I tried to go over to scout last night to recruit people. However when I logged onto GBW it brought me to a George Washington University site
BTW to all my fellow scout exiles, I was lyons1kt
Another familiar poster from when I use to post over on GBW.
11 National Titles | 42 Conference Titles | 3 Heisman Winners | 78 All-Americans | 37 College Hall of Fame Members
Welcome to all the new posters! We're thrilled to have you all here, so make yourself at home.
They banned me for a twitter post where I said something like, "TomVH is better than another Tom on another Michigan site." For serious.
Out of curiosity, how is the chat software coming along? Be really nice to have a Wolverine 247 chat room for the games.
I was melsesse over on scout (premium). I haven't been there in probably a year or so.
I hated the interface of the old scout site, but the new site is somehow 1000 times worse. Not sure who their programmers are.
A lot of guys like elmonthc, maize09blue, bacon1431, bringbackmaze, etc.. all seem to be waiting things out while looking around. Some guys have disapeared and I haven't seen since the change. To be honest I think blackdream and SoJ are the only ones I haven't seen verbally say they are looking around.
Ive been on GBW for 3.5 years.. Look over here about once a week or so.. Now Im here 2-3 times a day cause the GBW site is a total mess.. take me like 5 min to even get on over there.. Come Jan. I'll decide if I stay a paying member there or bring my money to this site.. Keeping options open..
I'm not a "paying" member anywhere. I really don't care if I know about commitments first or last. My main objective is discussion. I am very happy with this site after my first couple of days
Would love to have energy over here, and SoJ.
They should make the leap -- the new Fox format is ridiculous. I can't post. Seriously. Every time I tried to hit "reply," I was taken to a page where it showed me the list of ALL the boards. After the fourth or fifth time, I said screw this. I am in complete agreement with the sentiment that it was probably THE worst timing ever for a major change like that.

Wow, millions of $$ lost. RT @Mengus22: According to @bkoo, the Scout sites are all rolling back to their old formats tonight.
Wow...but little wonder. If you're going to "improve" something by making it FAR, FAR worse -- you're going to lose business. If they return to the old format, I'll go back -- AND remain here, too.
FoxSportsNext has made the decision to make the old Scout.com site available again starting later tonight, the transition back will be around 11 PM EDT. Fox remains committed to the launch of FOXSportsNEXT.com with a phased launch plan that works for everyone after all of the technical issues are addressed.
I just checked the board over there -- and there are 7 people online. SEVEN. Usually, there are at least 400-500.
I'm honestly not 100% sure. I know it's definitely in the works, but I haven't heard a specific timeframe. If you send an email to email@example.com, they should be able to answer that for you.
We've actually got an offer right now where you can join for free for the rest of the year, so you'd get full VIP access and be able to see which site you like the best without spending a dime. Feel free to give it a shot.
And to you as well!
Glad you're enjoying your experience here so far!
Well even if they plan on going back to foxsportsnext in the near future whenever they have all the technical issues figured out, the layout is still a mess. I find it extremely confusing.
It's nice to see some old posters from GBW.
I like that this community is expanding.

I posted a very respectful but clearly worded message saying that it is time for Rodriguez to be fired in late December 2010 or early January 2011, saying that even though he knew what he was doing offensively he as head coach had to carry responsibility for the intolerably bad defense that threatened to derail our status as a powerhouse. That was a couple of weeks before he was indeed fired but I think Beaver and Co. had decided that anything said against Rodriguez would "hurt recruiting" so they just banned people who were too vocal about it.
SAME THING happened to me bro
Good to see this site growing in membership. Most of the posters on this site are cool peeps, besides__________ and well now that I think about it ___________ the only person I can think of.. look forward to chatting about recruiting with you guys...

feel free to tell me. I'll keep your secret
