    So, one of my favorite Twitter handles is called Freezing Cold Takes (@oldtakesexposed). For those of you who aren't familiar, it's basically a handle that retweets predictions that turn out to be way off.

    I thought it'd be fun/funny to have the same type of thread here. So, the concept is simple: post old quotes or tweets of predictions by people (could even be yourself) that turned out to be way off. I intend it to be good-natured ribbing (I'm sure I've had some terrible ones myself) that can sort of go on indefinitely.

    I'll start with a few:
    On how the 2017 season will end up:




    On how the 2016 season would end up:


    On Nolan Berry:
    On Jorgenson:

    I am not a twitter follower but seeing Title with the BU on his twitter handle kinda pisses me off.

    Lots of gems in the Jorgensen recruiting thread.

    I miss Willis. I always thought he had money on the games and drank a tad too much while posting. I think he alluded to both, so his comments were, at times, intemperate to say the least. But he was passionate about Butler and was pretty funny. Title's ( Title in 2011") name seemed so unrealistic until it almost became pessimistic ( we came so close in 2010). I am not sure what soured him so much on Butler, because I did enjoy many of his posts on the old board. I did not reread the Jorgensen board but he has been quite a steal.

    Someone needs to make a .gif of that pull-up 30 footer on Saturday.

    Willis is still around and not a bad follow on Twitter (@deadboltwillie). I know he moved because of his job but still follows the Dawgs and bets on all kinds of sports.

    I specifically miss Willis showing up on here after a victory like a guy busting into a party already lit, stumbling through the front door, high fiving strangers. I thought he left the board after some altercation. Seems like the regulars all have their arch-enemies on here, but I liked his super fan rants FWIW...tho I’m also a Sonbog fan.

    I like the idea of this thread Hinkle, please continue. Sorry for diverting it for a minute.

    If someone knows Willis, tell him to come back. As he would say himself, he can be whacked, but he was always interesting.

    I was thinking of posting something to out myself for something I'd predicted before the season started, but I could never find the post. Anyway, I remember thinking that of the freshmen, JGB was going to end up earning the most playing time because of his size. ICE COLD.

    I miss butlerfan. He was/is a Butler fanatic/passionate fan. He also scouted high school players and had great incite.

    Here's another winner from the Paul Jorgensen recruiting thread. Especially great in that it's completely wrong about two players.

    I was told by someone Jorgensen would be pretty bad and posted that on his thread. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be completely and embarrassingly wrong.

    Hell, you can post my “Kelan will transfer post” from last season. A bit rash but in my defense, he was rather unhappy with Holt and I underestimated the quality of his character.

    That said, I think it’s pretty obvious that he’s one of the happiest players under Vall.
