Can we put basket ball in its own thread please?
« on: September 11, 2012, 03:48:45 PM »
Someone posts "Recruiting targets" as a subject and I thought is was for the only sport that matters.  It would be nice to categorize football, and then all other sports.

It is a good idea power. What I did was put message icons for all of the sports so that people could chose the sport. However, most people do not use them, so the Block-Y  shows up as the default. The majority of people do not like to move between boards. Right now we have YSU and non-YSU sports threads. Having Football, other YSU Sports, and Non-YSU sports is not too bad. Let's do a poll.

I voted to keep only one topic, and we can try to find a way to get people to use the message icon to tell us which sport the thread is about. The reason I voted this way is because many sports have great stories, that people may not read ...and I try to give all sports their attention. today for example. Golf won their first tournament in over 10-years. The message icon is right below the subject line

This poll is a joke. A knee-jerk reaction to beating Pitt. I personally would rather hear about basketball recruiting targets than football ones. Half of the football roster are transfers and jucos anyway that aren't even mentioned when recruiting threads are posted. There weren't many football posts until we beat Pitt now all of a sudden the bandwagon is full. You should be a fan of all YSU sports. Keep as one.

Why is this an issue?  Indy clearly listed "basketball recruiting targets" in his heading.  If you are not interested, just don't read it. 8)

Amen.....
Leave it as is.  YSU SPORTS...IF you are interested,
post.  If not, don't post.  You wanna read it, read it,
you aren't interested in the certain sport, don't read
it.  For goodness sakes FANS, get a grip.  And NO "IP"
even this FAN is not interested in EVERY sport, therefore
I can't be a FAN of.....unless you are asking me to be a
Phony.

You can be a "fan" without having alot of interest. Are you telling me you don't want the women's swimming team to win, even if you're not really interested in the sport?? Come on, you can figure that out. You said it---if you don't want to read it, don't.

IP...do the two of us have nothing better to do
than debate with one another, about this?
Good grief, we are in trouble.  I'm old, what's
your excuse.

I just think it would be more organized if it wasn't just thown into the mix.  It can be confusing, especially when you don't know the names of the people being recruited.  Many other sites are organized this way as well.  I particularly like how Indiana State's fan sit is organized.

As a "YSU" fan (not just a "YSU Football" fan) I don't want to have to look at multiple boards to view topics.  I enjoy reading all the topics because I am a true YSU sports fan.

If someone can't tell that a topic labelled "Basketball Recruiting Targets" isn't about football, then setting up separate boards probably isn't going to help them anyway.

I was talking about the Larry JohnsonR. thread first of all.  Second of all, I am a true YSU fan, but I could care less about all college sports except football.  There is also athread called Wester PA Recruits that does not specify.

That's what I'm talking about. TRUE YSU fans care how all student/athletes do. They represent our University and they work hard.
