This is the dirt sheet on opposing players produced and handed out to O Zone members before games.  I've done it the last two years, and will continue to do this year through 1st semester... I will be graduating before 2nd semester, so I am looking for volunteers to take over.  

Whether there is heavy interest or minimal interest in taking this over, I think the best way to continue to publish this would be to start threads on this board for upcoming games to gather dirt on opposing teams.  This would allow us to find the best dirt possible on each team.  
If there is an interest, we could even use a committee approach to put this together with approved editors adding info within Google Documents.  This would allow multiple people to add info with the actual printer of the Bulletin making final corrections before it is finalized.  I'd be willing to set this up if there is interest.
Thoughts?

One other thing...
I've had a lot of issues printing this (battles with the marketing department's printer) over the past 2 years so I am going to attempt to print this the day before games this fall to avoid gameday issues.  I should have done this before but was lazy about walking to the Convo just to print this off... My apologies.  If possible, future publishers of this should attempt to do this so you aren't racing with this printer and its 15 page per minute pace... (if it is working at all)

It isn't a hard job, but it is one that is important to keeping our atmosphere strong in the Convo.  The sooner we can get someone else established to take this over next semester, the better.  Just so I can show you how to work that stupid printer....  I greatly enjoyed digging through Summit and Portage County police records... Any guesses what two schools reside in those counties? (hint, they are very close together)

Not in the O-Zone (I'm too busy being in the 110), but I would be interested in helping about a bit.  I've gone to pretty much every home game (save for maybe 1 or 2) for the past 3 seasons, and I love it when literature is offered.  I wanna make sure this keeps on happening.

There will be a dirt sheet for basketball, hopefully for every home game. A friend of mine and I have been discussing plans for one like we had 2 years ago, when the starting 5 and coach were included

I decided against posting the finished version on BA to avoid negative publicity for printing a dirt sheet.  

Some solid stuff for Portland.  No criminal problems for the players, but I found at least one thing I found hilarious on social media.

I'm hoping we save "nasty" stuff for the "nasty" ones - "Kron, Can't, Terd, etc. The Pilots look pretty harmless and innocent to me.............Noise alone should get the 6th man job done well.............

There isn't enough dirt on Portland to mention them in the same thread as Akron or Kent, let alone the same post.

99% of the material in this version is funny.  1% could possibly be considered "nasty," and it is on the weak side of the nasty scale.  The Portland coach seems to recruit good kids.  Teams like this are a struggle to find enough dirt to make it interesting...
Teams like Akron/Kent are a struggle because I somehow have to limit the content to fit on 1 page when half the team has a criminal record 10 pages long.

If that doesn't ease your fears, it is Dad's weekend.  This crowd has never been one of the ruthless ones..

Bump. Whomever has taken this over or will in the future PM me. I'd like to support in a non-content related way.
