re: Final drive was brilliant
And for whatever it's worth we have had 5 new Gamecock posters be granted access here over the last 5 days. Not sure what's caused the "surge."

4 of them have Cocky at the beginning of their handles. Not sure if that's just a coincidence or there's some group trolling in bound.

I’m not a troller , been a member of GC since 2012 and Cocky_11 is what I used on that site and is the best I could come up with. You post one thing over there and you get smart arse answers left and right. Always looked at the forums on the rant just never joined until recently. Thanks for letting me in but once again I’m not a troller.

I'm perfectly okay with people having and sharing whatever opinions they have of coaches, admins, players, etc. Doesn't matter if they are positive or negative or whether I personally agree with them or not.


And this had always been my experience here as well. I thought that it was clear that my comment wasn't to be taken seriously as I obviously don't wish death on KS or Muschamp.

The great Rooster himself was/is known for his oft controversial diatribe. In terms of the lower population on the board some left with the rise of the Clemson population. Others, specifically my personal HOF poster CIYE, was tired of admins censoring his ability to post/troll other fanbases specifically the dawgs.

In summation I do indeed apologize for the spirit in which the post was taken, but if I'm honest, I'm unlikely to shy away from provocative posts in the future.

Not responding to you but just putting it out there, is CockyTalk officially dead for good?

You can expect more of the same in the SEC Rant. But at least it comes from a diverse fan base.


And on this board we generally keep away from that.

From what I remember, and correct me if I'm wrong, the guy who ran CT had a little bit of a meltdown and shut the site down overnight. I believe I remember there being some message where he said he wouldn't bring it back up until Muschamp was gone. I think there was more to it, but that's just the gist that I can remember off the top of my head.

Yes that happened but also it was the middle of changes due to some crypto currency mining hacking

I had around 10K posts on CT.

Cockytalk was hacked by a group of Indonesian hackers. I'm not really sure what their motivation was. Somewhere I used have a screenshot of the day the hackers took over, but I think I've since deleted it.

Apparently something during all of this, the sites owner/originator passed away (I do not know the circumstances there). His brother started running the site.

CT was offline for about 6 months as they rebuilt the database and increased security. I think they got online again sometime last spring/summer. It lasted until the UNC game and then the current site owner had a hissy fit and pulled the plug on it.

I've heard talk they'll bring it back "when Muschamp is gone" but at this point, so much damage to the brand has been, that I'm not sure anybody would go back there to post now. It was a text book example of how to destroy a profitable internet site.

I really don't think it was all that profitable. It had traffic but in all honesty, not that much traffic.
