Colorado and the Portal

I didn’t mean to make that second paragraph larger font than the first paragraph. I put a dash between the last line and my name and it made the last paragraph larger. It isn’t for emphasis.

DIscourse uses several different formatting systems, what you ran into was ‘markdown’ coding, which means a line that starts with two or more dashes makes the previous paragraph bold formatted. There are a number of other markdown codes, if you’re interested, here’s a guide to them. If nothing else it’ll tell you what not to do. :slight_smile:

I’ve had to change my standard .sig because I was using two dashes between the last paragraph and my name.

I seem to recall there was a lot of turnover when Frost arrived, and Hoiberg had maybe one or two holdover players on his first team, and I think one of those didn’t play much the previous season due to an injury. (But a basketball team is a lot smaller.)

Sanders may have set a new level for extreme roster turnover, but roster makeovers seem more common than they were before, or maybe we just all know about them more because the transfer portal numbers get (unofficially) reported so much.

I think the ESPN article cited upthread said there were a handful of players who are choosing to stay at CU but not play sports. That could happen at Nebraska as well.

Thanks for the info. I will read up on it.

I do remember under Frost and Hoiberg players were leaving but if I recall correctly that was the player’s decision and not the coach’s decision. Sanders is cleaning house all by himself if I understand correctly.

Discourse has a lot more capabilities than the Mailman package I’ve been using for around 20 years. But so far forwarding posts from discourse to the old list server seems to be working fairly well. In case that 20 year old server goes down, I’m taking periodic backups of all the email addresses.

I may make a small change to the discourse server at some point, one that would make it easier for me to open the list up to public read-only access but keep them separate (Northwestern and Husker lists.) There are two or three ways to do this, some more work (for me) than the others.

The mailman archives have always been open to the public, but I don’t think they’ve been used much.

Interesting story on the numbers of the roster turnover at Colorado and some overall numbers.

Here’s a real problem for Primetime. I hope a little levity is appreciated.

Could you afford to feed him? They eat about 24 pounds of plant material a day, mostly grass.
