Since BRZ has been down for a while and the fragmentation between MT fans continues to exist, shouldn't we pursue other options for uniting our online fan base?

I've been on here for years and would love to help grow the MT presence not only in the main CUSA forum but also here in the MT-specific one.

RE: Forums
I agree. There aren't enough online posting MT fans to warrant 2 separate boards. The traffic on both sites is considerably low, even during the season. One of the two boards (gomiddle) even combined all sports to keep traffic up. I like both boards the same but I'd like to see us all under one roof.

That would be the ideal. If we were able to function here, perhaps we could continue our discussions on individual sports like we've got on BRZ (I love to comment on the men's and ladies' basketball threads).

I'd be happy as a clam if everything just moved here... I read both the other forums and post on BRZ, but I'm on the CUSA board all the time because this is the biggest and most consistent conversation for the Raiders. I say let those other guys do what they want, but this is a perfectly fine place for us to talk, and we know it won't go down (BRZ) or hide info behind a paywall (Rivals).

If we could actually get active on here and post more topics and info I bet people would show up more than they do normally. UAB is a good example of that, since they've got a bunch of fans on here and in their team-centric forum.

I love the CUSA board here and I think the MT board has the chance to be quite good as well.

I like the functionality of this board. I wish there was more traffic on it.

There are atleast 10-15 regulars posting on the CUSA boards, i'd think we can make a go of this.

Well there's already been what, 5 of us posting here the last day or so?

That's a good start already!

Was never really into the recruiting sites.

I pay attention on signing day, and that's about it.

I think Twitter has hurt the message boards, as well-- but Twitter does provide a quick source of information and "scoop"

agreed. a few fans do a lot of work, but i don't see what exactly rivals/scout does/did for MTSU fans other than ask for money. I'd rather have a completely free and open site where all talk is welcome in all forums... none of this secrecy behind a paywall.
