I still see Knightstalker, David Collinge and PG04 on facebook. Gro, I believe, is with us under a different name. JT was banned for excessive political posting and ax-grinding but served his time and came back as JT2, where he has posted occasionally.

Happy they are each still with us... I read Knightstalker frequently in the NJAC room back in the days when that conference was a regular in the national rankings.  Met Dave Collinge somewhere, probably an NCAA tourney game involving Hope and an Ohio school..  'gro was a LL football poster, probably the most entertaining room ever on D3boards (I never attempted to get involved, I would not have come close to keeping up with those guys), but read it often as an RPI alum....

I'm having a senior moment... what was the young lady's ID who was such a great supporter of Wheaton?  I remember seeing Wash U - Wheaton play and she brought me chocolate chip cookies due to some remark in the CCIW room.... as good as the CCIW room is now, her inclusions in discussions with Sager, TQ etal were truly the best.... Whatever happened to her?????

She's alive and kicking... just not here.

Yes, but who did she post as??  I remember she use a D3hoops name for a time, and her real name for a time... just can't remember what they were.....

I joined January of 2000, so I'm over 20 years now.

I remember for a short while as I was hopefan and you were hoopsfan, I would refer to you as "cousin hoops"... ;D ;D ;D

The archive site is there and shows considerable activity from some of the conferences that had followers in 1999... unfortunately for some reason, the most active conferences, the CCIW, the MIAA, the ODAC attempt to come up, flash at you, then produce a blank page.... perhaps in the capturing of posts, there were too many in those rooms and they simply failed to be captured...

Had to chuckle that virtually the first post I read, in the CAC room, was :
By Phantom (spider-wk063.proxy.aol.com - 205.188.198.178) on Sunday, November 28, 1999 - 10:56 pm:
Pat Coleman is a pompous . what a jerkoff

Dang, abuse even back then!!!!!!!!!!  Well, I notice Phantom is no longer on the membership list.... ;D ;D ;D

Great response Pat... fascinating stuff for a long timer like me... Can't remember how I first heard about the site, wish I hadn't missed the first several years.

Going to check out that archive site....

With so little to read about in the sports world except the impact of the Corona Virus, I started reviewing (with many chuckles) some of the very early posts in rooms that I frequented...

it leads to the question... Pat or Ryan or one of the old heads can refresh my mind.... the very first posters were registered in late 1998, 1999, and many added in subsequent years, but the earliest posts shown are from Feb, 2005... different dates in Feb 2005 too for active rooms  MIAA (Feb. 19,2005),  CCIW (Feb 28, 2005), ODAC (Feb 15, 2005), seemingly cut off/restarted on different dates as they were obviously ongoing conversations.  What happened then to restart posts?  I'm thinking a new system?    What happened to the prior posts?  Gone forever?   I can remember a couple of specific conversations that I was involved in that are gone, likely prior to the Feb. 2005 time frame.  Were posts prior to Feb, 2005 still included in the individuals (active today) posting count total?  I can't remember how active I was then, which would have included following Wash U as a huge fan (by then I had lived in St. Louis 10-15 years and had lost most contact with Hope), and then gravitated over to the SLIAC room...

Curious... and maybe we can use this room to entertain readers with posting stories of the "old days".....

At some point the athletes have a point. Why should they be the only ones on campus and traveling? Why are they guinea pigs? Is sport really that important? More important than in-person classes students have signed up for?

My post was meant to show that the attitude of college athletes expressed in jknezbek's post is not necessarily the attitude shared by all college athletes....

To add....

Not sure if it has been brought up here, but my alma mater, RPI, will be hosting Harvard in a best of 3 game series ECAC D1 Hockey playoff series this weekend..

In front of empty stands    (capacity 4,780)

Contrary to opinions previously mentioned, IVY League Basketball players, led by Penn, are banding together to PROTEST CANCELLATION of the IVY League Men's and Women's Basketball tourneys, while Ivy teams in other sports are permitted to advance in various tourneys..

Having missed the last 2 weeks of the regular season, as well as the conference semis, I didn't feel it was my place to take part in prior conversation..

But with a big chuckle ;D ;D ;D, I will make this bold prediction.... as far as point spread goes, the Webster men will do better vs Nebraska Wesleyan than the Webster women will do against Depauw.... again,  ;D ;D ;D

BANG!!!!!!!

I looked up swagger in the dictionary and it had a picture of Josh Johnson.

Some old head fans might call it something else....

... and no Schimonitz for NWU, which is definitely a plus for the Gorloks.

However, I would point out Webster is missing Starter Jordan Clay, a 10 ppg, 7 rpg player...
