Brilliant move to make TUF exciting again.

How do you do the formatting on your posts BTW? It looks like a lot of work and very consistent.
Are you using a script to spice it up?

- I use the formation option of the forum. Its far easer today than used to be on the older forum.

I used to watch TUF sometimes, was fun but then I fell off the wagon completely.

This might be a good one to get back on

The undefeated angle is interesting, and I like both Stipe and Daniel (will cheer for Daniel though to win)
