is now up and running. Comments for desired changes much appreciated. Probably needs a "No WIU Affiliation" disclaimer for one. My goal is to automatically include pertinent content regarding athletics and university news, upcoming events, oustanding athletic performances, motivational quotes, etc. Every Thursday, I will try to post something from the Courier archives about events from his day. How easy some of this content can be pulled in without this becoming yet another non-paying job for me remains to be seen.

Not real happy with the @RockColonel handle. I would rather it be @ColonelRock. I am not sure how it ended up with that and whether it can be changed without creating a whole new account.

Not a huge deal, but I'd update the background picture. Never a fan of those uniforms and that was a 3-8 team that only beat no scholly Butler by 8, DII Indy by 10 and 1-10 South Dakota.

Thoughts:
Current team

Action photo verse a big ten opponent or NIU

Old school photo

Believe there's a banner/wall with in the locker room with NFL players and a possible picture out there
Think Purple...lets think Gold as in Championships!!!

looks like @ColonelRock is already taken. Maybe that is why is gave me what it gave me. ColonelRayRock is available. what do you think?

I went ahead and made the change for now at least.

Maybe we should poll LeatherneckNation to see. I am sort of leaning to ColonelRayRock because it less formal and rolls off the tounge easier. I can be easily swayed either direction. After further review, I think the statuesque figure demands the more formal route.

You can set up a poll on a thread. Let me know if you need any help doing that.

It seems like there is a 15 character limit on the twitter handle.

"colonel rock" search for me brings it fairly close to the top (colonel ray rock is the one you want)
