Now that we have a new, legit message board, we need to get a legit web address.

KeaneyBlue.com

If you haven't already, please take a few minutes to read this outstanding piece on Frank Keaney from a Sports Illustrated issue in 1978. All Rhody Hoops fans should be familiar with this Hall of Fame coach who literally changed the sport into what it is today....

Don't care about the name, just wanted to say thanks to ATP for organizing another move and to all the posters making the migration over. It's a new day in Ram Land!

ATP, PM me on the recruiting threads - I'd like to help bring the most pertinent ones over here.

I personally HATE faithful, unless it's Marianne Faithful back when.
Sounds like a church website.
Rhodyhoops has been associated with a lot of mediocre message boards from the 90's.
Someone had this on the old board....EternalRamNation.

Rhody Faithful or Rhody Nation makes the most sense to me, just because theoretically, something besides basketball could be good enough someday to attract a decent amount of posters. While it definitely seems unlikely now, I've been a participant in other online message boards where they sort of grow and mutate beyond their original purposes.

Test...
Rhody nation is ok, but everyone has it.
Will we owe shaugnessey a copyright fee?
Yankee universe?
I'd like to pay tribute to Keaney, or the fast break.
But it would also be good to avoid limiting the name to just b-ball.

Rhodyhoops was the name of the website I had way back in 95 and 96. A buddy of mine was living in London at the time and we set it up so he could get info on what was going on with the team. I would post a recap of PC and URI games.

I agree 100 percent. We gotta do better than that.

I like a nod to our history and Keaney.

This is kind of off-the-wall, but what about a take-off of "The Firehouse Gang" .... the nickname that Keaney's squads had back in the '40s. Firehouse.com and Firehousegang.com is already taken, but you could have something like firehousebball.com (available).

If you think it's too corny, I understand. But my thought is incorporating something unique to URI basketball history in the domain name.

I like the unique names eg something to do with Keany, but I think making it easily available to the entire bb world should be our goal.

That is the reason that I like Rhody nation. Overused, Yes How many big name programs use XXXXNation?

I like this. The problem is without the capital letters its hard to read, and I don't think you can make web addresses case sensitive.

I also agree that the whole "nation" thing is played out.

What about letsgorhody.com ? Is it too similar to gorhody.com? The thing about that is that every team's official site is go_______.com
