Anyone else aware of this? I just found out... I read where some Card fans were excited about their new board. I wasn't expecting 247.
Anyway, just in case you wanna lurk...
funny situation. Jody Demling leaves the CJ and will be running the UL scout.com site. So the guy who used to run that one comes over to 247. Or maybe that one happened before the first, who knows.
Didn't take long for the stupidity of their other boards to make it to the new one.
You sure he is running UL scout?...seems like he may be a ULscout/foxsportsnext contributor or something
If you missed, @jdemling is joining us at FOXSportsNEXT to cover hoops and horse racing. Been pursuing him for six years. #PlayedHardToGet
will they ban people as quickly as their other site?
Who owns Scout.com? Fox Sports!
So UL scout runs horse racing stories as well?...recruiting the finest 2 year olds??...
All I was asking was if he was running the UL Scout site as well as contributing to horse racing stuff for Fox sports...or if he was just writing stories for UL scout on the side...
Well, there goes the neighborhood.
See ya'll in 51 days
Im sorry...but who the hell cares?
Why are we talkin about it?
dude, you've made it clear you don't care. We get it. Other people do; obviously if they didn't this wouldn't be posted or have any comments. It might be time to pick a new battle.
That was the first thing I thought when I saw it... if nothing else, it should be interesting.
I wonder how they came up with such a creative name for the site??? "Louisville" . . .
haha, on that note.. one of the most annoying things I will ever hear to this day (outside of Rocky Top) is the God-awful cards cheer. I'm sure that's been discussed ad nauseam and I just missed it... but surely those hayseeds aren't so stupid as to not notice that it has no rhythm to it, has too many letters, sounds terrible, etc. etc. It's like the hot girl with a mustache... you know she looks in the mirror every morning and sees it... why doesn't she do something about it? Why they don't come up with something that isn't a blatant rip off of the CATS cheer and at least sounds decent is mind-boggling.
What's crap is the fact that a site with no writers/etc. already has better forum traffic than this site. Pathetic Cat fans ;)
Oh i think not. A new battle? Really? We have threads about THE LOUISVILLE FOOTBALL PROGRAM on a UK site! WTF? You guys have every right to talk up UofLOL all you want here on our UK site...but i also have every right to say i think its ridiculous. Don't drop your opinion on me then tell me maybe i shouldn't have one of my own.
As far as my picking a new battle...maybe you should pick a new site....looks like little brother has one now.
I'm sorry, but I gotta agree with Tommy here. This is a UK site and I come here to read about UK, not uavel.
Will uavel come up from time to time, sure. That is OK by me. But, we have "The Cards join 247 Sports", "Does UK Spend Enough on Football Marketing" (started with a link comparing UK and uavel expenditures, not unreasonable), "James Quick's Top Five" (in itself not unreasonable but with considerable discussion of him leaning heavily toward uavel), and "Underrated Coaching Jobs" (talking about Mark Schlabach saying uavel fans care more about football than Kentucky fans),
That is four threads on the front page with considerable discussion of uavel. Fairly recently we had an avalanche where seemingly every fricking thread (or at least those receiving lots of posts) was about uavel.
We need to be talking about Kentucky.
I'm ready to fight this battle.
LOL sorry pal... I joined the Cats Pause in 2004 and have been following my man JDrum around ever since, so I can safely say I'll be around for a while to come if he keeps up his predictably awesome work (you too Matt, Chris, et al.). What's more, I'm a season ticket holder (OMG A LOUISVILLE FAN THAT HAS SEASON TICKETS TO UK GAMES?!?) and a regular donor to the K-Fund outside of the required "donations" for my seats, so don't try that mickey mouse move of making me out to be a tards fan.
If you are too obtuse to see the interconnection between UK and UL, then that's your problem. I don't think anyone here is "talking" them up (for example, the underrated coaching jobs thread is a thread about how ludicrous that UL is on that list, which is the EXACT opposite of "talking them up") and it's absolutely ridiculous to say we shouldn't compare one to the other. They are our rivals. Do you know what a rivalry is? Do you know how rivalries come about? By teams comparing themselves against each other and arguing over who is better. Do you know WHY there is a thread about the marketing budgets of the two schools? Because UK FANS are miffed that our commuter college RIVAL spends more to market their joke of a team than we do. If you don't want to hear about it, then simply (emphasis on simply because it is a very SIMPLE solution) don't read. I don't much care for basketball. If it weren't for UK being awesome at it, I would never watch. So guess what? When a basketball thread pops up, I don't read it.
