    Are you kidding me?

    After a tough loss, the whole front page is full of meltdown. KL suck, this loss is on fred, booker play time, etc, etc, etc.

    After a great win, the top two thread when I opened CF were All time best movie villians, and distance learning, what are my options. Don't forget Snow day mischief.

    What KL did

    Magee was huge

    Niang plays above his age

    We will miss Babb

    The transformation of KL

    Ejim 1st team big 12 next year?

    These are all thread ideas that would get good positive comments. Instead we just fill the forum with negativity after a loss. How bout we focus some energy on the good?


    Ill put any dollar that if I get this ball again, Long said, Its going in.

    That's because most of the people who make negative threads are the posters who only show up when we lose. And clonedude.

    Re: Are you kidding me?

    Because after a loss we need a place to vent.

    Re: Are you kidding me?

    Sorry to the OP but he is the one making negative posts when we win. The rest at least wait till we lose.

    Re: Are you kidding me?

    A lot of people use this place to vent after a loss. Hard to get in big debates over how good we look. Just enjoy the win!

    Are we still out on Vaughn. That was your claim 8 months ago. You wait for what again?

    Re: Are you kidding me?

    The post-loss whiny threads are obnoxious (especially the ones with very specific "should have done this" comments or that slam individual players), but they wouldn't be as bad if people didn't keep them alive by posting in them. I'm guilty of arguing back a lot of the time, but I should probably just ignore the complaint threads and let them fall off the front page.
