    Isn't the "Off-topic" thread for... ahhh…issues that are off-topic?

    OK….probably just me being wound a bit too tight, but I laugh/scratch my head sometimes at some of the threads that land here as "off-topic". For example, if another thread gets started here related to conference realignment, I'm tempted to PM the OP and ask them what the heck they consider "on-topic"?!?!

    Is it just me?

    Anyway…glad it is Friday and glad to get this off my chest.

    So please humor me. Am I being obvious, predictable, or blatantly false with my thread?

    I do love the irony that as I question this very subject I see there is an "off-topic" thread now entitled "Cyclone Sports" here.

    You can't make this stuff up!
