You know what makes a football forum more active? Football.

Had to wait for the data to be ready, but according to my little spreadsheet o'Rep, the top 25 Rep people posted 7,384 times from May 1 through July 1. 


From May 1 through July 1 over the past several years, we've had this many posts from that top 25:


2019 - 5,574

2018 - 6,140

2017 - 8,909

2016 - 6,474

2015 - 5,602

2014 - 8,390


The two outliers are 2014 and 2017 - Riley's first year and Frost's first year. So that generates a bit of excitement. The other years hover in a range between 5,000 & 6,000 posts, which is probably pretty normal for a message board during the main sport's off season. 


So, honestly, there hasn't been a drop-off in posting year over year, and there has been above-average activity here this year compared to other years.  Probably because there's a lot of election, virus and protest talk in P&R, and a lot of talk throughout the board about whether we'll even have a season.


Seems like the idea of a "ghost town" is probably more in your head, @Hooked on Huskers

@knapplc Riley's first year was 2015. He was hired late 2014, which wouldn't include the May-Jul period.


Ope!  You're right. So the rise in posts would be the debate about how Bo needed to go, then Riley needed to go.
