    OK, it's probably time to address it. Here goes:

    Yes, we're slowing down. Yes, I am completely fine with that. Soon, we'll be discussing a new game, and new teams, and all the fun sh&* that comes along with it. The tourney is happening (which, by the way, pretty much dominates my whole world for a few weeks) and things are becoming a bit of a chore.

    Please know that this is OK, and no one is going to get booted (save one guy who already did, but that was a different issue). Try to keep a presence here and stay as active as you can, especially when we start ramping up again for the next go-round.

    I'm not going to get gung-ho. I am not going to break balls. At our worst, we are still more active than pretty much everyone, so just because we're not lighting up the boards like we used to, that doesn't mean anyone is passing us - they're all pretty far back.

    My goal is to keep each and every one of you. Help me do that by posting as much as you are able, and getting with me before any decisions about staying or going are made. I'll do everything I can to accommodate everyone.

    You guys are a great group. Let's start next year just as we are. Agree?

    Go Bucks,

    AG

    No problem with the slowdown. We got a great group going around here, hopefully we can keep everyone together in the future.

    I agree- lets keep it going! It is tough to keep up both pace & activity at this point in the year, but hopefully we can at least maintain close to the same pace-

    I hope you all slow down on your blogs so the SEC folks can win that too, along with everything else the SEC wins. :)

    Just an FYI - Easy's at a coaching clinic out of town, but I think he's coming back today, so we should play soon.

    Tomorrow is fine. Now that my Buckeyes are out, I'm not as freakishly devoted to the tourney as I was before. Sad day.

    Just an FYI - but my new gig has me traveling quite a bit this quarter, and I'm coming home after 10pm on many nights. I have internet access, but I try to stay away from anything that doesn't involve my students or my classes. I'm pushing hard for a full-time gig, so I gotta be flawless. Still, I have plenty of time to stay active here - it just might be more of a middle of the night thing, whereas before, I could hop on pretty much any time.

    I don't have any more user games, at least not until bowl time, so it shouldn't hold us up at all. I'm just not quite as chatty these days.

    I put myself on auto for this week. Our travel agent messed up so we had to drive out to st. louis early yesterday morning to fly out to new orleans (ended up being a 17 hour travel day because our flight was delayed 5 hours) sorry for the inconvenience. I'll be back Sunday
