Does it seem like this board is dead?

Are we just not considering it basketball season or what?

Seems like there are less people on here than usual

Well, we got 6,400 posts in the Big 10 thread. We're doing our part.
I think that's the reason. Instead of individual game threads we have all made our conference threads and mostly everyone posts in those.

unc has taken a toll on the board.
This is sort of near the mark.

Now that Jarms has committed suicide, we are no longer inundated with countless threads about Carolina having easy classes.

Another reason it seems dead is that we are all bored with pre-conference schedules.

Jarms has never been a problem with this board. He was passionate about something that didn't go his way. The board is not better in his absence.

we still need game threads for any game that actually garners interest. When Indiana plays Iowa, we can keep it in the B1G thread.

The thread is about board activity. Jarms offing himself led to a significant decrease in activity, given the conclusion to his passionate quest.

The real hoop nerds are still here. I personally am very much into the season so far. Going to game at Cameron and the Dean Dome this week.
Think you may see some big numbers in those two.

I usually hang out on the football board until about conference play simply because it has more traffic... but it's about time to make the switch!

I enjoy knowing that Carolina can have this kind of effect on you.

Home boards probably have more focused, in-depth info on our favorite teams. And there are no more political threads here.

The same 5 or so posters take part in the political threads. And as far as I can tell, we're all still regularly posting. So I don't think that has anything to do with it.

I certainly hope so.

I was able to spend some time on the Chapel Hill campus when I arrived here. First time here in years. Love it down here.

You're full of it. If UNC killed your passion for basketball you were never a fan from the jump.
