This Forum Is Suffering One of the Worst Droughts of Real Realignment in 6 Years
So I want to announce a competition. I will award 3 Rep Points to the best made up and embellished realignment scenario that a poster can come up with. It must be in its own thread with a believable title and imagination and ability to shoot the breeze is expected. The winner won't be my decision however. When the "Latest Rumor" threads are created and after they've had time to receive discussion we will have a poll and vote on them as a board.

This is one time I won't make people defend pure B.S.!

I hope you guys have some fun with this, and if a poster gets sucked into believing it I want you to respond to their post with this emoji which will tag them as a sucker!04-chairshot


PS: I reserve the right to add additional Rep as I see fit.

Brilliantly played. Just enough plausibility to draw me in and make me go, "Whaaat ??!!"
After these past years of conference realignment, if you're not a little paranoid- then you haven't been paying attention.

I thought about calling it the "Consummate Troll Competition", but thought that it would be even more fun with more points awarded for those who got bites and reeled them in.

The only realignment had to with a single sport moving, a few D2 schools moving up, schools closing or heavy realignments at lower levels.

Some guys just get a hoot out of seeing our posters quoted on other message boards by somebody with a hook in the corner of their lip.

Best to not get too many out on one single day. I'll wait a while.

I think this would have worked a little better if it wasn't public that it's a fake-news contest. Once you realize the pill is a placebo, it loses its imagined effectiveness.

Or another way: You can get hooked by one April Fools Day story, but you won't get hooked by two.

That said, the Great Northern story got me. But I didn't know what we were doing at the time.

It'll work fine as long as posters don't talk about it in their threads which are separate from these instructions.

Besides, I am doing searches to see if some of these pop up elsewhere. Bonus points if they do.

And once it gets started well I'll hide this thread. Let's give it until the end of June. That'll give folks time to spread it out.

What if this backfires and no one wants to comment on anything for fear of being duped?

If they are that unsure of themselves then who cares? Life's a roller coaster and we are all getting cranked up to the highest hill. You have 2 choices. Raise your hands and enjoy the ride because it's always over too soon, or puke your guts out and ruin it for everyone seated behind you. Which is it going to be?

I already have people took my posts to another forum about schools adding football, or schools moving up. It seems other forums do take me seriously than on here when I am right most of the time.

You're bored so you destroy the credibility and utility of the board?

This has become a forum for creative writing. I have no interest in that.

There's nothing going on until June. Besides we have serious threads, you just have to be a bit more discerning.

Are you kidding, people already add endless comments to the most asinine threads that aren't even trying to be satirical. Just scroll through a few pages of old threads and you'll see threads based on internet articles more than a year old, threads based on somebody's dumb blog post on another site, threads based on misreading a news article, all of which have more than 100 comments.
