    Default About the new board name (cougarstadium.com)

    We are pleased to announce a new name for our forum: CougarStadium.com. The new name has been linked to this site, but it may take a few days for the change to propagate through the domain name servers. We are trying to set this up so that the old domain name continues to point to this site and we hope the change will go smoothly.

    The primary reason for the change is that we believe it is in our best long-term interests to go forward with a BYU-themed forum. With the recent changes in conference affiliation and with the decreasing number of scheduled games (especially in football), the BYU-Utah rivalry is on a steady downward spiral. The old domain name implied a sports forum dedicated to two fan bases. Pulling that off in effective manner is difficult to accomplish under the best of circumstances, but it is especially problematic when the rivalry is dying. We believe that we can best achieve a healthy and sustainable dynamic in the long term by having a domain name and theme dedicated to a single school.

    We understand that this decision may be disappointing to some of our long-time Ute friends. We want you to know that you will always be welcome here and we hope you will stick around. And you are always free to start new threads related to Utah sports if you wish. We do not foresee any major changes to the layout or organization of the board and we will continue to operate the board using the same style of light moderation we have always used.

    Best regards,

    The CS Executive Committee

    Sorry about the rough transition there, folks. I thought I had it all figured out but I missed a couple of steps. Seems to be working now.

    So you are just giving a big cyber middle finger to the ute fans on here?

    Seems like a petulant move by the committee. I realize you own the forum and can do what you want. I am also thankful for what you have done. This re-branding is however very out of character and completely unnecessary.

    So, what are we calling it now, CS? I think CUF is burned in at this point.

    It's not April 1st. I don't get the change.

    That is my biggest concern. I suspect our Ute brethren and sisteren will still hang around (they were there on CG, after all), so I don't anticipate a loss of meaningful membership. But not calling it C-U-F will be nearly impossible.

    Let me say what everyone is thinking: THIS MAKES NO SENSE. We need a better explanation as to why this decision has been made. Don't sugar-coat it -- give us the real story, please.

    Hey ute fans:

    This may not be much of a Ute board, but it is also not much of a sports board. So this doesn't quite fit any better.

    The name change doesn't bother me. It's JL's board and he's free to call it whatever he wants to call it.

    Whatever it's called, it's better than CB and utefans.

    cougarlifestyles.com would result in a lot more hits on google, which would be in the board's long-term best interests.

    Then again, we have an active Ute, but not a Cougar signing day thread right now.

    Hard to talk sports when we have someone as smart as you already giving all the answers. Sometimes we like go just sit back and watch genius flow.

    I predict that Jay Santos will raise his right hand to sustain this one.

    I have two concerns:

    1) The aforementioned nickname quandry
    2) The filter at my work has three levels of screening, that are somewhat arbitrary. Level 1 is no screening. cougaruteforum.com and cougarboard are in this level (although, since we use IEv7, CB is basically unusable). Level 3 is complete screening, site blocked. Cougarguard is in this category, or, believe you me, I would still be over there. Then there is level 2, which gives you a message saying, basically: "This looks like a site that we don't like. We recommend you don't go there", and you then need to hit a link to continue on. The new URL gave me this screen when I hit the "New Posts" link. It always makes me nervous to get that screen.

    In understand. Sorry for that. But sometimes a genius like me wants to sit back and read about sports. So I don't like when we lose sports geniuses like Hot Lunch and cougjunkie

    If we lose Clark then this was the worst decision in the history of the Internet.

    Interesting both those guys were willing to have discussions and weren't generally impressed with themselves. They must be a different strain of genius than you.

    Hmm. I'm not willing to have a discussion? I'd have thought the opposite.

    I like it as well, but it needs to go all the way across the screen and not have the grey area...

    As far as nicknames.. CUF will remain and be used.. What's the big deal...

    EDIT:

    Oh, and if it is up for discussion to rename.. I like "cougarfansandonebuckeye.com
