    I'm perplexed as heckfire at the need for the change, but whatever. Tapatalk is all messed up though and I'm logged on through my computer during the day for the first time in forever.

    Not to pile on too much, but I always thought "CUF" was a damn cool acronym. And I've never had any sense of the activity on CUF being affected by any "downward spiral" of the rivalry, at all.

    I like beefytee's explanation: Jeff forgot to renew the cougaruteforum.com domain name.

    Okay cougarstadium.com is not going to attract anyone new that cougaruteforum didnt attract. LEts be honest, CUF was mostly head about from Cougarboard as a place where there arent dumb mods and self righteous idiots.

    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.
    Work filters are my concern as well. CUF was golden, not sure if this new one will live or not. They can be a fickle bunch. Right now I have to sign in to view the site, but it's only good for a few minutes.

    I was lazy and should have looked it up.

    It doesn't expire until Nov. 12 2014.

    I should have remembered that this site started in November as well.

    Not a fan. The Ute members are a huge part of what makes this site good.

    It would have been nice to do a little checking around with people to see what they think before taking an action that is bound to be unpopular with a lot of folks who contribute here, or try to. In the words of Dan Patrick, "They could have done it better."

    You don't like it because you're a Ute at heart.

    I like the name change. I always thought it was odd that the board name reflected both schools while the split in fandom and participation on the board isn't nearly close to a 50/50 split.

    What I like about this board has nothing to do about byu, utah, or sports. It's all the other stuff.

    Are more changes coming? I don't get this at all....
    I don't care what it's called, but if the purpose of the forum changes, then that's something else.
