    With all the off season turmoil, suspensions, missed practices and the dark cloud of the NCAA investigation into the Sharkfin football program it will be interesting to see if Freeze can keep the team from ripping apart at the seams. The lowly Broncos from Idaho may actually have a chance.

      Are you as much a jerk in real-life as you are hiding behind an anonymous name on a website?

    The thing about internet trolls is that they are so starved for attention that they relish even the negative attention. The only way to deal with them is to ignore them because they stick around if you talk to them any at all. I read a study recently that showed that almost all of them are mentally ill. It’s sad really if you think about it. A few ways to spot them: They always try to stir things up. If you respond to them they know that they are succeeding at stirring things up and they actually get aroused and post more. They tend to change online names rather than sticking with one. They often boast about some important or exotic job. They will sometimes boast about wealth or investment in the stock market. They will sometimes talk about exotic or important travel. Once again, the best way to deal with them is to ignore them and pray that they will get the professional help that they need.

      Erastus, my dear confidante, you have missed the boat, entirely. I am not a troll, I am truth seeker! I will not go quietly into the night. I will not stop…I am good for you, I’m a good thing..the spotlight to show the truth, hidden in the dark corners of the Sharkfin nation.

        No, you are an idiot with no life who comes on here under various fake names because you want other people to be as miserable as you. But please do not stop. I find your post quite amusing.

        Check your own school and coach first before you bash someone else’s. Have some respect.

    Fake names? Miserable? You just described Ole Miss. Fake championship banners, miserable tradition of losing seasons and a hypocritical football coach. Please don’t stop believing your own lies, America finds it amusing.
