Insider Info Level 0-10

Post by FeartheFro » December 15th, 2020, 11:23 am

As I read this message board, I find myself thinking "what inside source does this person have and how much do they really know". Maybe I'm alone in this and this thread will die a quick death. What I'm hoping is that people will make their inside source level known to the board. For example, if you ARE the John Hartwell, your source level would be a 10. If you are a coach, your source level would be a 9, if you are a player, your source level would be a 8, and so on. I'll start. My source level would currently be a 0. At one time it was around a 4 as I had a good friend who had a son that played on the football team and often shared info with me.

I am a 0. But I regurgitate enough stuff from this this place that my friends that do not read this board think I am a 10.

This. This board is the source of all Aggie info I get, which I then share with interested parties.

I am a Zero on a good day and probably somewhere in the negatives most days. However after spending some time on the board reading everything I can I feel like I am somewhere around 1 or 1 1/2.

I once worked in the athletic department but that was years ago. So outside of paying attention on here and Twitter, I don't have insider info.

It actually would blow up the board if he saw a prominent football or basketball player in crutches when their injury hadn't been reported yet.

The thing is, different people have access to different things. Like people who work in the university human resources department would have access to new coaches being hired, but lack the same access to where players move in the depth chart. Athletic trainers have access to players being available based on being medically cleared, but lack the same ability to find out about players being out cause of discipline or moved down the depth chart cause of performance. Players would have access to if other players are leaving, returning, undecided, but lack the medical information trainers have. But even the players and support staff lack access to if people we are recruiting will come or not.

And there are moves within the AD's administration office and things like scheduling that people who work there have access to that players don't.

There are some people that would be a 10 with some matters, while a 4 or 2 or 0 with other things. And things that would have level 10 people and level 2 or 3 people.

I had some level ten stuff when I was at the prosecutor's office. Some has been mentioned here and some never came out. Now I have trouble even watching games due to time zones.

Tell your son he failed us with the McChesney situation.

I will give him a pass just this once. He might not have seen McChesney if McChesney was behind a tree or a pole or something, or perhaps McChesney had turned sideways and disappeared...

If Hartwell is 10 you have got to be at least an 11.

I mean you say things way before he does, I am pretty sure we know where Hartwell gets his info.

I have a suspicion on 22 as well that he has to withhold information sometimes as well which would put it way ahead of when you hear it.
