That's me .... according to a fan on Tigernet.
Check this out: http://www.tigernet.com/forums/message.jspa?messageID=13479316
Anyone with a brain should be able to tell I don't dislike ANY team.
If any of you know this guy, please make sure he is getting the help he needs from doctors.

Good grief. For your own sanity, you should just avoid that place, like most other folks with more than four teeth in their head. Sad, sad place over there. We are all thankful for this nest.
Tigernet is a complete joke...its free to post so any moron can post and I would venture to say a good 50% arent even Clemson fans.
Here's what you guys will find funny: Carvell is the one that told me about that post.
How the heck did he find it?
Does he go around looking for bad things?
Shocker that Carvell noticed it.
Barbell is a complete hack
Carvell actually has a Tnet account I'm told and used some of the posts he saw and gave them to Nkemdiche's mom, he is dirty but also quite smart in reporting these things.
Hope you guys understand, but I'm friendly with everyone in the business. I do my thing, and let them do theirs. I try to stay away form drama.
Michael doesn't bother me. Always been nice to me.
You'd think I'd hate Bartow. Not so. Funny guy. Worked with him at Rivals. Like him, too, even though he's our competitor.
LOL I don't even read the message boards on tigernet.....I would've never thought someone had you pegged as a closet dawg, Keith. Funny stuff.
Carvell is a POS, though, 100%.
You just couldn't resist with that last line
Keith it's the wild west over there. That's tame compared to some days lol?
I remember when I used to get on Tigernet every day. Loved that site. Followed Roscoe Crosby recruitment on tigernet.
You have to admit TNet is the best place to debate "what color jerseys should Clemson wear" or my favorite TNet topic "should we ban the Woo Hoo?" Can't remember the last time I actually got relevant info from that site. We appreciate what you do Keith, even if you love UGA. LOL.
Been accused of being a homer for .....
Like I tell people, I went to Florida but could care less. Wanted to go to Miami, but my dad was fighting brain cancer and was in Gainesville. Made sense to be with family.
Most fans can't understand how a person could NOT be a fan.
But my only concerns are reporting the news and gettin' paaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiddddddd.
Keith, you're more than welcome to become a Clemson 'homer' if you would like.

Carvell is a hack who is horrible at his job.
the woo hoo should definitely be banned, but that's neither here nor there.
I also support this 110%... Don't be afraid of your true feelings, Keith!
It really is gay
Trust me, you don't want Homers EVER covering your team.
A true fan -- and I know all of you are -- should always want nothing but the unfiltered truth.
BTW, I've had multiple college coaches tell me they'd rather us not care than be "fans" of the teams we write about. Fans tend to love them when it's good, and crush them when it's bad.
With a guy like me, they know I don't care either way, so they know there's no agenda ever.
I fully agree that a full out homer site is not good. That's why I've never been to Roy's site.
But I can also say that I get somewhat tired of all the political correctness talk over here regarding things like Carvell, Ole Miss, UF, OSU. Some times, it is what it is. Explaining it away becomes disingenuous. Carvell is a tool with a hard on for Clemson. Ole Miss has some selling points for sure, but they also have their pocketbooks out in full force. UF can lick my danglies (no other point, I'm just tired of them this cycle). And OSU is making a point of offering everybody we offer within a day. That is not coincidence. That is not our "great" evaluations and they happen to agree. They think they can close against us, so they are following us around.
I truly appreciate you not being a homer, but I'd love for you to quit straddling the fence on every subject under the sun as well.
Just my opinion.
Hard to make 100% definitive statements when I don't know 100% of the facts.
In recruiting, there are 2 sides (and often more) to every story.
That is why I don't take sides at all.
As a Clemson fan, you often probably are only getting one side of the story. And as a fan, you'll probably assume the best of your guys and the worst of the other guys. Human nature.
But over on other sites, fans of other schools make the same accusations against Clemson that many here make against their team
Again, that's why I don't get involved in the fighting.
Much of recruiting is he said/he said.
I try to present as many different angles/and possibilities as I can to offer up an unbiased picture of a situation.
If you'd only like Clemson's side of the situation, that's not what I'm here for. Quite honestly, it's not fair to you if I did that.
What you see as straddling the fence, I see as keeping things close to center because we DON'T know all the facts. A lot of people will act like they do, but they don't.
I agree but the accusations against Ole miss are not just coming from Clemson fans even people inside grayson can see it. They will get theirs.
I agree both sides have their own opinions of the "facts".
I will say it like this... if I'm pissed at somebody or think something underhanded is going on in real life... i don't mind my wife pointing out where I may or may not be being reasonable. To a point. But at some point, when things are obvious to me, she needs to just let me think what is obvious, whether she wants to be the good guy or not.
Carvell for instance... cmon man. I know you can't be out there making enemies in this business. But his ax is obvious to see. Just let it be. Just let us hate on him.
Again, I respect the position you are in, and I know fans are unreasonable many times. But many of us are not new to this game. We have reasons to feel how we feel, and most are not just snap judgement type things. Many of your posts come across as "we don't know how this game is played", and I can assure you many of us have a pretty good idea.
My sentiments exactly. I'm very new here (2nd post), but this site/forum seems to give the most balanced and timely updates. Between this site and TCI, I feel well informed. Tnet got extremely frustrating to me during the days/week leading up to Nkemdiche's de-commitment. I often wondered if Tnet had some influence on his mom's perception of Clemson.