Finally, you have your opinion and I have mine, and you're absolutely right about that. Now, if you'd care to highlight where I said you shouldn't express yours, I'd love to see it. In the meantime, you'd save yourself a lot of time and effort (and a lot of credibility while we're at it) if you didn't go into threads that you don't care about and tell other people they shouldn't care either. If nobody else wanted to discuss it, as you seem to think is the case, there wouldn't be a thread, period, much less multiple posts within it. Your post is a clown post, bro.
That's a fair take, and I agree for the most part. However, it's not like we are discussing their depth chart. All of the topics (that I have deigned to read anyway) have been comparing UK and loserville to each other. And I don't have any problem with that... UL is a barometer so to speak in the sense that whatever they are doing, we should be doing exponentially better. So in that vein, I am interested to know what they are up to. If you're not, that's your prerogative and I respect it... but just because you don't want to talk about something doesn't mean nobody else can.
My credibility? HAHAHAHA ok Mr. 40 posts...in which half of thone are talkin about loserville. THIS IS A UK SITE! Its fine tobhave discussions about our rivals. Especially if we are engaged in recruiting battles for the same players, upcoming games and so on, but we are talkin about threads about loserville getting a 247 site....that has absolutely ZERO to do with anything you mentioned in your post.
We are creeping up on the kickoff to the season, key recruiting targets, the future of our coach, and serious core of young talent....yet we have a thread about little brother getting a site.....yay! Hoorah for them....
I was one of the first 6 members of KI...BEFORE Drum, BEFORE Fish, BEFORE Matt....a site that was all about UK (90% football btw) all of the time....so i guess im just used to UK football fans actually talkin about UK football. And NOT talkin about how "ima football guy first" while posting on threads about UofLOL "247"...and yeah....the Damn pun was intended.

Your 100% right...and now you have a shiny New 247 site to do it. So have at it.
LOL the fact that you want to judge my credibility by the number of posts I have (which, not that it matters in the least, reset when I switched over to 24/7, but was still well below your thousands... must have a lot of free time) coupled with the fact that you took the time to read the forty I have on here tells me all I need to know. While I appreciate your... ummm.... protectionist (?) approach to these boards you clearly hold so dearly, at the end of the day, people are going to discuss whatever they feel like is pertinent with complete and total disregard for how you feel about it. I suggest you get used to it, as it's not limited to message boards.
As far as this thread is concerned, your eloquent and masterful response, coupled with you're sterling credentials of internet stardom, have sufficiently intimidated me into bowing out. Congratulations on a job... done.
That was a super clever pun by the way. Reminiscent of a young Christopher Titus. Every village has one.
Tommy... I started this thread simply because I thought it was interesting to see "Louisville" on 247Sports. When I found it, I just wanted to pass it along... the purpose was NOT to have in depth discussions about UofL football, basketball, or anything else in specific. Having said that, it's only natural for fans to have thread discussions about their biggest rivals... especially, their "in-state" rival. If you go to Dukes site, I'm sure you will find Tar Heel threads... and vice versa.
We kick off our season against the Cards (and soon)... so who else should we be talking about right now anyway?
Unfortunately we are dinosaurs tommy.
It smells like microwaved homeless people in here.
JJ u know me, you know im all about the university and this site. I've had friends on this site for years...i consider you one of them. Regardless of what "Mr Balls" was tryin to make it look like, i have no problem with discussion about our rival...when is related to us.
Imo there has been way too much senseless talk about loserville lately. Im not gonna re type every i posted but i said how i felt in my post above....we have entirely too much goin on here with our program to be talking abou them....again, unless it pertains to recruiting, upcoming game, etc... Imo we have to be careful and not start to look like the jealous step son.
Btw, @ Mr Balls, nice try.... I like how you really tried to smash me with your intellect yet missed everything in my post....lol. My comment about credibility was in ref that i have been here on this site a long time....i know a lot of these guys (we are friends...not internet stardom) i have been posting for years....therefore a guy nobody knows with 40 posts is going to talk about MY credibility....hilarious. I thought it was cute how you actually thought i read all your posts....i was only kidding when i said half your posts were about loserville.....then you come talkin like its true???? HAHAHAHA....are they? Lol...wow. The point i was tryin to make is that there is way too much stuff to talk about with our own program right now. If this was the 5th loserville thread I've read in a week i wouldn't have said a word....and yeah, there is one in every village....the awesome guy...me.
