in Illinois.

Marc, you're probably right.
I notice that back in the day people put more effort into message board posts, too.

Because of Twatter (and other social media), people have now been trained to express themselves in 140 characters or less.

Much of the art of message boarding is gone.

People don't have the patience for it, and they don't put much effort into it.

I love ya Marc. Haven't talked to you in a few years and we jump right back into Tom & Jerry mode.


Seriously though, congrats on the son. :)


Sorry for the loss of your wife. Glad you've found company though.


Thanks for the post spurring the semi-reunion.

I think message boards are toast too. The other two Ohio State boards I visited closed down.

I joined Facebook this year. Younger family and friends forced me to do so saying that's how they keep everyone up to date on what's going on.

And yes, I hate it. :D

catman 07-10-2017 02:57 PM

By the way, I've also become a grandfather twice.

I'm sorry I missed your appearance here -- 3 months ago, Ellis.

I hope you're well.
