TGHIJGSTO 2... Spence's return. If I remember correctly it ended up being the same person.
Those are tales that will be passed down from generation to generation. It's always fun to look back at that even if it was a bit irksome at the time. The boards have been around a long time and have a lot of good stories, in-jokes, and quotes. We should have a page to collect them all to help the newbies get up to speed. 8-)

It's a long story; the short version is that an enthusiastic fan of Richard Stockton College (now Stockton University) was a frequent poster on the Men's Top 25 board during the 2013-14 season, making the case that his favorite team was not getting the respect it was due. He was somewhat combative when on his best behavior; quite a few times, he appeared to be posting under the influence of alcohol, to the detriment of both his manners and his coherence.

"TGHIJGSTO" stems from one of his less-coherent posts:
DONT JUSDT SAY TGHIJGSTO SAY THINGS, RICHARD STOCKMTON IS AS GOOD AS 15-0
(Note, if you click on the date of the above quote, you can read more of his posts.) From context, it is clear that he meant to type (or rather, to shout) "things to," but in d3boards lingo, it has come to be an all-purpose interjection.

Twenty Greek Hydrologists In Japan Got Severely Ticklish Overnight
This is a reasonably good backronym.

Actually, I did not get smited as part of that epic tale. Anyone who does not get that reference should read Gregory Sager's summary HERE, which includes this reference:
Check the link from Darryl's post. It was one of the maaaaany mistakes a since banned poster made. It was supposed to be "things to" but ended up TGHIJGSTO. And that's the one that's stuck for all eternity now.

Before we get back to actual HCAC chatter I just want to point out that in 15 years this thread had 9 pages. Since August we're on the 7th page.

Heading into the first conference game tonight, the conference stands at 17-26 overall with Bluffton still undefeated while Rose, MSJ, and Defiance are winless. The three winless teams all finished in the top 5 last season and entering conference play were 3-3 Rose, 2-1 MSJ, 0-5 Defiance. We'll see if they shake off their early season struggles this year.

On to conference play tonight.

Last night Earlham traveled to Wilmington (Ohio) for a non-conference game and came out on the short end 82-68. Sr. Camryn White lead Earlham with 22 points and Trinity McClendon added 17 off the bench in the defeat.

Well Defiance wins with a basket in the final seconds to get the 56-54 decision over Anderson. And the HCAC regular season is under way.

thank you, while I initially got a terrific kick out of seeing someone post on D3boards like @dril tweets, it became clear (at least in my mind, this is my best guess as to what happened) from seeing the deterioration from his initial perfectly lucid posts (on page 13 of his history) to the most recent barely legible scrawl he posted before being banned that something became neurologically wrong with him - perhaps a stroke or Parkinson's-like condition that caused all the typos. Then it didn't feel so funny anymore.

I don't know what it is with Franklin's audio... during football season the quality is good but it's too quiet... during basketball season the volume is fine but sounds like it's sandpapering your ear. Think I need to switch to the mens game just to give my poor ears a break.
